Microneedling has recently become super popular, thanks to influencers and models alike posting about their skincare routines on 'the Gram'.
But, is microneedling really for everyone? Here’s everything you need to know about microneedling…
What is Microneedling?
This technique is also known as “collagen induction therapy” because these traumas literally “wake up” the skin and stimulate its natural healing processes. This can lead to both increased collagen and elastin production as a result of stimulation of growth factors. Collagen and elastin are proteins considered to be the “building blocks” of the skin, as they help keep the skin looking youthful, with a firm, smooth, and stretchy texture.
Stimulating their growth is super beneficial as the skin will appear younger, healthier and glowing.
In addition to stimulating the renewal of the skin, Microneedling is also great because the tiny injections in the skin help topical ingredients get through the skin barrier, making them way more effective. The best solutions to use to boost a microneedling treatment are Hyaluronic Acid, C and multivitamin complexes.
