What Is Microneedling and Why Has It Become So Popular?

If you have concerns about your skin such as acne scars, loose skin, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, etc. micro-needling may be for you! Micro-needling is a non-surgical treatment that helps to produce more natural collagen in your skin. It will rejuvenate your skin without the need for a facelift or any other surgical procedures. Micro-needling is great for all skin types and skin concerns. 

How Does Micro-needling Work?

Micro-needling works by using a group of tiny needles to penetrate the skin. By penetrating the skin you are manipulating it to have a wound-healing response. When the skin experiences a wound, our body’s natural response is to produce more collagen and elastin to heal it. This is exactly what happens during the micro-needling process. 

Collagen is a protein in the skin and is so important when it comes to clear and healthy skin. While our body produces collagen naturally, as we age it produces less and less. This is why skin ages over time and wrinkles form. After the micro-needling procedure is complete, new collagen and elastin rush to the area to help heal your skin. New skin cells will form and your skin will be fuller, smoother, and have a youthful glow. Micro-needling is not done in just one session, you’ll need a few sessions to get the full benefit of the treatment. 

Why Is Micro-Needling a Popular Rejuvenation Option?

While there are many skin rejuvenation treatments out there, micro-needling has become one of the most popular. Here are a few reasons why people are choosing micro-needling over other options. 

Safe For All Skin Types 

Micro-needling is extremely safe for all types of skin. Some other skin rejuvenation treatments don’t work will all skin types. If your skin is on the darker side, some laser treatments can affect the tone of your skin and create dark patches. 

Micro-needling also reduces stretch marks and the appearance of acne scars. The extra collagen production will smooth out the skin, healing wounds and scars. Other skin treatments don’t always improve your skin if you scar easily. Micro-needling is considered one of the safest skin rejuvenation treatments. 

Healing Nutrients Are Deeply Embedded Into The Skin

Micro-needling helps the skin in absorbing important nutrients. The serum used for the treatment includes vitamins A, C, and E which are crucial for repairing and restoring tissue. These nutrients get deep into the skin and work to keep the skin healthy and give it a natural glow. 

Easy and Quick Recovery

Micro-needling is also extremely popular because of its easy and quick recovery time. Some other skin rejuvenation treatments can take weeks to recover. While your skin may be a little sensitive and feel sunburnt for a few days after micro-needling, you can get right back to your busy schedule right after the treatment! 

It is important to wear sunscreen during the micro-needling healing process as you need to protect the new skin cells that were made. Within two weeks you’ll be able to see all the benefits from the treatment.
