3 Reasons to Choose Micro-needling

Posted November 30, 2021 in Microneedling

2 Minute Read: 

Choosing the right technique for your facial skin rejuvenation is a very personal decision based on comfort levels, the type of skin damage you have, and individual expectations.

Arming yourself with a list of pros and cons for any procedure just makes good sense. For patients with fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, minor skin discoloration, or sun damage, a treatment involving noninvasive micro-needling is worthy of investigation.

Recent reports from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons make the very good point that regular noninvasive treatments that stimulate collagen production — like micro-needling — can substantially slow signs of aging.

This could reduce the need for more invasive, surgical solutions for aging patients.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Micro-needling?

Anyone in good general health who is unhappy with minor facial blemishes, large pores, minor scars, or discolorations is potentially a good candidate for microneedling. Be sure to discuss expectations with your plastic surgeon or technician to avoid disappointment.

There are a plethora of skin treatments out there — micro-needling may not be suitable for you, or it may be the perfect solution.

Why Choose Micro-needling?

There are many reasons why someone might choose micro-needling over some of the other facial rejuvenation treatments out there.

Here are just the top three:

1. Micro-needling stimulates elastin and collagen production — two of the key components for youthful-looking skin. This makes the procedure effective for smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, the kind that arises as a natural result of facial expressions, laughter, and, well, life.

Alongside maintaining a good skincare regime, occasional micro-needling treatments can prevent those lines from returning for a longer period. This can save both money and inconvenience in the long run.

2. Micro-needling helps even out the coloration of your complexion by removing sunspots and minor blemishes. Sustained sun exposure is a major cause of sunspots and areas of darker pigmentation that occur with age.

The treatment encourages the skin to rejuvenate, a healing process that is a natural result of small wounds inflicted in a defined area.

3. Micro-needling is also recommended to treat facial scars, including acne scars. The micro-punctures stimulate new growth, making your skin texture appear smoother and more youthful.

Although most commonly used on facial skin, micro-needling can be used elsewhere on the body as well.
