Microneedling is one of the industry’s most promising skincare innovations, thanks to its minimal invasiveness and impressive versatility. By harnessing your skin’s power to heal itself, Microneedling encourages the growth of new collagen for improved tone and texture. Over time, lines, wrinkles, and even some types of scars can fade significantly.
Microneedling is a deceptively simple procedure that can yield big results. The Microneedling tool looks a bit like a pen with extremely small — nearly microscopic — needles on one end. Your skincare provider moves the device over your skin, creating a few small punctures. These stimulate your skin to engage its healing capabilities, boosting its production of natural collagen. This is especially noteworthy because the body’s collagen production naturally diminishes over time. Microneedling can help bring collagen back to youthful levels.
Microneedling is a versatile procedure that can be used to reduce the appearance of the following:
- Lax, sagging skin, especially along the jawline
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Thin or “creepy” skin
- Certain kinds of scars, including acne and chicken pox scars
- Enlarged pores.
What is it used for?
This procedure is most often used to reduce signs of aging on the face, such as fine lines or wrinkles, as well as to smooth the appearance of acne scars.
With Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections
Microneedling with PRP is done using the Microneedling pen along with PRP to infuse the PRP into the skin on the surface and down through the epidermis where the pen makes tiny holes. PRP injections are done by using a needle to inject the PRP under the skin into the dermis. Microneedling with PRP leaves your face red for a couple days. PRP injections will not leave your face red but may leave it a bit swollen or some bruising because of the injection itself and the use of needles.
