When it comes to non-surgical treatments to reverse facial aging, every patient wants the most bang for their buck. In other words, which minimally-invasive treatment can make the biggest improvements with the least amount of discomfort and time? Microneedling continues to top the list.
While microneedling is not a new facial rejuvenation procedure, it has advanced drastically over the years to improve patient comfort as well as overall results. Once called “dermarolling,” microneedling in a professional setting now utilizes a handheld pen device that creates vertical pricks in the skin using tiny needles. By purposely yet painlessly damaging the skin’s structure, the body responds by healing these tiny injuries and producing new collagen, elastin and other important elements for a more glowing complexion.
There are three main reasons why patients want microneedling, as this is a simple and non-surgical treatment that can address the following:
- #1 Scars
- Whether it is stretch marks, surgical scars or scars from injuries, microneedling has proven to help lighten these blemishes and improve their overall appearance. If your scar has plateaued in its fading and shrinking, microneedling can help.
- #2 Pigmentation
- Pigmentation refers to unsightly discoloration across your complexion. This can develop after years of acne and/or sun exposure. Microneedling is an easy way to reverse areas of pigmentation and boost the tone and texture of your skin with your body’s own natural healing process.
- #3 Aging Skin
- Facial aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, is the leading reason why patients seek microneedling. By triggering more collagen and elastin in the skin, the skin can become tighter, brighter and more youthful. Wrinkles and deep lines are often drastically softened after a microneedling treatment.
