Why Micro-Needling Isn't Bad!
Microneedling also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that helps minimize the signs of aging, improve the appearance of acne scars and rejuvenates aging skin. The micro-injuries created. stimulates the body’s natural wound healing processes, resulting in cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production, therefore reversing, as well as preventing signs of aging.
Reduces fine and deep wrinkles-
With its ability to trigger the generation of new skin cells, in just a few sessions micro-needling will noticeably reduce fine lines, crow’s feet, and deep wrinkles. With minimal downtime, the results appear natural which only increase micro needling's appeal.
Repairs visible scars–
In 2009 a study
was conducted on the effects of micro needling, nearly 100 percent of acne-scarred participants reported a marked improvement in the visibility of their acne scars. Professional grade micro-needling devices can be as long as 3 mm, which is twice as effective and will treat deep acne scars that occur beneath the surface of the skin.
Reverses sun damage and pigmentation–
Once again, collagen is arguably the most vital way to improve the look of skin, and this goes far beyond reducing wrinkles. By stimulating collagen growth with micro-needling, you can also reverse sun damage and discoloration, including the hyperpigmentation that comes with melasma.
Helps aging skin–
On top of micro-needling’s ability to smooth and correct damaged skin, it also has the added bonus of tightening loose skin. The older you are the less collagen is produced therefore causing loose skin.
It’s a bit counter-intuitive, but micro-needling doesn’t actually enlarge pores as you might imagine piercing your skin hundreds of times would. Rather, one major benefit is that it helps pores appear much smaller. Microneedling stimulates collagen in and around your pores, which causes them to plump and appear shrunken, if not closed. And let’s be honest, who doesn’t want smaller pores?
Makes your products work better–
One of microneedling’s additional appeals is that it improves product absorption tremendously. It creates thousands of invisible holes in your skin that are ready to absorb products in a way clogged pores can’t.
Finally, the benefit of microneedling isn’t exclusive to the face. It can be done in any area of skin that needs to be repaired—particularly areas that display stretch marks or acne scars. As few as four to six sessions could make a difference in these problem areas.
