Micro-needling sounds like the newest trend in the beauty industry, but it has been used for over 50 years. It is a process that entails the use of tiny micro-needles to puncture hundreds of tiny openings in the skin. It is a simple procedure that stimulates the natural process of healing wounds. The result is that there is cell turnover and an increase in the production of collagen and elastin. As a beauty regimen, it reverses the signs of aging, making the skin look youthful.
What are the Benefits?
Using this amazing treatment, a skin care specialist creates some small holes in the skin to allow skin care products to penetrate deeper into the skin later. Only about eight percent of the skin care products penetrate the skin. Through micro-needling, a patient can make it more effective for the products to find their way deeper into the skin. The deeper they infiltrate the skin, the more pronounced the results, allowing you to reap full benefits from beauty and skin care products.
The process improves the appearance of fine lines, scars, wrinkles, and pores. Successful completion of micro-needling reverses pigmentation and sun damage. By stimulating the growth of collagen, the process reverses discoloration and sun damage. It has been found to be an effective treatment for facial pigmentation that can sometimes be chronic. For the results to be visible, a series of treatment sessions is usually required.
