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 Reduces Fine & Deep Wrinkles
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
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
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.
