How Can Micro Needling Give Your Skin a Youthful Appearance?

Micro Needling in Kendall

Micro-Needling is a radical medical cosmetic treatment that’s a child or Collagen induction Therapy. This procedure can be carried out in a clinic in addition to home care treatments. This new skin care treatment is gaining in popularity mainly because of the fact that it shows results so quickly. While it is safe overall, it is necessary to understand what is involved and who can be a suitable candidate for it. It is important to consult with a professional before undergoing this procedure.

Some people refer to Micro Needling as Skin Needling, and Collagen induction Therapy (CIT). It involves using a hand-held skin roller which has multiple, fine-pointed needles on the surface of your skin. This skin needling roller has needles from 1mm – 3mm in length and the micro punctures penetrate only the topmost layer of your skin. This action activates the skin’s natural wound healing process by creating small punctures in the skin that help to create collagen and elastin.

The small puncture wound stimulates collagen in the epidermis layer and breaks some of the blood vessels directly under the surface of the skin. Since the blood will clot, this creates the development and production of collagen and elastin. It’s these which critical elements with your skin and pores to show revitalized.

This may sound a little drastic. However, the microneedle therapy technique occurs on a microscopic degree. The outward trauma effect is negligible for those with sensitive skin, you may want to use a numbing product on your skin before your microneedle therapy to minimize any uneasiness.

Micro Needling Benefits

Micro Needling can be performed on skin of all types and colors, even sensitive skin. You will obtain thicker, tighter and smoother skin young, thickening increased blood flow to areas of poor healing, minimized appearance of scars (including acne and surgical scars) as well as fine lines and wrinkles, and thickening increased penetration or lotions, serums, and moisturizers. Additional outcomes can have minimized stretch marks and hair loss. Skin needling can be repeated every 6-8 weeks as long as the epidermis is healed; best of all, collagen formation can continuously for up to 12 months after one treatment.

Wrinkles, scars, uneven skin tone and stretch marks are all a result of lower levels of collagen in the skin. If the human body had the capacity to produce extra collagen, these would not appear on your skin at all. But, the fact is that as you grow older the body loses its capacity to produce collagen. Thus, producing fine lines and wrinkles on your skin.

Micro-needling is one way of giving nature a helping hand to rejuvenate your skin. It creates hundreds of microscopic channels and encourages collagen production. This helps in reducing the appearance of wrinkles and other skin imperfections. Consistent use of this treatment also prevents them from reappearing.
