Microneedling is a beauty technique, where you use very fine needles to puncture the dermis layer of the skin, to stimulate collagen growth. This process helps in repairing lesions from acne, scarring and stretch marks. It’s also said to help different skin concerns such as psoriasis and eczema.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a treatment that involves the use of a hand-held tool, which features at least 200 tiny micro needles on the head. You’re then supposed to lightly push down on these needles against the skin in order to create microscopic wounds in order for topical medicines or other treatments to be absorbed into the skin tissue more efficiently.
The injury sites created by the microneedling tool then heal with increased collagen production and new skin growth, and once you’ve fully learnt about the technique, it’s something you can do yourself at home, providing you have a high quality, safe microneedling tool to use.
What are the Benefits of Microneedling?
Microneedling is a procedure that uses the process of controlled and controlled pressure to create a series of microscopic wounds in the skin. This procedure stimulates collagen production and attracts new blood vessels, which in turn speeds up the healing process.
Microneedling has been shown to improve skin elasticity, reduce wrinkles and skin discolouration, and increase hydration levels in the skin. It also helps stimulate collagen production and increase blood flow in the dermis under treatment. It is important that you understand all possible benefits of microneedling before getting it done at a dermatologist’s office or elsewhere.
Are There Any Risks With Microneedling?
Microneedling is a non-invasive procedure that uses a device with small needles to puncture the skin and increase blood flow. It is typically used for cosmetic purposes, such as wrinkle reduction and acne scarring.
There are no risks associated with microneedling, but it should not be used for medical reasons without consulting a doctor because there are some complications that can occur from the puncture sites, if the process isn’t done correctly, or if you’re using a microneedling tool which hasn’t been fully sanitised. So, always ensure you’re using a high-quality tool, or if you don’t feel comfortable doing microneedling at home, see a dermatologist, whom will be able to do it for you in a professional setting.
