5 Reasons Microneedling Is So Beneficial for Your Skin

Time can do a number on your skin, but that doesn’t mean you’re stuck with imperfections. If you have unwanted blemishes, wrinkles, or scars, microneedling offers many benefits for your skin. This nonsurgical technique works to remodel your skin and restore a more youthful, even complexion.

At Skin and Body Curvatures, we offer a variety of nonsurgical cosmetic solutions to help our clients in St. Petersburg, Florida, realize the best version of themselves. As part of our powerful anti-aging arsenal, we offer microneedling with the option of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. Here are five reasons why you should consider microneedling to breathe new life into your tired skin.

1. Microneedling restores collagen

The natural loss of collagen is one of the biggest culprits behind aging skin. This protein gives your skin its structural support, and its loss is barely noticeable at first — approximately 1% a year after you turn 20. However, as the years go by, this gradual decline steadily adds up and, for women, accelerates through menopause.

One of the first benefits of microneedling is that the treatment triggers collagen production. As the small, sterile needles pass over the surface of your skin, they create a bunch of tiny microchannels. Your body responds to these “injuries” with a surge of collagen production, which is your body’s way of building up areas of perceived weaknesses.

2. Microneedling minimizes skin damage

When you have acne scars, blemishes, or age spots mottling the once-smooth surface of your skin, microneedling can help. This procedure works by breaking apart damaged tissue, allowing new and healthy tissue to take its place. This remodeling process helps clear away the past, leaving you with a fresh canvas moving forward.

3. You can boost microneedling benefits with PRP

Traditional microneedling relies on tiny needles alone. With our option to add PRP, we can enhance your results by using growth factors in your blood to accelerate the healing process. 

Before your microneedling facial, we draw a sample of your blood and concentrate these healing agents into a powerful solution — platelet-rich plasma. After your microneedling treatment, we either inject your PRP or massage it into your skin topically to accelerate cell renewal at the site. 

4. Microneedling provides results fast, without surgery

If you dream of getting the results of a face-lift but want to avoid risky surgeries and a lengthy recovery, microneedling delivers amazing results. This beneficial anti-aging treatment is minimally invasive and comes with very little downtime.

For the best results, we often recommend a series of microneedling treatments spaced several weeks apart. This approach gives your skin time to respond to each treatment.

5. Microneedling is safe for your whole body

It’s easy to assume that microneedling is only for your face, but we’ve had great success helping our clients with stretch marks and sagging neck skin too. Because the technology is minimally invasive, we can use it to address problems almost anywhere on your body.
