Micro needling is a procedure that has gained popularity in the cosmetic world. This is because micro needling is an effective procedure to address multiple skin issues, including acne, fine lines and wrinkles.
A person develops fine lines and wrinkles when the dermal layer of their skin begins to lose its elasticity. This loss of elasticity comes as a result of aging, excessive sun exposure, poor nutrition and smoking. Wrinkling usually happens first on the forehead and around the lips. This is because these are the parts of the face that are the most expressive and where the skin moves the most.
Micro needling addresses wrinkling because it stimulates collagen and elastin growth. These improve the thickness and smoothness of the skin. The treatment is also beneficial because it makes it easier for the skin to absorb skin care products. The human skin is designed as a barrier to prevent external contaminants from entering.
The problem with most topical skin care treatments is that they are not able to penetrate the external layer of skin. And so they sit on the outside and are never absorbed.
Micro needling opens small, quick-healing channels in the skin that allow skin care products to penetrate to the deeper layers of the skin and provide the desired results.
Another major skin problem that people face is acne and acne scars. Micro needling can help with this because it affects the area of the acne scars, which in turn causes the body’s healing process to kick in.
Research has shown that micro needling has been able to reduce the appearance of acne scars in some patients by up to as much as 70 percent. It can help reduce acne because it can manually clean out a person’s pores, which in turn leads to less acne.
Micro needling requires little to no downtime. It is a type of procedure that can be performed once a year and provides amazing results. Micro needling can be performed at different levels of the skin. It can be performed in just the area that needs to be treated, or it can be performed on the entire face, causing the entire face to look younger and more rejuvenated.
In addition to the above-mentioned conditions, micro needling is effective at dealing with stretch marks, hair loss, cellulite, sagging skin and a whole host of other conditions that affect the face or the body. Micro needling is a powerful tool that encourages the body to use its own healing power to make the skin firmer, smoother, clearer and healthier. In some cases patients also choose to have hydrafacial treatment.
