Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is not a new treatment in the field of facial aesthetics and has become a popular choice among those wanting a rejuvenated appearance without the cost of laser skin resurfacing or other more advanced therapies.
Microneedling does indeed rejuvenate skin. It is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that is used to address skin concerns by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin that regenerate new, healthy skin cells. Instead of removing layers of skin with heat (as in laser skin treatments) or chemicals (such as chemical peels), microneedling creates microscopic “wounds” in the skin using an instrument containing dozens of very fine, short needles. This damage is not visible to the naked eye, but it triggers the body’s natural healing response by generating tighter, smoother and clearer skin.
In addition to skin rejuvenation, microneedling can be used to address surgical scars, stretch marks, rough patches & texture problems and lost elasticity. It’s worth noting, though, that if the skin is damaged, microneedling, or any other procedure, will not be able to make it look perfect again.
The main benefit of microneedling is the increased production of collagen to combat wrinkles and other signs of aging. Among its other benefits are:
• It is minimally invasive and considered safe for most people in overall good health.
• The new collagen makes skin look and feel smoother, tighter, and more youthful,
• It is convenient, with the total procedure taking around two hours.
• It is generally safe for all skin types, including darker skin, since it does not use chemicals or lasers.
• In most cases it involves no downtime.
• It does not require a post-treatment “peeling” period.
• It can help to reduce acne scarring because the needles are able to break down scar tissue and encourage new skin growth.
• It can help to reduce the visibility of stretch marks.
• It can also be used in certain anti-aging procedures, such as eyelid surgery and age spots.
• It is far more effective than at-home rollers, which may be more cost-effective initially but do not give the same results as a professional treatment.
In addition, preliminary studies have shown that microneedling can help in the promotion of hair growth and research is still ongoing.
Microneedling treatments are typically performed in a series of between four and six sessions, spaced about a month apart. At each subsequent session the needles are inserted a little deeper as the skin becomes thicker and more tolerant. Since everyone’s needs are different you will need to consult with a healthcare professional to decide which treatment plan would be best for you. The number of sessions will depend on the condition of your skin and the issue to be treated. As a rough estimate, fine lines and wrinkles might need two sessions a year, acne scars around three to four a year and burns or stretch marks may need five or six.
The results from microneedling can be seen almost immediately as the body responds to the “micro injuries” as soon as they occur, beginning the process of building new and rejuvenated skin.
