The Awesome Benefits of Microneedling

Benefits of Microneedling

Microneedling is a procedure that’s growing in popularity with men and women across the globe. It involves using very, very tiny needles to create hundreds of invisible puncture wounds on the very top layer of your skin. While it might not sound very comfortable or appealing, it’s more comfortable than you might expect, and the benefits certainly speak for themselves.

How Microneedling Works

Before your microneedling session, your plastic surgeon or dermatologist will first cleanse your face very painstakingly with an antibacterial and germicidal solution. This will reduce any chance of infection. Because microneedling can be painful for some, many doctors and surgeons will use a local anesthetic to numb the top layer of the skin, thus reducing the sensation of pain and discomfort. Finally, the doctor will use a tool that looks much like a small lint covered in tiny needles over the entire surface area of your face, avoiding the eyes.

As the roller moves over your face, it creates hundreds and even thousands of microscopic holes in the very surface of your skin. These holes injure the skin just enough that your immune system must kick in to repair it. Studies have shown that this tiny, unnoticeable injury is just enough to kick your skin’s collagen production into overdrive. As your skin repairs itself, it looks firmer, more youthful, and supplier.

Facial Wrinkles

Different Types of Wrinkles & How to Fix Them

Facial Wrinkles

Not all wrinkles are the same, and this means that not all wrinkle treatments are the same. Here, you can learn more about each of the five types of wrinkles, how they form, and the best ways to reduce their appearances through lifestyle changes and cosmetic treatments.

Elastic Wrinkles

Elastic wrinkles are those that form due to spending too much time in the sun or in a tanning bed. They look like creases, and they’re more common on your neck, lips, and cheeks. If you want to avoid them, cover up before going in the sun and make sure you’re using plenty of sunscreen. Although tanning beds can help you achieve a gorgeous golden color, they’ll also cause wrinkles. Swap your tanning sessions for high-quality spray tans instead. If you already have elastic wrinkles, certain types of chemical peels and laser treatments can reduce their appearance.

Plastic Surgery Advice

The Worst Advice We’ve Ever Heard about Plastic Surgery

Plastic Surgery Advice

People have plastic surgery for many different reasons, and the clear majority of those people seek advice long before they ever start looking for a surgeon. Unfortunately, not all the advice they receive is sound, and in some cases, it’s downright terrible. Here are some examples of the worst advice we’ve ever heard about plastic surgery.

#1 – Getting Surgery Will Make People Like You

Some of the people who seek plastic surgery think that changing the way they look will make people like them. In fact, recent surveys have shown a startling trend. More and more people over age 50 in the workplace are having plastic surgery to “compete” with their younger coworkers. They feel that by looking younger, they’ll be considered for the same promotions, perks, and benefits as their younger counterparts. This is often not the case. Much as you should never have plastic surgery to please someone else, you shouldn’t do it to compete, either. It’s all about feeling good in your own skin and reflecting on the outside what you feel on the inside.
