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.

Micro-Needling vs Botox

Micro-Needling as a Compliment to Botox

Micro-Needling vs Botox

An increase in the amount or severity of facial wrinkles can lead to uncomfortable feelings. Many patients improve this problem with Botox injections, but sometimes they just can’t seem to get maximum results. Luckily, micro-needling has emerged as a safe and effective compliment to injections. Micro-needling is a procedure where a physician uses tiny needle pricks to gently injure wrinkled skin. The injured skin releases collagen and elastin as it begins the healing process. Collagen and elastin soften and thicken the skin. They are key in eliminating fine wrinkles and improving the skin’s appearance and texture.

The Amazing Benefits of Facial Microneedling

Microneedling

With all of the focus on rejuvenating the skin and creating a youthful, glowing appearance, more and more people are turning to various cosmetic procedures to improve their faces. Some of these include microdermabrasion, facial fillers, Botox injections, and even facelifts. However, microneedling is on its way up in the cosmetic surgery world, and for several very good reasons.

What Is Microneedling, Exactly?

Microneedling is, in a nutshell, a process by which a series of very fine needles create tiny, almost unnoticeable injuries in the skin to promote natural healing processes. Your skin’s elasticity and firmness come from a substance known as collagen, and as you age, your body produces less and less of it. Microneedling creates microscopic channels in your skin, and this triggers your body to fill those injuries with collagen and elastin. Over time, patients see improvements in the overall firmness and texture of their skin.

Microneedles May Be the New Facial Lasers

Microneedling

It is common knowledge that certain habits can hurt your skin. Failing to wear sunscreen and picking at acne can leave behind scars and blemishes. However, some research suggests that hurting your skin in some ways might actually make it look better. One of these trends, microneedles, may become even more popular than laser treatments.

What Is Microneedling?

During the microneedling process, a surgeon uses a tool containing tiny needles to essentially create thousands of tiny injuries to the skin. These tiny injuries are not evident to the eye, but they trigger the skin to create a substance called collagen, which plumps the skin and makes it appear firmer and more youthful. The process essentially triggers the body’s healing response by causing a tiny amount of damage. Dermatologists maintain that the treatment is safe for all skin types as long as the doctor ensures that the microneedles penetrate all the way through the top layer of skin.
