What You Need To Know About Microneedling

Microneedling in Mt Juliet TN

With innovative solutions consistently emerging from the cosmetic industry, it can be difficult to keep track of what works for the masses, what’s simply “in vogue,” and what works for your unique needs as a patient. Here’s a high-level breakdown of one of the most popular anti-aging treatments, microneedling. 


What is microneedling?

Microneedling, as the name suggests, is a skin treatment procedure in which small needles are inserted shallowly into the skin. Also known as the vampire facial, microneedling stimulates the skin to produce collagen, a protein that decreases fine lines and increases the elasticity of skin. 

 Have you ever noticed what skin feels like after a scrape heals? Soft and smooth. The body, previously protected by a scab, generates new skin to cover the injured area to protect the open wound. In the same way, the body interprets microneedling as tiny “injuries,” creating a signal for the body to increase  blood flow to the affected areas to heal the injuries. The end result: younger, more even, firmer-looking skin.  


Microneedling results

Microneedling yields both long and short-term results. In the first couple of weeks following the treatment, the skin’s inflamed state makes the skin regenerate tissue to look fuller, more even, less wrinkled, and overall  more radiant. Patients can also reap the benefits of microneedling long-term. In fact, a study found that patients who underwent microneedling treatments experienced a 400% increase in collagen production in the months following the treatment.

Microneedling can also have restorative effects on scars and cellulite and is commonly used to treat both skin conditions. Again, the small injuries to the epidermis, the top layer of the skin, trigger rejuvenation.


When to get a microneedling treatment

Microneedling, like any dermatological or medical treatment, should take each unique patient into consideration. Not all bodies are the same, which means that not everyone reacts to treatments the same way. That’s what Inspire Medical and Wellness is here for.
