Microneedling is a trusted cosmetic treatment to improve the overall appearance of the skin. In particular, microneedling can benefit patients struggling with textural concerns such as acne scars and fine lines. This minimally invasive cosmetic treatment can give your complexion a smoother, more refined look by stimulating the skin’s natural healing process.
Microneedling is an aesthetic treatment that uses tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin at various depths. The injuries trigger the body’s natural healing process, which involves collagen and growth factor production. As more collagen and growth factors are created, the skin will repair itself, gradually appearing smoother, healthier, and more youthful.
Many people today have acne scars or rough skin texture that bother them. These concerns can be caused by several different factors, from clogged pores to sun damage to age and even genetics. While the skincare products you use can help improve skin texture over time, microneedling can significantly improve your complexion. The collagen produced resulting from microneedling will smooth out and tighten the skin while causing the pores, scars, and fine lines to appear more refined.
