To the Point: Microneedling's Benefits

Are you ready to get your skin smooth and protected for summer? Perhaps your skin appears dull and you’d like to improve texture, fine lines, and acne scars. Microneedling is a wonderful treatment option for patients that aren’t ready for the downtime associated with ablative laser resurfacing treatments. It’s a year-round treatment suitable for most skin types, even if you’ve picked up a little bit of a sun glow this summer.

How does microneedling work?

Microneedling is a non-surgical minimally invasive treatment that uses ultra-fine needles to make controlled micro-injuries to your skin. The needles of the hand-held device puncture the skin to create channels. The body triggers the skin to respond to these micro-injuries by naturally producing new collagen and elastin to fill the channels. As we age, our bodies slow the production of collagen and elastin. By turning back the clock on this collagen and elastin loss, microneedling offers several benefits.

Benefits of Microneedling

Microneedling can reverse years of sun damage.  It improves fine lines, texture, acne scarring, large pores, and minor blemishes. This results in smoother, firmer, younger looking skin. The depth of the needle and the number of treatments depend on the area treated and the desired result of the patient. A series of treatments is typically recommended, about one to two months apart. Recovery time is minimal. You may experience some redness, tenderness, or minimal swelling the first 24 hours post treatment. At Dr. Chad Glazer’s Glazer Facial Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, we love to pair microneedling treatments with our other anti-aging services for a combination approach.
