Top 10 Amazing Benefits of Microneedling To Uplift Your Skin

In this blog, we’ll be going through the best 10 benefits Microneedling can promote. For individuals who are considering microneedling it’s important to know why it’s the perfect treatment for you! We’re here to help you all the way so you can get that younger, more refreshed look you have always been wanting! 

Microneedling reduces wrinkles and fine lines

One of the best benefits you can get from microneedling is a reduction of wrinkles and fine lines. The additional collagen production prompted by the fine needles helps to plump out and smooth the skin – ultimately reducing wrinkles.

A study on the safety and effectiveness of microneedling mentioned that with the increase of collagen production – collagen combats wrinkles so with individuals struggling with unwanted lines and wrinkles, microneedling is a great option.

Skin elasticity is also improved with the increased production of elastin, which results in more youthful-looking skin alongside the increased collagen production.

Scar Removal for Smoother Skin

One of the most common benefits Microneedling promotes is the successful removal of scars, such as acne scars, due to increased stimulation of collagen and elastin into the skin. For efficient scar removal, the procedure needs to be carefully executed with the microneedling being gently rolled over the scarred areas, resulting in a smoother skin texture.

Depending on the severity of your scars, more than one session may be needed. At The Aesthetics Doctor we can tailor your skin care needs with our bespoke consultations if you have concerns about the severity of your scars – some questions you may have in mind:

  • Which types of scars respond best to microneedling? 
  • Are there any different needle depths depending on scar type? 
  • What are the potential risks of microneedling depending on the scar type? 
  • Is microneedling suitable for raised or keloid scars? 


Microneedling evens out your skin

 
Individuals who suffer from skin issues such as uneven pigmentation, sunspots and age spots are perfect candidates for microneedling. With the treatment involving micro-injuries, the extra stimulation of collagen and elastin can help fade hyperpigmentation, thus promoting a more even skin tone.

For individuals with darker skin tones, microneedling is one of the safest options compared to laser treatments which can sometimes exacerbate pigmentation issues causing different implications.

 

Microneedling shrinks large pores


As more collagen is produced, the skin becomes more plump – this also results in smaller and less noticeable pores which makes it a great use-case to shrink pores and create amore smooth skin texture.

Smaller pores including blackheads should also be treated with the right aftercare including the appropriate use of some sort of Vitamin C serum for an overall revitalisation of your skin.

 

Microneedling improves acne for a clearer, calmer skin

Microneedling is an effective treatment to improve acne providing efficient results (seen above). With microneedling you can generally see acne benefits such as:

  • Reduction of blackheads 
  • Reduction of sebum production for a less-oily face
  • With the stimulation of elastin and collagen production, over time it improves acne scars.
  • Excess sebum responds well with Microneedling as it helps to unclog the pores, thus reducing the production of the excess oil. 

Microneedling helps soothe and improve Rosacea


As we age and lose collagen over time, the skin is more prone to Rosacea, which leads to skin redness and increased inflammation. Microneedling works by creating collagen production to reduce the symptoms of Rosacea. It’s the perfect procedure to directly address the root cause of your Rosacea symptoms which reduces the visibility of blood vessels.

 

Microneedling enhances your daily skincare routine 


After getting Microneedling, you should see a general uplift in your skin quality. However many patients will want to see sustained skin growth over a long period and that is where Microneedling helps you along your skincare journey.

 

The micro-holes that are created in the skin from the microneedling allow for better absorption of the skincare products you’re currently using. This leads to more effective results and deeper penetration into your skin when you’re using your serums and moisturisers.

 

Think of it as an alternative to skin booster injections where the application of microneedling and your bespoke products can significantly help give you that lift your skin needs.

 

As mentioned, microneedling can improve skin issues such as acne scars and uneven skin tone. Regular application of your skincare products after the procedure radiates your skin even more.

 

Microneedling can reduce your stretch marks


Microneedling is a great option if you want to make your stretch marks less prominent. Alternatively, PRP treatment (commonly known as Vampire Facials) is also a great option to reduce your stretch marks.

 

We recommend utilising both microneedling and PRP treatment to further enhance the rejuvenation process of less visible stretch marks. This is due to the combined procedures of breaking down the damaged tissue, and replacing it with healthy tissue through microneedling and PRP to achieve a more uniform look and improved skin texture.

 

Hair growth is often promoted with Microneedling 


Derma rollers are becoming more common as a procedure to stimulate more hair growth, however, microneedling is a popular option to treat hair conditions such as alopecia areata. The increased collagen can help increase the blood flow in the scalp to revive dormant hair follicles. This allows for new growth of hair in areas that may be patchy.

 

Similarly to an enhanced skincare routine, microneedling for your scalp can also help improve the use of topical hair growth products such as Minoxidil, due to the tiny punctures made in the scalp. Maximising effectiveness is crucial to see sustained hair growth so it’s important to consider a treatment like microneedling to see satisfying results.

 

At The Aesthetics Doctor, we offer a form of PRP treatment for hair loss, however if you are interested in considering the combination of microneedling and PRP treatment individuals can always request a callback to ask any questions.
