If you are looking for a skin care treatment that provides astounding benefits with very little investment of time and with very few side effects, microneedling may be for you. This treatment does pretty much what its name states, with microscopic needles being rolled over the skin to improve skin tone, texture and overall health. If you are on the fence about this procedure, learning more about how it can refresh your skin may help you to realize what a great treatment it could be for you.
Microneedling is a minimally-invasive treatment for your skin. While it is most often used on your face, it could be used elsewhere to provide its amazing benefits. During your microneedling treatment, the practitioner will use a special device to create microscopic channels in your skin. Although it may seem counterintuitive to affect your skin in this way in order to make it healthier, understanding how your body works will quickly let you see how great this treatment can be.
When any part of your body is injured, including the skin, your body quickly senses the injury and rushes blood to the area. This blood is filled with a variety of different cells and chemicals that are necessary for repairing the area. In the skin, the blood will decrease risk of infection while also improving the skin with a variety of growth chemicals in conjunction with life-giving oxygen that is always found in the blood. As these tiny injuries heal on the skin, new skin cells grow in the area to replace the old, dead or damaged ones. In addition, collagen located deeper beneath the surface of the skin is targeted to grow faster and better, leading to your skin looking smoother and plumper than ever.
This treatment can decrease some of the most common signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, and decrease minor sagging of the skin by improving collagen production. Many people also love to use it as a scar treatment, especially for old acne scars that have left pock marks in the skin. Other positive benefits of microneedling include improving your skin’s glow and decreasing hyperpigmentation.
Microneedling is an amazing treatment option for nearly anyone and can improve your skin tone and texture while helping you appear more youthful. To set up your first appointment with us at aFresh® Med Spa & Plastic Surgery in Glenview, contact us today!
