Microneedling may not immediately come to mind when you think about cosmetic surgeries or procedures. However, microneedling is certainly a procedure you should be considering.
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the puncturing of the top layers of skin with tiny, microneedles.
What does microneedling do?
Puncturing tiny holes into the top layer of skin causes the natural, bodily response of repairing the holes by with the creation of new collagen and elastin. Essentially, your body’s natural repair methods are engaged. These natural repairs have cosmetic benefits. Microneedling allows for cosmetic improvement through a natural and minimally invasive procedure.
What results can be attributed to microneedling?
The natural bodily repair response of increased collagen and elastin at the site of the microneedling can cause a number of desirable cosmetic results. Improved elasticity and firmness of the skin is one of the most common cosmetic results of microneedling. Acne scars, fine lines, sunspots, stretch marks, pore size, cellulite, and other types of scarring may be visibly reduced through the increased production of collagen and elastin caused by the microneedling process.
Who can benefit from microneedling?
Anyone can benefit from microneedling. As it is a minimally invasive procedure that stimulates the body’s natural repair process to create cosmetic benefits, it is a relatively safe cosmetic procedure. However, as with all procedures, it is essential to ensure that you work with a competent doctor and follow all doctor instructions.
