6 Skin Flaws Remedied with Microneedling
Microneedling is an amazing treatment that harnesses your body’s ability to heal and helps serums absorb deeply to benefit your skin. It can correct a number of common problems.

Few people are completely satisfied with their skin’s appearance. Complexion, tone, scarring, dark spots, acne — the list of potentially bothersome skin issues could go on! 

At Cascade MedSpa and Laser Centre in Baxter, Minnesota, our highly trained staff, under the leadership of medical director, Kurtis Waters MD, understands the difference improving your skin’s appearance can make. 

When you feel great about how you look, you face the world with more confidence. And that can positively impact so many areas of your life.

One of our most popular treatments is microneedling. This amazing treatment uses your innate ability to heal to improve your skin. 

How microneedling works

Regardless of why you chose microneedling, most of the process is the same. First, we thoroughly clean your skin, then we apply a cream to numb it. After that, we use a special device that creates microscopic wounds.

These tiny wounds are just enough to trigger your body to begin healing and increase the production of collagen, elastin, and new skin cells. Depending on what you’re having done, we may add the application of serums or creams to address your specific issues. 

In addition to triggering a healing response, the microscopic wounds create channels that improve the penetration of serums and creams that can further boost the appearance of your skin.

Here are six common flaws that microneedling can help remedy: 

1. Dullness

As we age, our skin loses some of its luminance. This loss is partly due to a buildup of dead skin cells and other debris, damage from exposure, and the fact that the production of new cells simply slows with age. 

Microneedling can help you regain that glow. It spurs the production of new skin cells and helps to rejuvenate your complexion. 

2. Scars

One of the most common reasons people seek microneedling is to reduce the appearance of scarring from acne. The additional collagen you produce following a microneedling session helps to make your scars less noticeable.

Combining microneedling with a vitamin C serum can make your results even better. 

3. Hyperpigmentation

Call it hyperpigmentation, dark spots, sun spots, liver spots, or an uneven complexion, it’s all the same. Microneedling can help those older, darkened areas on your skin slough away and allow fresh, new, evenly colored skin cells to take their place. 

4. Sagging

Gravity, time, and the lack of collagen are all reasons parts of your face are droopier than they used to be. 

With microneedling, your body immediately begins to remodel the collagen you have. In the days that follow your visit, you produce new collagen to give your skin a smoother, plumper, tauter appearance. 

5. Sun damage

You’ve probably always known the sun is bad for your skin, and maybe you’ve even been careful to use sunscreen. Yet, you still probably have some sun damage to your skin. 

Whether it’s in the form of hyperpigmentation, new freckles, or simply a duller appearance, sun damage isn’t usually something we want for our skin. Microneedling can help erase the signs of your days in the sunshine. 

6. Fine lines and wrinkles

Fine lines and wrinkles can result from having a wonderfully expressive face, spending too much time in the sun, or simply time. That doesn’t mean you have to like them. Microneedling combined with deep moisturizing can help lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles naturally.
