With so many different serums, lotions, treatments, and procedures touted as the cure for aging skin, it can be hard to determine what works and is a fluke. Microneedling is one of the many procedures people use to treat aging skin and is proven to reduce wrinkles effectively. But what is it? How does it work? Is it the ideal solution for you? The Spa and Laser Center offers microneedling in Virginia Beach and has helped hundreds of individuals regain their youthful glow. Read more to discover if microneedling is right for you.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, scarring, acne, skin pigmentation issues, rosacea, and more. During this procedure, an esthetician will puncture the skin with hundreds of fine needles to purposefully cause trauma to the skin. To do this, estheticians will use a small roller-type device or a pen with multiple fine needles. They will roll the device over the affected area and apply serums/lotions afterward to produce the desired effect.

How does it work?

In almost all situations, purposefully injuring your skin does more harm than good. However, with microneedling, this is not the case. Microneedling works by traumatizing the skin to produce collagen during the healing process, but not to the point of causing lasting damage. As your skin heals, it fills the small punctured areas with collagen. The effect is satisfactory, smoother, younger-looking skin.

Benefits of Micro-Needling

A study in the Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery (JPRAS) found that microneedling effectively reduced the appearance of scars and wrinkles. As such, microneedling can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions. Benefits of this treatment include:
  • Reduction in the appearance of wrinkles
  • Even skin tone
  • Removal of hyperpigmentation and age spots
  • Shrunken pores
  • Reduction of acne
Similarly, microneedling has little to no downtime or side effects compared to other procedures that offer the same benefits. Most individuals can enjoy the benefits of microneedling after just 24-48 hours.

MicroNeedling and Aging Skin

As evident from the numerous benefits of micro-needling, many people with aging skin find an ideal solution with microneedling. As we age, our body naturally produces less collagen and elastin (the chemicals that keep our skin plump, wrinkle-free, and youthful). Because microneedling stimulates collagen and elastin production, the result is more youthful and even skin. The skin becomes plump, fuller, and less wrinkled as the collagen fills the tiny holes left by the micro-needling device. Similarly, the elastin can help lift any sagging, drooping skin. And finally, you can expect brighter, more radiant skin.
