Read on to find out more about microneedling and five important benefits it offers for your skin. 

Uses a natural process 

Microneedling involves the use of a handheld device that contains a roller fitted with very small needles. When the roller moves across the treatment area, it leaves tiny puncture holes in the epidermis, or top layer of your skin.  

Your body interprets these punctures as wounds. It reacts by signaling collagen, elastin, and other proteins to promote cell tissue growth and help repair the punctures with new skin. The new skin is naturally firm and healthy, which results in a younger-looking complexion. 

Microneedling delivers this rejuvenation without synthetic fillers. Instead, it takes advantage of your skin’s natural healing properties by purposely creating miniature wounds to generate the skin’s inherent response to heal itself.

Provides optimal PRP delivery

You can boost your microneedling results with the addition of platelet-rich plasma (PRP). The plasma in your blood carries healing proteins that encourage cell growth. When plasma is separated from blood, it can be used alone to support the healing process at the microneedling puncture sites.

If you choose to add PRP to your microneedling treatment, the PRP originates from your blood, so there’s no concern about safety or rejection. Before our treatment begins, a nurse draws blood from your arm and uses a centrifuge to isolate your PRP from the other blood components. After the microneedling process, your provider massages the PRP across your face and into the punctures, which provide optimal delivery systems for PRP penetration deep into your skin. 

PRP can help improve the healing process and encourage faster results. It also can reduce the duration of redness that can occur after microneedling. 

Rejuvenates aging skin

Aging skin can sag, wrinkle, and appear thin. Microneedling can help reverse the effects of aging by restoring the strength and elasticity of your skin. The newer skin appears naturally firmer and brighter because it hasn’t been subject to factors like aging and the sun. The result replaces the crepey skin with a plumper complexion that gives you a “fresh” and “glowing” look.

Diminishes scars and stretch marks

Microneedling can improve the appearance of scars and stretch marks. The new collagen that forms during your body’s healing reaction can help smooth out depressed acne scars. Collagen can also help diminish the signs of stretch marks, which appear as indented scars after your skin stretches too quickly. 

Improves skin discoloration 

Microneedling can help offset skin discoloration and pigment issues caused by melanin imbalance. The new layer of skin that results from collagen production doesn’t have spots and marks, so your complexion appears smooth and even again.

Because microneedling doesn’t damage the outer layer of skin, it can repair all skin tones, while some laser therapy isn’t recommended for darker skin.
