How Does Microneedling Improve Your Skin?

Anyone looking to restore their youthful looks should consider microneedling. With this process, it may be possible to reduce fine lines and wrinkles among many other things. We'll cover how this treatment can improve your skin, but first, it's important to understand how microneedling works. If you have any questions, it's smart to talk with an expert.

The Basics of Microneedling

With microneedling, a device is used to insert numerous tiny needles into the skin. One of the popular devices for accomplishing this is a derma roller. According to the National Library of Medicine, the standard medical derma roller has 192 fine microneedles. Thus, when the derma roller is rolled over the skin, hundreds of needles penetrate the skin in a painless and efficient manner.

The needles will create tiny micro-injuries. This is important because the injuries will actually stimulate the body's natural healing processes. This, in turn, can encourage the body to address fine lines, wrinkles, and other issues. Let's take a look at the more specific ways in which microneedling can improve your skin. If you have any questions, jot them down so you can ask a professional later.

Microneedling Stimulates Elastin and Collagen Production

Elastin and collagen are two crucial proteins used by the body to accomplish a variety of things. Collagen provides structural support and much of the skin is made up of this protein. Collagen can also encourage hydration. Ultimately, there are 28 different types of collagens found in the human body. Microneedling can encourage the production of these important proteins. Elastin is also very important for the body and microneedling can encourage the production of this protein as well. Elastin allows the skin to both stretch and recoil. Increasing this protein will tighten skin and smooth fine lines and wrinkles.

Microneedling Can Help with Scarring

Unfortunately, many people have scars that can reduce their confidence and overall well-being. Fortunately, microneedling may be able to reduce scarring either from acne in your teenage years or something that occurred due to an accident. By stimulating the body's natural healing process, microneedling can make scars less severe and noticeable.

Medical professionals believe that microneedling offers many other benefits. For example, it may encourage the skin to absorb skincare products and may also help even out skin tone. Ultimately, if you're looking to address skin-related issues, microneedling could go a long way.
