It’s non-surgical, safe and a more-natural way to get the clean, clear and youthful-looking skin that you truly desire.
But what can it really do for you? What is it? And how does it work? Keep reading to find out…
1 – Reduce Your Fine Lines & Wrinkles
Struggling with dull, ageing skin? Microneedling benefits include reversing some of the signs of ageing by reducing fine lines and wrinkles such as crows feet, smile lines, smokers lines and forehead creases. By provoking skin cell regeneration we can stimulate the production of new collagen and give your body the resources it needs to create new, stronger and smoother looking skin.
2 – Minimize Your Pore Size
Large pores can be a real problem. Not only are they unsightly, but having big pores can make you more prone to skin problems such as acne and blackheads. Microneedling benefits include helping to reduce your pore size, cleaning out any dirt, eradicating the acne-causing bacteria and giving you clearer, better-looking skin.
3 – Tighten Your Skin
Loose or sagging skin on your face can make you look older than your years and leave you suffering from low confidence. By stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin (the cells that give your skin its structure and hold it together) we can tighten your skin, giving you that smooth, firm appearance.
4 – Stimulate Collagen Production
Collagen has dominated the spotlight for several years now when it comes to anti-ageing and skin treatments – and it’s easy to see why! Collagen is essential for strong, smooth and healthy-looking skin. Using medical skin needling treatments we can instruct your body to produce more, stronger collagen: rejuvenating your skin and giving you a more youthful appearance.
5 – Improve Scars
One of the lesser-known microneedling benefits is its ability to reduce scarring. Acne scars, burns, stretch marks and other scarring on your skin can make you feel self-conscious but microneedling could be the answer. By stimulating your body’s own healing response and delivering the substances it needs to regenerate deep into the layers of your skin, we can promote healing and reduce the visibility of old or new scarring.
6 – Reduce Hyperpigmentation
Hyperpigmentation is a common condition in which patches of skin become darker in colour than the rest of your skin. While it’s not a health concern, it can have a negative impact on how you feel about your appearance. This darkening occurs when an excess of melanin (the brown pigment that produces your normal skin colour) collects in the skin.
Using medical microneedling we can encourage your body to break down these deposits of melatonin and replace the cells with new, fresh and normal-coloured skin. Giving you back your clear beautiful complexion once again.
So What is Microneedling?
Microneedling (also known as medical skin needling) is a non-surgical treatment that uses tiny needles to stimulate regeneration in the skin, to give you a clearer, smoother and younger-looking appearance.
It’s safe, effective and hugely popular with men and women of all ages.
As you can see above, it can be used to treat many different problems, from general ageing to acne scarring and hyperpigmentation. By combining it with a specialist serum that gets needled into the skin we can enhance its effects, giving you noticeably firmer, blemish-free and youthful skin.
How Does It Work?
During a microneedling treatment, we use a specialist machine that makes lots of microscopic puncture holes in the surface of the skin. These puncture holes stimulate the body to start healing, replacing your old, weakened cells and creating more, stronger collagen and elastin (the cells that give your skin that firm, smooth appearance).
But that’s not all. We can also use the needles to deliver powerful, rejuvenating substances deep into the layers of your skin that need it most.
Stem Cell Microneedling Benefits
Here at Elite Aesthetics, we offer a stem cell microneedling treatment that delivers a specialist Calcerium Serum deep into your skin. These stem cells secrete a mix of proteins, growth factors and cytokines that can help to strengthen the tissues, improve collagen production and increase cell turnover within the skin. Helping to reverse the signs of visible ageing, smooth skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Vampire Facial Microneedling Benefits
Alternatively, you could opt for a Vampire facial which harnesses your body’s own collagen-stimulating platelets to boost regeneration and enhance your results.
During this revolutionary skin needling treatment, we take a little of your own blood and place it in a centrifuge to separate out the platelet-rich plasma. We then use the needling technique to get this healing plasma into the deeper layers of skin, where it can stimulate healing, boost collagen production and increase cell regeneration to give you firmer, clearer and younger-looking skin.
What To Expect During & After A Microneedling Skin Treatment
One of the best Microneedling benefits is that it’s non-surgical and only minimally-invasive – meaning no general anaesthesia, no cutting, slicing or traumatic healing period either.
It’s safe, effective and generally painless, with no long recovery period, so no need to take time off work to heal.
While puncturing your skin with needles might sound painful, it’s not as bad as it sounds – an anaesthetic is applied to your face and the holes are so tiny that the whole procedure is usually a comfortable experience.
After your treatment, you might notice some redness in your skin for the first 24-48 hours but this will quickly resolve.
Because the treatment harnesses your body’s own healing ability to smooth wrinkles, fade scars and rejuvenate dull-looking skin it takes a little time for the results to truly reach their full potential – the most dramatic results will be notable 4-6 weeks after your treatment once your body had had time to produce more collagen and new skin cells.
