Most major cosmetic products and treatments make an initial splash in the news when they hit the market. But very few have sustained the buzz and earned rave results quite like microneedling. At SILK A Medical Spa, the requests for microneedling have skyrocketed, and our team is thrilled with the results we have seen.
At our practice and other practices around the country, microneedling was one of the most popular treatments we performed in 2019. Take a moment to learn why.
Targets Many Areas and Multiple Imperfections
Microneedling uses a pen-like device containing tiny needles to create miniscule wounds in the skin. This triggers the body’s wound response and the production of new collagen and elastin. As we age, our natural collagen and elastin production starts to decrease, so replenishing our reserves of these key proteins helps skin look softer, suppler and more youthful.
One of the best benefits of microneedling is that it can treat many different kinds of skin conditions, including wrinkles, fine lines, acne scarring, stretch marks and sun damage.
Also, it can be used on many areas of the face and body — both small and large.
Safe for All Skin Colors and Types
Another reason why microneedling is so popular is that it works well on all skin colors and types. Other skin rejuvenation treatments (such as laser resurfacing) do not work well on certain skin types like tan or dark skin tones and can produce hyperpigmentation or patches of uneven pigment.
Helps Skin Care Products Penetrate Deeper
By creating tiny pricks in the surface of the skin, microneedling helps skin care products penetrate more deeply into the skin. The skin is better able to soak up serums, creams and gels thanks to microneedling.
The recovery from microneedling is very quick compared to other treatments. After a microneedling session, the skin might be slightly red or irritated (similar to getting a sunburn), but there is virtually no downtime.
