What Is Microneedling?

If you have tired looking skin, uneven skin tone, or you just want your skin to look better, you owe it to yourself to find out about microneedling from our dermatologist.

What You Need To Know About Microneedling

Your skin is exposed to toxins, the effects of poor diet, not enough hydration, and aging. It’s natural for your skin to look tired over time. Tired skin makes you look tired too. There is a solution. It’s called microneedling. 

So, what is microneedling? It’s a dermatological treatment using a roller device with tiny needles on the surface. The roller is applied over your skin. The tiny needles create areas of microdamage. Microdamage does a few things to benefit your skin, including: 

  • Stimulating collagen production 
  • Stimulating cell renewal 
  • Boosting circulation in your skin 

When you choose microneedling, you can look forward to: 

  • Improved skin tone and skin firmness 
  • Improved skin texture and more radiant skin 
  • Increased facial volume and improved facial contours  
  • Reduced blemishes and clearer skin  

Microneedling is a popular aesthetic service because treatment: 

  • Requires little or no downtime 
  • Doesn’t require cutting or surgery 
  • Provides naturally beautiful results 

In addition to the microneedling treatment, your dermatologist may recommend additional serums. Microneedling enhances absorption of nutrients, vitamins, and other substances to fight aging, treat skin conditions like acne, and enhance the appearance of your skin. 

Microneedling can be used in combination with other anti-aging and aesthetic services including: 

  • Botox, to relax wrinkles and fine lines 
  • Dermal fillers, to increase youthful volume to your face 
  • Chemical peels, to resurface and renew your skin
