3 Reasons Why We Love Microneedling

3 Reasons Why We Love Microneedling

When it comes to facial rejuvenation, you’re thankfully spoiled for choice. Cosmetic surgery is always on the backburner if you need it, but you can treat wrinkles and sun damage with minimally invasive treatments. One of the best among these therapies is microneedling, a versatile treatment that can address a variety of skin problems at once. 

Laughlin Plastic Surgery in Annapolis, Maryland, provides cosmetic skin services including microneedling. Dr. Daniel Laughlin and his team can walk you through the microneedling process and help confirm if it’s right for you. 

How microneedling works 

Your skin naturally replaces and refreshes itself, but sometimes a little boost is necessary to help you look and feel your best. This is why chemical peels and dermabrasion are popular treatments; they rejuvenate by stripping the old skin away. 

Microneedling works a bit differently. Like the name implies, it uses small needles to inflict micro-injuries. While it might seem counterintuitive to injure yourself, the needles are small enough that they only gently stimulate the skin’s healing process. This draws blood to the upper layers of your skin, helping it heal tighter and healthier. 

3 reasons we love it 

The biggest benefit of microneedling is its versatility. Instead of seeking out multiple treatments for different skin problems, microneedling can help you address everything at once. 

1. It reduces signs of aging 

Two proteins are responsible for much of your skin’s texture: collagen and elastin. Collagen provides volume, while elastin allows it to hold its shape. As you age, your skin creates less of these proteins, but microneedling can help boost production of both for smoother, more supple skin. 

2. It brightens your complexion

Microneedling doesn’t just help tighten your skin, it can also help brighten it. By drawing increasing blood flow to your skin, microneedling can address hyperpigmentation like sun spots and melasma, and blemishes like acne scars and enlarged pores. The result is a more even, fresher skin appearance.

3. It’s safe on all skin colors 

One unfortunate fact of many cosmetic treatments is that they haven’t always been safe for people with darker skin tones. Microneedling simply activates your body’s natural processes, with little risk of pigment changes compared to other treatments. 

To sweeten the deal, microneedling is minimally invasive and requires no downtime. As long as you give your skin proper aftercare, you shouldn’t experience very many side effects. Just use gentle cleansing products, moisturize, and wear sunscreen in the days following your treatment.
