Undoubtedly microneedling is now one of the most popular aesthetic procedures. But what does microneedling do exactly? And who can benefit from the treatment? Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that is used to boost collagen , reduce the appearance of scars and encourage hair growth.
What does microneedling do?
Microneedling is a procedure that causes small needles to prick the skin. These puncture the skin and cause physical trauma. Trauma prompts the deeper layers of your skin to heal and rebuild themselves. Furthermore it increases collagen production. But why is that essential to your skin?
Collagen is a very important protein that will maintain your skin’s firmness, youthfulness and smooth texture. With ageing the amount of collagen in your skin reduces. But of course there are other factors that’ll also result in loss of collagen; such as acne, scarring and stretch marks. As a result your skin may need a little help stimulating the production of new collagen. And this is where microneedling comes in to play.
Who can benefit from microneedling?
Microneedling will help to address a wide range of skin concerns such as;
- wrinkles and fine lines
- pigmentation and discolouration
- stretch marks
- hair loss/alopecia
