How Microneedling Can Benefit Every Skin…
If you’re finding your beloved beauty products aren’t giving you the hit of brightness you’ve been looking for in your skin, then why not try microneedling?
The hard-working treatment can sort everything from large pores to the first signs of wrinkles and the best part is that this non-invasive skin treatment requires hardly any downtime!
The procedure involves using tiny needles to cause micro-injuries to the skin, stimulating the fibroblast cells to heal the skin. These needles can be mounted on a roller, stamp or electronic pen such as dermapen, which offers superior treatment as it is spring-loaded and therefore risks zero damage to the skin. Depending on your skin type, the only downtime will be a little bit of redness for a day or two.
Microneedling has a number of benefits for your skin including the generation of new collagen so your skin feels tighter, smoother and softer. This results in fewer visible fine lines and a reduction in the appearance of scarring and pores. It may take a few sessions to experience long-term benefits, but after one treatment your skin should instantly appear brighter.
While microneedling can be used on most skin types, it is not suitable for people with an active skin infection such as acne, eczema, rosacea, or perioral dermatitis and it is a great treatment for darker skin types as it reduces the risk of post-inflammatory pigmentation.
In recent years, there have been many at-home microneedling devices launched in the market and while they will not penetrate as deeply into the skin, they can aid superficial penetration of products. But be warned, if the device is not reputable, it could cause long-term scarring and skin damage.
