Rejuvenate Your Skin With Microneedling
As we get older, our skin will likely begin to display several types of imperfection. These can take on the form of many common signs of ageing, including wrinkles, fine lines and age spots, and may even appear as a hangover from previously experienced skin conditions (acne scarring) or periods of rapid growth (stretch marks).
Microneedling is a non-surgical procedure that has been designed to address these regular areas of concern. It is a treatment that is largely used on the face but can be adapted to rejuvenate the skin all across the body. Those who undergo microneedling treatment often come away looking revitalised, feeling ready to take on the world much more confident and almost completely blemish-free.
How does microneedling work?
Otherwise known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling is often carried out by a dermaroller device consisting of several small, fine needles. When this device is rolled over the area of skin afflicted by wrinkles, scarring, stretch marks or hyperpigmentation, a large number of micro-injuries will be created. This sparks the body’s natural healing processes into action, triggering collagen production in order to leave the patient with firmer, brighter and more healthy-looking skin tissue.
What are the benefits of microneedling?
The beauty of microneedling is its versatility. As mentioned above, it can be used to minimise many typical signs of ageing and can be equally effective in the management of stretch marks and acne scars. It is also a minimally invasive procedure that promises very little downtime and instant recovery, meaning that those who book in for it can often return to their normal routine the very same day.
Does microneedling have any side effects?
Although largely safe, microneedling does carry with it the possibility of several side effects. One of the most common of these is week-long skin redness and light bleeding around the treatment area. Most people can use makeup to disguise this redness and such skin irritation will be minimised if you enlist the services of trusted dermatologists such as Dr Firas.
