From acne scars to fine lines & wrinkles, Microneedling is the multi-purpose treatment that can totally transform your skin so you can reach your clearest and brightest complexion yet. But what is Microneedling? What are the benefits of Microneedling? And does Microneedling help with acne scars? We’re covering on all of it below!
WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
Microneedling is a multi-purpose treatment that creates microscopic injuries in the skin to treat acne scars, stretch marks, minimizes large pores, boost collagen, reduces wrinkles & fine line, and improves sun damage. Yes, it really can do all those things! Microneedling is the all in one treatment with little to no downtime that’s great for all ages and skin types.
DOES MICRONEEDLING HELP ACNE & ACNE SCARS?
Microneedling is known for reducing acne scars. It penetrates the skin creating microscopic injuries which increases collagen production and heals micro-wounds (aka acne scars). See below for microneedling before and after photos!
CAN MICRONEEDLING TREAT ENLARGED PORES?
Due to the natural aging process, our skin begins to lose collagen which is the secret to youthful looking skin. While the actual size of your pores cannot be changed, there are, however, ways to firm up the skin and make them appear smoother and tighter. For instance, if pores aren’t kept clean they can stretch due to dirt, oil, and debris getting trapped inside. Microneedling will exfoliate the skin and this in turn will result in the natural production of collagen and clean skin. Microneedling tightens, plumps, and brightens up the skin.
CAN MICRONEEDLING TIGHTEN THE SKIN?
Microneedling stimulates collagen and elastin – two natural proteins found in the body and are key to a youthful appearance. The process of stimulating collagen with a Microneedling treatment will result in smoother, tighter skin which will in turn improve fine lines and wrinkles.
CAN MICRONEEDLING BRIGHTEN THE SKIN?
Did you know Microneedling can brighten up and even out the skin? The microscopic injuries from the skin pen can help reduce an uneven skin tone by breaking up the pigment created below the skin’s surface. As the skin heals, collagen repairs the skin and you’re left with your best complexion yet.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU DO MICRONEEDLING?
It’s recommended that you get Microneedling once a month or every 4 to 6 weeks. Did you know that after the age of 25 your body no longer produces collagen? Collagen is a key factor that keeps your skin looking youthful and without it the skin will begin to age. By stimulating collagen consistently through a recommended treatment plan we can continue to improve the skin and slow down the aging process. Below is the recommended of treatments you should be considering based on your age.
- 20-30’s = 2- 3 treatments per year
- 30- 40’s = 3-4 treatments per year
- 40-60’s = 4-6 treatments per year
WHAT IS PRP MICRONEEDLING?
Microneedling and PRP is the duo of our dreams! If you’re struggling with acne scars, texture, fine lines and wrinkles this is the treatment for you. These two treatments work to promote your production of collagen which will result in healing a variety of other skin concerns as well. PRP, also known as Platelet Rich Plasma, can take your results to the next level by targeting years of damage.
IS MICRONEEDLING PAINFUL?
Microneedling is a breeze and we don’t just say that! This treatment can be done in 30 minutes depending on the area being treated. We also will give you an option to numb the area that is being treated to lessen any discomfort. You may feel slight discomfort once you’re home and the numbing cream wears off, but this is normal and will subside!
