Microneedling has evolved into becoming a revolutionary treatment for rejuvenating skin and improving its texture. This procedure's impressive results and minimal downtime are what really draw people to it. If you’ve heard of this treatment, you may be wondering what areas of the body and face you can get treated. In order to understand all the ways you can benefit from microneedling, however, you must first understand how it works.
Microneedling is a form of collagen induction therapy, a treatment that is designed to promote skin rejuvenation. Needles are used to gently create small punctures across the top layer of the skin, which stimulates the body to create new collagen and elastin. This system contains either 25 or 49 fine needles in the very tip of its handpiece, the depths of which can be adjusted to lie anywhere between 0.5 and 3.0 millimeters. At its lowest setting, 0.5 millimeters, the needles penetrate the stratum corneum, or the outermost layer of the skin. Your body then reacts to this as a wound and therefore dispatches fibroblasts to produce more collagen in the affected area. Basically, the punctures trick your skin into thinking it has been wounded, which causes the skin to thicken and see a great improvement in texture and tone. Microneedling is also popularly used to reduce pore size and rapidly heal acne scars.
When most people think of Microneedling, they instantly think of the face being the main area being treated. Luckily, this collagen-induction treatment can actually be used on many areas of the body, relieving issues like stretch marks, loose skin, hyperpigmentation, and scarring. A few other areas you could treat include:
Face & neck/décolletage
Hips & thighs
Backs of hands
