Fortunately, there are a number of great non-surgical ways that men can rejuvenate their skin so it is smoother and younger-looking. If you are interested in refreshing your look, we recommend trying microneedling.
What is Microneedling?Microneedling uses very thin, surgical-grade needles. The needles are attached to a mechanical device that technicians will roll gently across the surface of your skin. As the needles prick your skin, they stimulate your body’s natural healing processes.
Your body will start to produce collagen and elastin, two proteins that are vital to young-looking skin. These proteins help your skin stretch and hold moisture, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and improving your skin tone. With higher levels of collagen, your skin will look smoother, more evenly colored, softer and more luminous.
What Imperfections Can Microneedling Treat?Microneedling can help erase many skin imperfections or make them less noticeable. It can be used to treat:
- - Pigmentation problems, such as age spots
- - Fine lines and wrinkles
- - Sun damage
- - Small scars
Most people begin to see improvements after a few weeks as the body produces more collagen. You’ll see final results by about 6 months after your treatment. To get the best results, you’ll likely need between 3 to 5 treatments.
You can combine microneedling with other nonsurgical treatments to really boost your appearance. Botox can help smooth wrinkles around your forehead and eyes. Chemical peels can also improve skin texture and tone.
You can also boost the results of your microneedling by taking care of your skin at home. That means you should:
- - Wear sunscreen every day, even cloudy days.
- - Use a gentle cleanser every day to keep your pores clean.
- - Use a gentle exfoliator once or twice a week to get rid of dead skin cells that leave you looking dull.
- - Use daily moisturizer to give your skin a healthy glow and prevent dull, dry patches.
