Laser skin resurfacing and microneedling treatments provide skin rejuvenation that can address acne scars, aging signs and other skin conditions. Understanding the difference between microneedling and laser treatment can help you select the best route for youthful-looking skin.

The Pros and Cons of Microneedling

Microneedling treatments use a special device tool to make microscopic injuries in the skin. This process encourages collagen and elastin production. These substances improve skin firmness and enhance cell turnover to address uneven skin tone. Pros of microneedling include:

  • Safe and relatively painless with minimal side effects
  • Effective for all complexions, unlike heat treatments that can cause a rick for hyperpigmentation
  • The ability of products to penetrate deeper layers of skin through the microscopic channels, creating more impressive results from your skin rejuvenation program

Microneedling is only right for some. As a mechanical rejuvenation method, this treatment creates subtle complexion changes that can take months to become noticeable. It also takes time to see results like smoother, firmer skin. You shouldn’t undergo this procedure if you have psoriasis, eczema, acne or an active skin infection.
