Popularly known as the Polka Dot treatment, Gold Standard Retinol Microneedling is currently all the rage in skincare. Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that uses a device called a dermapen to create tiny punctures in the skin’s surface, stimulating the body’s natural healing response and encouraging the production of collagen and elastin. This results in smoother, more radiant skin, and can also improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, and hyperpigmentation.
Gold Standard Retinol Microneedling on the other hand, is a more advanced form of microneedling that incorporates the use of retinol into the treatment process. Retinol is one of the purest forms of vitamin A that has been shown to have numerous benefits for the skin, including reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving skin texture and tone, and promoting collagen production.
To put it simply, Microneedling with Retinol makes it 100 times more effective because Retinol activates the cellular activity of the cells by giving it energy to work faster and more efficiently. it goes deeper into the skin than a topical application. It encourages faster collagen production and clears the skin for a fresher, radiant complexion.
Microneedling creates a false injury in the target area which activates the body’s healing response. The micro wounds created on the skin lets the retinol penetrate deeper into the skin. This leads to an increase in the production of collagen and elastin, which aids in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and the results are truly transformative.
Retinol is effective in reducing the appearance of acne scars. It works by increasing cell turnover and promoting the growth of new skin cells, which can help to fade the appearance of scars over time. When used in conjunction with microneedling, it can penetrate deeper into the skin to target even the deepest scars.
Retinol Microneedling significantly helps reduce the appearance of sun damage which manifests as hyperpigmentation, age spots, open pores, and uneven skin tone. The stimulation of collagen and elastin leads to replenishment of skin cells which gives the skin a radiant, youthful appearance.
Besides wrinkles and uneven skin tone, your skin loses elasticity as you age. It also looks dull and lacks lustre. Retinol Microneedling ensures that the products penetrate deep within the layers of the skin to ensure the production of collagen and elastin which plays a vital role in keeping the skin youthful and plump.
