Microneedling is a treatment that you should consider if you are sick and tired of looking at enlarged pores in the mirror, if you suffer from hyperpigmentation, or if you have noticed your skin starting to sag. You do not need those uncomfortable laser treatments or invasive skin lifts just to enhance your appearance. You can use microneedling to improve a wide range of cosmetic imperfections. This extremely versatile treatment can smooth out and firm your skin without any discomfort of downtime.
So what exactly is microneedling? It is a unique derma roller treatment that involves the use of tiny needles that penetrate the skin. This treatment is designed to stimulate the natural collagen production process of the body. The microneedling results include a firm, smooth and evenly toned skin. It is commonly used for shrinking enlarged pores, treating wrinkles and reducing the appearance of acne scars on the face. Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling can also be used to smooth out and reduce uneven pigmentation of stretch marks.
So, how long does it take to see results from micro needling? The initial skin tightening as well as pore reduction can be seen immediately after the treatment is done. However, the final results of this anti aging treatment are seen after to six weeks. Both cellular turnover and collagen production are accelerated, but it takes your body some time to start producing new, strong and healthy collagen.
You are probably wondering if microneedling hurts. While it feels intimidating to have your skin punctured by needles, especially your face, the good news is that this treatment is not painful at all. The needles that are used are so fine.
