Rejuvenating Your Skin: What You Need to Know about Microneedling

There are a lot of skin treatments available to help you have fresher, younger-looking skin. One of the best methods for flawless skin is microneedling. This procedure is all natural and minimally invasive. It is preferred by many celebrities, including Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Aniston, and Demi Moore, all of whom are constantly praised for their youthful appearance. Learn more about microneedling and how it can help your skin.

How It Works

Microneedling prompts the body to produce additional collagen and elastin, which makes skin fuller, firmer, smoother, and more evenly toned. As we age, collagen and elastin production begin to decrease. In fact, the decrease begins at about age 25. Microneedling prompts the body to repair the skin, sending collagen and elastin to the area.

All Natural

Microneedling is a completely natural and safe procedure. Needling has been used as a skincare treatment for ages, and it was used by the Chinese and the Egyptians. Microneedling as it exists today was developed with scientific backing and trials. Since nothing is being injected into the skin, it is all natural. And, because it is minimally invasive, it is completely safe. You may have some swelling immediately after your procedure, but it will subside within hours or days. Microneedling is appropriate for all skin types and skin tones.

What to Expect

When you have your microneedling procedure, a pen with 12 microneedles is applied to the skin. These small punctures do not hurt, although you may have some slight discomfort during the procedure. The punctures are not large enough to cause damage to the skin, but they are enough to stimulate collagen and elastin production as the skin repairs itself. Most people need more than one treatment for optimum results, and it may be a few months before you see your final results.
