Skin problems are among the most common types of cosmetic complaints. The skin, especially in the facial area, is very prominent and one of the most reliable indicators of overall health. The skin is our body’s largest organ and often the most neglected. One commonly reported type of skin problem is skin that has a rough texture or has become dull and dry. The good news is that there are a wide range of treatment options for this type of skin problem. New therapies have been developed that many patients are unfamiliar with and could benefit from. Microneedling is one such treatment.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling may sound like an exotic or unusual type of skin treatment, but it is actually rooted in sound science. This safe and effective skin rejuvenation procedure involves the use of a hand-held device coated with many tiny needles being passed over the surface of the skin. It causes many micro-openings that trigger your own body into resurfacing your skin.
Although these tiny channels are normally invisible to the naked eye, they trigger your body into replacing old, dull skin cells with smoother, more youthful ones. As your skin heals itself, it begins depositing fresh collagen to the site and the surrounding area.
Microneedling has been found to rejuvenate the skin by minimizing the signs of aging and scars due to acne or trauma. It can foster the development of smoother, more radiant skin.
A microneedling procedure is quite simple. We roll the device gently over your skin in a series of passes. Each pass of the device creates micro-channels in your skin. Over the course of the following days and weeks, your body will respond by resurfacing your skin.
You will most likely benefit from multiple microneedling treatments, as the improvements are cumulative. You will need to wait a certain amount of time between treatments to give your skin time to heal completely. With each microneedling session, your skin should continue to show improvement. You will notice an improvement in your skin texture. Your skin will be smoother and more radiant after your series of treatments.
Microneedling works very well in conjunction with the application of topical agents because of the micro-channels created in the skin during the treatment. These channels allow topical solutions, gels, and creams to better penetrate the surface of your skin, greatly enhancing their effectiveness. This is why the treatment is often combined with PRP.
