How Does Microneedling Work?

Are you beginning to notice signs of aging popping up on your face, such as fine lines and wrinkles? If so, you may be wondering which sorts of creams or serums you should be using. However, these options rarely work to achieve the significant improvement patients desire. Instead, look into microneedling. This non-surgical treatment is a great option for combatting lines and wrinkles, scars, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation for a more youthful appearance.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling in Denver uses a device containing fine needles to create many micro-wounds in the topmost layer of the skin. These injuries stimulate the body’s wound healing process, increasing collagen and elastin production. These anti-aging building blocks can help to smooth out lines and wrinkles, and even out the skin, so you’ll look and feel younger in no time! Microneedling can also help your skincare products absorb into the skin better, for improved absorption. Some patients even begin to see results just two days after treatment!

Who Can Benefit?

Almost anyone can benefit from microneedling. Individuals who are unhappy with their complexion due to signs of aging, scarring, sun damage, and more are often good candidates for this treatment. However, be sure to tell your microneedling specialist if you have very sensitive skin, so we can make the procedure as comfortable as possible for you. If you have any questions about the treatment, don’t be afraid to speak up! We are here to answer your questions and make sure you are comfortable with the treatment you are receiving.
