3 Benefits of Microneedling

Almost everyone experiences things they don’t like about their skin, especially with age. Over-the-counter products like creams, moisturizers, and serums are helpful, but these products are typically designed to do damage control and only target the surface layer of your skin. 

At Kennesaw Gynecology, we offer aesthetic procedures for the entire body at our office in Kennesaw, Georgia.

The benefits of microneedling

Microneedling targets some of the most common skin problems and is designed to stimulate collagen production, which naturally declines as we age.

Here are three of the benefits of microneedling.

1. Minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

As we age, the body produces less collagen and elastin, which causes the skin to sag, become less supple, and develop fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling creates tiny punctures on the surface of the skin to trigger collagen and elastin production, giving your skin a plumper, fuller, more youthful look.  

Fine lines and wrinkles are some of the first signs of getting older. Whether you have crow’s feet, smile or frown lines, or wrinkles between your eyebrows (bunny lines), microneedling can help them look less pronounced. 

2. Smoother skin and a clearer complexion

In addition to firming the skin, microneedling is also used to treat acne scarring, sun spots, and hyperpigmentation. In addition to triggering increased collagen production, microneedling also allows for topical treatments like vitamin C solutions to penetrate deeper into the skin for better results.

It’s also commonly used to treat skin that has been marked or scarred by stretch marks and rosacea.

3. More affordable than other aesthetic treatments

Depending on the number of sessions and your specific needs, microneedling can be more affordable than other aesthetic treatments.

Who should get microneedling?

Microneedling is safe and offers a less invasive alternative to other aesthetic procedures when compared to chemical peels or laser treatments. However, you’ll need to consult with our team before beginning any cosmetic procedure to ensure that it’s safe, and that it’s right for your skin type, especially if you have sensitive skin.

You may experience some redness for a few days after a treatment as the skin heals. Some people notice results almost immediately, but the full effects of treatment can take up to six weeks in some cases.
