Table of Contents

Microneedling is a new and exciting treatment that many women are turning to so their skin can look its best every day. Microneedling is not just for the face, but it can also be used on other parts of the body for specific needs. The procedure produces dramatic results in helping to reduce wrinkles.

It reduces wrinkles by helping to increase collagen production. The increase in collagen production is excellent for your skin. But you receive yet other added benefits from microneedling.

An example of an added value comes from helping with stretch marks and scars from surgery. So if you’re looking for different ways to improve your appearance without going under the knife, keep reading. You won’t want to miss answers to your questions about microneedling.


Europe has been doing microneedling for years. That’s because most European women who use it like it’s a minimally invasive treatment. The minimally invasive treatment works on acne or other types of scars due to its collagen induction therapy (CIT) technology.

The added value of collagen production in the skin has led many dermatologists to report that its primary benefits help improve fine lines. The reduction of wrinkles is produced by dermal rollers, skin needling. This is also known as percutaneous collagen induction therapy.

It is the collagen induction that reduces your skin’s hyperpigmentation. The process involves using a derma roller instrument, which creates tiny punctures into the top layers of your skin. These tiny punctures have natural healing agents deep inside your skin, where most aging issues begin.

Microneedling Results

If Europeans have been using microneedling for years, China has been using it for centuries. It was most popular in ancient China when they would use a pen that was made with needles to puncture the skin. In today’s application, it’s an old idea done in a new and innovative way.

Today’s microneedling creates fine punctures on the surface of the skin using the microneedles. Microneedles are typically between 0.5 and 1 millimeter in length and can be made of metal, titanium, glass, or plastic. Microneedling is typically done in a physician or dermatologist’s office.

It’s because the microneedles are in rows you receive small functions that cause pinpoint bleeding. It keeps gaining in popularity because it gives noticeable results. The type of results you cannot get with other nonsurgical treatments on the market today.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a simple and minimally invasive technique. It induces the body’s production of collagen, elastin, and other vital substances. Each microneedling session takes about an hour.

It’s usually done in a medical clinic, dermatologist’s office, or wellness and health center. Microneedling doesn’t have any major side effects. That’s because it’s all about creating controlled wounds.

Each pinpoint triggers the body’s natural wound healing. Your body does this by itself by producing new collagen and elastin fibers in its natural healing response.

Microneedling Under Eyes

As we get older, our body makes fewer collagen cells, and they stop producing as much collagen. It is collagen that keeps our skin firm, smooth, and wrinkle-free. But without enough new collagen production, our skin begins to sag and look wrinkled.

Microneedling helps the skin under your eyes look smoother and healthier. It all goes back to the stimulation of collagen and elastin that occurs in the area after microneedling under your eyes. The key microneedling ingredients usually include Vitamin C serums, Ferulic Acid, Retinoids, and Hyaluronic Acid.

Microneedling Benefits

Microneedling offers a number of benefits that include, but isn’t limited to:

1. Deep Penetration Of Skincare Treatments

Microneedling makes micropores in the skin. This allows for deeper penetration of topical skincare treatments. In addition, topical treatments after microneedling penetrate the skin deeper.

The deep penetration helps decrease fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps minimize pore size.

2. Increased Collagen and Elastin Production

There’s no getting around the fact that increased Collagen And Elastin Production are stimulated when microneedling occurs. This helps skin to look younger, tighter, and smoother.

3. Increased Natural Hyaluronic Acid

Microneedles also help increase natural hyaluronic acid, which is essential to healthy skin. Hyaluronic acid helps plump the skin, making it fuller and smoother looking.

One of the most valued benefits is microneedling anti-aging therapies that help improve skin tone and texture. Your skin tone and texture get a two-for-one deal with microneedling as it stimulates collagen and elastin. Both substances make skin appear younger and more vibrant.

Microneedling Facials

Microneedling facials are a great way to rejuvenate and renew your skin. A microneedling facial is a multi-step procedure that includes microneedling and products that help regenerate the skin. It includes massaging the face to help stimulate circulation.

The microneedling process creates “microscopic channels” in the skin. This makes microneedling an excellent procedure for anti-aging treatment. The micropores created during microneedling let skincare products go deep into the skin.

It’s deep in the skin that the skincare products do their best work repairing and restoring your skin’s health.

Benefits of Microneedling

You gain the benefits of microneedling almost as soon as you have the treatment. It is a treatment that is simple with a minimally invasive procedure. The microneedle rollers you need roll and create the small pinprick holes.

That’s when the micropores enable topical skincare products to penetrate the lower layers of your skin. There are no side effects with microneedling. Each micropore triggers your body’s natural wound healing response, resulting in new collagen and elastin.
