The popularity of most cosmetic treatments tends to ebb and flow, largely thanks to social media, celebrity mentions and other pop culture references. Microneedling is one popular skin treatment that seems to be having a moment of particularly high interest among many age groups.
So what makes it so popular and what results can you expect from microneedling? Take a look at some of the most frequently asked questions about this trending skin treatment.
What Makes Microneedling So Popular?
Perhaps one of the draws of microneedling is that it works with your skin’s natural ability to self-heal and self-rejuvenate to provide highly effective results with little to no downtime. Couple microneedling’s effectiveness with its short 20- to 30-minute treatment time, and you have a recipe for a sought-after skin treatment that spans across many age groups.
Microneedling can treat a variety of skin problems, including acne scars, enlarged pores and wrinkles. Microneedling can also be paired with other nonsurgical skin treatments, offering even more customized and comprehensive results.
What Does Microneedling Actually Do?
Microneedling works by creating tiny “microchannels” within your skin, using a small, handheld device. This process stimulates your skin’s natural healing process, spurring cell renewal and collagen growth.
There are several types of microneedling, ranging from the more traditional SkinPen® to combined treatments like Vivace® RF microneedling, which pairs radiofrequency energy with microneedling technology.
