Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin treatment that promotes collagen formation and your body’s natural capacity to repair wounds. The knowledgeable medical staff at Dixi’s Medispa provides microneedling treatments to improve the health of your skin and correct several aging-related skin problems.
Microneedling is a safe and effective procedure and can treat several skin issues. If you are suffering from any of the below-mentioned skin issues, you may want to think about microneedling:
- enlarged pores
- creases or wrinkles
- loose or crepey skin that is thin and wrinkled
- Mild scars, notably those brought on by burns or acne
- uneven skin tone or skin hyperpigmentation
After only one treatment, microneedling helps your skin glow and keeps improving the look of your skin for months. Here are our top five arguments for undergoing an excellent cosmetic procedure:
Enhances the formation of collagen.
The dermis, the middle layer of skin underneath the epidermis, contains collagen as its primary structural protein. Collagen is found in a variety of connective tissues. The extracellular matrix, made up of collagen and elastin fibers embedded in hyaluronan and proteoglycans, is a structure that the connective tissue of the dermis uses to support and elasticize the skin.
Collagen is stimulated through microneedling, also known as collagen induction treatment. A protein called collagen keeps your skin firm and elastic. As you age, your body creates less collagen, which results in wrinkles and fine lines on your skin.
The wonderful thing about microneedling is that it causes microscopic tears on the skin’s surface, which start your skin’s natural healing process, thereby increasing collagen formation.
Minimize the appearance of wrinkles.
Your skin might develop lines known as wrinkles. They are a typical outcome of the aging process in your body. Your skin’s creases resemble those on a garment that needs to be ironed. They resemble ridges, folds, or wrinkles. Wrinkles can appear everywhere on your body, but they are most frequently found on your face, neck, and arms.
Everyone ages and develops wrinkles. You can be more susceptible to developing wrinkles early in life if:
- You either have sun-damaged skin or constantly expose your skin to the sun.
- You use tobacco to smoke.
- Collagen is lost.
With microneedling, the lost collagen will be produced by your body, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles on your skin. New connective tissue is created due to increased collagen and elastin synthesis. Your skin becomes thicker and plumper after microneedling. You get more volume and strength, which smooths out your creases and wrinkles and makes the years vanish.
It evens out the skin tone.
Since sunlight first stimulates the formation of melanin, exposure to the sun is the leading cause of hyperpigmentation. People get tanned skin in the sun because melanin is the skin’s natural sunscreen, shielding you from damaging UV radiation. Hyperpigmentation, however, can result from excessive sun exposure, which can disrupt this process.
By dissolving the pigment beneath the skin’s surface, microneedling can reduce this hyperpigmentation. Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy (CID), is a simple procedure that can help the skin without removing or harming the epidermis. Your skin tone will balance out after several sessions and the use of skin-lightening products.
Microneedling may break up the pigment, encourage the creation of new cells, and get your skin back to how it was before UV damage!
It improves scarring.
You are not alone if you have acne! The most typical skin issue in the world is acne. Between the ages of 11 and 30, 80% of people are affected by this.
Inflammation of acne lesions leads to acne scars. The pore wall breaks down, causing the acne pore to expand. Some acne lesions are tiny, leaving superficial scars that heal quickly. Blemishes may drain their contents into the surrounding tissue, leaving deeper scarring. To treat the scar, the skin produces new collagen fibers.
Consider microneedling if you have acne scars since it can speed up your skin’s healing process and lessen the appearance of acne scars. Your skin’s general appearance and texture can be enhanced by microneedling, giving it a smoother appearance and feel.
It triggers the body’s natural healing response.
Your skin, the biggest organ in your body, protects you from injuries, harmful UV radiation, and infections. The fact that skin regenerates every 27 days is one of the great truths most people don’t know about their skin. However, structural changes brought on by aging make you seem less youthful and fresh.
Your body reacts quickly to a wounded finger by sending specialized cells to halt the bleeding and start the healing process. With microneedling, the same healing response is induced by making tiny incisions in the top layer of your skin.
Your skin is not harmed by microneedling since the wounds are so minor. Even if you don’t have injuries, your body nevertheless reacts as though you have. New cells are produced, revitalizing your look.
What to expect from a microneedling treatment?
It’s normal to have specific adverse effects after a microneedling session. Your skin may be flushed or bright red after the treatment, giving the impression that you have had a mild to moderate sunburn all day.
Up to 48 hours following treatment, swelling and partial skin peeling are all regarded as typical. Bumps, acne, and dry skin are a few more adverse effects you could have following microneedling, though not everyone will. The negative effects can be minimized by taking good care of your skin with moisturizers and mild cleansers.
The results of your treatment might be significantly affected by how well you take care of your skin following microneedling. In addition to relieving your symptoms, good aftercare will shield your skin from harm as it recovers. Don’t hesitate to ask questions before and after your session, and adhere as carefully as possible to any directions your healthcare provider gives.
