Microneedling has become a very popular type of treatment for many different skin conditions, such as acne, age spots, sun damage and hyperpigmentation. What makes microneedling so useful for treating skin conditions is that it can induce collagen production without damaging the top layer of the skin.
Below are some of the main things that microneedling can be used to treat-
- Early signs of aging –
Microneedling is very effective at treating the early signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles. This is because early signs of aging are caused by the loss of collagen and elastin, both of which are increased by microneedling.
- Scarring –
Microneedling has shown to be effective at treating most types of scars, including acne scars and keloid scars. Scars are formed due to the abnormal formation of collagen. By breaking up the old scar tissue and encouraging the production of new collagen and elastin, microneedling helps to fade out scars very effectively.
- Stretch marks –
Stretch marks appear when the skin is stretched beyond its natural level of elasticity. Stretch marks are very common in women who have gone through pregnancy and people who are, have been, significantly overweight. Microneedling is effective at fading out stretch marks for most people.
- Age spots –
Microneedling is effective at treating age spots in a couple of different ways. Firstly it will help to shed the top layer of skin and therefore reduce their appearance. Secondly it will help the absorption of any topical treatment products you are using.
- Acne –
Microneedling can be an excellent treatment for improving the absorption and efficacy of topical acne products. However you must be careful when using a dermaroller for treating acne since it can spread bacteria on your face. This is why professional treatment is always recommended.
- Rosacea –
Rosacea is a skin condition that leaves the face looking red and rashy. It can be caused by a number of things, including sun exposure, diet and temperature changes. Microneedling can help clear up rosacea by increasing the production of collagen in the body.
