If you into skin treatments, there’s no way that you haven’t come across microneedling yet. And let’s be honest at first you may cringe when you hear the word “needle”. It may even intimidate you. But thankfully microneedling is nothing you should be scared of as its a minimally-invasive procedure. But why is the treatment so popular? And most importantly who is microneedling recommended for?
What is microneedling?
Microneedling comes with a list of skin boosting benefits that go beyond your standard facials. Rather than enjoying a healthy glow for a few days the results from microneedling will last much longer.
Microneedling is a collagen induction therapy which is designed to promote skin rejuvenation. Tiny needles are used to puncture your skin to create small wounds on the top layers of your skin. Your body then react to this the same way as it would react to larger wounds and triggers a repair mechanism. During this your body more collagen and elastin in order to thicken the skin, improve the overall texture, reduce pores and heal scars.
Who is microneedling recommended for?
One of the greatest aspect of microneedling is that because it isn’t a heat therapy, it’s safe for all skin colours and skin types. You can’t say the same about many other treatments.
In terms of skin concerns microneedling is extremely effective to treat are the following;
- Skin Tightening
- Natural Collagen Induction
- Skin lifting and rejuvenation
- Reducing wrinkles and fine lines
- Reducing pigmentation and sun damage
- Improving Stretch Marks
- Reducing acne scars, surgical scars and wound healing
