Microneedling For Cellulite – Does Microneedling Work on Cellulite?

Does Microneedling Work on Cellulite?

Does micro needling work on cellulite? This is a frequently asked question and the answer is a definite yes. It’ a safe and effective method of getting rid of unsightly lumps and bumps to leave skin plumper, hydrated, and smooth. Microneedling procedures restore the healthy youthful appearance of skin with minimal or zero downtime – and visible signs of improvement can be seen after just one session.

What is cellulite?

Cellulite is an uneven fat deposition in the skin. The skin is made up of the epidermis, dermis, and the subcutaneous layer – below are muscles and bones. The subcutaneous layer is composed of mainly fat cells, and when these rise the skin becomes lumpy and uneven.

This dimpled appearance is more common in women and mainly affects hips, thighs, and buttocks. Heredity, gender, skin thickness, age, and distribution of body fat can all influence the extent to which cellulite is present and visible – an inactive lifestyle can also increase the risk of developing cellulite.

The micro-needling procedure

A derma roller for cellulite works by puncturing the skin with tiny holes – stimulating the production of new collagen and generating new cells. Collagen is a protein found in muscles, skin, and bones making skin strong and elastic. Cellulite can be dramatically reduced by increasing circulation to targeted areas

The microneedle is rolled over the targeted area to create micro injuries to get the brain to jump into repair mode. The body is prompted to send collagen to the epidermis – more collagen promotes radiant and healthy skin.

Extra benefits

  • Microneedling increases the absorption of moisturising skin creams – delivering vital ingredients quickly to speed up the renewal process
  • Microneedling reduces pore size – improving general blood circulation to the skin
  • Microneedling is a much less invasive treatment option for cellulite – by comparison to lasers and chemical peels
  • Microneedling is effective – collagen production has been shown to increase by 400%
  • Microneedling can be carried out at home – but they may not be as intense or best suited compared to professional treatments

Extra Help

Dr Q – a cosmetic doctor at Luxe Skin with years of expertise in micro-needling – confirms that micro-needling for cellulite will certainly improve the appearance of the skin. You’ll be able to get an initial consultation to determine that you’re suitable for this treatment – then you’ll be given a minimum of three needling sessions six weeks apart for optimal effect.

The procedure is virtually pain-free as a local anaesthetic can be applied to the area prior to treatment –producing a numbing effect and making it comfortable. Microneedling of the skin facilitates skin repair without scarring and is widely known to be safe and effective.

And finally…

To keep on top of any cellulite problems you should take daily exercise – walking and swimming are the best forms to increase blood circulation and loosen any fat tissue. Applying cellulite products can restore the skin’s elasticity – Gingko Biloba is a powerful antioxidant that effectively oxidises fat cells and strengthens veins which helps get rid of cellulite.

Massages and body scrubs will increase fat dispersion if done on a regular basis, and cutting down on refined and processed foods, alongside high fat products will all help prevent cellulite in the future.

Thanks Dr. Q!

Dr. Q has done my lip fillers and wrinkle reduction. Lots of people tell me I’m looking really well but my look is natural so they don’t always guess I’ve had any work done and that’s exactly what I wanted. Dr. Q listens well and therefore provides the look you want. Nice relaxed atmosphere in the clinic. Treatments are painless (I use anaesthetic cream for lip fillers). The clinic is clean and bright. Love my little visits!
