What is the Microneedling? How does it work?
Microneedling is also referred as skin needling, percutaneous collagen induction or intra-dermabration, is a sophisticated technique, which promotes the body’s natural production of collagen and melanocytes (pigment producing cells). This process smoothes out scars wrinkles and can even the tone of some skin discoloration. This non-invasive intra-derambration procedure is long lasting and all-natural rejuvenation for the skin, similar to laser resurfacing.
Another way to describe how this procedure works is by making microscopic punches to the epidermis with the use of digital machine. It stimulates the body’s natural wound healing by breaking up old collagen strands in scars and wrinkles to produce natural collagen and melanocytes, making smoother skin. It simulates the effect of those from laser resurfacing, but without the harsh damage to the epidermis.
For how long the effect from Microneedling lasts?
Some clients see immediate results from skin needling; others notice improvement gradually over an eight week period, up to three months. Individual results vary as each body’s regeneration is unique.
Use of other skin treatments including vitamin A and C can help prevent loss of collagen. Most clients require multiple sessions to achieve desired results that generally can last years.
Is Microneedling Safe?
Needling, collagen induction is a minimally invasive procedure. Because nothing is injected, allergic reaction and side effects are nonexistent. With rapid healing, low downtime and simple aftercare, needling is an attractive solution for scars, stretch marks, and wrinkles for most people. Because the epidermis is left intact, the healing process is fast. The skin does not experience sun sensitivity, skin color loss, hyper-pigmentation or thinning of the skin. Standard care and cleanliness out of all that is required during healing.
Skin needling can treat sensitive areas that other treatments have to avoid, such as lower eyelids, neck, and in the back of the hands.
What is the Healing Process like?
The skin is red and swollen for a few days with a light scab covering the treated area. This happens with any skin penetration procedure. However, light cover-up makeup will conceal any marks, so a normal routine maybe continued. Other healing occurs within 4 to 5 days. Although some immediate improvement is noted, in a healing-dermis continues to smooth and tighten the skin to the next 6 to 9 months, as collagen is laid down in a smoother, more regular manner.
