Microneedling gives your skin a beautiful glow after just one treatment and continues to boost the appearance of your complexion for months afterward. The benefits of microneedling are many. Here are 10 of the most notable.
1. REDUCES THE APPEARANCE OF LINES AND WRINKLES
No one wants to look older than they are. But premature ageing that presents as fine lines and wrinkles does just that. The tiny injuries from microneedling boosts collagen and elastin production to fight lines and wrinkles.
Collagen and elastin are fibres in your skin that add structure and strength, giving a youthful appearance. The wound healing response also stimulate your body to produce new skin cells, making fine lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles less noticeable.
2. SCAR TREATMENT
Your scars can be can be significantly reduced with targeted applications of microneedling. Because of the improved natural healing response and mechanical breakdown of scars, microneedling is very effective at remodelling scar tissue.
3. SUN DAMAGE
Microneedling is effective in reducing the appearance of UV damage, particularly hyper-pigmentation and age spots. If you have an uneven complexion, microneedling has the ability to normalise pigment cells, stimulate new collagen, rejuvenate and even out your skin tone.
Ageing doesn’t just show up as wrinkles and discoloration. As you get older, your skin loses its elasticity, so it appears lax. Ageing skin may also look dull and lack a lustrous glow. Microneedling can change this. The buildup of collagen that occurs in response to the tiny wounds can improve skin structure to fight sagging. Plus, just shortly following a session, you experience a radiant, fresh glow.
5. SHRINKS PORES
Despite the fact that microneedling involves pricking tiny holes in your skin, it doesn’t increase the size of your pores. In fact, it helps your pores appear much smaller. When the collagen around your pores is stimulated, the area around each pore plumps, making the pore itself almost disappear and your skin appear smoother.
6. IMPROVES THE EFFECTIVENESS OF TOPICAL PRODUCTS
Post microneedling is the prime time to apply topical serums with anti-ageing ingredients that boost skin health and appearance. The micro channels absorb serums, more effectively and deliver them deeper into your skin than when applied regularly. But work serums in quickly as those tiny micro channels are open for 10-15 minutes.
7. FIGHTS STRETCH MARKS
Microneedling works just about anywhere on your body. It can be effective in reducing the appearance of stretch marks that show up after periods of rapid growth, such as pregnancy or weight gain.
8. ROSACEA REDUCTION
The ruddiness and skin thickening of rosacea can be addressed with microneedling. If you suffer from this skin condition, you experience a hastened breakdown of collagen. Microneedling stimulates the growth of collagen to offset and replace this breakdown, so your skin looks less inflamed and irritated.
If you suffer from hair loss or thinning hair microneedling can promote thicker hair and new growth. By stimulating blood flow to the scalp area it increases the availability of nutrients and increases effectiveness of topical hair growth medications to be absorbed better.
10. FEWER SIDE EFFECTS THAN LASER OR INTENSIVE PEELS
Microneedling’s effects are comparable to laser and chemical peel treatments but without the long downtime. You can enjoy a glowing complexion 12-24 hours after microneedling, but with laser resurfacing, your recovery may take three to 10 days and 7-14 days to recover after a medium or intensive peel.
