Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that enhances the tone and texture of your skin by encouraging your body to produce more collagen. Read on to learn more about what this all-natural treatment can do for you.
Microneedling is one of the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic treatments, and it’s not surprising why — it’s safe and effective, and you can receive it multiple times until you reach your desired results. No cosmetic surgery is needed!
Our team at Sage Wellness and Medspa in Plantation, Florida, sheds light on the many benefits of microneedling and what it can do for your skin.
The miracle of microneedling: collagen
Collagen induction therapy, known as microneedling, rejuvenates your skin by tapping into natural healing mechanisms. During a microneedling session, board-certified nurse practitioner Yvette Gonzalez rolls an FDA-cleared hand-held device over your skin. The device, covered with tiny needles, creates micro-injuries in your skin. Each micro-injury activates your healing response, triggers collagen production, and helps renew and rebuild your skin.
To sum it up, microneedling produces the results it does because of collagen. Collagen is an abundant protein in your body. In fact, it’s the most abundant protein! There are many types of collagen, and they all help support structure in your tissues. When it comes to your skin, collagen is what gives it strength and elasticity.
Unfortunately, collagen production can decrease as you age, making it hard for your skin to repair itself. You might notice an increase in fine lines, scars, and blemishes. This is where microneedling comes into play. Microneedling treatments help your skin stay vibrant and healthy by increasing collagen.
Not only does microneedling boost collagen production via a minimally invasive procedure, but there’s also little-to-no chance of an allergic reaction (we don’t inject anything!). This is great news for anyone looking to revitalize their skin without synthetic ingredients.
What can microneedling do?
Now that we covered what microneedling does, here’s how this miracle treatment can work for you. Microneedling can:
Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Collagen gives structure to your skin, and as collagen levels decrease, you’re prone to fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling can help revitalize your skin and reduce fine lines, including crow’s feet around your eyes.
Shrink enlarged pores
Everyone has pores, but they appear large when clogged and stretched out. Microneedling doesn’t remove pores 一 you need pores 一 but helps release some clogged pores. Your pores appear smaller when they are free from dead skin and debris.
Improve the texture and tone of your skin
Microneedling can add firmness to your skin by restoring strength and elasticity. Not only does your skin feel silky smooth, but it also looks smoother. Many people report that their skin has a youthful glow after their treatment.
Reduce the appearance of acne scars
Acne scars can be annoying reminders of a previous acne breakout. Atrophic (indented) scars can form if your skin doesn’t heal properly or regenerate tissue appropriately. Fortunately, microneedling can help reduce the appearance of atrophic acne scars. Because microneedling encourages collagen production, your skin starts to regenerate and fill in the divots left behind by acne.
Enhance the effectiveness of skincare products
The perks of microneedling don’t stop at collagen production. Microneedling also makes your at-home skin routine more effective. Thanks to tiny puncture wounds, your skin creams or serums get absorbed more quickly, boosting the effectiveness of your products.
