Micro-Needling: Wounds That Heal The Skin

Micro-needling is a cosmetic skin treatment that addresses various skin issues like acne scars, hair loss, hyperpigmentation, textured skin, enlarged pores, stretch marks, reduced skin elasticity, sun damage, aging signs, etc. A versatile solution for multiple skin imperfections, micro-needling has gained immense popularity in the aesthetic market due to its effectiveness in eliminating skin problems. Oil, dirt, pollution, dead skin cells, and constant exposure to the sun, on top of poor and irregular eating, sleeping, and working habits, have taken an evident toll on our skins. Basic level skincare cannot help with already-developed skin issues. We need an additional way to resolve and eliminate these issues to unveil a smoother, clearer, youthful, and brighter skin. 

How Does Micro-Needling Solve Skin Issues?

Microneedling is a non-surgical and minimally invasive skin treatment. It works by making micro-injuries into the surface of the skin at a certain depth. These micro-injuries are too tiny to hurt, but they hold a not-so-tiny effect. The micro-wounds stimulate the body’s natural healing response. This response activates the cells to increase the production of collagen in the skin. Collagen is essential for skin texture, tone, and elasticity. It gives our skin the volume, plumpness, and freshness that it needs to look youthful and energetic. With age and constant changes in human physiology, natural collagen production decreases over time. This causes some adverse effects in the form of skin laxity, reduced elasticity, and volume loss. 

The lack of volume and firmness in the skin makes it prone to additional skin issues such as sagging skin, creases, folds, droopy lids, poor texture, uneven tone, etc. However, we can now deal with all these imperfections that make you look tired, dull, and old, with the undeniably visible results of micro-needling. Commonly thought of as a scar reduction solution, micro-needling plays a vital role in clarifying, firming, and smoothening the skin surface. Since it is an effective way to revive the lost collagen production in the body, it is also called collagen induction therapy. Additionally, your skin regenerates itself and creates new cells by healing the wounds. The increase in collagen levels also contributes to a youthful look and reduces wrinkles.

Microneedling for Scars: Manifold Benefits and Uses

From the upper-mentioned facts, we can understand that microneedling holds proven benefits. It not only reduces scars and blemishes but deals with various skin problems, all the while reducing aging signs. This procedure can change the way you look and feel. So if you want to get rid of wrinkles and rev up your complexion without any downtime, micro-needling can be your ultimate best friend. 

Usually, cosmetic treatments are aggressively invasive and require a long recovery time. But with micro-needling, you just have to deal with mild side effects such as redness and bruising, but these subside within a few hours. The results are almost immediate with increased improvement over time. Following are some of the additional reasons to consider micro-needling for your skin concerns:

Slows Down Aging

None of us want to age and look old. This desire is natural because we want to look beautiful and physically attractive. Thus, we use multiple anti-aging products to delay aging signs for as long as possible. However, aging signs such as wrinkles, fine lines, and skin folds are like unwelcomed guests that feel no shame and arrive uninvited. But with the anti-aging benefits of micro-needling, we can delay severe wrinkles and aging signs for a longer period. Collagen production makes this easy and helps combat wrinkles as they appear. 

Microneedling slows down aging by increasing collagen and elastin production that naturally occurs, and so the results are also long-lasting. Moreover, it improves the effectiveness of anti-aging creams and lotions.

Reduces Scarring

If you now have to deal with stubborn and permanent skin scarring due to acne, micro-needling is your ultimate savior. This treatment promotes the formation of new skin cells, regenerates the dermis layer, and accelerates healing. At the same time, it breaks down old scar tissue and eliminates the scars and textured skin appearance. 

Compared to other types of treatments, it’s cheaper and delivers faster results. Microneedling involves a lower risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation since it is minimally invasive, and the micro-injuries heal quickly. 

Helps Even Out Skin Tone

This cosmetic procedure is an effective solution for dark spots, age spots, etc. The dermis layer regenerates, and the existing skin texture and dark patches fall off with the damaged skin layer. For instance, hyperpigmentation occurs when your skin cells produce melanin in excess. This results in a dark complexion and spots. Microneedling regulates melanin levels by positively influencing cellular functioning. At the same time, it helps your skin absorb the ingredients from beauty products for better results. Another benefit is its safety range for all skin types.
