5 Reasons Microneedling Is So Beneficial for Your Skin

5 Reasons Microneedling Is So Beneficial for Your Skin

While it might seem counterintuitive that numerous tiny needle pricks enhance the texture and tone of your skin, the reality is that microneedling is incredibly beneficial for your skin. 

Here, our team of expert providers at Serendipity Med Spa in Southlake, Texas, explains the science behind microneedling and lists five ways it benefits the appearance and health of your skin.

1. Microneedling boosts collagen production

Did you know that microneedling is also called collagen induction therapy? That’s because microneedling induces, or causes, your body to ramp up collagen production. 

That’s one of the biggest secrets behind microneedling’s popularity. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein that provides structure for your skin. It’s what makes your skin resilient, vibrant, and youthful.

Collagen production starts to slow down as you age, however, and without the structural support of collagen, you’re apt to see fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling combats this by creating micro injuries from the tiny needles. Your body reacts to these tiny wounds by triggering self-healing mechanisms, including increased collagen.

In other words, microneedling is good for your skin because it encourages your body to create more collagen. 

2. Microneedling reduces the appearance of wrinkles 

As your body produces more collagen, you should notice an improvement in your skin’s strength and elasticity. This can make your skin appear more firm and your fine lines less visible. 

3. It enhances your skin tone

Years of sun exposure can lead to hyperpigmentation, sun spots, and a rough, dull texture. Microneedling enhances your complexion by improving cell turnover to give you a more even skin tone. 

4. Microneedling reduces the appearance of acne scars

Even years after acne, the residual scars can affect your self-confidence. The American Academy of Dermatology says microneedling works best for depressed acne scars because the process stimulates your skin’s repair process, smoothing out the texture.

Microneedling can reduce the appearance of other scars, too. This includes scars from burns, surgery, and other trauma.

5. Microneedling takes platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to the next level

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is the key ingredient in a vampire facial, which combines microneedling with the added benefit of PRP. On its own, PRP contains a high concentration of platelets, which are healing compounds naturally found in your blood. 

Your PRP serum is prepared right here in our office using a sample of your blood. The tiny microneedles create small puncture wounds that allow the PRP serum to penetrate below the surface of your skin and trigger healing responses.

There’s no denying that microneedling does wonders for your skin. It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, creates a more even skin tone, improves your skin’s texture, and can even help reduce age spots and acne scars.
