There are many ways that we prepare ourselves for summer. Primarily, we look at our physical shape and do what we feel we must to foster the utmost confidence in a physique that will be more exposed in shorts and bathing suits. But we should remember to consider our skin and the exposure that it, too, will get during the warm-weather months. Whether it is stretch marks on your abdomen, legs, or arms, or fine lines, wrinkles, and brown spots on your face, microneedling is a treatment that can give you a summer glow now.
What is Microneedling
This skin rejuvenating treatment may still seem relatively new, though it’s been around for a few years. Some people, due to the use of PRP with microneedling, think of this minimally invasive procedure as a “Vampire Facial.” What microneedling does is create microscopic injuries using a score of tiny needles. These micro-injuries are so tiny that they begin to heal immediately, while you are still in the office! Beneath the surface, however, the body is already at work repairing these wounds by proliferating collagen and elastin.
As stores of these vital substances are improved, the skin looks more and more refreshed. In the weeks following treatment, patients notice:
- Smoother texture
- More firmness in the skin
- Improved tightness
- Diminished lines, scars, or stretch marks
- Lightening of dark spots
- Refinement of pores
Microneedling is a Great Summertime Treatment
Men and women are in need of consistency in terms of anti-aging skin care. As such, they are also in need of options. Certain types of treatments, such as chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing, can create photosensitivity in healthy, new skin cells. This can translate into easy burning and further damage due to the absorption of UV light. Microneedling does not cause the skin to become more sensitive to light, which makes it an excellent summertime skin-rejuvenating procedure.
