Microneedling: Understanding How It Works to Restore Youthful Skin | SkinPerfected

Your skin, the largest organ of your body, faces numerous challenges and aging effects over time. Over the years, skin ages like the rest of our bodies. With microneedling treatments, however, we can restore youth to your complexion. 

At SkinPerfected in Naperville, IL, we perform premium microneedling treatments. We help you get rid of skin imperfections like acne scars, sunspots, and more. Stay with us as we delve into the world of microneedling treatments and reveal all you need to know to reclaim your radiant skin.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a skin treatment that creates tiny, controlled punctures on the surface of your skin. These small wound channels send signals to your body to produce more collagen, the fibrous substance that keeps your skin tight and youthful. 

During microneedling services, we utilize a device known as SkinPen®, which was the very first FDA-cleared microneedling device. SkinPen houses many tiny needles that create controlled skin punctures, about 1600 per second. Microneedling services are very tolerable, and we prioritize your comfort. 

The process begins with the application of a topical anesthetic to minimize any discomfort. We then use SkinPen to move across your skin in a precise, patterned motion, ensuring each area of concern is adequately treated. As the device glides over your skin, it creates tiny punctures that are almost microscopic. Although these punctures may induce minor redness or swelling immediately post-procedure, the microscopic nature of these wounds allows for rapid healing and revitalization of your skin.

Why You Need More Collagen and Elastin

Your skin is naturally quite flexible, but in your younger years, it has an easier time “snapping back” into its original shape. As your skin ages, it can lose this tightness due to lower collagen and elastin levels. The result is that your skin becomes lax, loose, and prone to wrinkles. 

Collagen and elastin work together to create a strong underlying structure for your skin. When you have high collagen and elastin levels, your skin remains tough against impact, pulling, and wrinkling. 

Microneedling treatments using SkinPen aim to enhance both collagen and elastin fibers in your skin. The microneedling benefits are plentiful; you get tighter skin, fewer wrinkles, and a smoother, more even complexion overall. These benefits are all thanks to microneedling’s collagen and elastin stimulation properties. 

Microneedling Results: Reduce Acne Scars, Wrinkles, and More

Microneedling benefits extend beyond simple anti-aging. Whether you’re getting microneedling for acne scars or smoother skin (or both), you’ll notice a positive difference. Microneedling treatments can address several common skin concerns, including acne scars, fine lines, and more. Here are the ways your microneedling results can improve your complexion. 

Fade Acne Scars

Microneedling for acne scars is one of our most requested skin services. Acne breakouts can leave behind stubborn scar tissue that is visible on the surface of your skin. No one wants reminders of the breakouts they’ve experienced in the past. Our microneedling services with SkinPen break down this scar tissue so that your acne scars can fade away for good. 

Reduce Wrinkles and Fine Lines 

Wrinkles and fine lines are hallmark signs of aging skin. As your skin ages, it loses essential collagen and elastin fibers that keep it tight and firm. The result is an increase in wrinkles, fine lines, and expression lines. Microneedling rejuvenates aged skin by bringing new collagen into the mix. By stimulating your body’s natural collagen production, microneedling treatments help fade wrinkles and fine lines over time. 

Decrease Redness and Blotchiness

Some people are born with genetics that makes their skin prone to red patches and blotchiness. With our microneedling services, we can reduce your red spots and restore a more even skin tone to your face. In some cases, microneedling services also address skin sensitivity in these patches. 

Make Pores Appear Smaller 

Minimizing pores is a goal for many people concerned with the appearance of their skin. Pore size is largely genetic, making it difficult to truly change the size and shape of your pores. With microneedling, however, we can reduce the appearance of your pores to give your skin a smoother, more even look. Along with minimizing pores, microneedling also softens skin texture and smooths your complexion. This means your skin will look less rough, bumpy, or poorly textured after these treatments. 

Tighten and Firm Facial Skin

You know that microneedling creates tiny punctures on your skin’s surface. This process allows your body to naturally tighten and firm your skin by generating new collagen and elastin fibers. In the areas of treatment, you may notice more lifted, firmer skin as a result. 

What Other Microneedling Treatments Are Available? 

In addition to SkinPen microneedling treatments, we also offer RF microneedling at our clinic in Naperville, IL. RF microneedling adds radiofrequency energy into the mix. Radiofrequency energy further stimulates collagen production by heating and contracting your skin fibers. This leads to a skin tightening effect, along with the other microneedling benefits you’ll receive. When paired together, both microneedling and radiofrequency energy can give you a smoother, clearer complexion again.

We can further customize your treatment using RF microneedling with exosomes. Exosomes are cell messengers that play a large role in the youthfulness and vitality of your skin. Exosomes increase cell turnover, which means they renew and refresh old dead cells. This cell turnover is key to anti-aging. Our innovative exosome additions are wonderful for replacing and recycling damaged, old skin cells. As a result, your skin feels youthful and rejuvenated afterward.

To ensure the best outcome for your skin, we conduct a comprehensive consultation prior to treatment. This consultation allows us to understand your skin type, assess any concerns or issues, and identify your skincare goals. Based on these factors, we then determine which microneedling treatment — whether it’s microneedling using SkinPen, RF microneedling, or microneedling with exosomes — is most suitable for your specific needs and desires.
