Microneedling


 

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 is virtually painless and incredibly effective.

Reduces fine and deep wrinkles
The primary appeal of microneedling is its ability to stimulate 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.

Reverses sun damage and pigmentation
By stimulating collagen growth with microneedling, you can also reverse sun damage and discoloration, including the hyperpigmentation that comes with melasma. A 2015 study showed microneedling to be a promising treatment for the blotchy, brownish facial pigmentation that comes with this chronic condition.

Helps aging skin and can help reduce Acne Scars
Our Professional grade microneedling devices are effective and will treat deep acne scars that occur beneath the surface of the skin. In a 2009 study on the effects of microneedling, nearly 100 percent of acne-scarred participants reported a marked improvement in the visibility of their acne scars. In addition to microneedling's ability to smooth and correct damaged skin, it also has the added bonus of tightening loose skin, which makes it great for older men and women.

It also shrinks your pores and makes your skin products work better
It's a bit counter-intuitive, but microneedling doesn't actually enlarge pores as you might imagine piercing your skin hundreds of times would. Rather, one major benefit of using a dermaroller is that it helps pores appear much smaller. Microneedling stimulates collagen in and around your pores, which causes them to plump and appear shrunken, if not closed. Also, one of microneedling's additional appeals is that it improves product absorption tremendously.

It can be done all over your body
Finally, an awesome benefit of microneedling is that this treatment isn't exclusive to the face. It can be done on any area of skin that needs to be repaired—particularly areas that display stretch marks or acne scars, like the legs, chest, back, and butt. As few as four to six sessions could make a difference in these problem areas.
