Did you know that common skin complaints like scars and wrinkles can be addressed safely and effectively without the need for surgery? Micro-needling is increasing in popularity as people learn how it can help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as scars and other unwanted skin conditions. As a minimally-invasive technique, micro-needling also has the advantage of not requiring a lengthy downtime.
A Look at the Micro-Needling Procedure
During a micro-needling procedure, many tiny channels are created in the skin. This coaxes your body into gradually resurfacing your skin over a period of time. Although each micro-channel is virtually invisible to the naked eye, the process triggers a healing cascade that will prompt your skin into depositing fresh collagen and elastin into the treatment area. The result is smoother, healthier skin that regains much of its radiance and vitality.
Most patients choose to have multiple micro-needling sessions spaced out a set amount of time apart to allow enough time for their skin to properly heal. You will see cumulative results when you have multiple treatments performed.
Can Micro-Needling Benefit You?
Micro-needling may benefit you if you suffer from skin conditions like scars due to acne or injury, fine lines and wrinkles or rough skin texture. The treatment works very well in combination with other types of treatments. Topical solutions can better penetrate your skin by taking advantage of the many tiny channels formed during the procedure. Superior absorption leads to superior results. This also means less product needs to be applied, and your response time is shortened.
