Five Things You Didn't Know About Microneedling

microneedlingIt’s no secret that as we age, we lose collagen and elasticity in our skin which is what gives our skin strength, and when it begins to disappear, wrinkles begin to appear. We want to introduce you to microneedling in Delray Beach. Think facial rejuvenation and beyond.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure. This method introduces a controlled wound into the skin triggering a release of natural growth factors, new collagen, and elastin. This process causes much less damage to the epidermis than dermal rolling or lasers and other abrasive treatments, which helps to protect the new skin cell growth providing for quicker healing, higher success rates, and longer lasting results.

Benefits of Microneedling

There are many benefits of collagen induction therapy, including reducing the appearance of wrinkles and making your fine lines less noticeable.  It also helps hydrate the skin and makes it firmer, improving your skin’s texture. But there are some more plusses that you may not be aware of, that is, until now.

#1: Targets Scars

Collagen therapy is a great treatment for scars, including acne scars. Studies show that collagen induction therapy is effective in treating these scars. It also works well for treating surgery scars.

#2: Targets Pores & Blackheads

Many people have blackheads or enlarged pores on the face. Those pores can become clogged with dirt and sebum. Did you know that collagen induction therapy will make your pores smaller? Collagen induction therapy actually minimizes pore size and is a great treatment for blackheads, leaving you smoother skin.

#3 Targets Pigmentation

Many of us have experienced sun damage which can lead to sunspots. Collagen therapy can help reverse sun damage, as well as targeting age spots, dark spots, brown spots, and other pigmentation issues.

#4 Targets Stretch Marks

Did you know that it also addresses stretch marks? Whether you've developed stretch marks after giving birth or from weight issues, microneedling can minimize the appearance of those unwanted stretch marks.  

#5 Enhances Product Absorption

Have you ever noticed that after putting on a facial creamer, it seems to just sit there on top of your skin?  Collagen therapy can help enhance the absorption of your skin care products.

Number of Treatments and Results

As you can see, microneedling addresses many different skin concerns. The length of time in which you can expect to see results, along with the number of treatments you will need, depends on the skin issue being targeted, and the severity of your skin condition. We can discuss this in further detail when you come in for your consultation.
