Microneedling: Top 10 Benefits

microneedling treatment

Microneedling is very popular in skin health management and it’s no doubt turning to be effective for a high number of skin concerns. The treatment involves rolling a wand or a pen  affixed with mini-needles which creates very small wounds. These injuries might be very small, only skin-deep, but the body reacts by sending in healing elements that boost skin strength, radiance, and health.

Microneedling can make your skin glow after just one treatment, and continues to improve the appearance of your skin for many months afterwards. 

Here are the top 10 Benefits of Microneedling

1. Decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

Signs of ageing are not a pleasant experience for anyone and with nowadays lifestyle, premature ageing is common. Fine lines and wrinkles are being tackled by the collagen and elastin production occurring in the micro-wounds produced by a session of microneedling. 

Collagen and elastin are agents in the skin that add structure and strength, bringing out a youthful look. The wound-healing process also stimulates your body to produce new skin cells, making fine lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles less apparent.

2. Sun Damage

Microneedling is capable of reducing the look of sun damage, especially hyperpigmentation and age spots. Microneedling and its ability to stimulate new collagen and skin cells will revitalise your appearance and even out your tone if you have a blotchy, brownish complexion, which is possibly the product of too many days of sunlight.

3. Scars

Microneedling stimulates collagen and elastin production, making it highly efficient in combating acne scars and any other scars on your face. However, keloid, or raised scars cannot be treated with microneedling. 

4. Anti-Ageing 

As you get older, fine lines and wrinkles are not the only issues encountered. Skin starts to loose its elasticity and it can look saggy. Ageing skin might look dull and without a glow. Microneedling can definitely help in this case.

Collagen buildup, which occurs in response to the small wounds, may strengthen the structure of the skin to combat sagging. Plus, you’ll feel a radiant, new glow just 24 hours after the microneedling treatment.

5. Shrinks Pores

While microneedling includes punching holes in your skin, it does not increase the size of your pores. In fact, it helps to make your pores appear much smaller. When the collagen around the pores is activated, the region around each pore decreases, making the pore itself almost disappear.

6. Improves the Efficacy of Skincare Products

Post-microneedling is the prime time for anti-aging solutions, moisturising, and other topical treatments that improve the health and appearance of the skin. The micro-holes are more proned to receive creams, serums and gels and to inject them further into the dermis than when used daily.

7. Stretch Marks Reduction

Microneedling works just about everywhere in the body. It may be helpful in reducing the development of stretch marks that occur during periods of accelerated growth, such as during pregnancy.

8. Helps Tackle Rosacea

The firmness and thickening of the skin with rosacea may be handled with microneedling. If you have this skin disorder, you will undergo a sudden breakdown in collagen. Microneedling promotes the formation of collagen to compensate for and replace this degradation, leaving the skin appear less bloated and irritated.

9. Acne Support

Microneedling can be used to further increase the potency of topical acne treatments due to increased delivery of topical applications. Regular microneedling sessions at The Dorchester Clinic may help clear the skin.

10. Hand & Neck Rejuvenation

Compared to facial rejuvenation, microneedling may enhance the look of the skin on your hands by triggering elastin and collagen development to eliminate wrinkles, ageing or sunspots.

The neck, along with the hands, is one of the first locations to display signs of ageing. Microneedling may tighten loose skin from around the neck while also decreasing the presence of sun-damaged skin on the neck.


As you can see microneedling is by far one of the most versatile advanced skin treatments available for anyone seeking to improve their appearance.
