Microneedling: What Is It?

There are several benefits of microneedling. One of the main features of this minimally invasive treatment is that it can be used all over the body. It’s ideal for improving the appearance of scars, stimulating hair growth, and increasing collagen. 

Microneedling is a beauty treatment that inserts very fine short needles into the skin for rejuvenation. Please note that this procedure is almost pain-free as the punctures are more like pin-pricks since they don’t enter deep only surface-level. 

The primary purpose of microneedling is to produce new collagen making the skin smoother, firmer, and toned. This procedure is usually used on the face to treat large pores, scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. 

One of the best things about microneedling is that it’s minimally invasive, and when it’s done by a professional, it’s considered safe for most healthy people. Please take note that microneedling isn’t recommended for those using particular acne medication or for pregnant women. 

After the treatment, you can expect minor redness and irritation for a couple of days. 

It’s essential to know that the total preparation and procedure time takes about two hours. And you’ll need a minimum of four treatments for the best results. 

What To Expect During Microneedling?

Microneedling should be performed for at least four to six sessions, spaced about 30 days apart. 

It’s essential to know that the needles are inserted deeper in each session since the skin can endure it because it becomes thicker. 

The procedure is almost pain-free as a topical anesthetic is applied then a roller is used to insert the tiny needles into the skin. The purpose of doing micro punctures is to damage the skin to stimulate the body to send elastin and collagen to the injuries to repair them. 

When the skin is damaged, the body must make new collagen to fill them in and heal them. Boosting collagen production makes the skin look and feel younger, tighter, and slicker. Microneedling is terrific for increasing collagen synthesis. 

A collagen boosting serum is applied after the treatment. 

Keep in mind that the skin would be susceptible after the treatment, so you need to be careful when applying any topical product. Remember, skincare products can get deeper into the skin, which can irritate it. 

Please note that microneedling is not a quick fix, and it takes some time before you notice a difference. 

Finally, microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment, so it’s recommended to use it as part of a more extensive skincare regimen.
