5 Common Skin Flaws Corrected With Microneedling

As you get older, everything in your body starts to wear down, including your skin. Sun damage, stress, and other factors age your skin even more, which leaves you with a tired-looking complexion. 

But what if you were able to reverse some of the damage with a simple procedure? Microneedling may be the answer for rejuvenating your skin quickly.

At Chrysolite Aesthetics, our goal is to help you look as beautiful on the outside as you feel on the inside. At our facility, Rawan Abu-Zeitoon, MD, is an aesthetic specialist who helps you get the beautiful skin you’ve been dreaming of with procedures like microneedling.

How does microneedling work?

With microneedling, Dr. Abu-Zeitoon uses a specialized device called a SkinPen®, which has tiny needles that pierce your skin. This procedure is considered minimally invasive, because the  skin punctures aren’t very deep. In fact, they aren’t deep enough to draw blood.

But the punctures trigger your body’s production of the proteins elastin and collagen as your body tries to heal the micro-wounds. Collagen gives your skin its firmness and elastin tightens your skin.

The microneedling procedure is very safe, and the process doesn’t leave any lasting marks on your skin. You might notice a difference after just one round of microneedling, but may need subsequent treatments to get the optimal effect.

Skin problems microneedling corrects

So how does this procedure help your skin? Although wrinkles are the most obvious skin flaws that microneedling is able to help, there are many other flaws that the procedure can fix. Here are five of the most common skin problems corrected with microneedling:

Acne scars

If you’ve ever suffered from acne, you know the toll it takes on your face over time. Between scars and marks left by this condition, you might want to hide your face for good. Microneedling can help by healing your skin from the inside out.

Stretch marks

Stretch marks occur when your skin stretches too quickly, leaving red unsightly marks on your body. They’re most common on your belly, thighs, and hips, but can really happen anywhere. Microneedling can reduce the appearance of these marks. 

Large pores

Your pores are usually small enough that they aren’t noticeable, unless you have large pores. Large pores aren’t just cosmetically unappealing; they can also attract bacteria.

Dark spots

Also known as hyperpigmentation, dark spots can make you self-conscious. Microneedling reduces the appearance of these spots by introducing elastin and collagen into the channels that the needles create.

Sun damage

Years of sun exposure takes its toll on your skin. UV rays from the sun leave your skin with spots and wrinkles, so microneedling helps by healing your skin through the production of collagen and elastin.

Seeing the results

You may be able to see some results almost immediately after the procedure, but because your skin takes longer than a few days to repair itself, you won’t see full results for about six weeks or so. The amount of time is dependent on how severe your skin condition is.

If you’re ready to boost your appearance with microneedling, contact our Houston, Texas, office today for a consultation.
