Does Microneedling Tighten Your Skin?
As we age our body begins to lose volume, and our skin becomes loose and elastic. This naturally happens as the building blocks of collagen proteins that help keep our cells strong and connected begins to degrade and become weaker over time. As a result, gravity tends to have more influence on your skin cells, and over time this creates droopiness, wrinkles, and bands on your skin. This is the problem that microneedling and Dermapen aims to solve — and many have said that we do that job very well.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling, also referred to as collagen induction therapy, involves using super-fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of the skin. These wounds are called micro-injuries, and the micro-injuries that you create with microneedling stimulate the body’s innate wound-healing processes.

How Does Microneedling With Dermapen Tighten Skin?
During the skin’s healing process, your body produces fresh collagen to replace the damaged collagen, which rejuvenates your skin by increasing your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. This results in an overall improvement in the texture and tightness of your skin by “filling in the lines,” and removing the wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks that can keep you looking young as you age.
How Many Microneedling Sessions Does It Take To See Tightened Skin?
The number of treatments required varies based on two things, the first being the results you want to achieve, and the second being which part of the body treatment is being performed on. Just a few sessions of microneedling will noticeably reduce fine lines, crow’s feet, and deep wrinkles on the forehead. For most wrinkles or stretch marks on the body, depending on the severity, you may need 4 to 8 microneedling treatments to achieve optimal skin-tightening results.
Microneedling Dark Spots
Hyperpigmentation can be caused by hormonal changes, exposure to the sun, aging or medication. Dark spots stand out and make a person feel self-conscious all the time. There are ways in which these dark spots can be made to fade with time and even disappear completely. Micro needling is the most effective of all the procedures used to treat pigmentation. How can microneedling help in treating dark spots?
Hyperpigmentation occurs due to uneven production of melanin throughout the layer of skin. Wherever melanin is produced in excess, dark spots appear. This irregularity in the generation of melanin can be caused by acne, cuts, sunburn, etc. These dark spots are very stubborn and become more pronounced with time instead of fading away naturally. The reason behind this is that the skin stops producing new cells as a person ages. The old cells accumulate over time and give the skin a very dull appearance.
This is where micro needling comes in to give your skin the perfect boost to restart its growth process. Micro needling involves the use of a pen which contains several tiny needles which are aligned equidistantly. The pen is used to inject these needles at different spots to create micro channels. This is called the collagen induction therapy because the small injuries made to the skin cause surface bleeding which compels the body to start its healing process. The old layer of skin starts becoming dry and in a week or so peels off. Over a period of 10 to 14 days, new collagen is formed to cover up the injuries. This new layer of skin is free from any kind of spots or marks.
Dark spots of both the epidermis and the dermis layers of the skin can be reduced with the help of micro needling. The micro needling procedure requires 4 to 6 sessions with a gap of 4 to 8 weeks between each session. The skin starts responding after the first session itself and at the end of the whole procedure, you get rejuvenated, firm and spot-free skin.
Why Go For Microneedling?
Microneedling for dark spots is the best treatment method because it is chemical-free and induces the body to naturally heal itself. There are no side effects and the results last for a long time. It is effective for all skin types and offers a no fail dark spot treatment.
