Microneedling: A Beauty Secret

Did you know that billions of dollars are invested in research and development every year to finding the ultimate facial rejuvenation treatment? Yet, only a few have succeeded in generating the promised results.

Microneedling is one of of those modalities and it is highly recommended by cosmetic doctors and their clients.

Taking care of your skin is something worth investing your time and money.  Imagine talking to someone who can’t stop themselves but to comment on your perfect complexion and glow. That would work wonders for anyone’s self-confidence.

Right?

Keeping up with the “effects of aging” can be daunting. Add to that the environmental factors, nutrition and stress that not only takes a toll on your health but also affects the skin.

Skin care treatments have been relevant since ancient times, and records are showing the extensive skin care procedures that were followed religiously by queens and kings alike.

People have been trying to devise ways to stop time in its tracks, or better yet reverse it. Moreover, other skin issues that are not age related such as burns or acne scarring have plagued people of all ages. Where some people are unaffected by a few acne-related scars, others may be under a heavier psychological burden to appear perfect.

While trying to find a remedy for the skin problems you might have come across a list of breakthroughs such as microcurrent and laser therapies, Botox, chemical peels, facials and more. They all work in different ways.

All of these treatments promise to renew your skin without surgical procedures and who doesn’t want that?

Microneedling, however, is a treatment that helps restore a supple complexion due to its ability to encourage the production of collagen. Extensive research supports the non-surgical treatment for rejuvenating the skin.

It helps reduce a wide range of skin imperfections such as scars, sun spots, wrinkles, enlarged pores and fine lines, resulting in an improved appearance of glowing, supple skin.

How Microneedling Works

Microneedling is collagen induction therapy which stimulates the skin’s rejuvenation process. It uses microneedles (hence the name) to puncture the surface of the skin and induce minuscule wounds.

Done correctly, it is a painless treatment. The best possible way to avoid any negative effects is to get it done at a professional’s office or clinic.

Why Microneedling

The success of microneedling can be attributed to the fact that it focuses on a few key features that make it a better experience.

  • Customization: It is performed with a variable depth setting to customize the treatment according to your skin’s needs
  • It is quick: Microneedling is a fairly painless in-office procedure and  only takes 15 to 30 minutes to perform
  • It is safe: Unlike some laser therapies, Microneedling is safe for all skin types and can be performed for a variety of skin issues

Microneedling is Effective

This procedure is effective because it manipulates the body’s natural wound healing process and concentrates it towards rejuvenating the specific area of skin where it is conducted. This procedure is virtually painless, and skin care experts swear by the results.

The procedure aims to increase elastin and collagen production while promoting healthy cell turnover. Researchers believe that is not just another fad in skin care; this procedure is here to stay.

Now that we have established the mechanism of this procedure, it is now time to explain why an appointment with Dr. Bent is what your skin needs.

Benefits Of Microneedling

1. Reduces Fine Lines And Wrinkles

Microneedling reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on a deeper level. Some skin care specialists have labeled it the most powerful anti-aging treatment. This can be attributed to the fact that it uses the natural physics of the body to generate new cells and produce collagen and elastin. The downtime is short, and even one few sessions may show a visible difference.

2. Scar Repair

Although some scars will never disappear completely, microneedling can considerably reduce its appearance. It is the most effective treatment for people who have been suffering from acne scarring, stretch marks or burn marks on any part of the body. Microneedling present fewer side effects and is more tolerable compared to laser treatments for scar reduction.

3. Reverses Pigmentation And Sun Damage

Even if you are not suffering from severe acne scarring, you are sure to experience the appearance of sun spots and pigmentation. Micro-needling is one of the most effective procedures to stimulate the natural collagen producing properties of the skin. Collagen and elastin play a vital role in cell turnover and reduction of pigmentation. Clients who have undergone microneedling show that even one session with a professional can make your skin feel rejuvenated.

4. Anti-Aging

Recent research published in the International Journal of Dermatology stated that microneedling is the most effective procedure for skin rejuvenation, skin tightening, and scar remodeling. The body’s natural collagen production reduces aging, microneedling stimulates this process and is perfect for male and female skin alike. Microneedling can also reduce the appearance of loose skin without any external chemicals being injected into your skin. It just gives your skins natural procedures a gentle boost, and the results are astounding.

5. Shrink Pores

Pores are one of the most common problems that young and old are susceptible to. Despite actually puncturing the surface of your skin, microneedling shrinks the pores, visibly. This is achieved by the stimulation of collagen and elastin around the pores which plump up the skin and reduce the appearance of the pores.
