What Is Microneedling, And Why You Should Invest In It

Microneedling is the latest in the list of new, state-of-the-art skincare treatments that help fight wrinkles and boost collagen. However, there’s a lot of misconception attached to the treatment, and many people are hesitant to try it as a skin rejuvenation treatment. Learn all about microneedling and its advantages by reading this blog.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling uses the skin wound response in a controlled setting. The treatment uses a device with tiny sterilized needles puncturing the skin’s top layer. This triggers the skin’s healing process, and as a result, collagen production increases, improving the skin’s texture and elasticity and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

Skin Loft offers RF microneedling that use radiofrequency waves in conjunction with needles to heat the skin and increase collagen production.  For those who has sensitive skin like those who suffer with Rosacea or keloids, RF Microneedling is a better option.   

Why Is It Good For Your Skin?

Reduces or Removes Acne Scarring

The punctures caused by microneedling force the skin to generate new skin cells, diminishing acne scars and other imperfections on the skin. The punctures also break down scar tissue to allow collagen and other nutrients to enter the scarred area to heal itself faster. 

Evens Out Skin Tone, Reduces Pore Size and Smoothens Skin Texture

Uneven skin tone can be caused by sun damage, scars, dryness, and decreased collagen production. Microneedling improves the skin’s cell turnover, which helps even out the skin tone and reduces hyperpigmentation. The increased collagen production also tightens and brightens the skin as well reduces pore size and smoothens skin texture.

Thickens The Outer Skin

Our outer skin layer, the epidermis, naturally thins out with age, increasing wrinkles and fine lines with time. Microneedling increases the blood flow under the skin, improves cell turnover, and helps the skin maintain ideal thickness levels.

Reduces Fine Lines

Fine lines appear because of the muscle movements underneath the skin. The movements cause the skin to develop lines that become permanent over time. Microneedling causes the skin to increase the production of elastin which improves the skin’s elasticity and prevents fine lines from becoming permanent.

Reduces Wrinkles

As we age, collagen production decreases, and the top layer of the skin becomes loose. This leads to wrinkle formation. Microneedling prevents collagen depletion and boosts its production, which tightens the skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
