Microneedling has been trending in cosmetic circles lately, and for good reason. It is a safe, minimally invasive procedure that treats a variety of skin concerns. Microneedling has grown in popularity in recent years, thanks to innovative devices like Dermapen. But what are the benefits of microneedling.
What is microneedling
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a skin rejuvenation treatment that improves the health and appearance of the skin.
Microneedling is performed using a pen shaped device that is fitted with tiny needles, which are used to create micro-injuries in the skin. The micro-injuries trigger the skin’s natural wound healing process. Microneedling is a gentle, virtually painless treatment that requires very little downtime.
What are the benefits of microneedling?
- Increases collagen and elastin
Microneedling increases the production of collagen and elastin, which both contribute to younger-looking skin. Collagen makes skin plumper, and this helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, acne scars, and stretch marks. Elastin boosts skin elasticity, making the skin tighter and more toned.
- Promotes new skin cells
Microneedling stimulates the growth of new skin cells that improve the overall tone and texture of the skin. The new skin cells restore the skin’s youthful glow and make it softer, smoother, and firmer.
- Improves the effectiveness of topical skin care products
After microneedling, topical skin care products such as gels, creams, moisturizers, and serums, are able to penetrate deeper into the skin. Consequently, they are absorbed more efficiently, and work more effectively.
