Whether it’s age spots, wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage, or simple issues with the overall pigment of the skin, something must be done in order to get you back to a confident, happy version of yourself. After all, everyone deserves great-looking skin. One of the newest methods of improving skin’s texture and tone is by undergoing a microneedling procedure. As we age our bodies slowly reduce the production of collagen and elastin, which is responsible for wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, enlarged pores, and dry skin. But microneedling can help.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a skin procedure that has been in practice for roughly 20 years that has recently gained popularity. This procedure consists of running a device with pointed needles on all sides of it, over the facial skin. Through this action, microneedling stimulates your body’s natural healing response by growing fibroblast cells that trigger the production of collagen and elastin.
How Does It Work?
Microneedling works by stimulating the collagen in the face through activating your body’s self-healing protocols. The trauma caused by the needles stimulates a healing response and new collagen is produced to repair the trauma. Since the main cause of aging is a lack of this collagen and elastin that result in sagging and dry skin, as your skin heals it will take care of many of the issues that plague your face, including sun damage, signs of aging, and acne scars. The result is rejuvenated, younger looking skin.
Despite the many microneedling kits that are sold in stores and online, it’s best to have this procedure done by a medical professional. When you have an expert handle your microneedling, then you benefit through:
- Treated area is cleaner and more sanitary
- Reduced worry about “doing it wrong” or getting an infection
- A professional knows the proper way to conduct the procedure and has experience
Microneedling is something that sounds straightforward but it is not if you want it done properly, therefore it is better to have it completed in a clinical setting.
