What Is Microneedling?
As its name suggests, microneedling uses tiny needles applied to the skin. It is used directly on the areas of your body and face where you want to see improvement. Unlike with some other cosmetic procedures, the needles do not deliver any added products. Instead, they work to stimulate your body to heal itself naturally.
How Does It Work?
As the needles penetrate the surface of your skin, they stimulate several processes. Its primary effective mechanism is to stimulate collagen production, which is why it is known as a form of collagen induction therapy. Collagen is a critical compound that is responsible for much of the volume, elasticity, and youthfulness of your skin.
An added benefit many people experience with the treatment is increased circulation in the treatment area. As the body increases blood flow to the damaged tissue, it helps to kick start healing and tissue repair.
Why Consider Microneedling?
While deciding on the right treatment options for you is ultimately up to you and our professional, there are some common reasons people choose to have this treatment performed. It is an excellent option for reducing the appearance of scars and stretch marks. As the punctures stimulate collagen production, the affected tissue is replaced with new, healthy skin.
In the same way, it can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. These signs of aging are often caused by reduced collagen production that happens naturally as you grow older. If you are experiencing hyperpigmentation from age spots,microneedling could help you regain a more uniform skin tone. Keep in mind that results vary from patient to patient, and a series of treatment sessions may be required to achieve the desired results.
If you are using topical beauty treatments, you may notice increased results with them after your treatment sessions. The tiny punctures made in your skin allow it to better absorb creams, lotions, and their active ingredients.

However, there are some conditions and medications that would prevent you from having this treatment. That’s one of the reasons why an initial consultation is so important.
