Radiant younger skin without a single spot is a dream for all women. The firmness of the skin depends on the presence of collagen, which holds skin cells together. However, some research claims that after 25, the production of collagen begins to decline. The process is prolonged, but symptoms such as fine lines, freckles and spots start to appear on the skin after 30. Although it is impossible to stop ageing, we can delay it for a longer time with advanced technologies.
Earlier, women used various natural methods, medicines and creams to prevent skin ageing, but over time, new technologies like micro-needling, Botox, facial surgeries and skin lifts have replaced the traditional methods. Micro-needling is the most popular among all the procedures as it gives the most promising results.
Micro-needling helps in improving skin texture, reduces wrinkles and tightens ageing skin. Now you must be wondering how this process is done?
To get answers to your questions, please read on.
How is micro-needling performed?
Micro-Needling is basically a cosmetic procedure where a small derma roller with multiple needles is rolled over your skin. These needles pierce your skin to encourage new collagen and skin tissue production, resulting in tighter and smoother skin. This procedure is also known as ‘collagen induction therapy. It is particularly used on the face, where it helps treat wrinkles, large pores, and scars.
How does micro-needling work?
As mentioned earlier, the main idea is to prick the skin with needles, which stimulates your skin to produce more collagen to heal the skin, and as a result, you get firmer and smoother skin.
Is micro-needling safe for all women?
Micro-Needling does not usually have any severe side effects, but it is not suitable for women with health problems and pregnant women. Women with mild acne are also not ideal for this treatment as it could cause more damage to their skin.
How much time and money are needed to perform this treatment?
This is a short treatment and takes about 30 minutes for a single treatment. However, you will not get the results in just one treatment, so you will need to repeat this for 3 to 4 sessions, and it would cost you $100 to $200 per session.
What can you expect after the treatment?
Since this procedure is a needle prick, you will feel redness, irritation and itching around your skin. After the procedure, your skin will become sensitive, so you will need to take extra care of it by avoiding the sun or using sunscreen. You may also experience bleeding, infection, bruising and peeling.
However, if you are pregnant or have a skin condition such as eczema or open wounds, you are definitely not a suitable candidate for this procedure.
Wrapping it up
Micro-needling helps you rejuvenate your skin and can be done at home, but it is recommended to seek professional help to perform the process. If you have overall good health and no skin problems, you should go for this technology and confuse others with your real age as no one can guess your actual age. So yes, micro-needling does help in skin rejenuvating.
