What Are the Benefits of Microneedling?

What if you could improve the appearance of an unsightly scar by up to 60%? A minimally invasive procedure is now available to do just that, and all it requires is a short visit to your doctor. 

Richard J. Dittrich, DO, FACOG, and his medically trained staff at Professional Aesthetics & Wellness Center offer cosmetic therapies to help you achieve younger-looking skin. One of the treatments available is microneedling. 

Curious how this revolutionary treatment can help you? Keep reading to find out what microneedling is and how it can benefit your skin. 

What is microneedling? 

Microneedling involves inserting very fine, short needles into the skin. Imagine pinpricks that are only surface-level deep. 

During your treatment, Dr. Dittrich carefully glides the dermaroller over your skin. There are dozens of tiny needles on the roller that puncture the skin with each pass. 

The micro-punctures trigger a healing response in your skin cells. After the procedure, as your skin heals, you will notice that the new skin is visibly firmer and younger looking. 

The benefits of microneedling 

The main benefit that patients experience from microneedling is the improved appearance and texture of their skin. But it can also stimulate hair growth and reduce cellulite. 

Improved skin texture and appearance 

Patients usually see a 40-50% improvement in their overall skin texture. This is due to the increase in collagen production in the skin. Collagen helps even out your skin to give it that “bounce-back” resilience. 

As a result, you will also see improvement in these conditions: 

You will notice that the overall radiance of your skin will be significantly improved. An additional side benefit is that it allows for deeper penetration of topical products. So combining it with your topical treatment may make the topical more effective. 

Hair growth 

If you suffer from hair loss, then microneedling may help you stimulate new hair growth. The increased blood flow can nourish hair follicles that were once dormant. This will motivate them to begin production of new hair. 

Reduced cellulite 

Because microneedling helps increase collagen production and tighten skin, you could see improvement of the appearance of cellulite. Over the course of treatment, the skin will tighten, and the increased collagen will even out the surface of the skin. 

Differences between at-home and in-office treatments 

While there are many benefits to having microneedling done, there is a distinct difference between doing the procedure at home and in our office. When you visit an experienced and knowledgeable medical professional such as Dr. Dittrich, you receive high-quality treatment. 

Microneedling devices that are designed for home use have blunter needles that do not penetrate the skin as deeply. You won’t experience the same level of results. 

You also need to be careful when cleaning these devices. They are harder to clean and therefore pose a greater risk of injury and infection.

Dr. Dittrich can assess your skin and create a treatment plan tailored to your skin. With the use of microneedling and other possible treatments, you can have the skin you’ve always dreamed of.
