When our licensed and experienced aestheticians at Laser Lights recommend a treatment called microneedling to treat a patient’s fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, or surgical scars, just that word “needle” is enough to make many people run for the hills. But in truth, this unique procedure is not at all what most patients fear it to be. Microneedling uses tiny, ultrafine needles (so small that they often don’t even draw blood) to help your body produce more collagen—a natural protein that makes your skin smoother and firmer.
If you enjoy following the world of beauty and cosmetic medicine, you’ve probably heard of microneedling already, because it’s been all over skin care websites and magazines in recent years. But to give you a more in-depth understanding of this popular treatment, we’ve put together an infographic with all the details you need to know about microneedling.
Especially for men and women with darker skin who have had to be extremely cautious with laser treatments because of the risk of discoloration, microneedling opens the door to enjoy exciting results with a minimally invasive, quick, convenient procedure. If you want to find out whether you’re a candidate for microneedling (or if you have cosmetic concerns that can be addressed with any of our dozens of other treatments, like non-surgical fat reduction or laser tattoo removal), schedule a free consultation at Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center.
