Microneedling is the Anti-ageing Beauty Treatment Jennifer Aniston can’t live without
When it comes to anti-ageing beauty treatments, celebrities have tried it all. That said, there is one treatment that many — including Jennifer Aniston — swear by. So, what is this secret weapon against fine lines, wrinkles, and other visible signs of ageing? Microneedling!
Interview with People Magazine
In interview with People Magazine, Aniston remarked, “it allows the serums and whatever products you’re using to really soak in.” Aniston is referring to the fact that microneedling (through the many micro-punctures created on the skin) provides a short window of opportunity that allows post-treatment products to travel down the fresh channels in the skin reaching the important parts at concentrations that are not otherwise possible. These channels allow a momentary increase in permeability that is hundreds of times the normal degree that topical products can penetrate the skin. The effects of topical serums can be accelerated dramatically.
Benefits of Microneedling
But that’s actually not the main benefit of microneedling.
The single most aging thing that happens to our skin is the gradual loss of collagen and elastin. Microneedling triggers the skins wound-responses causing it to produce new collagen and elastin and making the skin look and feel younger and firmer. Wrinkles are reduced, tones are evened and sagging is lifted.
Unlike many other profoundly effective treatments microneedling does not try to force skin cells into a different state unnaturally. Microneedling triggers the skin’s own native rejuvenation process and is, therefore, completely natural. For this reason it works amazingly well with all skin types.
