See why Microneedling Has Gained Such Popularity with Celebrities

Celebrities are usually the first ones to jump on the bandwagon when it comes to new aesthetic treatments that claim to take years off their appearance. After all, their careers demand them to look their best and seem to defy the effects of aging to which the rest of us must succumb. Celebrities also tend to have large, disposable incomes, so they can afford to try new products and procedures, even if those products and procedures don’t deliver the promised results.

Microneedling is different.

Microneedling is a proven, non-surgical aesthetic treatment that consistently delivers anti-aging benefits, and you don’t need a celebrity’s income or status to get an appointment. Here at Plateroti Dermatology, in Templeton, California, board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Carmelo Plateroti and his skilled medical aesthetics team offer microneedling for men and women who want to treat a variety of skin imperfections, rejuvenate dull skin, and make wrinkles disappear.

It’s not just a craze — microneedling helps increase collagen production

If you’ve heard about microneedling but aren’t sure how you can benefit, consider new collagen production as one of the biggest reasons celebrities like Jennifer Aniston and Kim Kardashian love this non-surgical treatment. As you get older, your skin decreases its collagen and elastin production by 1% each year after you turn 20.

That may not seem like much, but year after year, your skin becomes a little less elastic than it was back in your college days. Combine this collagen loss with the damaging effects of the sun, and you could have lines and wrinkles before you turn 30.

Microneedling stimulates your skin to produce new collagen. In fact, the treatment is also known as collagen induction therapy. Microneedling is an easy, painless procedure that uses tiny needles to create puncture wounds in the surface of your skin.

As your provider moves the handheld, automated microneedling device across your skin, the needles create punctures in your skin that are so tiny, they’re barely visible to the naked eye. Your skin responds by producing new collagen and elastin cells to heal the punctures over the weeks following your treatment session.

As a result, your skin rejuvenates itself from the inside. Wrinkles appear less noticeable, dull skin looks refreshed, and blemishes fade into the background. Best of all, the treatment is not only easy, it’s painless.

Microneedling naturally treats the signs of aging and a variety of skin imperfections

You may not be ready for Botox® or dermal fillers, simply because you don’t want to inject foreign substances into your body. Microneedling is a natural alternative. Like Botox and dermal injections, microneedling addresses the major signs of aging, but it also has the added benefit of improving your skin’s surface imperfections, including:

Microneedling improves the appearance of these skin concerns as your body generates newer, healthier, collagen-rich cells from your skin’s deep layers and shedding the older ones. As your skin continues to replenish itself, your face appears firmer, smoother, and more evenly pigmented.

It’s not just for your face, either. Your doctor can use microneedling on your neck, decolletage, arms, or just about anywhere you want to rejuvenate your skin’s health naturally.

Microneedling helps your skin absorb nutrients

Because the microneedling process creates tiny puncture wounds in the surface of your skin, it’s an ideal treatment to pair with platelet-rich plasma (PRP). PRP contains vital nutrients for your skin, as does hyaluronic acid, which we also offer here at Plateroti Dermatology. Topically applied after microneedling, your skin readily absorbs the PRP or hyaluronic acid — both of which have hydrating and anti-aging benefits of their own. You may remember that famous social media photo of Kim Kardashian immediately after her microneedling and PRP session. She looked great, and so will you.

Celebrities can’t afford downtime, and neither can you

Famous or not, you have a busy schedule and can’t afford extensive downtime. Microneedling comes with little or no downtime at all, so you’re free to resume your daily routine following your appointment. Typically, a microneedling session for your face takes just 30 minutes. Celebrities often refer to microneedling as a non-surgical facelift. You, too, can reap the benefits of microneedling without the pain, risks, or recovery that come with cosmetic surgeries.

With so many benefits and so little inconvenience, microneedling is an ideal anti-aging solution for anyone who wants to look more youthful and feel more confident in their own skin.
