How Does Microneedling Work?
During microneedling, your provider uses tiny sterilized needles to prick the skin. The procedure is also called collagen induction therapy because it stimulates the production of elastin and collagen. As the skin heals, the result is a younger complexion and supple skin.
If you don’t like needles, you don’t have to worry as you will not even notice they are there. The SkinPen device is simply rolled over your skin and you won’t feel the pricks. Your skin will be numbed to ensure your comfort.
You can expect the microneedling procedure to take only 20 to 60 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. Depending on your condition, it is usually recommended you do four to six treatments to see the best results.
Benefits of Microneedling
Clinical studies show that four treatments once per month for four months increases elastin and collagen by 400%. In addition, you can expect the following benefits:
- Reduces the appearance of large pores
- Treats alopecia (hair loss)
- Improves acne
- Fades dark patches and spots (hyperpigmentation)
- Decreases the appearance of scars
- Improves the appearance of stretch marks
- Treats sun-damaged skin
- Corrects wrinkles and fine lines
- Improves skin elasticity
As you can see, many people can benefit from microneedling treatments. In addition to all these benefits, it is also more affordable than laser treatments. It is also preferred for dark skin tones as it does not change pigmentation.
