You’ve probably heard about microneedling, but do you know all of the benefits it has to offer? Mirabile M.D. in Overland Park, Kansas, wants customers to better understand just what benefits you can expect to receive from a microneedling treatment, and we know that you will love it!

1.     Reduces the Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles

As we age, wrinkles and fine lines are bound to start popping up on our faces. Microneedling treatments can help combat these skin conditions by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. In the process, microneedling helps tighten up loose skin.

In addition to reducing the look of wrinkles and other signs of aging, micro-needling can also prevent the aging process from occurring by increasing collagen and elastin production. In effect, the process can stop aging before it happens, especially when combined with other anti-aging treatments.

2.     Reduces the Appearance of Scars and Stretch Marks

Microneedling has been known to reduce the appearance of scars of all kinds, including acne scars. To reduce the appearance of scars, microneedling breaks down old tissues and stimulates the production of elastin and collagen. As scars start to fade, the surface of the skin will appear smoother and more even in tone.

Stretch marks can be incredibly hard to get rid of, and they make some women feel self-conscious. To reduce the appearance of stretch marks, you can have a micro-needling treatment done. Very few cosmetic procedures can help with stretch marks.

3.     Improves the Texture of Skin

Skin texture can be hard to hide. Between scars, wrinkles, fine lines, acne, and other conditions that commonly affect the skin, you might notice that your skin has started to look rough and bumpy. Microneedling uses a lot of small needles to stimulate collagen and elastin production, which helps plump the skin to fill in the problems with texture on the skin. Generally, patients will start to see better skin texture immediately after a micro-needling procedure.

4.     Treats Acne

If you have acne or cystic acne, you know how painful and frustrating it can be to try to help your skin. Microneedling reduces blackheads and sebum production to tackle active acne, while also stimulating elastin and collagen to improve acne scars.

5.     Reduces Blackheads

Acne is annoying, but blackheads are especially stubborn! If you have a lot of blackheads, a micro-needling procedure can help release blackheads from pores. The procedure usually keeps blackheads away for about three weeks. In addition to removing blackheads, microneedling can also make pores smaller, which helps prevent more blackheads from forming.

6.     Provides Exfoliation

Dry skin is dull, so getting all of the old skin off and replacing it with new, fresh skin will help improve the appearance of skin. Exfoliation makes skin appear smoother and younger. Microneedling helps with exfoliation by disrupting the top layer of skin.

7.     Helps Even Out Skin Tone

Unfortunately, hyperpigmentation is more common than we want it to be. However, microneedling can help even out skin tone to make your skin look smoother.

For women with darker skin tones, microneedling is recommended over certain laser treatments. Some lasers, such as light-based lasers, can actually worsen pigmentation problems in those with darker complexions.

8.     Shrinks Pores

Are large pores a problem for you? Many women are concerned with the appearance of their pores. A myth surrounding microneedling states that the process can enlarge pores, but that isn’t the case. Fortunately, microneedling can help make pores look smaller by stimulating collagen production, which plumps up the pores and makes them appear small or closed.

9.     Makes Skincare Products Work Better

If you have invested in quality skin care products, you want to make sure that they are benefitting your skin as much as possible, right? Well, it is hard for products to penetrate into your skin. In fact, studies have found that only four to eight percent of the serum you put on your face is being absorbed. Microneedling improves the ability of product absorption into the skin. Since micro-needling creates a bunch of small holes in your skin, products can sink into your skin more easily.

10. Reverses Sun Damage

Sun damage is a problem for many women. Discoloration caused by sun damage can be noticeable and extremely frustrating. The extra pigmentation that sun damage causes can be erased by microneedling treatments, much like the other pigmentation issues that micro-needling can help with.
