How Does Microneedling Rejuvenate the Skin?
Skin rejuvenation is the process of breathing new life back into your skin. Over the years, you put your skin through a lot of trauma. This isn’t intentional, it’s simply a side-effect of life – think about everything your skin is exposed to! Cold weather, dirt, and the natural aging process will all wreak havoc on your skin, leading to a host of imperfections. As such, we offer treatments like microneedling to help rejuvenate your skin and restore its fresh, glowing, look.

At Baltic Beauty Centre, we have many treatments that revolve around triggering natural systems and responses in your body. Microneedling does just this, its purpose is to jumpstart your body’s natural healing process. Microinjuries are made in your skin – they’re so small you barely see them. This triggers a response from your immune system. It encourages the production of collagen and elastin to flood the damaged areas and heal the microinjuries. This increased production of collagen and elastin will also help get rid of wrinkles and provide your skin with a tighter, firmer, and more youthful appearance.
Microneedling procedures should only be provided by experienced licensed aestheticians. It begins by applying a numbing cream to the target area, before applying a special device to your skin. Here, the tiny needles make the small cuts that trigger the process mentioned above. The procedure lasts around 10-20 minutes, and you should have between 4-6 treatments to see the desired results.
Baltic Beauty Centre also offers the option of PRP microneedling to take your results even further. We utilize your own platelet-rich plasma and inject it into the treatment area. PRP is a concentration of platelets in the blood that are responsible for healing wounds and regenerating tissues. As such, it speeds up the healing process and can make you produce even more elastin and collagen. This isn’t an essential part of the microneedling procedure, but it is something we can add to your treatment if you wish.
You may experience some redness and peeling after the treatment, but these are natural responses to what’s happened. It’s important to protect your face by using an SPF moisturizer and staying out of the sun. We can also recommend other products to help soothe any soreness and help your skin recover quicker, to get ready for your next appointment. You should be able to get on with your usual daily routine, just be aware there will be redness for a few days.
Benefits of Microneedling
Microneedling is a highly beneficial treatment for skin rejuvenation as it uses your body’s natural defense system to yield incredible results. It can lead to tighter skin with fewer wrinkles, a more even skin tone, a reduction in the appearance of acne scars and sun spots, as well as a glowing complexion. All of this is possible in just a few treatments, and it’s minimally invasive!
