As one of the hottest skin care trends, Microneedling, otherwise known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that stimulates the body’s natural healing capabilities. In essence, hundreds of microscopic perforations are created on the superficial layer of the skin, initiating cell turnover and boosting collagen and elastin production. While the thought of being poked or pricked may sound frightening, there’s no need to worry—Microneedling is virtually painless, particularly when performed by an elite, board certified plastic surgeon or trained medical aesthetician. Thus, with extraordinary results and little to no downtime, it’s no wonder that Vogue is calling it the next big thing in anti-aging.
While Microneedling is incredibly effective in reducing fine lines and wrinkles, it also provides a preventative component. For instance, as new skin cells are generated, a patient’s innate healing mechanisms are set into motion, smoothing fine lines, crow’s feet and even deeper wrinkles along the forehead. What’s more is that for individuals with noticeable scarring, Microneedling treatments dramatically improve the appearance and texture of skin, with less side effects and downtime when compared to laser therapy. In turn, discoloration from sun damage and/or pigmentation concerns related to Melasma and other conditions show noticeable improvements and glowing skin after a few sessions.
Given its tremendous anti-aging benefits, one may assume that Microneedling is intended for the face only. On the contrary, it can be used to remodel any area of skin that needs repair. This includes areas with acne scarring, stretch marks and even areas of loose skin. There’s no doubt—the versatility of Microneedling makes it an exciting treatment for men and women of all ages seeking a simple, yet effective way to restore and rejuvenate their skin.
