What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling, otherwise known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a dermal therapy cosmetic procedure that induces the skin to generate new collagen which, in turn, results in the skin tissue becoming brighter, firmer, and smoother.
Apparent from its name, Microneedling is performed using a device with small needle tips to create punctures on the skin surface. These small punctures are responsible for collagen induction and, as a result, for the enhancement of the texture of the skin.
If administered by a specialist, Microneedling is considered a safely effective rejuvenation treatment for fading minor acne scars, aging wrinkles, dark spots, hyperpigmentation and stretch marks as well as for skin brightening and lightening.
How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling helps generate new collagen by means of a device with tiny needles that prick the skin and induce it to renew itself. As soon as the body feels the pricks, it reacts to heal the cuts. As a result, the skin looks refreshed.
As a well examined treatment, Microneedling helps rejuvenate the skin by stimulating the production of collagen by fibroblast cells in lower layers of the skin also resulting in reduction of wrinkles and fine lines.
For Microneedling to yield good results, you may need at least four procedures. Optimal results will be seen usually with more than four sessions.
Provided that the procedure is done by a dermal therapist, Microneedling can be far more efficacious than using at-home rollers.
What Will you Experience?
Whether it is about stretch marks, dark spots, or any other skin texture issue, prior to the procedure, your skin surface is cleansed and dried and a numbing cream is applied all over the treated area. Then, the needling device starts puncturing your skin, calling your body to generate collagen. The Microneedling procedure is followed up with the application of soothing and hydrating products.
Paired with Radiofrequency, the effectiveness of Microneedling is boosted; and so, will the vibrancy of your skin. Radiofrequency waves are transferred down to the needles heating the dermis, the lower layer of the skin, which elevates the collagen induction process.
Microneedling is most often performed on the face skin and it can help reduce or fade hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, acne scars, and even large pores.
