How does microneedling work?
Microneedling increases the production of collagen and other healing factors by causing trauma to the skin.
Collagen is an essential protein that helps keep the skin looking youthful, with a firm, smooth, and stretchy texture.
Aging causes the decline of collagen in the skin, contributing to wrinkles and other signs of aging.
Skin can also lose collagen due to injuries, such as acne scarring, stretch marks, or other scars.
It is important to realize that microneedling is not a quick fix, as it involves the growth of new skin. It can take several months for a person to see the full results of the procedure.
What are the benefits?
Microneedling is a safe and effective way to rejuvenate skin and treat scars and wrinkles.
The researchers acknowledged, however, that determining whether microneedling is a viable treatment option in all cases will require further research.
People can expect a reduction in the “appearance of large pores, fine lines and wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks.”
Microneedling is generally a safe and effective procedure that can improve the appearance of the skin. It may reduce wrinkles, diminish scarring, and tighten or rejuvenate loose or aging skin.
While home microneedling is widely accessible and more comfortable than the professional version, home treatments will not provide the same results and may increase the risk of side effects.
Anyone interested in microneedling should consult a professional who is specially trained and experienced in these types of procedures.
