The idea came in the 1990s, and it officially started in 1995. It is known to be a multi-purpose treatment, that is rather safe and provides a long-term solution. Apart from the face, microneelding can be done all over the body. You’ll feel mild pain, and contrary to popular notion, it will be bearable. The major conditions that can be improved are skin damage from sun, skin aging, loose or lax skin, stretch marks, wrinkles and fine lines, acne scars, pore size, dormant hair follicles, as well as skin texture. When it comes to the treatment cost, it is $300 per month. Now, this might be expensive for some, however, the end results might offer you some permanent solutions.
The process involves the use of needles in order to puncture the hundreds of tiny holes that are found on the skin. Dermapen is a tool that contains tiny needles at the end. When the treatment starts, these needles make tiny holes at the topmost layer of the skin.
The main method of micro needling is done with the help of Derma Roller. It also contains needles of the same size and shape. It is gently rolled in multiple directions and produces similar results. The dermatologists use it for one or two purposes. The tiny ‘pinpricks’ that are formed as a result of this procedure, quickly heal the skin. Another benefit is that it escalates elastin and collagen production. As the little pores are formed, these allow various helpful skincare products to absorb into deeper layers and aid in the healing process.
Until your skin is healed, you need to keep it hydrated. For that purpose, you can use top quality moisturizers in order to calm the redness. Here, an important thing to note is that you need to avoid exploiters because you might get a reaction. Furthermore, you might also want to skip the workout session for just a little bit (2-3 days max!). It will cause you sweat, which will ultimately lead to skin irritation. Once the procedure is done, you’ll feel a plump less skin and the unmatched glow will definitely be worth it. For effective results, you can prefer the in-office treatments every other month.
With a spa facial, you might protect and freshen up your skin, but it will not be enough. Besides, it might also make the skin dry, or in severe cases cause scarring or irritation. Furthermore, spa facial cleanses, exfoliate, and massages the skin, however, it does not deeply treat the skin as micro-needling does. Another benefit of Microneedling is that it can be done on all skin types and that’s what makes it stand apart from the crowd. Therefore, micro needling is all you need to get that ‘flawless’ (we mean that!) skin.
There are no ‘as such’ risks, however, you must be careful and avoid one or two things. First, you have to make sure that your pimples are gone so that any chances of infection can be avoided. Secondly, if you are experiencing skin irritation or inflammation, then it is better to opt out of the process. Lastly, you have to be careful when applying harsh skincare products (for example, exfoliators), because these can also cause irritation.
Mentioned above are some of the reasons as to why micro needling is better than other surgical skin treatments. Those women, who want to pursue it can definitely go for it. All you need to do is consult a practiced dermatologist and then make a final decision!
