Microneedling Facial: What Is It, How It Works & The Benefits
If you have been keeping up with beauty trends, you would have surely heard of microneedling facial, also known as MTS facial. While it involves the use of needles and can sound intimidating, its appeal is undisputedly the benefits that your skin will thank you for years to come.
Wondering if this facial treatment is right for you? Keep reading to find out more about microneedling facial, from how it is done to the skin benefits you will reap.
What is microneedling facial?
Just like its name suggests, microneedling facial is a treatment that uses fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the epidermis (top layer of the skin).
Although it sounds like a big procedure, this facial treatment is actually minimally invasive, almost painless and very effective.
How does a microneedling facial work?
The small wounds as a result of the microneedling facial then stimulate your body to produce more collagen and elastin – two things that help to heal a damaged skin barrier and achieve a more youthful appearance.
What are the benefits of a microneedling facial?
1. Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
A microneedling facial’s biggest appeal is its ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by creating small wounds that stimulate collagen and elastin production. Collagen plays a huge role in strengthening while elastin provides elasticity for more youthful-looking skin.
2. Helps to improve acne scars
Microneedling facial is also well-loved by those who suffer from acne scarring, as the tiny needles penetrate the epidermis to induce an increase in collagen production. The collagen then smoothens the skin to reduce the depth of depressed acne scars. When compared to laser treatments, microneedling facial works better for all skin types and tones since those with darker skin may experience discolouration when it comes to lasers.
3. Has anti-ageing properties
Did you know that fine lines and wrinkles are not the only signs of ageing? Uneven skin tones and age spots are also part of skin ageing – while it can be disheartening to see your youth slipping away, a microneedling facial will be able to help you regain confidence. Although it cannot entirely prevent skin ageing, it can slow down the process and improve the overall look of your skin by increasing collagen production.
4. Enhances the effectiveness of skincare products
We all understand the struggle of spending a bomb on skincare products but not seeing any visible results at the end of the day. But during the microneedling facial treatment, the esthetician will apply a serum targeted at your specific skin concerns and the pricking will aid in the absorption of the product into your skin. This enhances the effectiveness of the product, allowing you to see and feel a bigger difference in your skin’s appearance. A common product used by various beauty centres in Singapore is the Rejuran Skin Booster.
5. Results in a shorter downtime
Compared to laser treatments that can sometimes cause larger wounds and more redness, a microneedling facial results in a shorter downtime so you can return to your daily routine immediately and with ease. You will only need to take note to avoid harsh skincare ingredients like retinol and keep your skin hydrated with moisturisers.
