The 411 on Microneedling

Posted on April 10, 2017

With the current rise of K-beauty products, our society has suddenly placed an emphasis on healthy, glowing skin. While many people may find the idea of obtaining clear, radiant skin intimidating, it is actually easier than you might think. The aesthetic treatment known as microneedling is a popular option am among celebs like Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston to obtain the perfect complexion. For those who are interested in this minimally invasive treatment option, read on for all the details.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a treatment done using a special device, often called a pen, which stimulates the natural healing process using small needles. The needles create tiny holes in the skin, which causes the stimulation of collagen. Collagen lives in the skin, helping it to look healthy, radiant, and firm.  Microneedling can also help serums and products to better absorb, so the skin can reap the full benefits.

Microneedling is a great treatment option for patients of all ages and skin tones who wish to improve their complexion. Treatments can be customized to fit each individual’s skin goals, with lighter treatments resulting in a subtle enhancement, and deep treatments creating more drastic outcomes. This versatile treatment can address a variety of skin issues, including scars, large pores, and aging or dull skin.

What Can You Expect from Microneedling?

You may be wondering if microneedling hurts. While most patients would say that they have felt some discomfort during the treatment, a topical anesthetic can be applied to the treatment area beforehand to ensure patient comfort. To see best results, patients will need to undergo multiple treatment sessions, usually over the course of three to six months. Patients can expect to see clearer, firmer, and more radiant skin after their microneedling procedure.

If you have noticed that your skin is beginning to appear dull, microneedling may be just what you need! This treatment is a great option for patients who wish to rejuvenate their skin without significant downtime.
