5 Reasons Microneedling Is So Beneficial for Your Skin

Have you heard of microneedling? It’s a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that helps reduce the signs of aging through your body’s own natural processes. In fact, our clients at the Ventura Institute for Dermatologic Arts in Ventura and Camarillo, California, have been achieving amazing results with this technique. Here are five reasons why microneedling is so beneficial for your skin.

1. Reduces fine lines and wrinkles

Are you unhappy with all the fine lines and wrinkles you see each time you look in the mirror? They’re a natural part of aging, but you can use microneedling to help turn back the clock. It works by stimulating collagen and elastin production, making your skin look smoother and firmer.

In case you don’t know, collagen is a protein, or building block, of the skin and many other areas. Elastin is a different protein that helps your skin bounce back to its original shape after it gets stretched. They both play an important role in your skin’s health and appearance. 

2. Results in better skin tone

Microneedling effectively reduces skin discoloration and hyperpigmentation (also known as dark spots) caused by the sun and aging. It breaks up these areas and improves cell turnover, helping you look younger on your face, neck, and hands — all those areas that reveal your true age.

3. Improves acne and other scars 

Do you have acne scars or marks leftover from when you had chickenpox? Microneedling helps fill in these recessed scars. It can also help break up the tissue in scars that are raised, leaving you with a smoother skin texture overall.

4. Triggers your body’s natural healing response

After the fine needles prick your skin, your skin is traumatized and your body’s natural healing processes kick in. Don’t worry. It’s relatively painless because we use a numbing agent on the area to be treated first. The result is fresher, more youthful-looking skin. 

5. Produces new collagen

Collagen helps keep your skin firm and wrinkle-free. But as we age, our skin loses its suppleness and elasticity. Your skin may even sag, making you look older than you really are. Microneedling stimulates collagen production and plumps your skin, which makes you look younger.
