Skin care is constantly developing and changing to provide you with the benefits of scientific research in order to improve the skin’s health. From oils to serums, one of the key desires of skincare is to provide anti-aging benefits. One of the latest trends in the beauty industry for the improvement of the skin is micro-needling.
Micro-needling is the latest way to get more youthful looking skin by using microtrauma in a targeted way, triggering the healing response in the skin and promoting increased collagen and elastin formation. A medical professional will use an automated medical device to create tiny channels in the top layer of the skin. The device contains many tiny points to penetrate the top layer of the skin and force it to use its healing response to rejuvenate the skin.
There are many benefits that come as a result of using micro-needling treatments. Many people are excited about how it improves the overall texture of the skin while also reducing the appearance of aging. One of the main benefits of micro-needling is that it is a low-key treatment. It does not involve hours spent at the doctor’s office and there is almost no downtime after the treatment. The whole treatment lasts only a matter of minutes. Then the dermatologist will continue the treatment with a soothing serum or hydrating mask.
Another huge benefit of micro-needling is that the appearance of the skin improves immediately, giving you a soft and youthful glow. The treatment helps improve a variety of skin concerns like fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven texture. You will notice an immediate improvement that will last. This is because the tiny pinpricks encourage the skin to create new collagen, helping the skin look and feel plump.
This treatment can also help reduce scarring or acne marks. When you have scarring, your body uses fibrosis to help everything stick together. However, micro-needling helps break down the scar tissue and fibrosis beneath the first layer of skin, helping your skin create a smoother surface. It also helps treat cystic acne because it reduces oil production on the skin. This happens because micro-needling creates a mild exfoliation, helping the skin remove dead skin cells that linger on the surface of the epidermis. This will help the skin look fresh and feel smooth immediately.
