Ready to put your best face forward this summer but your skin needs a boost? Microneedling and chemical peels are two of the least invasive ways to correct minor, cosmetic issues and rejuvenate your skin. The loss of elastin and collagen can cause thinning, sagging skin, and facial wrinkles, but by tricking your skin into thinking it has been wounded, these treatments stimulate your body’s natural healing processes. This results in faster cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production in the treated areas.
Microneedling is the process of creating hundreds of invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of skin through the use of tiny needles that are attached to a hand-held device. Topical gels, creams, and serums are also absorbed more effectively into the skin through these tiny holes. Microneedling is used to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, age spots, rosacea, and acne. It is also used for multiple types of scarring, including acne scars, surgical scars, and stretch marks. While most people receive microneedling treatments on their face, they can be used on multiple other areas of the body with each treatment requiring minimal downtime.
During a chemical peel, a strong, acid solution is applied to the skin that sloughs away damaged outer layers, resulting in improved fine lines, acne, discoloration, and more. As this topmost layer of skin is shed, collagen production is increased. Plus, your skin-care products will work more effectively now that they do not have to penetrate through the top layer of dead cells. Chemical peels generally have longer recovery times than microneedling treatments, but they are often more effective in treating deep, pitted acne scars. Chemical peel solutions are primarily used to correct cosmetic issues on the face, rather than the broad range of skin surfaces that microneedling can be used for. You may experience moderate to extensive peeling for several days or weeks after a chemical peel, but chemical peels are low-risk and you can receive a customized peel that addresses your individual skin concerns.
