Not seeing the improvements you want from your skincare routine? Some issues are too deep for topical products to treat. Microneedling works deep in the skin to trigger a powerful renewal process that smooths lines and wrinkles, evens your skin tone, and treats many other skin concerns. Despite the wide range of treatments available, microneedling remains popular because it offers a wide range of benefits. 

What is Microneedling?

The most important function of microneedling is to trigger new collagen production. This treatment is also known as collagen induction therapy due to its powerful effects. The tiny channels created by the needles activate cells called fibroblasts deep in your skin. These cells produce new collagen that makes your skin firmer and more even. Microneedling also brings healthy new cells to the surface to replace damaged or hyperpigmented ones.

Top 5 Benefits of Microneedling

Curious why Longwood Plastic Surgery offers microneedling over lasers as a way to stimulate collagen and improve your skin’s texture and tone? This treatment offers the best balance of effectiveness, versatility, and downtime, and it works on all skin types and tones. 

Fights Signs of Aging

Collagen loss is a natural part of aging, but microneedling can reverse this process. This new collagen restores your skin’s natural firmness, tightening skin laxity and smoothing lines and wrinkles. Microneedling also restores a youthful glow by replacing dull, damaged cells with healthy new ones. 

Treats a Wide Range of Skin Concerns

Along with signs of aging, microneedling can treat skin issues including:

  • Acne scars
  • Enlarged pores
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Rough skin texture
  • Dark spots

Discuss all your concerns during your consultation so we can determine whether microneedling is the best way to meet your needs. Significant signs of aging, such as sagging skin, may benefit more from a surgical procedure.

Deeply Hydrates Your Skin

We take advantage of the channels created by microneedling to infuse a hyaluronic acid serum deep into your skin. This compound helps attract and hold onto moisture in the skin, leaving it hydrated all the way to the dermis. Microneedling can also dramatically increase the effectiveness of other serums and treatments. 

Long-Lasting Results

After an initial series of three to six treatments, you can expect your microneedling results to last up to a year. Many people schedule maintenance treatments once or twice a year, allowing them to maintain their results indefinitely. 

Little to No Downtime

Microneedling requires minimal time out of your busy schedule. You can expect your skin to look mildly red and swollen for up to 24 hours after treatment, so you may choose to take the rest of the day off from social activities. Avoid applying harsh or irritating products for 24 hours after treatment and avoid sun exposure.
