Microneedling can treat...
Enlarged Pores/Oily Skin Types
Microneedling is also known as Collagen induction therapy, it is non-invasive and works by creating microscopic puncture wounds. The healing process creates a stimulation of fibroblasts, collagen and elastin creating a new collagen-rich tissue. The skin is then more even in tone and texture.
Microneedling reduces fine and deep wrinkles
The procedure is a powerful way to stop ageing in its tracks and prevent new fine lines and wrinkles from forming. With its ability to trigger the generation of new skin cells, just a few sessions of microneedling will noticeably reduce fine lines, crow’s feet, and deep wrinkles on the forehead.
Microneedling repairs visible scars
In a 2009 study on the effects of microneedling, nearly 100 percent of acne-scarred participants reported a marked improvement in the visibility of their acne scars. In case you’re wondering how microneedling compares to fractional laser treatments when it comes to resolving acne scars, a head to head comparision published in the journal Dermatologic Surgery in 2016, found both treatments to be comparable and effective but gave credit to microneedling for being better tolerated, with fewer side effects and less downtime.
Microneedling reverses sun damage and pigmentation
Once again, collagen is arguably the most vital way to improve the look of skin, and this goes far beyond reducing wrinkles. By stimulating collagen growth with microneedling, you can also reverse sun damage and discoloration, including the hyperpigmentation that comes with melasma.
Microneedling helps ageing skin
On top of microneedling’s ability to smooth and correct damaged skin, it also has the added bonus of tightening loose skin, which makes it great for clients who are conscious of ageing skin. “skin rejuvenation, tightening, and scar remodeling”
Microneedling shrinks pores
One major microneedling benefit, is that it helps pores appear much smaller. Microneedling stimulates collagen in and around your pores, which causes them to plump and appear shrunken, if not closed.
Microneedling makes your products work better
Did you know that only 4-8% of that expensive serum you’re using on your face actually penetrates your skin? Another microneedling benefit is that it improves product absorption tremendously. The microscopic lesions act as little channels, allowing topical products to penetrate better and work more effectively.
