If you suffer from fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars, it may be time to consider Microneedling at Anushka Spa & Cosmedical Centre in West Palm Beach, FL. No matter how many creams and serums you try, nothing will compare to the results you will achieve with Microneedling. Microneedling is exactly what is sounds like. Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment in which our aestheticians at Anushka’s Cosmedical Centre create tiny punctures in the skin using very fine needles ranging from 0.5 to 2 millimeters in diameter. These tiny punctures trigger the body’s wound healing process resulting in collagen stimulation and elastin production.

Upon completion of the microneedling treatment, topical products such as hyaluronic acid and vitamin C are actually able to penetrate deeper into the skin’s layers in order to achieve better results. Just like any treatment, there are a few things to consider before microneedling procedure. Here, Anushka Cosmedical Centre’s Director of Medical Aesthetics, Dr. Bonnie Marting D.N.P., A.N.R.P., will explain the seven things you need to know before trying microneedling and much more!

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling or collagen induction therapy incorporates the use of fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of the skin. This sounds great right? We didn’t think so. However, this minimally invasive skin treatment at Anushka Spa & Cosmedical Centre, is virtually painless as well as incredibly effective at reducing fine line and scarring. “The punctures from the needles we create helps stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process, that helps generate collagen and elastin production, therefore renewing the skin and preventing signs of aging” says Dr. Bonnie Marting, D.N.P., A.N.R.P., at Anushka Salon & Cosmedical Centre in West Palm Beach, Florida. Essentially microneedling creates similar effects of lasers, however, instead of using heat or light, we are injuring the skin mechanically with tiny needles.

Microneedling Reduces Fine & Deep Wrinkles

One of the most commonly known benefits of microneedling is its ability to help stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which are key components in younger, more youthful looking skin.

A few medical professionals may go as far as saying microneedling is one of the most effective means of not only stopping aging on spot but also prevents future fine lines and wrinkles from forming in the first place. Microneedling has the ability to trigger the generation of new skin cells.

Many clients at Anushka’s Cosmedical Centre experience noticeably reduced wrinkles on the forehead and fine lines in only a few sessions. Dr. Bonnie loves this procedure due to its natural production of collagen and elastin produced in the body. Another reason microneedling is a highly favorable procedure is due to the limited amount of downtime following this treatment.

Microneedling Repairs Visible Scars

Nearly, 100 percent of Anushka Cosmedical Centre’s clients reported a significant improvement in the visibility of their acne scars. For moderate to severe acne scarring, we recommend, professional microneedling therapy where our needles are longer. We can offer a wide array of needle sizes dependent on your needs. Microneedling at Anushka Cosmedical Centre uses professional grade microneedling devices that can extend up to 3mm, which is twice as effective for deep scarring.

Severe acne scarring occurs deep beneath the skins surface, which is why we recommend seeking a professional who specializes in microneedling for severe scarring. While specific laser treatments may produce similar effects when treating acne scarring, the Journal of Dermatologic Surgery in 2016, gave credit to microneedling for being better tolerated by clients due to less side effects as well as decreased downtime.

Microneedling Reverses Sun Damage and Pigmentation

As previously stated, collagen is possibly the most effect means of improving the look of your skin. This applied to more than just the pesky wrinkles we can’t wait to get rid of! With the intensity of the sun in Southern Florida, many clients have undergone microneedling therapy to reverse the damage from the sun as well as discoloration such as hyperpigmentation.

The process has shown promising results for blotchy, brownish facial pigmentation caused by the sun. For extra pigmentation resulting from sun damage, Anushka Cosmedical specialists recommend using a 1.0 mm to 1.5 mm needle in length. After only a few sessions, our clients experience a radiant glow in comparison to their skin previously.

Microneedling Helps Aging Skin

Microneedling is also a haute commodity for those with problems related to aging skin. As time goes on our skin begins to lose the once perfectly elasticity. The overall process has the ability to not only smooth but correct damaged skin as well as the added bonus of tightening loose skin. This is why this process has become so popular for older men and women looking to reduce the effects of aging. As we age, we produce less and less collagen naturally. However, with microneedling, the damage caused by the penetration of appropriately sized needles for your needs, initiates the body’s natural healing process.

As part of the healing process the body produces more collagen and elastin that helps the skin maintain it’s tightened, youthful appearance. Microneedling based on a study in the International Journal of Dermatology confirms that microneedling is a new way to achieve “skin rejuvenation, tightening, and scar remodeling,” and that it offers a “simple and effective treatment for photo aged skin” with minimal side effects and downtime.

Microneedling Shrinks Pores

Many clients find it hard to believe that creating hundred of piercings to your skin will result in decreasing the appearance of large pores. In reality, as the body produces more collagen from the damage created underneath the skin, your pores become more plump than before resulting in the appearance of smaller pores. Often times our clients at Anushka’s Cosmedical Centre find that some pores even appear completely closed. And if we took a poll, who wouldn’t want visibly smaller pores?

Microneedling Helps Your Products Work Better

Did you know that you are literally throwing away 92-96% of that pricey serum you use on your skin? Yes, you heard us right. Only 4 to 8% of your product actually penetrates the skin. That is one of the most favorable added bonuses of microneedling. Microneedling helps to increase your skins absorption rate. Studies confirm that the treatment can actually help topical medications penetrate skin more efficiently, allowing you to reap the full benefits of any product. As we create the hundreds of tiny holes in the skin, your most favorable products have the ability to work their way in. Clogged pores can only let in the product they have room for which isn’t much. The tiny holes in the skin essentially make the perfect path for your serums to seep to the levels in which they were intended.

If you are ready to stop throwing away expensive products and to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars, give Anushka Cosmedical Centre a call at 561.820.8055 for your free consultation. It is time to see if microneedling is right for you.
