Are you tired of spending endless hours and money on skincare products that don’t work? It is time to try microneedling! This ground-breaking skincare method has grown in popularity recently, and for a good reason.
Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive treatment that uses tiny needles to create microchannels in the skin, triggering the body’s natural healing process and stimulating collagen production. The result? A brighter, smoother, and more youthful-looking complexion.
In this post, we will look into the benefits of microneedling and everything you need to know about this game-changing skincare treatment. Prepare to wave dull skin a proper goodbye and welcome a radiant complexion!
What is Microneedling?
Using a device, small punctures are made in the skin during the minimally invasive skincare procedure known as microneedling. These punctures, also known as microchannels, stimulate the body’s natural healing process and promote the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that keep the skin youthful and plump. As a result, microneedling can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and hyperpigmentation.
A skilled professional can perform Microneedling in a med spa like Resa Medical Aesthetics. While the procedure may cause some discomfort, it is generally well-tolerated, and most people experience little to no downtime. With its numerous benefits and minimal side effects, microneedling has become famous for those looking to improve their skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance.
How does microneedling works?
Microneedling creates tiny punctures in the skin using a device with small, sterile needles. These punctures are designed to trigger the skin’s natural healing response, which can help to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. Proteins called collagen and elastin keep the skin elastic, smooth, and firm.
As we age, the production of these proteins naturally declines, leading to the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. By stimulating collagen and elastin production, microneedling can help improve the appearance of these signs of aging and skin texture and tone.
What does microneedling do to your skin?
Microneedling offers a range of benefits for the skin, including:
Increased collagen production.
Microneedling helps stimulate collagen production, a protein essential for healthy, youthful-looking skin. Collagen provides the skin with structure and helps to keep it firm, smooth, and elastic. By increasing collagen production, microneedling can help improve the
skin’s overall texture and appearance.
Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
As we age, the production of collagen and elastin naturally declines, leading to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling can help to stimulate collagen production, which can, in turn, help to reduce the appearance of these signs of aging.
Improved skin texture and tone.
Microneedling can help to improve the overall texture and tone of the skin. By creating microchannels in the skin, microneedling can help to promote the production of new skin cells, leading to a brighter, smoother complexion.
Reduced appearance of scars.
Microneedling can also be used to reduce the appearance of scars, including acne and surgical scars. By stimulating collagen production, microneedling can help to improve the texture and color of scars, making them less noticeable.
Reduced appearance of stretch marks.
Stretch marks are a common skin concern, particularly among women. Microneedling can help reduce stretch marks’ appearance by stimulating collagen production and promoting new skin cell growth.
Reduced appearance of hyperpigmentation.
Hyperpigmentation, or dark spots on the skin, can be caused by various factors, including sun damage, hormonal changes, and acne. Microneedling can help reduce hyperpigmentation by promoting the growth of new skin cells and improving overall skin texture and tone.
Who should consider microneedling?
Although most individuals find microneedling safe and efficient, some skin types and conditions may respond better. It is vital to remember that not everyone may be a good candidate for microneedling. Therefore, speaking with a certified skincare expert before beginning any procedure is recommended.
Microneedling can benefit various skin types, including those with dry, oily, or combination skin. However, those with sensitive skin may want to be cautious, as microneedling can sometimes cause temporary redness or irritation. People with darker skin tones may also want to be careful, as microneedling can sometimes cause hyperpigmentation in these skin types.
Is microneedling safe?
While microneedling is generally considered safe, there are some potential risks and safety considerations. At Resa Medical Aesthetics, we always ensure that the microneedling device is sterile and that proper hygiene practices are followed to avoid infection. Additionally, microneedling should be avoided in individuals with certain skin conditions, such as active acne or eczema, as it can exacerbate these conditions.
Those with a history of keloid scarring may also not be good candidates for microneedling. It is always best to consult a qualified skincare professional before undergoing microneedling treatment.
What to expect after a microneedling session?
Following microneedling, patients may experience redness, swelling, and mild discomfort, similar to a sunburn. Patients may resume regular activities within 24 to 48 hours after experiencing these side effects, which usually go away within a few days.
After treatment, it’s crucial to stay out of the sun and use sunscreen with a broad spectrum and an SPF of at least 30. Patients should also avoid using harsh skincare products or exfoliants for at least 48 hours after microneedling.
