One of the fastest growing beauty trends at the moment is microneedling and it is producing amazing results over a very short period of time. It is a method that has been proven to boost the collagen production levels in the skin and help fight skin imperfections and inconsistencies. During this process needles are used to lightly puncture the skin to help control the injured area. Our clients have been more than happy with the results of their microneedling sessions and we thought we would tell you what it could do for your skin so that you can consider it, too.
Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
The number one reason why people come to us for microneedling is to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles. Over time our skin takes strain against life and age and there comes a point where anti-aging creams are just not as intensive enough for us. The boost in elastin and collagen produced by microneedling will help to reduce the appearance of these fine lines and wrinkles, leaving your skin feeling smooth and silky with a youthful glow.
Hyperpigmentation is a skin disorder that generally attacks people with a darker complexion. It is caused by an unusual production of melanin which can make the skin look harsh and unappealing. People who have had acne or strenuous sun exposure are also more prone to hyperpigmentation and for this reason microneedling is the perfect solution. During the process microneedling helps to shed the top layer of the skin that has turned out to be problematic and this will cause the skin to produce a normal amount of melanin. It is incredibly safe to use and definitely beats other, harsher treatments like laser and chemical peel.
Defeats age spots
Along with fine lines and wrinkles comes the inevitable appearance of age spots. These spots cause imperfections and uneven skin tone, especially in the face which leaves a lot of women with very low self-confidence levels. Microneedling treats these age spots much in the same way as it treats hyperpigmentation – by removing the top layer of your skin to improve the appearance thereof. It also works along with your topical creams in order to increase the effectiveness of the product so that it further increases elastin and collagen.
Treatment of Rosacea
Another skin condition that can be treated with microneedling is rosacea. This skin condition leads to redness in the face due to the lack of healthy collagen production. Because microneedling increases the collagen in your skin, it can significantly improve and cure rosacea within just a few weeks. For the best results you should undergo microneedling whilst using a topical cream.
Prevention of Hair Loss
As we get older we tend to lose some of the hairs on our heads and this is something many people want to avoid. Microneedling can decrease hair loss by releasing a special growth factor that targets the actual hair follicle. This then helps the body to produce longer and thicker hair.
