Signs of aging on your skin, like fine lines, and wrinkles, can make you self-conscious about your looks and negatively affect your quality of life. Fortunately, Dr. Michael Paltiel offers a microneedling procedure that helps to reduce signs of aging and improve your appearance. Microneedling is a procedure that creates tiny injuries in your skin which stimulates your skin’s natural healing ability to repair itself.
Here are the benefits of microneedling.
It helps tighten sagging skin
As you age, your skin produces less elastin and collagen, two vital skin proteins that make skin seem and feel firmer and more robust. Skin becomes looser and more prone to wrinkles and creases when elastin and collagen synthesis slows down.
Through microneedling, your skin is given a series of small “micro-injuries.” These injuries trigger your skin’s natural healing mechanisms, increasing the creation of collagen and elastin. This results in skin that is firmer and tighter.
Furthermore, because microneedling is entirely customizable, you may concentrate on particular regions where skin laxity is a serious problem, obtaining a natural outcome that never appears “pulled.”
It minimizes wrinkles and fine lines
In addition to addressing skin elasticity, increased elastin and collagen synthesis also helps lessen wrinkles and fine lines. Wrinkles and fine lines become more obvious when your skin loses volume and flexibility. Additionally, factors like sun exposure and others can harm the skin at deeper levels, which superficial therapies like moisturizers and others can’t repair.
Your doctor employs microneedling to reach the deeper skin layers under the skin’s surface. This encourages skin restructuring and lessens the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Additionally, when paired with PRP or skin nourishing serums, microneedling allows the products to penetrate the skin more deeply for potentially greater effects.
It treats scars and stretchmarks
Scars and stretch marks develop when the skin is injured, whether by trauma like a cut or by being stretched beyond its natural range. Scars and stretch marks show where collagen and elastin fibers have been damaged.
Scars and stretch marks are prevalent, despite your best efforts to preserve your skin, and there is little you can do to undo the harm.
But by dismantling that damaged tissue and encouraging the growth of fresh, healthy tissue, microneedling can assist. Your skin’s natural repair process is accelerated after microneedling therapy, reducing the appearance of scars and stretch marks and revealing cleaner skin.
There is no downtime
Microneedling is a minimally invasive, nonsurgical process, therefore neither incisions nor anesthesia are necessary. This implies that the danger of side effects is substantially lower than with invasive procedures, and there is no need for a recuperation time; you may continue your regular activities right away.
It’s likely that the treated area will seem somewhat red and sunburnt. The redness shortly fades away, though. During the initial phases of healing, it’s essential to protect your skin from the sun’s UV rays and to keep it moisturized. Nothing else requires special consideration.
It improves your general skin health
Microneedling boosts your general skin health and enhances your skin’s appearance. Your immune system restores the skin damage by boosting blood flow.
More blood means your skin is getting more of the nutrients and oxygen it needs to be healthy. Your skin’s texture and tone will also be enhanced by improved blood circulation, making it appear more youthful and vibrant.
