You may want to try out microneedling if you have acne, scar marks, aging, and sunspots. The revolutionary solution enables dramatic improvements to your texture and skin tone.
WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
It is a cosmetic procedure that involves pricking the skin with thin, tiny, sharp needles. It causes punctures on the skin that stimulate collagen production as they heal. It is less expensive than laser treatments and works better on people with darker skin tones.
It can use radio waves, but it does not employ heat like laser treatment. Therefore, it does not affect darker skin color. However, make sure you talk to your dermatologist before getting the procedure.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The functionality behind microneedling is to boost the production of collagen and elastin. Once the body feels the pricks, it registers them as wounds and works to heal the cuts. The punctures are only surface level. Therefore, the procedure has minimal pain. However, it is advisable to let an expert do the microneedling to avoid hurting yourself.
The treatment starts with the application of numbing cream on your face. The numbing cream is vital since it prevents you from feeling the pricks. After that, the technician will use a pen-shaped rolling and pricking tool on your face. Sometimes, they may also use radiofrequency microneedling, which enhances the effects and boosts collagen production.
Afterward, the technician may spread a serum on your face to help with the healing process. The procedure takes about 20 to 30 minutes, and you may need four to six treatments to see a difference.
BENEFITS OF MICRONEEDLING
You can employ microneedling on other body parts like your stomach and thighs. It will help improve the texture and skin tone in these areas. The procedure is not invasive like plastic surgery, so the recovery time is short. Some people do not even require any recovery time.
BOOSTS COLLAGEN PRODUCTION
Collagen is the main structural protein in connective tissue. When healing wounds, collagen attracts fibroblasts and stimulates new tissue growth. It restores the skin and makes it firm. As the skin gets firm, it gets rid of wrinkles and stretch marks. It also improves the texture and tone of your skin.
STIMULATES NEW TISSUE GROWTH
The new tissue growth helps deal with acne and scar marks. It rejuvenates your skin and makes you look young and fresh. It also allows your skin to breathe as its appearance improves.
RESTORES SKIN ELASTICITY
As you age, your skin may sag and have wrinkles. Microneedling stimulates the production of elastin, a protein present in connective tissue. It allows it to stretch out and then resume its shape. With the restoration of skin elasticity, the skin texture improves.
After microneedling, your skin will be silky soft. It will have clear pores that take in topical products better. Microneedling reduces scars and hyperpigmentation to give you a better skin tone. The effects may seem modest, but they boost your confidence. They leave your skin healthy and vibrant, allowing you to make the most of your skincare products.
