Whether you love her or hate her, it’s hard not to admire Gwyneth Paltrow’s glowing, youthful skin. Her skin secret, and reportedly one of her beauty obsessions, is microneedling. And she’s not the only celebrity touting the benefits of this noninvasive skin rejuvenation procedure. Naomi Watts, Jennifer Aniston, and at least one (or more) Kardashians undergo this treatment to help attain their radiant, youthful appearances.

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a procedure where a skincare professional jabs tiny needles into your skin. These needle jabs puncture or wound your skin in order to promote collagen induction to help heal your skin and the skin around each puncture.

Collagen is a protein that gives skin its elasticity, fullness, and plumpness. Unfortunately, collagen diminishes as we get older, which results in saggy, lined skin. Boosting collagen production can help your skin look younger and firmer.

Benefits of microneedling

Some of the reasons that microneedling is so popular with Hollywood is that results are long lasting and natural looking, and the procedure is quick. Plus, the side effects and downtime are minimal. Side effects include redness and irritation for a day or two after the procedure.

There are many other reasons why celebrities love microneedling, and you will, too. Microneedling has minimal downtime and the treatment also:

Another bonus of microneedling is that it can help reduce the appearance of stretch marks on your stomach and thighs.

The most effective type of microneedling

Microneedling has been around for decades but has recently become popular again because of technique innovations. Over the years, new and improved techniques have been developed, making microneedling even more effective as a skin rejuvenator. Here at Serenity Medical Spa, Dr. Sharon Gertzman uses the latest and most effective technology called Vivace™ RF, which combines radiofrequency with microneedling.

Radiofrequency energy combined with the needles helps jumpstart your collagen production more than just microneedling alone. Depending on your skin and appearance goals, you may need several treatments spaced out a month apart.

You may be thinking that getting jabbed with needles in your face would be quite painful. But numbing cream applied before the treatment helps make the procedure virtually pain free.

What happens after the treatment?

Immediately following the treatment, you should avoid exercise and wearing make up for a day or two. You should also avoid the sun and refrain from using any acid-containing products for as long as Dr. Gertzman recommends.

Within a few months, you’ll start to notice firmer, tighter, and more radiant skin. Microneedling is appropriate for all skin types. However, if you’re pregnant or have certain skin conditions, you may not be a good candidate for this procedure. Dr. Gertzman can advise you if microneedling is a good option for you.
