You may have heard a lot about microneedling in the cosmetic industry. That’s because it’s one of the most in-demand skincare treatments available – and for good reason! Microneedling is an extremely versatile and effective way to transform your skin and address a variety of concerns. If you’re looking for a great solution to your toughest skin concerns, then microneedling may be for you. Here’s what to know about it and how your skin can benefit.
MICRONEEDLING FOR ACNE SCARS
Acne scars can come in many different forms, including pigmented or textured. Microneedling has been shown to be one of the most effective ways to get rid of acne scarring, a famously difficult skin concern. Microneedling can break down scar tissue in the skin while also promoting the growth of new collagen. With a package of treatments, microneedling can achieve drastic improvement in your skin’s smoothness and clarity.
MICRONEEDLING FOR HAIR LOSS
Paired with PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, microneedling can be an effective way to stimulate the growth of new hair and reinvigorate hair follicles. PRP works by delivering a concentrated dose of your body’s own growth factors that naturally exist in your blood. Microneedling helps target the PRP to the deeper layers of the skin to jumpstart your hair growth mechanisms and reduce hair loss.
MICRONEEDLING FOR STRETCH MARKS
Stretch marks can be notoriously difficult to get rid of, but microneedling has shown promise as a way to break up scar tissue in the deep layers of the skin and reduce their appearance. Stretch marks are a natural byproduct of changes in body size, whether because of weight fluctuation or pregnancy. There are many different products available on the market that promise to get rid of stretch marks with few results. This makes microneedling an exciting new option.
MICRONEEDLING FOR WRINKLES
As you age, your body begins to taper off its production of collagen as early as your 30s. Without new collagen production, the skin begins to sag and lose supportive volume. The result is wrinkles and folds in areas like the midface. One of the most effective ways to reverse this volume loss is by stimulating new collagen production through microneedling. With a complete package of treatments and regular maintenance treatments, you can rewind the clock and restore your body’s collagen production for a more youthful look.
MICRONEEDLING FOR SKIN TONE
In the endless search for the best way to get glowing skin, microneedling may be your solution. By boosting your skin’s rate of collagen production, the result is a glowing complexion with a reduction in blemishes, pigmentation, and texture. In fact, microneedling can be one of the best ways to maintain a radiant glow for the long term when you undergo regular treatments. Consider adding microneedling to your routine if you’re looking for a “glowing from within” look.
