What does Microneedling do? | Why you need this treatment

Curious about why there is now a trend for having tiny needles poked into your skin? A lot of people have heard about microneedling but what does it really do? How do you know if microneedling is a treatment that would truly benefit your skin? Here are some reasons why it may be the perfect treatment you need to get healthy, glowing, ageless skin. 

Really though…what does microneedling do?

Microneedling is a procedure during which tiny needles are used to create controlled micro injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. What does collagen do for your skin? Collagen is an essential protein that provides elasticity to your skin. It helps your skin appear more youthful, vibrant and glowing. Collagen isn’t just good for your skin though. It’s also extremely beneficial for your hair and nails, gut health, brain health, and weight loss. The tiny needles that are used during the treatment serve to create small micro-channels which allow your skin to absorb creams and serums more effectively into the dermis (the thick layer of living tissue below the epidermis which forms the true skin, containing blood capillaries, nerve endings, sweat glands, hair follicles, and other structures). After the treatment a hyaluronic acid is applied to the skin as well. Post treatment you will have a thicker dermis and your skin will be toner, tighter and have an improved color to it.
