Have you ever heard about microneedling? If you are looking for a minimal invasive way to improve your skin quality, you might want to know more about it. Dermatologists used it for decades to treat facial scars, and now the same procedure is being used as a beauty treatment.
Microneedling is used to bright up the skin, reducing scarring and pore size, as well as fine lines and wrinkles. The device used contains tiny, shallow needles which essentially poke holes in the skin surface. Those holes are a “micro injury”, which prompts skin to stimulate collagen production, filling in fine lines. The result is a younger-looking skin.
In spite of the needles, the treatment is not as painful as it sounds, especially because a anesthetic cream is applied to the patient’s skin to keep them comfortable. The treatment is very good for sunken areas like the ones caused by acne or chickenpox, for example. Also works great on fine lines, discoloration and general skin rejuvenation.
Don’t try microneedling treatment at home
There are devices for you to have microneedling at home, but professionals on the area don’t recommend trying this, because the risks of infection and scarring are huge. Besides, the needles on these devices are bigger, which make them more painful and increases the chances of infection.
