Continue reading to learn all about microneedling and if it’s right for you.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a nonsurgical treatment designed to improve skin tone and texture and correct a variety of skin concerns.
It’s safe for all skin types and an excellent option for patients who want to rejuvenate their appearance without lasers or surgery.
How Does Microneedling Work?
During a microneedling procedure, thin, surgical-grade needles make tiny punctures in the skin. These microscopic injuries initiate an inflammatory response that triggers the body’s natural healing mechanisms.
As a result, the body seeks to repair itself and generates new collagen and elastin.
This ultimately leads to intense tissue remodeling and a clearer, brighter, and more youthful complexion.
What Are the Benefits of Microneedling?
Not only is microneedling nonsurgical, it’s also quick, convenient, and doesn’t require any downtime. Best of all, the treatment can address virtually any skincare issue including:
Wrinkles, scarring, acne, hair loss, skin discoloration, stretch marks, rosacea, roughness, dullness, and skin laxity.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Women and men considering microneedling can rest assured that it’s a very safe treatment, with minimal risks. Often times, the most common side effect is mild and temporary skin irritation.
Other possible side effects can include swelling, discomfort at the site, redness, bruising, dryness, and flaking of the skin.
These issues are usually self-limiting and resolve on their own in a matter of a few days.
