At one point or another, most of us look at our face in the mirror and see things we’d like to change. For some, it’s enlarged pores. For others, it’s pigmentation and sunspots caused by years of excessive sun exposure. At Capitis Medical & Aesthetics, we believe everyone should love what they see in the mirror. That’s why we are proud to offer microneedling.

1. It’s Not Limited to the Face

One of the most surprising benefits of microneedling is it isn’t exclusive to the face. In fact, it can be performed on virtually any area of skin that needs repair. For example, it is often used on different areas of the body to address stretch marks and acne scars.

2. It Shrinks Your Pores

This benefit of microneedling may seem a little counterintuitive at first. The truth is, thanks to the way the treatment works, the collagen in and around your pores is stimulated. This causes them to plump up and appear drastically smaller.

3. It Makes Your Products Work Better

Do you know what’s worse than spending tons of money on skincare products? Spending tons of money on skincare products that aren’t working. Few people know that only four to eight percent of face creams and serums penetrate the skin. This is because most people have clogged pores. Even though microneedling makes your pores appear smaller, it also greatly enhances your skin’s ability to absorb products.

Consider for a minute that microneedling creates thousands of microscopic channels in the top layer of your skin, and it starts to make sense. Whether you moisturize your face every night or use a topical rosacea medication, you will notice after your microneedling treatment that your skincare products and medications work better than they did before.

4. Microneedling Can Make You Look Younger

According to one study conducted in 2015, microneedling is an effective way to achieve scar remodeling and skin rejuvenation. Since the treatment stimulates collagen growth, it helps you to appear younger. That’s because as we age, our bodies produce collagen at a reduced rate, causing wrinkles, fine lines and other blemishes.

5. Microneedling Reverses Sun Damage

Research has shown that this treatment is effective for the reversal of sun damage and discoloration, including brown, blotchy pigmentation.
