What is Microneedling?
Every dermatologist will talk about the benefits of microneedling.
The minimally invasive treatment can be used all over the body, from scalp to ankles. Microneedling improves the appearance of scars , boosts collagen, encourages hair growth.
It is the standard treatment for fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage and stretch marks.
The practise dates back to 1995 but has gained significant traction in recent years thanks to new technology.
Microneedling creates microscopic punctures in the skin.
Simply put, microneedling is the insertion of very short fine sterilized needles into the skin for rejuvenation. When the skin feels these pinpricks your body will naturally rush to heal them, resulting in a plumped up, more youthful appearance.
The device comprises of micro needles that range from a diameter from 0.5 and 2.5 millimetres. If the prospect of multiple needles sounds slightly ominous to you, know that the punctures are more like pin pricks that only enter at surface level.
Microneedling offers fairly immediate results
From microneedling alone, you will look plump, pink and luminous for a couple of weeks. Many people benefit from regular treatments.
According to a 2008 study, skin treated with four microneedling sessions spaced a month apart produced up to 400% increase in collagen and elastin a few months after completing treatment.
How will you know it’s working?
Marks will appear less noticeable; wrinkles will be finer and your skins quality will be over all healthier. It rejuvenates the skin while preserving epidermal integrity.
