Anti-aging cosmetics or treatments have long been coveted by people to maintain their skin’s youthfulness and glow. Although there are thousands of such products available in the market, only a few products work well and produce good results. During recent times, microneedling is deemed to be an effective anti-aging treatment.


Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure in which the skin is punctured with tiny microneedles. It works by creating micro-wounds on the skin, which promote bloodflow and collagen production during the process of healing. Dermatologists employ microneedling as a cosmetic technique to promote collagen creation by inducing a need for the natural healing reaction to occur. The utilization of tiny needles makes it a minimally-invasive technique.

Stretch marks, wrinkles, and acne scars can all be made to look less noticeable by the technique. Although most individuals receive microneedling for aesthetic reasons, it can also be beneficial for some medical issues.

Increased Collagen Production

When the skin receives micro-punctures from small needles, the body sends fibroblasts to the little wounds to treat them. Everywhere the needles go, more controlled micro-wounds are created and more collagen will be produced.

This is achieved by the skin being essentially deceived into believing it has been injured. This not only enhances the texture of the skin, but also makes it thicker and healthier. Additionally, it promotes cell turnover and increases elastin synthesis.

Even Skin Tone

The human skin does not appreciate too much exposure to the sun. Overexposure to the sun can also result in sun spots on the hands and face. These are regions of hyperpigmentation that occur as a result of collagen breakdown. The hyperpigmented skin is broken up by microneedling. This also increases cell turnover, resulting in a more even complexion.

Scar Treatment

During the past few decades, the standard treatment for persons with scars was laser therapy. While both techniques (laser surgery and microneedling) have shown to be equally effective in scar treatment, microneedling was reported to be less painful, needs less recovery time, and does not exhibit any adverse effects.

Although they shouldn’t, facial scars from acne tend to affect a person’s self confidence. Many people struggle well into their adulthood from acne scars from their teenage years. The collagen produced by microneedling accomplishes filling in the scars and removing the scarred tissue.

Increased Effectiveness of Cosmetics

Topically applied substances—like serums and creams—have been found to permeate the skin more effectively after microneedling. In contrast to the usually-congested pores, the thousands of small punctures made on the skin by microneedles allows for better absorption of topical substances. These tiny pores function as microscopic channels that assist in delivering the creams to the proper targeted areas deep within the skin.

Removing dead skin cells allows for greater product absorption, too. Exfoliating can also help in this respect but is less effective.

Aids Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy

A type of regenerative medicine called platelet-rich plasma (PRP) focuses and channels the healing elements in your blood. These include components such as platelets and specific proteins. Microneedling increases the efficiency of PRP by allowing more surface area to come in contact with.The microneedling experts at Wailana Daily Spa strive to help you achieve that beautiful, glowy skin you’ve always wanted.
