Treatments such as chemical peels, facials, and microdermabrasion help to restore a healthy glow. However, these treatments only affect the top layer of skin, and their effects are ephemeral. Micro-needling is a treatment that reaches deeper layers helping to improve various skin conditions.
The process of microneedling entails puncturing the skin using tiny needles to levels between 0.25mm and 2.5mm. However, there’s no need to worry about pain with this treatment. You are numbed with topical lidocaine before getting started, so you don’t feel a thing! The needles reach into the epidermis and the superficial dermis layers where they trigger the production of collagen, tightening the skin, removing scars, and improving wrinkles. Apart from causing the production of collagen, the micro-injuries created by the needles also heal quickly hence they give quick, desirable results within a few weeks after treatment.
Micro-needling is very effective in improving the following skin conditions:
Among other things, this treatment helps to reduce acne scarring and to soften lines and wrinkles caused by aging. The rejuvenation process also improves skin texture and can be combined with serum penetration to help with stretch marks. The number of sessions and the period of treatment with micro-needling depend on the skin condition being treated. The side effects of treatment are minimal such as redness, but it subsides within 24-48 hours after treatment.
Micro-needling has the following advantages over other forms of skin treatment:
