If you suffer from acne scars, skin discoloration, or signs of aging, Microneedling could be a quick and inexpensive treatment to address your concerns. By stimulating your body to produce more collagen, this procedure gives skin a smoother, younger appearance.
What Is Microneedling?
Despite its intimidating name, this procedure is known to be quick and pain-free. Each treatment takes between 15 and 60 minutes, during which a professional will use a tool to enter the top layer of skin with tiny needles.
After applying numbing cream, the microneedles are precisely calibrated to create tiny channels in the skin at specific intervals. Most people report no pain whatsoever during the process, in contrast to other aesthetic procedures that may result in higher levels of discomfort.
This procedure is so effective because it causes the body to trigger its wound-healing process. As a result, elevated levels of collagen and elastin are produced, helping to eliminate hyperpigmentation and scars and lifting saggy skin.
What Are The Benefits Of Microneedling?
This procedure has a wide range of benefits and is suitable for all skin types. In particular, unlike procedures that utilize heat, this procedure is safe for darker skin tones and will not trigger hyperpigmentation. Because the needles enter the skin at such a superficial level, it is even suitable for sensitive skin.
This service can reduce the appearance of:
- Acne Scars
- Skin discoloration/hyperpigmentation
- Saggy skin
- Large pores
Many people see both short- and long-term benefits. The day after the procedure, you may notice that your skin has a beautiful “glow.” This can actually be attributed to the short-term inflammation caused by the wound-healing response, but even after the “glow” fades, it can show longer-term benefits as your skin produces collagen over time.
In addition, this service can drastically improve the efficacy of topical products, like moisturizers and serums, thanks to the channels created in the skin during the procedure. Ingredients are thus able to penetrate much more deeply into the skin and give better results.
It’s important to note that to see strong, consistent results from this procedure, multiple sessions are needed. Microneedling once a month for several months can drastically reduce the appearance of acne scars and fine lines.
What can you expect during your treatment?
While other aesthetic procedures take hours to complete and require many days of recovery, this service can be completed within an hour.
On clean, dry skin, a technician will apply a numbing cream to your entire face. After the cream has had time to take effect, they will use a professional device to complete the procedure. Depending on the thickness and sensitivity of different areas of your skin, different lengths of microneedles will be used.
Once the session is complete, you may notice redness, irritation, or inflammation for a day or so. Some patients may also experience mild breakouts following a session. These side effects should clear up within just a few days, however, making it one of the least time-intensive facial aesthetic procedures.
