What Skin Problems Can Microneedling Treat?

Find out more about this popular cosmetic treatment and whether it’s right for you.

With age comes wisdom—and, of course, a few lines and wrinkles, too. If you’d like to keep the wisdom but get rid of the wrinkles or other imperfections, you don’t need to turn to cosmetic surgery to get excellent results. Many individuals can improve their skin’s appearance with microneedling, a non-invasive skin resurfacing procedure that triggers collagen and elastin production.

What Is Microneedling?

To understand the benefits of this cosmetic skin treatment, it’s essential to understand what this treatment involves. During microneedling, a small device containing tiny needles is directed over the skin. By causing microscopic pricks or traumas to the outside of the skin, this stimulates collagen, which in turn helps to generate healthier, more youthful skin.

What Are the Benefits of Microneedling?

Microneedling can offer you a variety of benefits, including,

  • Smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles
  • Diminishing the appearance of superficial scars (e.g., acne scars)
  • Reducing stretch marks
  • Treating early signs of aging
  • Excellent results without needing surgery
  • Little to no downtime

 What Skin Problems Can Microneedling Treat?

You may be an ideal candidate for microneedling if you are looking to improve,

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun spots
  • Acne scarring
  • Enlarged pores
  • Skin tone and texture
  • Skin’s elasticity
  • Other superficial scars

 While this treatment is primarily used to treat early signs of aging and other facial issues, the procedure can also be used on different areas of the body like the thighs and abdomen to treat stretch marks.

How Long Is the Microneedling Procedure?

Before we begin treatment, topical anesthesia will be applied to the face or treatment area about a half hour before the procedure to minimize discomfort. Once the area is numb, we can start the procedure, which only takes about a half hour to complete. The entire treatment process usually takes about one hour.
