Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) involves using fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of skin.
Sound appealing? Not so much. But this minimally invasive treatment— whether it’s done in-office by a trained aesthetician, dermatologist, or plastic surgeon, or at home using a dermaroller (a small, handheld paint roller coated in tiny needles)—is virtually painless and incredibly effective.
The micro-injuries you create stimulates the body’s natural wound healing processes, resulting in cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production, therefore reversing as well as preventing signs of aging, (It works the same way lasers do, only you’re injuring the skin mechanically instead of using heat or light.)
Believe it or not, microneedling benefits caught the eye of skincare fanatics interested in anti- aging.One of the main microneedling benefits is its ability to stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin, which is the key to new, youthful-looking skin.
Some doctors would even go so far as to say that the procedure is the most powerful way to stop aging in its tracks and prevent new fine lines and wrinkles from forming. With its ability to trigger the generation of new skin cells, just a few sessions of microneedling will noticeably reduce fine lines, crow’s feet, and deep wrinkles on the forehead. This is one of the reasons microneedling is so effective because it’s able to utilize the body’s own natural healing mechanisms, so the results are very natural. Also because there’s minimal downtime with it.
