4 Benefits of Microneedling

4 Benefits of Microneedling

Microneedling is seeing a surge in popularity, and it’s easy to see why. It’s a minimally invasive aesthetic procedure with the power to smooth lines and wrinkles, improve skin tone and texture, and even reduce acne scars.

But how does it work? And more importantly, is it right for your skin?

At its essence, microneedling creates tiny wounds across the surface of your skin to stimulate your body’s natural healing response. Healthy new cells grow, and you enjoy smoother, younger-looking skin.

Daniel Moghadam, MD, and our team at Modern Aesthetica specialize in microneedling in Santa Monica, California. It’s a customizable treatment, and we believe microneedling offers benefits for almost everyone.

Here’s what microneedling could do for you:

1. Minimize fine lines

Loss of collagen is the leading contributor to aging skin. Collagen is a natural building block in your skin, and as collagen levels decrease, your skin gets thinner and loses volume. Thin, loose skin gets creased and lines and wrinkles form.

Microneedling treatment stimulates collagen production deep within your skin. Increased collagen production builds up the structures of your skin. Lines and wrinkles start to fade, giving you a smoother complexion.

2. Tighten skin

Along with lines and wrinkles, loss of collagen contributes to skin laxity. Lax skin is crepey and appears droopy around your eyes, nose, and mouth.

Microneedling tackles sagging, lax skin, too. Because it triggers increased collagen production, it has a tightening effect across the surface of your skin. After microneedling, skin appears tighter, with fewer lines and folds.

3. Improve skin tone

Microneedling isn’t just for aging skin. Even if you haven’t noticed lines and wrinkles, other common skin concerns can impact your confidence. Uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, sun spots, melasma, and more can make some areas of your skin a different color than the rest.

Microneedling treatment exfoliates the top layer of your skin, and that uneven skin gently peels away. The exfoliation process reveals fresh, even-toned skin underneath.

4. Reduce acne scars

Severe acne can leave behind scars that stick with you long after breakouts clear up. Unfortunately, acne scars and other facial scars make skin pitted and uneven — and they’re notoriously difficult to treat.

Microneedling is an effective solution, because it stimulates healing from within. Healthy new skin cells trigger skin remodeling to fill in depressions and reduce the look of scars. Plus, microneedling can even help reduce active acne breakouts.

Getting started with microneedling

No matter your skin concerns, microneedling might be the answer you’re looking for — and it doesn’t require invasive surgery. Dr. Moghadam and our team offer comprehensive consultations to help you determine if microneedling is right for you.
