What is Microneedling and Why Should You Consider It?

Microneedling has become super popular in the cosmetics and skincare industry and it’s easy to see why: it really does improve the look and feel of your skin. The procedure creates tiny puncture wounds using a device covered in mini-needles. Even though these injuries are superficial, your body releases healing elements that improve the skin’s texture, shine, and vitality.

In this blog, we go into detail about this treatment and why you should consider getting it from our health and wellness center in Henderson.

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment used to stimulate collagen production and renew the skin. Each treatment can repair as much as a year’s worth of collagen loss while simultaneously enhancing the skin’s look, which is why it is often called “Collagen Induction Therapy” (CIT).

How does microneedling work?

Microneedling is a procedure in which hundreds of tiny needles are used to puncture the skin in a sterile manner, creating microchannels. Doing this kickstarts your body’s natural wound healing system, which in turn encourages it to produce more collagen and elastin. This is why microneedling is the perfect treatment for internal and external rejuvenation of the skin.

The healing process in a microneedling session involves three stages:


Our professionals use a medical-grade microneedling device to create tiny punctures in your skin, which activates your immune system. This increases blood circulation and flow, flushing out impurities and cleaning the skin’s deeper layers. Doing this initiates the process of tissue regeneration.


When a wound is healing, granulation cells help produce new connective tissue and blood vessels. This serves as a foundation for new tissue formation.


The final stage, remodeling, involves new skin tissue formation and a vascular supply that brings about new, younger skin.

Since it encourages the production of collagen and elastin, microneedling can be used to diminish the look of scars, fine lines, enlarged pores, and dull skin. Your skin will look and feel more supple, radiant, and youthful as a result.

Why should you consider microneedling?

You’ll notice a difference in your skin’s look after only one session of microneedling, and it will continue to improve for months to come. If you’re still on the fence about whether or not to undergo this therapy, consider the following:

Clears out wrinkles and frown lines

Fine lines and wrinkles can add years to your appearance but microneedling can help you prevent that from happening. Since this treatment uses controlled injury to stimulate the body’s natural collagen and elastin production, it helps you regain your natural, youthful glow.

Proteins like collagen and elastin give your skin its shape and elasticity which is why your skin looks radiant and flawless after one session. Wrinkles, crow’s feet, and fine lines all fade away thanks to your body’s natural wound-healing processes.

Repairs sun damage

Microneedling targets hyperpigmentation and age spots—two common signs of sun damage. If your skin tone has become uneven and patchy from too sun exposure, microneedling can help you regain a more youthful appearance. It evens out your skin tone and texture by stimulating collagen and skin cells.

Makes topical products more efficient

The ideal time to apply topical therapies that improve the skin’s health and look (such as anti-aging treatments, moisturizers, etc.) is right after a microneedling treatment. Moisturizers, serums, and gels will absorb deeper into your skin thanks to the micro-holes in your skin. The results are much better than you would achieve with ordinary application.

Prevents premature aging and sagging skin

Wrinkles and skin discoloration aren’t the only telltale signs of aging. Skin loses its elasticity and becomes saggy with age. The skin’s youthful radiance also fades over time. Microneedling takes care of all these concerns.

The minor injuries in this procedure strengthen the skin’s structure and make it more resistant to sagging. In addition, after just 24 hours, your skin will look and feel revitalized and fresh.

Shrinks enlarged pores

Microneedling does not enlarge pores. In fact, it makes your pores look far less noticeable. Stimulating the collagen surrounding your pores causes the space around them to puff up, thereby concealing your pores.
