If you’re one of the many people looking for a way to combat signs of aging naturally and without major, costly surgeries…microneedling may be right for you.
Microneedling is an ideal treatment for anyone concerned about skin issues such as wrinkles, large pores, age spots, and even scars. It is a generally safe and natural approach to anti-aging with a variety of skin improving benefits.
Just like the name suggests, microneedling involves the use of specialized, tiny needles to create small pinpricks in the skin. This medical device punctures just deep enough into the skin’s surface to stimulate the cells to jump into repair-mode.
This repair process involves a cascade of healing helpers and ultimately results in:
- Increased collagen production
- Formation of new capillaries
- Improved cell regeneration
These effects result in reduced inflammation, increased skin elasticity, and an overall firmer, improved appearance of the skin. And, the benefits continue to last up to 16 weeks after each treatment.
Some people may be concerned about experiencing pain with this procedure. However, microneedling is actually a very gentle procedure resulting in minimal discomfort. Typically, a topical numbing cream will even be applied prior to the treatment to ensure optimal comfort.
The best part? There’s no downtime with this minimally invasive procedure, so you can resume normal activities right after the treatment.
