Microneedling is an excellent treatment which resurfaces the skin without laser or surgery and minimal downtime. Microneedling is a procedure which involves using fine needles to create hundreds of tiny invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of the skin. These tiny puncture wounds trigger the body's natural healing response to heal these holes, in turn naturally producing collagen and elastin to tighten and improve the skins texture.
What Can I Expect Post A Microneedling Treatment?
The inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short and fades significantly within hours from redness to pinkness that may last for 12 to 48 hours. In order to reduce visible redness, we recommend hyaluronic acid after the procedure and to protect the skin with zinc-based sunblock (though sunscreen of some kind is a must every day!).
What Benefits Does Microneedling Have On The Skin?
Microneedling improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of scars. It also stimulates tissue regeneration, making it a great treatment for scars (especially acne scars), as new collagen fibers elevate the depressed scar tissue in line with the peripheral skin. This procedure provides a smoother texture and reduces scarring after just a few treatments. It is ideal to reduce signs of aging, acne scarring, and pigmentation. As microneedling is suitable for any part of the body and all skin types, it can be used to reduce stretch marks and cellulite also.
What Should I Avoid On My Skin After Treatment?
To ensure the right healing environment, for 2-3 days do not use AHAs (glycolic acid), retinol, acidic, or active ingredients. Exposure to sun should also be avoided, zinc-based sunblock should be used.
What Is The Compound Applied To The Skin?
The compound applied to the skin is hyaluronic acid, which moisturizes the skin, restores its internal environment, and helps maintain natural functions in the skin. Vitamins and inorganic salts improve microcirculation, cellular respiration, and nutrient exchange. It also contains amino acids which are the building blocks for synthesis of protein structures inside existing cells, as well as for creation of new cells. It also stimulates the activity of fibroblasts and myofibroblasts, promoting growth of new cells.
