By piercing your skin with tiny needles, microneedling uses your body’s natural rejuvenation process. A micro-wound triggers your body’s healing response by creating new tissues, collagen, and elastin. In addition to reducing wrinkles, tightening loose skin, and minimizing scarring, the procedure improves the appearance of your skin.
Around the age of 30, collagen and elastin, two essential components of your skin, begin to diminish. Your skin’s healing response is induced by microneedling. Micro-wounds are closed almost immediately by your skin in response to the procedure. You will notice a noticeable softening and smoothing of your skin after the treatment.
Similarly to improving the overall texture of your skin, microneedling treatments reduce acne scars. Scarring occurs when your body undergoes fibrosis, which pulls the skin down, causing unsightly irregularities to appear. Hyperpigmentation may also occur as a result of pimples, blackheads, or whiteheads.
It is important to remember that micro-needling effects are not permanent, but they can last for a long time with the right maintenance program.
Once you achieve your desired results, you can repeat the treatment every four to six weeks. In order to encourage collagen production, it is typically recommended that you undergo three treatments, separated by about four to six weeks.
The average number of treatments needed to reduce the appearance of scars is three to six.
Your number of treatments will depend on how you respond to your treatments and the extent of your damage at the beginning.
Microneedling targets fine lines and wrinkles to reverse the effects of aging. Microneedling triggers growth factors when it penetrates the dermis, allowing your skin to repair itself quickly. As a result of stimulating the production of collagen, your skin tightens and wrinkles are reduced.
You may benefit from microneedling treatments if you still suffer from acne or blackheads. By poking holes in your uppermost layer of skin with sterilized needles, they remove the source of the recurring blackheads. It is expected that your pores will appear smaller after the procedure, especially around your nose.
Take advantage of microneedling treatments as part of your regular self-care and anti-aging routine. When it comes to preventing new wrinkles or preventing early signs of aging, microneedling is very effective. You can keep your skin looking radiant and youthful for longer by combining regular microneedling sessions with powerful antioxidant serums, such as vitamin C.
A numbing cream or ointment, such as lidocaine gel, is applied to your skin by your healthcare provider. This is done about 30 minutes to 45 minutes before the procedure, so that the ointment can work properly.
To make the wounds in your skin, your healthcare provider uses a hand-held roller or an electric tool. There are tiny needles on the roller. It is rolled slowly and gently across your skin by your healthcare provider. Electric devices puncture your skin with needles that pulse up and down. The electric device allows them to adjust the needle length. If you have deep scars or pockmarks from acne, longer needles will reach deeper into your skin. It is possible to use needles that are between 0.5 millimeters and 2 millimeters in length.
As soon as microneedling begins, you might feel warmth or a scratching sensation on your face. There are some people who feel discomfort when needles are placed near bony areas, such as their cheekbones. It is possible that deep microneedling will cause some bleeding.
Depending on the size of the area that needs to be treated, microneedling can take between 15 minutes and a few hours.
