As you know, in our clinic, we use the SkinPen UK device to provide a high standard microneedling service to all of you.
We have always been keen to offer this treatment in our clinic, so when we were introduced to the amazing SkinPen device which is the leading skin remodelling device and learnt all about their brand and what they stand for, it was the final sign we needed to take the plunge.
There are many benefits to microneedling, some that you might not even think about, so in this blog, we thought it would be fun and educational for you if we discuss all the incredible benefits.
If you have been considering starting microneedling, this might help define an answer for you.
1. Reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
We all want to stay looking youthful for as long as we can, so when premature aging presents itself in the form of fine lines and wrinkles, it’s easy to become conscious of this.
The temporary microscopic channels that the microneedling puts into your skin, boost your collagen and elastin production in order to fight the lines and wrinkles. Collagen and Elastin are compounds within your skin which add structure and strength which keeps your skin looking youthful.
With the microscopic channels causing tiny injuries in your skin, this stimulates your skin's natural healing power to increase the likes of Collagen and Elastin, in return, making your skin look healthier and more youthful by making fine lines and wrinkles less visible.
2. Scar Treatment
One of the greatest benefits of microneedling is that it works wonders on scar tissue.
So if you suffer from acne or other scars, this treatment will be your best friend. The stimulation of Collagen and Elastin is extremely effective on these scar types. However, it isn’t possible to treat keloid or raised scars.
3. Sun damage
If you suffer from sun damage, hyperpigmentation and age spots, microneedling is effective in reducing them. Having a blotchy or brownish complexion as a result of spending too much ime in the sun, this treatment has the ability to reinvigorate your skin's appearance and tone.
4. Anti - Ageing
When you get older, your skin loses its elasticity, and appears lax. It can also look dull and lack the natural glow, however, microneedling can change this.
The collagen that occurs in response to the microscoping channels in your skin, helps improve the skin's structure by fighting sagging. Not only this, but your skin will discover a radiant glow just 24 hours after your first session.
5. Minimises pores
This point may seem confusing as the process of microneedling includes punching tiny little holes in your skin's surface. Surprisingly, this does not increase the size of your pores at all, in fact, it does the opposite.
The microneedling helps your pores look much smaller due to the stimulation of collagen surrounding your pores plumping the area around them which makes the pore itself almost disappear.
Overall, microneedling has many benefits, this is just 5 of them. If you are wanting to begin this treatment, you can simply sit back and watch your skin appear more youthful and rejuvenated with our SkinPen precision service that we offer.
We will be bringing you a part two of this blog with another 5 top benefits of microneedling next month, so watch out for that.
