5 Skin Flaws Remedied with Microneedling

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure doctors use to treat various skin problems; most people don't understand how it works.

People living with certain skin flaws can benefit from the minimally invasive procedure, including those dealing with the signs of aging. If you're concerned with how your skin looks, the team at VitalizeMD Skin Care & Laser Center has various options to help.

Dr. Zainab Nawab is an aesthetics specialist offering microneedling and other cutting-edge treatments to improve skin tone and appearance for a healthy, confident glow.

How does microneedling work?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that utilizes tiny needles to create microtrauma in the skin. Although this may sound barbaric, it's a very effective treatment for various skin problems.

We only penetrate the top layer of skin with tiny needles, stimulating the body's healing process. The body responds to the tiny microtrauma the needles cause, stimulating the production of elastin and collagen.

Elastin and collagen are the primary components of skin that keep it firm and tight. However, the body produces less of both as you age, causing skin flaws like fine lines, sagging, and wrinkles.

Most people get microneedling on the face, but we can also do it on other body areas like the legs, neck, and back. Most people need more than one treatment to get the desired results, depending on the severity of the skin problem.

Skin flaws microneedling helps

Microneedling is a great, non-surgical option for many seeking more refined skin and a youthful appearance. At our practice, Dr. Nawab offers microneedling for various skin flaws, including the following five issues:

1. Large pores

While pores are necessary aspects of the skin, they're often more prominent than people would like. Large pores are difficult to keep from bacteria, often leading to acne and other skin problems.


Microneedling is an excellent option to reduce pore size and achieve a smoother, cleaner appearance on the skin.

2. Acne scars

Anyone with acne knows the embarrassment of acne scars; they never seem to go away and make it hard to have self-confidence in your skin.

Microneedling diminishes the signs of acne scars by stimulating more elastin and collagen, which smooth out scarred skin after several treatments.

3. Fine lines and wrinkles

Wrinkles and fine lines are familiar with age, but you don't have to live with them. Microneedling is an excellent treatment to reduce the appearance of fine lines and smooth out wrinkles.

4. Pigmentation problems

Dark spots and uneven pigmentation are common issues among men and women, especially with age. Dr. Nawab helps reduce hyperpigmentation through microneedling by repairing damaged skin and activating the body's healing response.

5. Stretch marks

Stretch marks are a type of scarring that occurs when your skin stretches too quickly, leading to indentations in the skin. Pregnancy, weight gain, and extreme bodybuilding lead to stretch marks, which cause embarrassment.

Microneedling helps the skin recover from stretch marks by producing more elastin and collagen, filling in the stretch marks' indentations.

Benefits of microneedling

Microneedling boasts various benefits over other forms of treatment that enhance your skin. It's non-surgical, which is one of the most significant benefits of the procedure, along with these advantages:

  • Minimal side effects
  • Extremely safe
  • Highly effective
  • Minimally invasive
  • No risk of skin discoloration

If you're tired of dealing with skin flaws that you're unable to treat on your own, microneedling is an excellent option for treatment. Dr. Nawab evaluates your skin and discusses your goals to determine if you're a good candidate for this treatment.
