What Issues Can You Treat With Microneedling?
Microneedling is growing in popularity because it is an effective and natural way to target and reverse the signs of aging and other skin imperfections. Patients are learning after just one treatment that they don’t need to schedule anything invasive to achieve dramatic results.
When you choose a treatment that harvests the power in your body to heal the skin and restore your youth from the inside out, you’ll be amazed not only at how powerful your body really is but that the keys to the fountain of youth may be within you.
As you age, your skin produces less collagen and elastin. Both of these proteins help keep the skin youthful, but you can begin to experience elasticity loss when your body produces less. If your skin doesn’t look or feel as tight and toned as it used to, this treatment can help restore elasticity which will help resolve other issues, including some of the signs of aging.
When collagen and elastin production increases, your skin will take on a more youthful appearance. Areas defined by loose skin will look and feel tighter within weeks of beginning treatment.
Acne scars affect your skin texture. Whether you have a few or several, you are probably well aware of just how difficult they are to treat and nearly impossible to eliminate with products. Topical solutions can’t combat acne scars because their root cause leads back to collagen. By increasing collagen production below your acne scars, that new collagen will lift the skin tissue within that scar to raise it higher so that it better blends with the rest of your skin.
As a result, you’ll see a reduced appearance of acne scars in the weeks following your treatment. Repeat sessions will help continuously improve those acne scars and may even eliminate some of them altogether.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Fine lines and wrinkles that form on the lower half of the face result from volume loss. Volume loss occurs when your body produces less collagen. Collagen plumps the skin and keeps it firm and lifted. As your body produces less, facial folds, lines, and wrinkles may begin to form. This treatment can help combat fine lines and wrinkles by naturally restoring your body’s collagen levels.
As collagen grows in the deeper layers of the skin, your skin will get thicker and firmer, and lines and wrinkles will begin to fade. This treatment may become one of the tools that helps you combat aging long-term.
Dull Skin Tone
Poor blood circulation and a slow cellular turnover rate both contribute to a dull skin tone. If your skin doesn’t look as bright as it used to, this treatment will help increase blood flow to your face to help brighten and perfect your complexion. There’s something about a natural glow that can’t be replicated with makeup. Once you experience it for yourself, you will understand why so many patients love this treatment.
It really does help you radiate with the glow and vibrancy and youth in a way that your makeup just can’t. Plus, it won’t wash off at night. With repeated treatments, you can maintain that youthful glow long-term.
Uneven Skin Texture
Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy. It can help improve skin texture by making it appear more uniform. Uniform skin texture helps you look more youthful and can help you feel better about your complexion. Tighter and firmer skin are some of the main characteristics of youthful skin, and you will see these characteristics begin to redefine your skin post-treatment.
As you age, your face loses volume, a condition that experts have called age-related, mid-facial volume loss. Volume loss is normal, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with it. As the body produces less collagen each year after 30, hollow areas may begin to form. Some patients like to use dermal fillers to restore instant volume to their face, and while these are effective, some want to take a natural route or combine fillers with microneedling to get double the effect.
This treatment alone can help restore volume to your face by increasing your body’s collagen levels. It can help target those hollow areas below the eyes that make you look like you have dark circles and areas like the temples and the cheeks. It can also help restore volume to the lips and almost mimic that lip filler effect by increasing collagen growth to give you fuller lips naturally.
Many factors contribute to large pore size, including genetics, lifestyle, hormones, and sun exposure. If you suffer from oily skin, it’s easier for your pores to become clogged with dirt, oil, and debris, which will make them appear even larger.
By increasing collagen production, microneedling can help your skin become tighter and firmer, which will help reduce the appearance of your pore size. When your skin gets tighter and firmer and your pores become smaller, you may experience fewer breakouts, which will especially help those with acne-prone skin.
Stretch marks can result from pregnancy, significant weight gain or loss, genetics, and growth spurts. A stretch mark is the body’s response to the skin stretching or shrinking too quickly. The body responds to this sudden change in the skin by producing collagen and elastin, but as the skin stretches, collagen and elastin are ruptured, and a stretch mark forms.
Microneedling can help treat stretch marks by producing new collagen in the area and remodeling existing collagen and elastin to create a more uniform skin texture.
Rosacea cannot be eliminated altogether, but it can be improved. Microneedling treatments can help strengthen the capillaries beneath the skin to clear the area and reduce redness. Collagen will add density and strength to the skin tissue to help reduce the appearance of rosacea and help you live with clearer, more even skin.
Hyperpigmentation appears in different forms, but it’s a very difficult skin condition to treat regardless of how it shows up on your skin. Melasma, pregnancy mask, brown spots, and age spots all qualify as forms of hyperpigmentation. If you’ve tried different techniques and products in an attempt to treat your hyperpigmentation but have been unsuccessful, this treatment can finally do what you’ve been unable to do at home.
How Does the Treatment Process Work?
Once we confirm that collagen induction therapy is right for you, we can schedule your treatment. When you come in, we will cleanse your skin to prepare it for the session. Then, we will run the dermaroller over your treatment area.
Immediately following the treatment, your skin will feel tighter, and you will begin to notice the benefits of increased collagen and elastin production as soon as two to three days post-treatment. Results vary based on the patient but know that you will experience some dramatic results when you schedule this treatment.
Is It Right for Me?
Whether you currently use cosmetic injectables and are looking for a way to improve your skin, or you’re not ready to enter into that world but want to treat different signs of aging and other skin conditions, microneedling is the perfect skin rejuvenating treatment. It can take your skin to the next level and help it become healthier and more youthful.
