Sometimes called Collagen Induction Therapy, microneedling is a cosmetic treatment designed to improve the look of your skin. The process is simple, and the healing period is short in comparison to some other cosmetic procedures. Depending on the type of skin issue you’re experiencing, this procedure may be exactly what you need. Here are some examples of what it can do.
Reduce Acne Scars
Severe cases of acne can leave behind pockmarks and other damage. One of the nice things about microneedling is that it can help fill in those areas and give the skin a smoother texture. Depending on how much damage was done, this procedure may eliminate most of the problem.
The same thing applies to skin damage left behind by blackheads and other types of scarring. Even if you were someone who would attempt to pop and drain pimples or blackheads instead of using some sort of topical product, this approach can minimize the damage that’s left behind.
Smooth Wrinkles and Fine Lines
Whether you have a brow that seems to be perpetually wrinkled or have laugh lines around the mouth or the eyes, there is no reason to live with them for the rest of your life. Microneedling makes it possible to smooth those lines and wrinkles without the need for a more invasive procedure. The fact that you’ll see the results sooner rather than later makes this approach all the more appealing.
Tighten Loose Skin
If you’ve lost a fair amount of weight in a short period of time, your skin may look a little loose in a few places. One of the things that microneedling can accomplish is helping to tighten that loose skin. Our professional can provide an idea of how much tightening the procedure will produce. In many cases, you’ll find that the need to undergo a more aggressive cosmetic procedure is not necessary.
Minimize the Appearance of Stretch Marks
Stretch marks develop as a result of weight loss, pregnancy, and a few other issues. Rather than assuming you have to live with those stretch marks, it pays to find out what microneedling can accomplish.
Fade Brown Spots
Sometimes called age spots, brown spots leave the skin looking a little mottled. Did you know that microneedling can fade those spots? With the right approach, they will be less obvious.
