What are the benefits of microneedling for the skin?

Microneedling, or commonly known as collagen induction therapy, is a fantastic cosmetic and medical treatment that has so many benefits for your skin. The process of micro-needling involves piercing the skin with tiny needles to treat a wide range of different skin conditions and improve the overall appearance and texture of your skin.

However, a lot of people don’t know about microneedling, or how it could potentially help them, they hear the word needle and get put off. Read on to find out more about what microneedling is and what the main benefits of the treatment are.

How Does Microneedling Work?

The treatment works by encouraging the skins to reproduce new collagen, that begins to deplete as we get older. We use a medical-grade device at Renewed Skin Aesthetics, which enables us to penetrate deeper into the layers of the skin to cause trauma, which in turn stimulates cell renewal and the skin begins to for self-repair, this is important to know when we treat acne scar patients. Your practitioner will gauge, through consultation, the depth that is used per treatment.

The reason that microneedling is so effective has to do with collagen. You may already have heard of collagen because it is a common ingredient in anti-ageing products. Collagen is used in these products because it helps to smooth out wrinkles and fight the signs of ageing. We all have natural collagen in our skin, and when you are young, it keeps your skin smooth and elastic. As you get older, your body produces less collagen, so your skin becomes less elastic, and this is why you develop wrinkles. Although anti-ageing products that contain collagen can be effective, microneedling gives far better results.

When the tiny incisions are made in your skin, your body produces extra collagen to heal those cuts. The increase in collagen can help to iron out wrinkles and make your skin appear much smoother, and it can also help to heal certain skin conditions as well.

What Are the Benefits of Microneedling?

A systematic review in 2018 found that micro-needling is a safe and effective way to rejuvenate skin and treat scars and wrinkles. Supported with clinical trials, the device we use is called SkinPen Precision, an award-winning device that is FDA cleared, holds a CE Mark Class IIa, Bsi + ISO certified, making it the world’s best device on the market, as a mechanical medical-grade device.

The American Academy of Dermatology, announced in a press release, patients can expect a reduction in the “appearance of scarring, fine lines and wrinkles large pores, and stretch marks.”

Microneedling treatments have a lot of great benefits, especially when compared with alternatives like laser treatments. Laser treatments require heat, which can damage the pigmentation in your skin and leave dark spots. Microneedling treatments are also about a quarter of the price of laser treatments.

As well as fighting the signs of ageing and making your skin more elastic, microneedling can also treat a range of advanced skin conditions including:

Adult acne is a complicated skin problem to manage. Although there are topical creams available, these are not always effective, and many people have deep scars that appear pitted or dense. Topical serums won’t get to the root cause of the scar tissue like a medical-grade microneedling device can, and you need to get to the dermis layers of the skin to support new tissue growth and production of collagen. Whilst microneedling triggers new collagen production to help heal these scars and reduce their appearance, its overall effectiveness as a safe treatment that delivers organic results is the key here.

Prolonged exposure to the sun can leave lasting damage like dark spots and pigmentation. Having a course of microneedling treatments will help to heal this damage and encourage new cell renewal that naturally produces new skin to grow in place of the dark spots, evening out your skin tone and texture.

People are often very self-conscious about scars and stretch marks, and although creams can help to reduce their appearance a little, microneedling is far more effective. By encouraging the skin to repair and new skin to grow over scars and stretch marks, it can make them fade.

Hair loss can be slightly challenging to treat, but research shows that microneedling is a great solution. Microneedling treatments on the scalp do not only encourage new collagen production; they can also improve the health of hair follicles, causing new hair growth. Mesotherapy that is medical grade and has a clinical trial to support its efficacy is also an essential element to support the process of microneedling on the scalp.


Microneedling is effective on both men and women, and it can treat skin issues in people with all skin types tones.
