How does microneedling improve skin?

There’s been a lot of talk about microneedling in recent years,because of the new and advanced microneedling devices now on the market. Microneedling is a very effective solution for skin irregularities such as scars and wrinkles, but how does it work to improve the skin.

Microneedling – what is it?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that uses a device fitted with small, shallow needles to create microscopic holes in the skin. A single treatment takes about 30 minutes, and 3-6 sessions are normally required to achieve the best results.Microneedling is an effective treatment for the face and body.

How does microneedling improve the skin?
Modern microneedling tools are pen-shaped hand-held devices with tiny needles that work by creating hundreds of micro-injuries in the top layer of the skin.

When these needles pierce the skin, they trigger the release of the body’s own growth factors, and this accelerates cell turnover. Microneedlingalso stimulates collagen production. The regenerated skin cells and new collagen help to improve the tone and texture of the skin.

The increased collagen reduces skin discolorations, giving it a clearer, more youthful appearance. In addition, the new skin cells minimizeskinimperfections such as scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. Microneedling is therefore an incredibly effective treatment for individuals looking to reduce signs of aging.

Microneedling also enhances the penetration of topical skin care products, so that they work more effectively.
