One of the biggest complaints we hear from our patients is that they are losing volume in their skin and getting more fine lines and wrinkles. And although we would love to give all of our patients the perfect pill to help their skin stop aging, we can only offer the next best thing: microneedling. So, what is microneedling and why is it so popular? Let’s take a closer look.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a form of collagen induction therapy that is designed to help your skin naturally produce more collagen. During your microneedling treatment, we will apply a topical numbing cream to your skin. Then, we will start the process which consists of using a small handheld device and rolling it across the skin. As the device is applied across the skin, it makes tiny punctures in the skin— these tiny punctures are what signals your skin to heal itself which makes more collagen in the process.
Why Is It So Popular?
The main reason why microneedling is so popular right now is that it gives patients real results every time. Microneedling can be used for more than just restoring volume to the skin. In fact, it’s good at helping with issues like hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and other forms of scarring. Another reason why it’s so popular is that it is minimally invasive which means that patients don’t have to worry about any surgery or a lengthy recovery.
Microneedling has gained popularity among men and women of all ages for its unique ability to give patients a clearer, more youthful looking complexion. Plus, when it’s done in conjunction with other treatments like Botox and fillers, patients get even better results.
