5 Benefits of Microneedling
for Face, Neck and Chest
First, What exactly is microneedling?
Microneedling has quickly become one of the most buzzed-about beauty procedures out there—and for good reason! It is also known as collagen induction therapy and involves puncturing the top layer of the skin with thin, tiny needles using a special instrument. As a wound forms and heals, it stimulates the skin’s collagen production. While the procedure sounds a bit intimidating, it’s actually very simple and minimally-invasive. Originally introduced for skin rejuvenation benefits, micro-needling has now evolved to address a wide range of skin concerns for the face, neck and chest. Thinking about giving it a try? Here are 5 benefits of microneedling and why it may be exactly what you are looking for!
1. Stimulate natural collagen production for vibrant, younger looking skin.
As we age, our skin loses some of its natural collagen, which can lead to loss of firmness, elasticity, and volume. With Microneedling, more of your own collagen is stimulated, thus leaving you with an overall softer, smoother skin texture. Who doesn’t want that!?
2. Reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
As your tiny wounds heal, your skin actually becomes stronger in the process. You’ll likely notice a significant decrease in fine lines and wrinkles, which is a huge reason why this treatment is so popular. Microneedling is a great option for people of all ages, since preventing is just as important as treating.
3. Reduce hyperpigmentation and dark spots.
If you’ve ever suffered from acne, you know how frustrating the dark spots that are sometimes left behind can be. Even without acne, hyperpigmentation can affect just about anyone. Microneedling can actually reduce the damage caused by hyperpigmentation, leading to a clearer, more even complexion
4. Reduce acne scarring and pock marks.
Post-acne marks, rough texture, deep scarring – it’s all too familiar. These things become more common as we age and can be exasperating to deal with. Collagen and elastin are the primary proteins responsible for the structure of the skin, and when the two are stimulated, you’re left with smoother, more vibrant skin!
5. Help minimize large pores and blackheads.
We all know how annoying blackheads are, and – let’s be real – those pore clearing strips don’t do a dang thing. When hair follicles on the face are clogged by excess oil, they oxidize, causing what we know as blackheads. If you experience an overabundance of blackheads, this can, unfortunately, lead to enlarged pores and fine lines. Microneedling essentially opens the pores, which allows blackheads to be released. With consistent treatments, you’ll notice less and less blackheads over time. Win!
