At times it gets quite difficult to keep up with the ever-evolving skincare industry. You might be thinking to yourself, there are new skincare techniques available at spas and clinics that you haven’t even heard of. While we talk about other skincare techniques in other blogs, let’s first talk about microneedling which has been the hot gossip for the last two years and growing. Microneedling is also referred to as derma rolling. In a nutshell, microneedling for collagen induction is what it’s famous for.
Microneedling can be very alarming because piercing your face with needles doesn’t seem like much of a healthy idea – but in fact it is!
It is a lot less intense and terrifying than the name suggests. Microneedling does puncture the surface layer of the skin but it uses a group of very tiny needles so the puncture is micro and not clearly visible through naked eyes. Unlike acupuncture, these fine needles roll through your skin and are not inserted or placed into your skin. This sounds like it would be painful, rolling a bunch of needles on your face, but in fact, it is not and most people find it soothing, and then it all comes down to the needle size you’re using and your skin concern.
Microneedling benefits – microneedling for collagen induction
Even though this doesn’t hurt as much as it scares people, you must be wondering what would compel someone to roll over a bunch of needles on their face right? Well, the benefits of microneedling are the main reason they do that and once you hear about it, you’ll be convinced you need that too. There are fewer products in the skincare industry that targets multiple problems at once while microneedling does just that. From hyperpigmentation to anti-aging to scars microneedling is your go-to option. Here are some of the skincare conditions that may benefit from the microneedling technique:
As we age, the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and thinning of the skin becomes more and more visible. This happens due to a decrease in collagen and other skin’s fundamental building blocks. This loss occurs naturally as we age but there’s one thing that can slow it down and that is microneedling. Since collagen is reduced as we age, microneedling for collagen induction is something that helps slow down the process. In addition to microneedling increasing the absorption of anti-aging products, it also stimulates collagen production that results in giving you smooth skin.
Scars and Stretch Marks:
Microneedling with its micro punctures on the skin helps reduce scars and stretch marks which most topical treatments don’t. Although people with keloid scars, dome-shaped raised scars are not recommended to use microneedling all other types of closed scars can benefit from this amazing process. Microneedling can help break down stretchmark tissue, the skin markings which appear as a result of rapid growth and fade their appearance over time with multiple treatments.
Skin Tone and Pores
While you roll a bunch of microneedles on your skin and thinking whether it may help your skin or not, you should know it aids in improving the overall tone and texture of your skin and reduces pores too. Discoloration and hyperpigmentation are the main reasons people have been using microneedling nowadays and this is something that goes along best with vitamin c for a rapid decrease in hyperpigmentation and acne scars.
