Microneedling procedure is an excellent option for patients who want to improve the appearance of their skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Those who suffer from scarring from acne, previous surgeries, or fine lines and wrinkles can benefit from this product, which can be used as a preventative measure as well. For the purposes of this article, we’re going to talk about microneedling as a treatment option at our office, including who can benefit from it, what microneedling is used to treat, and how it works in practice.
What Is Microneedling, And How Does It Improve The Skin’s Appearance?
In a nutshell, it’s a minimally invasive procedure that involves carefully puncturing the top layers of skin with extremely fine needles. A few things can happen as a result of these micro-injuries. One of which is that it can stimulate the skin’s repair process and increase the production of collagen. Collagen is a protein that keeps the skin firm and luminous. They also aid in reducing cellular damage, such as the formation of scar tissue, through their actions.
Prior to any healing process, the body’s immune system disinfects the wounds to remove any debris. This increases blood flow, which in turn stimulates the growth of new tissue, and this is termed the inflammation phase. Developing new cells and blood vessels are given priority in the next stage and are all about rebuilding, remodeling, or replacing the wound with new tissues and blood vessels. This is the final step in the healing process.
Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, can be applied to any part of the body. However, it is most commonly applied to the face. The procedure is cost-effective, minimally invasive, and requires little to no recovery time. Our dermatologist’s make use of Rejuvapen, which is one the best microneedling equipment for this treatment. The Rejuvapen uses very tiny fine needles, which allows professionals to have perfect control of its use. This medical-grade precision micro-needling device will help your skin become firmer and recover its elasticity. It will remove the wrinkles and fine lines and improve the overall condition of your skin. Rejuvapen helps topical products penetrate the skin more easily.
Some people, however, opt for the at-home microneedling devices, which will usually dull quickly and may likely not penetrate the skin as deeply. As a result, the microneedling done at home won’t be as perfect as what you’d get from a dermatologist. Also, you have to consider the issue of equipment sterilization which our professional dermatologists will make sure to observe before placing any equipment on your skin. The Rejuvapen will be properly sterilized first before use. One of the disadvantages of doing this procedure at home is that you can get injuries, and that is why we suggest it is advisable to have your Microneedling treatment done by a professional.
Who is Microneedling For?
At its core, microneedling is a method of reshaping the skin. Using this product rejuvenates the skin by reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It also helps in removing skin imperfections like acne, acne scars—skin discoloration, among others.
Usually, the results of microneedling can be seen in less than a week for those who have considered microdermabrasion, but you don’t necessarily have to wait long to see results. People of all skin tones can benefit from microneedling. Skin pigmentation may be an issue but is still considered safe. Also, people with a history of laser hair removal have no reason to worry about the microneedling procedure. However, if a person has cold sores or fever blisters, they may not be advised to undergo microneedling. This is probably because of counteraction with medications.
Can You Combine Treatments?
Just microneedling can help your skin. In most cases, your dermatologist will recommend three treatments at monthly intervals. This will cover a period of three months to complete treatment. To that end, a microneedling procedure will yield better results if it is supplemented with a few chemical peels. This is because the microneedles open up micropores, and the peeling agent can then penetrate deeply into the layer of your skin. It is a safe procedure, and with these peels, the results are even better.
