5 Amazing Benefits of Microneedling

What does microneedling do for your face? Our Newton, MA-based team at Dr. Happe Medical Aesthetics recommends this skin rejuvenation treatment for many people who want to restore a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves creating small puncture wounds on the skin using very tiny needles. Each channel made in the skin during the treatment represents a point of healing, with benefits extending into the surrounding area as well.

Here are five major benefits of microneedling you should know.

1. It Stimulates Collagen Production

Microneedling triggers the skin’s natural healing process, which increases collagen and elastin production. Collagen is an essential protein that gives skin its structure and firmness, but as we age, collagen production naturally declines, leading to wrinkles and sagging skin. Microneedling helps to boost collagen production, which can improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

2. It Reduces Hyperpigmentation

Microneedling can be an effective treatment for hyperpigmentation, including melasma and age spots. By causing micro-injuries to the skin, microneedling seems to increase the rate of skin cell turnover, which can help to even out skin tone and reduce the appearance of dark spots as darker-pigmented areas slough off. It also allows topical products to more easily penetrate the skin so that vitamins C and A, as well as other inhibitors of melanocytes (cells that produce pigment), can more effectively do their job.

3. It Minimizes the Appearance of Scars

Microneedling can also be effective in reducing the appearance of scars, including acne scars and stretch marks. By creating micro-injuries in the skin, microneedling can trigger the skin’s natural healing process, leading to the production of new collagen, which can help to fill in scars and improve skin texture.

4. It Improves Skin Texture

Microneedling can help to improve skin texture by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, which can lead to firmer, smoother skin. This can also improve the appearance of large pores and reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles.

5. It Enhances Product Absorption

By creating tiny punctures in the skin, microneedling can enhance the absorption of topical products, including serums, moisturizers, and other skincare products. The micro-channels created by microneedling allow products to penetrate deeper into the skin, increasing their effectiveness.

Overall, microneedling can be an effective treatment for a variety of skin concerns and can help to improve skin texture, tone, and appearance.
