Microneedling is an effective skin treatment that has become increasingly popular in the beauty industry. Most people may recognize it as the procedure that helps improve the look and feel of patients’ skin by puncturing its surface with multiple fine needles. And while this treatment option is mostly chosen by patients who simply want healthier-looking skin, the truth is that microneedling can address a multitude of skin conditions!
Pro Tip: Do not try microneedling without a professional! Read more about the dangers of at-home microneedling here.
Hyperpigmentation is an extremely common skin condition, as it is typically caused by sun exposure. No matter how cautious patients are about being in the sun and applying sunscreen, they may still experience brown spots or patches on their skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Hyperpigmentation may also form because of damage to the skin, medication or genetics.
While pigment on the skin is typically harmless, patients may become self-conscious or tired of covering spots with makeup. Luckily, microneedling serves as the perfect hyperpigmentation treatment! After a procedure, your skin’s natural repair system is triggered to heal the microchannels created by the needles. This healing process results in natural skin rejuvenation, healing conditions as deep as hyperpigmentation. Over time (and with potentially more treatment sessions depending on the severity of your condition), your skin will be clear of brown spots for a beautiful, glowing appearance.
Enlarged Pores Treatment
Like hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores can be caused by genetics. Some patients are simply born with large pores on the skin, while others may experience them later in life if their skin produces a lot of oil. Excess oil that sits on the skin can cause pores to appear larger than normal, and over time, this oil can mix with dirt or dead skin and cause a clog. There are several products that claim to minimize pore size—and while they may help them shrink temporarily, face masks or serums are not permanent solutions.
By choosing skin deep rejuvenation with microneedling, you are also opting for an effective enlarged pores treatment. Collagen regeneration is triggered with a procedure, so the skin can be rebuilt from the ground up! This means that large pores, scars and any other deep textural concerns can be improved with microneedling treatments.
