Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic surgery that encourages your body’s natural aging processes to slow the appearance of aging. The procedure draws from the body’s natural rejuvenation process by simply piercing the skin with tiny needles. The body responds to the micro-wounds by triggering its healing response, which creates new tissues, elastin, and collagen.

During the procedure, a numbing agent is applied to the skin before using multiple tiny needles to puncture the skin. As the micro-openings heal, your skin texture and tone will gradually improve. A complete micro-needling procedure takes about 30 minutes. Healing usually takes 24 hours or up to 3 days, depending on the extent of the treatment. You can return to your normal daily routine immediately after the treatment and even revert to your normal skincare routine, like wearing makeup in just 24 hours. Skin improvement will be visible in 40 to 48 hours after micro-needling. Here are the top reasons more and more people are turning to microneedling to achieve a youthful-looking skin.

Reduces fine lines and wrinkles

As you age, the amount of collagen in the skin reduces. This is what leads to fine lines near delicate areas. Over time, the fine lines become deeply set wrinkles. If you are unhappy with the wrinkles or fine lines on your skin, microneedling can help turn back the clock. The procedure works by stimulating the production of both elastin and collagen.

Collagen is a protein that serves as the building block of the skin. Elastin, on the other hand, is a different protein that enables the skin to bounce back to its original shape after it has been stretched. The two play a crucial role in the health and appearance of the skin. After the treatment, your skin will be both smoother and softer.

Improves your complexion

The problem most people deal with is an uneven complexion. This is caused by many things, with hyperpigmentation being one of them. If you have dark spots that are caused by aging or the sun, you can improve your appearance with microneedling in Etobicoke. The reason the procedure is so effective in treating hyperpigmentation and discolouration is because of its ability to trigger the production of collagen. This is the protein that improves the texture and tone of your skin. Over time, you will notice the dark spots, sunspots and other blemishes start to fade.

The effectiveness of microneedling is what makes it a preferred treatment for melisma. This is a skin condition that results from excess skin pigmentation. This condition gives the skin blotchy patches of dark-coloured skin.  

Still on improving your complexion, did you know that this skincare treatment can make the pores of your skin appear smaller? Renewed collagen production helps shrink the pores, thus making them less noticeable. This happens because new collagen will develop in and around the pores. The skin becomes plumper, and the large pores are reduced.

Reduce visible scars

Acne on your face may be gone, but the scars that are left can have a lasting effect on your self-confidence and self-esteem. The good news is microneedling can be the solution you have been looking for. The treatment stimulates the repair process of the skin. This will allow the skin to fill in the recessed acne scars and eventually improve the look and texture of your skin.

In addition to treating acne scars, the treatment is quite effective in treating blackheads. As the tiny needles poke holes in the uppermost skin layer, they end up removing sources of recurring blackheads.

Still on scars, microneedling is used to treat scars caused by surgery and trauma. When scarring happens, the body goes through fibrosis. This pulls the skin down and creates unattractive irregularities on the skin surface. You can also sustain hyperpigmentation from whiteheads, blackheads or pimples. The use of microneedling over scars helps break down the skin fibers that make up the scars. The procedure also boosts the production of collagen, which, in turn, reduces the severity of scars. In the long run, you will have skin that is firm and smooth. The procedure can also be used to get rid of stretch marks.

While effective advanced laser treatments are available for skin rejuvenation, most people are not good candidates for laser treatments. Microneedling is the perfect alternative for patients who want results but can’t access or don’t want laser treatments. Microneedling is also not without some minor side effects. They include bruising, dryness, redness, swelling and skin irritation. You can lower the risk of these side effects by drinking plenty of water before treatment and avoiding wearing makeup and exfoliating after the treatment. You also need to avoid excessive exposure to sunlight.
