Microneedling vs Microdermabrasion

At 4 Ever Young, we are dedicated to offering you the latest and greatest cosmetic procedures to help you look as young as you feel. That is why we are proud to offer microneedling treatments at our clinic in Boca Raton. Microneedling is a more recent alternative to the classic microdermabrasion procedure. While both microneedling and microdermabrasion are designed to revitalize your skin and give you back a youthful complexion, microneedling works to promote healing deeper in the dermis to truly optimize your results!

Microdermabrasion, which has long been considered a gold standard for skin rejuvenation treatments, involves gently blowing fine crystals onto the skin and suctioning away the debris. This exfoliation helps reveal healthier looking skin and treat issues such as dull skin, discoloration and fine lines.

Microneedling, on the other hand, does not exfoliate the skin. Instead, a small handheld tool with a number of microneedles on it is used to create a series of microwounds in the skin. The body then responds by increasing the production of new collagen, elastin and skin cells. This helps to restore lost elasticity and firmness to the skin and promote a younger looking complexion.

Microneedling can be used to treat a number of different skin concerns. These include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Enlarged pores
  • Age or sun spots

Because both microneedling and microdermabrasion work so differently, they offer very different benefits. Microdermabrasion treatments produce immediate improvements in the appearance and texture of your skin. Microneedling results, on the other hand, generally take between 6-8 weeks to become apparent. And because microneedling is non-ablative, it is ideal for almost all skin types and tones, even those that are not candidates for microdermabrasion.
