Our practitioner likens receiving a microneedling treatment to,"lifting weights," because it builds collagen and elastin the same way you build muscle at the gym. When you lift weights, you create tiny micro traumas in the muscle which the body quickly sends blood and nutrients to heal. In that same way, microneedling creates micro traumas in the skin which the body sends blood and nutrients to heal, only instead of building muscle, you build collagen.
Microneedling treatments are popularly known to improves the color and texture of skin, however few realize the extent of issues which microneedling can help. Four or less treatments can help rejuvenate sun damaged skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and even treat hyperpigmentation or areas of skin discoloration. It also works to reduce or even competely eliminate scars, especially smaller acne scars which can be brought to the surface by increasing collagen growth beneath them.
A 2019 study found that 97% of patients had a positive result to their microneedling treatment.
