How does microneedling improve the skin’s texture and tone?

At Resplendent Day Spa of Long Beach, California, our team of professionals believes in providing a wide range of cosmetic treatments to help patients look and feel their best. Many facial treatments help turn back the hands of time and smooth away lines and wrinkles that have developed over the years. Some patients seek a treatment that can improve skin texture and tone, treating hyperpigmentation, old acne scars, and other issues. For these patients, we may recommend a treatment known as microneedling, which can improve the skin’s health and appearance in a single treatment!

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a skin treatment technique that uses tiny needles to create extremely small punctures in the skin. These microscopic injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing response, increasing elastin and collagen production. As a result, skin becomes smoother, tighter, firmer, and more rejuvenated.

Microneedling has become increasingly popular due to its effectiveness and minimal recovery time. It can improve various skin concerns such as:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Hyperpigmentation and sun damage
  • Uneven skin texture and tone
  • Large pores

How exactly does microneedling work?

During the microneedling procedure, CytoPen®, a unique device with multiple tiny needles is gently rolled over the skin. The depth of needle penetration can be adjusted according to the patient’s specific needs. As the needles create microchannels, the body responds by producing more stores of collagen and elastin to heal the skin. This process also allows for better absorption of topical skincare products, making them more effective.

Where can I have microneedling done?

Microneedling can be performed on various areas of the face, including:

  • Forehead
  • Cheeks
  • Nose
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Under-eye area
