Microneedle Therapy: Poking Holes in Traditional Skincare
If you have never heard of a thing called microneedle therapy, consider yourself in good company, as the treatment is one that many people are unaware of. Over the past few years, however, it has begun gaining an increasing amount of attention as one of the most effective skin care treatments for a wide range of issues.
Microneedle therapy is very much what it sounds like: the use of extremely fine needles to prick hundreds of invisible holes in the epidermis, which is the top layer of skin. These microscopic punctures then stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process to regenerate skin cells, causing cell turnover and an increased production of collagen and elastin. In the end, the skin is essentially rejuvenated—so if you are hoping to reverse the signs of aging or even prevent them, microneedling could be your fountain of youth.
On Pins and Needles
At Navarre Wellness, our aestheticians have been specially trained in microneedle therapy using the innovative microneedling device created by Rejuvapen. Developed to be one of the most advanced systems available, the Rejuvapen microneedle pen features a uniquely designed beveled tip that eliminates the risk of clogging and suction that can often occur during a microneedling facial and uses a medical grade HEPA filter to block airborne blood pathogens, making it incredibly safe. Rejuvapen also features a stainless steel “infinite” dial to increase its precision and allow depth adjustment, and its adjustable speed provides customization to each patient, ensuring greater comfort during treatment sessions.
Even if you are not in immediate need of a treatment to reverse the signs of aging, the benefits of microneedling may still be advantageous in preventing visible toll that simple living can often take on the skin. Simply by boosting the natural processes of collagen and elastin production and cell turnover, microneedling offers visible results including:
- Filling in fine lines and wrinkles and preventing new ones from forming.
- Reducing the appearance of acne scars when cell turnover occurs and deep-tissue scarring is replaced with new skin tissue.
- Reversing uneven pigmentation and sun damage as new skin cells replace the damaged or discolored areas.
- Tightening loose skin as elasticity is increased and plumpness is restored.
- Minimizing the visibility of pores, which occurs when the collagen in and around pores is stimulated by the needle’s perforations.
- Increasing the efficacy of skin care products, which occurs as the skin absorbs them more readily due to the newly created open channels in the skin caused by the needle’s punctures.
Much like laser therapy treatments, microneedle therapy provides extremely effective results through a minimally invasive treatment that can be done in a matter of minutes with no downtime and little discomfort.
Though many people use microneedle therapy to address facial skin concerns, it can actually be performed on any area of skin that show signs of damage such as stretch marks or acne scars including the legs, chest, back, and buttocks. Full effects are noticeable in as little as four to six treatment sessions, depending on the severity of the issue.
