Microneedling is a common procedure that many people use to treat a variety of skin problems effectively. It’s often a more affordable option for people, and it can deliver amazing results in as few as three visits!
Some of the most common skin problems can be reduced through professional microneedling. We’ve broken down which skin problems microneedling tackles best!
Which Skin Problems Does Microneedling Tackle Best?
Microneedling works to reduce the appearance of acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and pore size. Results are often seen after one treatment, but best results are achieved after three or more consistent treatments.
Acne ScarsMicroneedling is commonly used to heal and reduce the appearance of acne scars. Of course, it’s not just limited to scars caused by acne. If you have any type of scarring on your face, microneedling can be used to reduce the appearance of those scars.
Because microneedling encourages your skin to heal itself and turn over new skin cells and collagen, the appearance of superficial acne scars can be greatly reduced in as few as three treatments!
Fine Lines and WrinklesIf you’re looking to combat early signs of aging, microneedling might be the best procedure for you! Because microneedling promotes new collagen growth, it can increase skin firmness and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Microneedling can help reduce the appearance of light laugh lines, crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines. Deeper lines and wrinkles are better reduced by a procedure like Forma Accelerated or Time Eraser Anti-Aging Facial.
HyperpigmentationMany people who suffered from acne or sun damage have hyperpigmentation scarring. These dark spots on your face can be corrected with microneedling! The process promotes new skin growth, which helps overturn those discolored skin cells.
Keep in mind that microneedling will likely not completely get rid of all hyperpigmentation, but it can help even out your skin tone overall, especially if you have mild discoloration.
Pore SizeLarge pores are a common feature that people want to reduce the appearance of. While you can’t actually reduce the size of your pores—thank genetics for that!—microneedling can reduce how large your pores appear.
Because microneedling encourages new collagen growth, your skin will be firmer and contain more elastin, which in turn makes your pores appear smaller and your skin look smoother!
Does At Home Microneedling Fix These Problems as Well as Professional Microneedling?
DIY at-home microneedling has risen in popularity in recent years, which can help your serums absorb better but typically gives minimally noticeable results. Professional microneedling, when done by a licensed aesthetician, will give better, more reliable results without the risk of infection and injury.
Both treatments can be used as part of a skincare regimen, but when using your at home microneedling, just remember the results will differ. The main benefit of at home microneedling is absorption of products, while the main benefit of professional microneedling is to combat signs of aging and acne scars.
