What exactly is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a major treatment in the skincare world that is becoming all the rage. With good reason too! It can do so much! You see the process of microneedling involves using a wand that creates tiny little wounds into the skin. While they are super small and micro they cause the skin to respond by sending healing responses that help boost the skin strength, skin radiance, skin health and of course plumper skin overall. While results can take up to 6 weeks to see, but as the skin is in the healing process- the results slowly boost the appearance of skin- leaving you glowing, and gorgeous.
5 BENEFITS OF MICRONEEDLING
Here are 5 major reasons/benefits that microneedling is something everyone should add into their skincare journey.
1 // CREATES COLLAGEN
Microneedling creates tiny skin punctures, so your skin instantly goes into healing mode. The result of this is stimulation of collagen- which means plumper, smoother, lifted skin.
2 // REDUCES HYPERPIGMENTATION
Say goodbye to sun damage, hyperpigmentation and unwanted uneven skin tone- as microneedling stimulates collagen- this also means that new healthy collagen helps flush out the damaged tissues in the skin to help reduce or eliminate blemishes and pigmentation.
3 // FEWER LINES AND WRINKLES
We all want the fountain of youth right? Microneedling might just be that. You see as fresh collagen is produced in the skin – it means that the skin restores moisture, elasticity and volume- therefore resulting in fewer lines and wrinkles and a smoother overall appearance.
4 // FILLING IN SCARS AND PITTING
If you are someone who has dealt with acne now or in your past- you might have scarring formed in the skin. From ice pick to boxcar scarring – microneedling can help restore the collagen matrix as it can help encourage the scarred area to be plumped and filled out – reducing the appearance of scars and evening out texture.
5 // REDUCES BLACKHEADS
No one like blackheads right? You see blackheads are clogged pores filled with sebum (natural skin oil) , and microneedling can help break up the sebum plugs in the skin to help lessen and restore the skin’s natural system. This can also help reduce the appearance of pores in the process- I can that a win, win!
So there you have it 5 simple benefits that make a HUGE difference in the skin, based on incorporating microneedling into your skin journey. Have you tried microneedling? I’d love to know your story and results. Let me know in the comments below…
