The skin is one of the most resilient components of the body. It’s designed to act as living armor that protects our internal organs from bacteria, viruses, weather, ultraviolet rays and other potentially harmful components. The problem is that our skin will eventually sustain damage that can leave it looking dull, loose and aged. This can have a profoundly negative impact upon your overall appearance. This problem is further compounded by the fact that, until recently, the best treatments for aged skin involved surgery and other invasive procedures. There was no simple solution for minor to moderate skin degeneration.
Micro-needling represents one of the most incredible advancements for skin beauty. It can effectively reverse a significant portion of damage to the skin, which can leave your once dull skin looking rejuvenated and more youthful.
What is Micro-Needling?
Micro-needling is a form of very precise cell destruction. It aims to safely destroy the imperfect cells that lead to dull, sagging skin. This can include everything from worn and damaged skin to minor imperfections that exist as discolorations in the skin.
It accomplishes this destruction by penetrating the skin to a certain depth. This prevents wounds from forming, but does allow for the creation of many tiny micro-channels in the skin. This leads to the body invoking the rejuvenation process, which allows for more desirable skin to form.
Once the body has created new, healthier cells to replace the old ones, your skin tends to look and feel more youthful. Even minor imperfections like fine lines can be fixed by a simple micro-needling treatment.
Would It Benefit You?
Micro-needling is a state-of-the-art treatment for the skin. It exists as the next step in dermabrasion, which means that it is both safer and more convenient than other forms of selective cell destruction.
The average person experiencing mild to moderate skin degeneration will generally see marked improvements in the quality of their skin after undergoing micro-needling treatments. An immediate improvement may be seen after the first treatment, but the majority of the improvements will occur as the body creates new skin cells. This allows micro-needling to make the skin look clearer, appear more youthful and feel more attractive without the risk of scarring, swelling, inflammation and other undesirable side effects that tend to be commonplace with traditional dermatological procedures.
