1. Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles
Microneedling combats the signs of aging by creating tiny punctures in the skin. These microinjuries stimulate a wound-healing effect that increases production of collagen, elastin, and blood vessels.
As a result, skin instantly feels softer and looks more radiant. Additionally, the growth of new collagen and elastin over the next several weeks to months plumps skin and smooth wrinkles and fine lines.
2. Improves acne scars
Microneedling is regarded by many aesthetic experts as one of the best and safest ways for all skin types to reduce acne scars.
Here’s how: As the body naturally repairs a pimple a process known as fibrosis occurs, which can cause a thickening of connective tissue. As a result, skin can be pulled downward and cause a depression.
Microneedling is able to break up all of this fibrosis under the skin and release the surface of the skin for an improved appearance of scars.
3. Treats Acne
In addition to scarring, microneedling is also able to treat acne papules and cysts. Researchers believe that microneedling helps acne by reducing sebum production and making skin less oily.
4. Exfoliates skin and improve tone and texture
For glowing skin before a big event, many patients and celebrities turn to microneedling to remove the outer layer of the skin, including dead skin cells, and uncover new, healthy skin.
As a result, the treatment improves tone and texture and produces a refreshed and more youthful appearance.
5. Reduces Hyperpigmentation
Many patients treat hyperpigmentation with skincare products like vitamin C serum, but only a small percentage of topicals are actually absorbed by the skin.
Fortunately, microneedling facilitates product penetration via the numerous entry points it makes in the skin.
These microchannels essentially allow vitamin c a clear pathway to act on excess melanin responsible for hyperpigmentation.
