Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure in which a Micro-Needling device with gold-plated hair-fine needles creates tiny punctures on the skin, most especially on someone’s face. This is said to stimulate collagen production, improving the skin’s overall appearance. 

Some of the benefits of Micro-Needling may include:

  • Reduces the appearance of your wrinkles and fine lines
  • Improving skin texture and tone
  • Minimizing acne scars
  • It helps even out pigmentation
  • Enhances the effectiveness of skincare products by allowing deeper penetration to your skin

The Reasons Why Micro-Needling is Beneficial for the Skin

Stimulation of Collagen

Micro-Needling is said to stimulate the production of collagen. This protein is responsible for the elasticity and firmness of the skin. Our body produces less collagen as we grow older, leading to wrinkles and sagging skin. Micro-Needling, on the other hand, can help boost collagen, resulting in firmer and more youthful-looking skin.

What is the role of collagen in the skin?

Collagen is a protein that plays an essential role in the structure and health of your skin. It is a highly abundant protein in the body and makes up a large portion of the skin’s connective tissue. It gives the skin strength, elasticity, and firmness.

These collagen fibers are arranged in a lattice-like structure, providing a supportive framework for the skin. This framework helps keep your skin firm and smooth and allows it to stretch and move without any damage. Collagen also helps retain moisture on the skin, which allows the skin to stay hydrated and plump.

However, no matter how abundant this protein may be in our bodies, its production naturally decreases as we age, which leads to wrinkles, sagging, and loss of elasticity. Exposure to UV rays and other environmental factors can also damage it and contribute to the skin’s aging.

Micro-Needling is a highly recommended procedure to stimulate collagen production in the skin. It is considered safe and applicable for all skin types. Additionally, there are various creams and supplements, and other topical products that are said to contain collagen in the market. However, it is highly recommended to consult with your dermatologist, who knows your medical skin history.

Reduction of Fine Lines and Wrinkles

The microscopic punctures created by the needles during Micro-Needling can also help to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. As the skin heals from the procedure, it produces new collages, which fill in wrinkles and give the patient’s skin a more youthful appearance.

Compared to other acne scars treatments, such as chemical peels, laser resurfacing, and subscision, Micro-Needling is less invasive and is not as painful compared to other treatments. In addition, it also has a shorter recovery time. However, Micro-Needling results may not be as dramatic as other treatments that require multiple sessions to achieve the desired results. 

Improved Skin Texture and Tone

Micro-Needling can also help to improve the overall texture and tone of the skin. This procedure address underlying causes of uneven skin tone, such as hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and melasma.

Hyperpigmentation can occur when an excess of melanin, a pigment that gives color to our skin, is produced in certain areas. Therefore, creating more dark spots or patches on the skin. Micro-Needling, on the other hand, helps lighten these areas by breaking down the excess melanin. As the skin heals from this procedure, new skin cells are produced, even the skin tone.

Sun damage is also another thing that causes uneven skin tone. UV rays from the sun cause the skin to produce more melanin, which results in age spots, sun spots, and other skin discoloration. The micro-Needling process, on the other hand, reduces the appearance of this skin discoloration by promoting the production of new collagen to help lighten the skin. 

As for melasma, this condition causes brown or gray-brown patches on the skin, mainly on the face. Although its causes are not well understood, its known triggers are hormonal changes, genetics, and sun exposure. Micro-Needling causes the breakdown of excess melanin, causing the skin to even out.

Minimization of Acne Scars

Micro-Needling can also be beneficial for those with acne scars. The needles used in the procedure can help to break down scar tissue, which can result in the appearance of the scars being less noticeable.

Acne scars are caused by inflammation and damage to your skin’s collagen fibers during the healing process of acne. The micro-needling procedure causes controlled injury to the skin, which stimulates new collagen production and can help to repair the damage caused by acne. This new collagen helps to fill in the indentation and smooth out the skin’s surface, thus reducing the appearance of acne scars.

Enhanced Absorption of Topical Treatments

This process also enhances the effectiveness of other topical treatments by allowing them to penetrate even deeper into the skin. Therefore, allowing it to get properly absorbed into your skin allows your skin to experience the full benefits that the product was created for.

Additionally, Micro-Needling creates microscopic channels on the skin surface that help improve the penetration of active ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C serum, which is applied after the procedure. These ingredients help improve the texture and appearance of the skin.

All in all, It’s always important to keep in mind that a licensed professional should only do this procedure. While Micro-Needling can have this many benefits, it’s not some magical cure-all treatment. The results may vary depending on skin type, age, and severity of the issues being treated.
