What’s the Deal With Microneedling?

Microneedling | SKIN Medical Spa | San Francisco, CA

If you’re big into the latest trends— especially when they involve skin care, then you have more than likely heard about microneedling. Microneedling is a non-invasive, collagen induction treatment that involves using hundreds of tiny microscopic needles to puncture the skin. Once the skin is punctured, its natural response is to heal itself and give you more collagen in the process. But, other than that, what’s the deal with microneedling and why is it so popular? Let’s take a closer look.

It’s Non-Invasive

It can feel like you’ll do just about anything to get a more youthful looking complexion— even if it involves surgery. But, with microneedling, you don’t have to undergo surgery. Microneedling gives patients more youthful looking skin without surgery or a lengthy recovery. In fact, even though your skin may be a little red afterward, you can go back to work or whatever else you were doing.

It Doesn’t Require Any Chemicals

If you like to live your life as green as organic as possible, then microneedling may be worth considering. Because microneedling is based on the principle of your skin naturally healing itself and creating collagen in the process, you don’t have to worry about any foreign additives or chemicals entering into your body.

It Helps With Wrinkle Reduction

Not only does microneedling itself help encourage the natural production of collagen, but it is also used to help the skin absorb age-fighting ingredients like Retinol and Vitamin C.

It’s More Affordable

Another reason why our patients at SKIN Medical Spa keep coming back for microneedling is that it’s more affordable than surgical treatments.

It Can Help With Other Areas

In addition to helping increase collagen production on your face, microneedling can also help minimize the appearance of stretch marks across your body— which is another reason why it has gained popularity.
