The many kinds of beauty treatments available today make it difficult to decide which one is best for you or which one will address your particular skin issues. Micro-needling is one beauty treatment that is able to address a bunch of different skin problems in one go. Safe and effective, micro-needling is no fad treatment. It has been around for years because it has proven results. To learn what this treatment can do for you, we’ve put together this helpful guide that explains the procedure and its many benefits!
How Micro-Needling Works
Micro-needling is a treatment that doesn’t rely on chemicals, lasers, or fillers in order to rejuvenate your skin. What it does use is the power of your body’s healing ability to vastly improve the state of your skin. The treatment uses a device known as the Eclipse MicroPen®. This tool is made up of tiny, medical-grade needles. When the MicroPen® is moved over your skin, it leaves behind microscopic channels that can’t be seen by the human eye.
The purpose of these channels is to basically trick your body into beginning the healing process. Recognizing the channels as microtraumas, your body will begin producing new collagen, will rush white blood cells to the area, and will heal the surround cells and tissue.
This is a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment with no down time. You may experience some redness, swelling, and tenderness, but that should abate within 24 hours. The number of treatments will depend on your desired results, but we usually recommend around four to six treatments.
To begin, micro-needling can help reverse all that damage your skin has suffered due to stress, exposure to the sun, and all those nights you skipped out on moisturizer. The treatment buffs away the unhealthy skin cells on the top layers of your skin so that new, healthy cells can grow in their place. You will notice a brighter complexion, smoother skin, and less skin laxity after your treatment.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Micro-needling can also help address the signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles. One of reason you develop wrinkles as you age is because that your skin stops producing that much-needed collagen, which is what gives your skin that plump look. This treatment jumpstarts collagen production in your skin, and the result is that fine lines and wrinkles are diminished.
