Would you like to restore the youthful appearance of your skin? Microneedling may be the solution you’re looking for. Microneedling is a trendy skin rejuvenation treatment that has been around for many years. It is well-known for its ability to treat a variety of skin concerns, and improve the radiance of the skin, but can microneedling also give you smoother skin.
What is microneedling?
Microneedling also known as collagen induction therapy is a minimally invasive treatment, in which a hand-held device fitted with tiny needles, is used to rejuvenate the skin.
Can microneedling give me smoother skin?
Yes, microneedling can give you smoother skin because it boosts collagen production, and when collagen levels are high the skin becomes smoother, plumper, and more youthful.
How microneedling smooths the skin
The microneedling device is rolled across the skin, and the tiny needles create controlled puncture wounds that trigger the body’s natural repair process. As the skin heals, new collagen is produced, which helps fill in wrinkles, fine lines, and scars, resulting in smoother, firmer skin.
Microneedling also makes topical skin care products absorb better. Combining microneedling with the application of hyaluronic acid (HA) can enhance skin smoothing results, as HA adds moisture to the skin.
Each microneedling treatment takes about 30 minutes, and there is very little downtime.
How many microneedling treatments do you need to see results?
It typically takes 3-5 microneedling sessions to achieve the best results. Sessions are spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
