New Year, New Skin with Microneedling
It is natural in January to look to make changes to your life style for your own self improvement, whether that be at work, in your personal relationships or physical and mental health. Common resolutions focus on diet, exercise, and overall well being, but what seems strange that in the quest for betterment, the skin often ends up neglected.
What is Microneedling?
For a variety of skin concerns, Dr Firas recommends microneedling for a complete skin rejuvenation. Capable of tackling fine lines, blemishes, stretch marks, pigmentation and acne scarring, microneedling serves to boost the levels of collagen within the skin. Collagen is an essential protein for skin repair, but as we age, our body becomes less capable of producing any, and eventually ceases to make any at all. This leaves the skin less capable of repairing itself, which is when we start to see a number of skin concerns occur. Microneedling, also known as skin needling or collagen induction therapy, can help smooth and brighten the skin, providing a boost to skin health and contributing towards a more youthful, glowing complexion.
How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling is renowned for its extraordinary capability to utilise the skin’s natural defenses rather than an injectable substance. During the procedure, very tiny, fine needles are used to create hundreds of invisible punctures to the skin. This triggers your body’s healing response, as it considers the puncture to be a wound. As we know, collagen is utilised in skin repair, and so the production of this protein is boosted by the treatment. Your body will need some time to replenish collagen reserves, but within a few weeks, patients can expect to see a marked improvement in their skin health.
