Microneedling is a popular minimally invasive cosmetic treatment for acne, aging skin, pigmentation issues, and more. The process stimulates collagen and elastin production as your skin heals. At Park Meadows Aesthetics, we love using this service to give our patients a youthful glow. However, the benefits go beyond giving you a smoother, firmer complexion. These other areas could benefit from microneedling too.
Fade Stretch Marks With Microneedling
The skin-smoothing effects of this treatment aren’t limited to your face. If you have stretch marks, often caused by rapid skin stretching during puberty, pregnancy, or weight gain, microneedling might be able to fade them significantly. Microneedling is an effective treatment for minimizing scarring, and stretch marks are just another scar. The increased collagen and elastin production can help your skin remodel, making the striations less visible.
In a 2020 study, 25 adults with stretch marks on the trunk and extremities were treated using a microneedling device. The appearance of all stretch marks improved by at least 50% after an average of 1.8 treatments. It’s also a safe and effective treatment for all skin tones as opposed to laser therapies which carry the risk of hyperpigmentation if you have a darker or olive complexion.
Microneedling for Hair Loss
Microneedling is an increasingly popular treatment for hair thinning. A 2021 study found microneedling increased total hair count more than the application of topical minoxidil, making it a beneficial method in combination with other hair loss treatments.
Microneedling leaves tiny pinprick punctures in the skin, promoting collagen and elastin production and increasing topical medication absorption. Another study found microneedling in combination with triamcinolone acetonide application was an effective treatment for the autoimmune disease alopecia areata, which can cause quarter-sized clumps of hair to shed.
