Why Microneedling Is Back in Fashion

Microneedling is nothing new — it’s been in use since the 1990s. And for a while there, it was the go-to skin treatment, reducing signs of aging and evening out the complexion. But as is the case in all industries, other, newer treatments came along and stole the spotlight.

But now, microneedling is having a resurgence. Why exactly is that, and should you be jumping on this bandwagon?

Does Microneedling Work?

At this point, we have decades of data on microneedling, and the results show that yes — it really does work. While results vary between people and depend on what complementary treatments you get (radiofrequency and PRP therapy both give it a serious boost), nearly everyone who gets microneedling treatment can expect to see changes in their skin.

Microneedling works by hacking the healing response in our bodies. As the applicator moves across the skin, the tiny needles create micro-injuries that our bodies instantly work to heal. This response includes the creation of new collagen and elastin fibers and the regeneration of cells.

Microneedling is effective but your results are unique to you.

Why Is Microneedling Big Again?

There are a few reasons for this. First, people in general are just more interested in med spa skin treatments than they were in the past, especially for the face (though microneedling can be used on other parts of the body as well). Microneedling pairs well with other med spa treatments, so it is just natural for people to lean into it.

The second reason is that the DIY version — dermarolling — has gotten a lot of attention over the last few years. Plenty of people see the appeal in this but know that sticking needles into your skin thousands of times in a single session unsupervised at home isn’t a good idea. So, they opt for the safer option of professional microneedling.
