Microneedling – the secret of perfect skin

Although the word “needle” may sound a little frightening when we are talking about beauty treatment, we are sure you will love the end result. Microneedling is a popular and proven method for a more youthful and glowing appearance. Moreover, it is a safe and efficient way to return the glow of your skin.

What is Microneedling?

In its basics, microneedling is a procedure that prompts the skin, so it can heal itself. Because of that, the skin starts to create bigger amounts of collagen which leads to a smoother skin tissue, as well as firm and tone skin.

As you may guess from the name of the treatment, it uses a tool with tiny needles on the end (between 0,5 and 2.5 mm), allowing a deep penetration of the skin. We can also say microneedling is a process of making very precise injuries to the skin. The body reacts as always – it moves to heal itself, stimulating collagen and elastin.

Is it just a trend?

Microneedling is becoming more popular each day, but it is definitely not a new trend. While we can find many celebrities raving about the benefits of this treatment, we must say that it has been around for years. Actually, it didn’t start as a beauty treatment. At first, microneedling was used as a medical treatment for reducing surgery scars.

Well, today we can see many Hollywood stars turning to this procedure to help them keep their youthful appearance.

Microneedling benefits

It may sound hard to believe that purposely injuring your skin can have so many benefits. Well, here are 9 main reasons why this treatment is so beneficial for your skin.

1. Collagen production

We already mentioned that microneedling stimulates collagen production, but let’s see why that is so important.

Collagen is the structural protein that keeps the skin strong and resilient. As we age, the production of that protein decreases, leading to the development of lines and wrinkles.

Basically, collagen is crucial for the youthful appearance of the skin, and that is what makes microneedling such a great treatment.

2. Smoother skin

By increasing the production of collagen, microneedling restores the strength of the skin, as well as its elasticity. The wound-healing mechanism stimulates the body to produce new skin cells and as a result lines and wrinkles become smoother and less visible.

3. Skin tone

Microneedling is a great treatment for improving your skin tone. It helps break up your hyperpigmented skin, while improving cell turnover, giving you a more even complexion.

4. Scars treatment

Another great benefit of microneedling is scars treatment. Acne scars are commonly seen skin condition, long after the acne is gone. They can have an effect on your self-esteem and self-confidence. Fortunately, there is a solution to that problem – Microneedling. The stimulation of the repair process allows the skin to fill in the acne scars, which improves the texture and the overall look of the skin.

Actually, microneedling is great not only for acne scars, but also for trauma or surgery scars, as well as stretch marks.

5, Sun damage

Sun can be really damaging for the skin, if we don’t take enough care. Microneedling is an effective treatment for reducing hyperpigmentation and age spots, caused by sun damage.

6. Rosacea reduction

Rosacea is another skin condition that can be treated with microneedling. The ruddiness of the skin can be reduced with the stimulation of collagen. As a result, the skin will look less inflamed and irritated.

7. Improves the effectiveness of other products

Right after a microneedling treatment is a great time to apply anti-aging treatments, moisturizers or other treatments that can boost the health of your skin. The micro-holes are able to receive creams and serum, delivering them much deeper into your dermis. Of course, our advice is to ask your dermatologist for the best post-microneedling treatment.

8. Fewer side effects

We can compare the effect of microneedling with the effect of laser and chemical peel treatment, but without the downtime. Actually, you will be able to enjoy a glowing complexion after 24 to 72 hours.

9. Brings back the natural beauty of your skin

That, we can say, is the greatest benefit of the microneedling skin treatment. It uses the body’s natural processes to make your skin stronger and healthier. Furthermore, it is absolutely safe, as it doesn’t include injections, synthetic fillers or chemicals.

Who is microneedling suitable for?

Basically anyone can see benefits from microneedling. The treatment is suitable for any skin type or color, as well as for sensitive skin.

Of course, there are given skin conditions that do not allow such treatments. That is why we suggest you always consult with a specialist, who can give you the best advice.

The results

We already mentioned the greatest benefits of microneedling treatment. Truth is, some of them will be visible almost immediately, for example skin tightening. For others, you will have to wait around four to six weeks. And while this seems like too much time, it is definitely worth the wait. Actually, this is the time the body needs to ramp up collagen production, so you can get the youthful and healthy appearance of your skin.

Of course anyone would love an instant result, but you must know that good things come slowly, and so do the benefits of microneedling. Even the fact that you have to wait offer some important advantages:

First, the skin will be entirely natural. It takes time for the body to do all the work after the treatment, but it is a great thing that the process does not involve chemicals, incisions or anything unnatural.

Another great thing is that changes don’t happen overnight. Instead, your skin becomes fresher and younger gradually and naturally.

The important thing to say here is that for long-term results, you must have long-term treatment. The effects of microneedling are not permanent, so you have to continue taking treatments in order to maintain the effect.
