In recent years, many new technologies have emerged to address issues related to ageing and its damaging effects on the skin. One effective technology that is growing in popularity is microneedling. Used for a variety of treatments, microneedling is a nonsurgical way of rejuvenating the skin.
While some have been skeptical about this groundbreaking technology due to their fear of needles, getting a better understanding of what microneedling is all about can help to dispel the myths surrounding it. By taking a closer look at microneedling, you can see if it is an option that will suit you and can take a step towards keeping your skin in optimal condition.
What is microneedling?
Microneedling, also referred to as collagen induction therapy, is a safe, new skin treatment which uses very small needles (no larger than 1.5 mm in diameter) to help with the body’s natural ability to produce collagen and elastin, two important compounds that work to give the skin its youthful appearance. In addition to this, substances like hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C serum and skin lightener allow for a deeper level of transformation and rejuvenation of the skin. Microneedling has also been used to make the skin thicker.
How does it help?
Microneedling helps with challenges related to ageing skin, skin tightening, collagen production, pore size reduction, skin texture improvement, stretch marks and scarring from acne. It can be applied to various areas of the body, including more sensitive areas that cannot be effectively treated using other remedies. Its pain free methods of treatment make it a great option for people who want to reap positive results without the need for the downtime that may be required with more invasive methods.
Treating your skin
Microneedling is a skin renewal treatment which can be used by many, including those with ethnic skin. Doctors and skin experts have even gone so far as to say that microneedling stops ageing in its tracks by preventing fine lines and wrinkles from appearing.
