What Is Microneedling and Why Are So Many Celebrities Raving About It?

Find out why microneedling is all the rage

Sometimes you can’t believe all the hype when it comes to the buzz surrounding celebrities and their latest (sometimes odd) health regimens and cosmetic practices. But where nonsurgical microneedling treatments are concerned, it’s absolutely true that this simple aesthetic procedure offers a long list of anti-aging benefits.

Dr. David Zweiback, an expert in internal medicine and medical dermatology in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania, explains what microneedling is and why so many celebrities are raving about it.

Microneedling helps your body produce new collagen

This could be one of the reasons celebrities such as the Kardashians, Jennifer Aniston, and Brad Pitt turn to microneedling to keep themselves looking years younger than their actual ages. The treatments use fine needles to make tiny pinpricks in the surface of your skin. This may sound like a strange celebrity trend, but there is real science behind the procedure.

As each tiny needle creates a micro-wound in your skin, it stimulates your body’s natural healing response. This means your skin produces new cells, new collagen and elastin, and new tissues to rejuvenate your skin from beneath the surface. The new collagen and elastin fibers become the foundation for firmer skin tone and more even skin texture.

In the days that follow your microneedling procedure, your skin continues to heal itself and renew the appearance of sun-damaged skin, acne scars, and the lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin that comes with age. As a benefit of microneedling treatments, you look like the younger “celebrity” version of yourself without spending a fortune or undergoing a surgical face-lift that leaves you out of commission for weeks while you recover.

Microneedling offers big benefits with little inconvenience

Perhaps celebrities love microneedling as much for the anti-aging benefits as they do for the ease of the treatment itself. Simply put, microneedling is:

The procedure itself takes less than an hour out of your busy schedule, which is yet another reason celebrities like it so much. It’s a big benefit for a little time investment. While you may be at Zweiback Medical Associates for an hour or more so the topical numbing solution has time to work before the microneedling begins, the treatment itself takes just 30-45 minutes.

Afterward, your skin looks pink like you have a mild sunburn, but it’s a sign that your skin can optimally absorb moisture at a deeper level than usual. It’s at this juncture that many people also opt for a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) application so protein-rich growth factors extracted from your own blood (prior to your microneedling treatment) can penetrate the deeper layers of your skin.

PRP after microneedling stimulates your skin even further to accelerate the production of new collagen and elastin cells. Microneedling by itself yields wonderful results; PRP just gives your skin an added rejuvenating boost.

Microneedling is a natural way to get results

Microneedling and PRP treatments are natural skin rejuvenation procedures. You don’t have to worry that the solution you’re injecting into your skin may cause an allergic reaction. Microneedling simply creates tiny puncture wounds as a way to trigger your body’s natural healing response, and if you opt for PRP afterward, there’s virtually no risk of developing an adverse reaction to your own blood.

Look like a celebrity without a movie star salary

While Kim Kardashian and other A-list celebrities undoubtedly have an unlimited budget for aesthetic procedures, skin care, and, frankly, anything else they desire, the rest of us live in the real world. When celebrities can choose any type of skin rejuvenation treatment they’d like, it speaks volumes that they so often use microneedling to maintain their flawless appearance. You, too, can achieve big-screen-worthy skin without breaking the bank.

With so many reasons to love microneedling, we’re not surprised that so many celebrities rave about it. You don’t have to be famous to experience first-hand the numerous anti-aging and skin health benefits of microneedling. Call or click online today to schedule your appointment.
