Sometimes even the best skin care products don’t cut it. If you’re looking to improve skin concerns such as facial acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, or uneven skin texture, a skin rejuvenating treatment can do wonders for your complexion!
Microneedling is a revolutionary treatment that stimulates your body’s natural healing response, increasing collagen production for an undeniable glow. This treatment has skyrocketed in popularity due to its dramatic anti-aging benefits that can be further enhanced when combined with radio-frequency energy or PRP (platelet-rich plasma).
At Elite MedSpa, Marion, Ohio, our team of medical experts perform microneedling on countless patients, of every age, who are loving their results.
Among the wide range of benefits of microneedling, here are our top 5 reasons why you need to try this treatment!
Firm and plump the skin
Collagen and elastin are the two proteins responsible for keeping your skin looking plump and youthful! Unfortunately, as we age, our body slows down the production of these proteins leading to the unwanted wrinkles and sagging we all dread.
Microneedling is also aptly named collagen induction therapy. During the procedure, small, sterile needles are used to create tiny punctures on the surface of the skin, stimulating the natural production of collagen, restoring the structure and elasticity of the skin!
After a series of treatments, a noticeably youthful appearance is revealed, leaving you with firmer and plumper skin at any age.
Smooths fine lines and wrinkles
Injectable treatments such as Botox and Dysport are great for preventing wrinkles and reducing the appearance of dynamic; lines, however, they aren’t as effective at smoothing out deeper static ones. As the production of collagen and new skin cells are ramped up, deeper lines begin to fill out, turning back the clock to your younger years.
Areas that are typically hard to treat with injectables, such as lines around the mouth and eyes, can be dramatically improved with microneedling! After your treatments, you will see continual benefits and improvement for several weeks following.
Improves scarring and hyperpigmentation
Acne scars can leave an unwelcome reminder of what was once there and leave you with rough-looking skin! This frustrating issue prevents you from achieving that smooth complexion and even skin tone you desire. This common concern is difficult to treat with your typical skin care products and they are often here to stay for long periods of time.
Similar to how wrinkles are filled in with the new production of collagen, the crater-like appearance and darker pigmentation of acne scars can also be smoothed out. With increased skin cell turnover and blood flow, your skin is encouraged to naturally heal itself.
Reduces the appearance of large pores
Dealing with larger than wanted pores? They can be a pesky problem and almost seem impossible to treat! As microneedling restores the structure and firmness of the skin, the plumping effect reduces the appearance of large pores, leaving you with a smooth and flawless complexion.
Honorary mention: your skin products work better
Micro channels created in your skin through the tiny punctures improve the absorption of topical products, such as moisturizers and serum, into the deeper layers of skin. The combination of microneedling with medical-grade skin care products is often enough to dramatically transform your skin!
Dr. Katabay can also combine the technique of microneedling with PRP (platelet-rich plasma), further boosting the results. This addition to the microneedling procedure further enhances collagen production and lends your skin the natural healing properties and growth factors that are contained in your own body’s platelet-rich plasma.
How many treatments do I need?
Optimal results are generally seen with a series of three treatments. As your skin experiences the lasting effects of boosted skin cell turnover and collagen production, you’ll continue to see improvements for several weeks following your treatment as your skin steadily repairs itself.
