What is Microneedling?

“Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) involves using fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds to the surface of the skin. This minimally invasive treatment is taking the aesthetics industry by storm. When performed by a trained professional, it can correct fine lines, acne scars, and even reverse the signs of aging. It works by using micro-injuries to stimulate the body’s natural wound healing processes, resulting in quicker cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production. This is a huge discovery as our body’s natural collagen supply stops production at age 21.”

So why should you care? Here are three reasons why this treatment might be for you:

1. It’s minimally invasive

Topical numbing cream will be applied before your treatment so the treatment is virtually painless. There is little downtime with most people returning to their daily activities immediately after treatment.

2. It gives you REAL results

By stimulating collagen growth with microneedling, you can also reverse sun damage and discoloration, including the hyperpigmentation that comes with melasma. In addition to treating acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, and pore size.

3. Microneedling is very cost effective

Microneedling can cost a quarter of the price of getting multiple laser treatments, with similar efficacy.

Just like with any procedure, do your research to find a licensed practitioner, and ask your fair share of questions. Many practices do not numb or have an aesthetician completing the services.
