With microneedling, your skin is pierced with tiny needles to stimulate your body’s natural rejuvenation process. Micro-wounds trigger your body’s healing response, which creates new tissues, collagen, and elastin.
By reducing wrinkles, tightening loose skin, and diminishing scarring, the procedure improves the appearance of your skin.
Lotus Laser Skin offers microneedling for a healthier, more rejuvenated appearance for your skin.
How does microneedling work?
Microneedling involves puncturing the skin with multiple tiny needles. A numbing agent is applied in our office before treatment begins. A key component of the process is the stimulation of collagen production, a protein that maintains the skin’s firmness and smoothness. Collagen levels in your skin decrease with age, causing fine lines around delicate areas and deep wrinkles.
As the micro-openings heal, your skin tone and texture gradually improve. It may be necessary to undergo a series of treatments in order to achieve optimal results.
Five benefits of microneedling
It is so popular because it does not involve surgery and is suitable for all skin types, including darker, thin, and sensitive skin. Are you still not convinced? Microneedling treatments have the following five benefits:
Enhances the texture of the skin
Collagen and elastin, two vital components of your skin, begin to diminish around the age of 30. Your skin’s healing response is induced by microneedling. As soon as the procedure is completed, your skin reacts and closes the micro-wounds. Following treatment, your skin is noticeably softer and smoother.
Reduces scarring’s appearance
In the same way that microneedling treatments improve your skin’s overall texture, they reduce acne scars. Scarring occurs when the body undergoes fibrosis, which pulls the skin down, causing unsightly irregularities. Additionally, hyperpigmentation may result from acne, blackheads, and whiteheads.
Using microneedling, you can correct any changes in your skin’s color that cause it to appear blotchy.
Acne, including blackheads, is reduced
The microneedling treatments may benefit you if you still suffer from acne or blackheads. After the sterilized needles poke holes in your skin, they remove the source of the recurring blackhead. The pores around your nose should appear smaller after the procedure.
Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
When microneedling penetrates the dermis of the skin, it triggers growth factors that allow your skin to repair itself. Microneedling turns back the hands of time by targeting fine lines and wrinkles. Eventually, your body produces collagen, tightening the skin and reducing wrinkles.
Slows down the aging process
It is highly effective in stopping early signs of aging or preventing new wrinkles from forming if you add microneedling treatments to your regular self-care and anti-aging routine. In order to maintain luminous and youthful-looking skin for longer, you can combine microneedling sessions with powerful antioxidant serums like vitamin C.
Side effects of microneedling
You can lower your risk of minor side effects by taking a few precautions. Drink plenty of water before the treatment and don’t wear makeup to your appointment. Avoid excessive sun exposure and limit strenuous physical activity after the treatment. Do not exfoliate or use skin products containing alcohol.
