The Magic Of Microneedling Because Spa Facials Are Old News!
  • All across the globe, there are many women who suffer from a number of skin problems and aspire to ‘rejuvenate’ their skin. For this purpose, they mostly prefer proper skin care treatment or surgical procedures.
  • The main objective is to take care of the scars and pores as well as boost the collagen levels in the skin. The popular ones in the category are Spa Facials, Fraxel Laser Resurfacing, IPL Photorejuvenation, Botox Injections, and Microdermabrasion. However, during the recent times, Micro-needling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) has gained quite significant popularity. There are quite a few (and convincing!) reasons for that. First, it effectively treats dull skin, wrinkles, cellulite, scars, and hyperpigmentation. In this article, we will discuss everything you need to know about micro needling. We will further discuss its benefits and risks (if any) and why it is better than spa facials or other skin treatments.

Microneedling: What We Know!

The idea came in the 1990s, and it officially started in 1995. It is known to be a multi-purpose treatment, that is rather safe and provides a long-term solution. Apart from the face, microneelding can be done all over the body. You’ll feel mild pain, and contrary to popular notion, it will be bearable. The major conditions that can be improved are skin damage from sun, skin aging, loose or lax skin, stretch marks, wrinkles and fine lines, acne scars, pore size, dormant hair follicles, as well as skin texture. When it comes to the treatment cost, it is $300 per month. Now, this might be expensive for some, however, the end results might offer you some permanent solutions.

The Process

The process involves the use of needles in order to puncture the hundreds of tiny holes that are found on the skin. Dermapen is a tool that contains tiny needles at the end. When the treatment starts, these needles make tiny holes at the topmost layer of the skin.

Microneedling with Derma roller:

The main method of micro needling is done with the help of Derma Roller. It also contains needles of the same size and shape. It is gently rolled in multiple directions and produces similar results. The dermatologists use it for one or two purposes. The tiny ‘pinpricks’ that are formed as a result of this procedure, quickly heal the skin. Another benefit is that it escalates elastin and collagen production. As the little pores are formed, these allow various helpful skincare products to absorb into deeper layers and aid in the healing process.

Things to Remember

Until your skin is healed, you need to keep it hydrated. For that purpose, you can use top quality moisturizers in order to calm the redness. Here, an important thing to note is that you need to avoid exploiters because you might get a reaction.  Furthermore, you might also want to skip the workout session for just a little bit (2-3 days max!). It will cause you sweat, which will ultimately lead to skin irritation. Once the procedure is done, you’ll feel a plump less skin and the unmatched glow will definitely be worth it. For effective results, you can prefer the in-office treatments every other month.

Why is it better than other treatments?

With a spa facial, you might protect and freshen up your skin, but it will not be enough. Besides, it might also make the skin dry, or in severe cases cause scarring or irritation. Furthermore, spa facial cleanses, exfoliate, and massages the skin, however, it does not deeply treat the skin as micro-needling does. Another benefit of Microneedling is that it can be done on all skin types and that’s what makes it stand apart from the crowd. Therefore, micro needling is all you need to get that ‘flawless’ (we mean that!) skin.

Are there any risks?

There are no ‘as such’ risks, however, you must be careful and avoid one or two things. First, you have to make sure that your pimples are gone so that any chances of infection can be avoided. Secondly, if you are experiencing skin irritation or inflammation, then it is better to opt out of the process. Lastly, you have to be careful when applying harsh skincare products (for example, exfoliators), because these can also cause irritation.

Mentioned above are some of the reasons as to why micro needling is better than other surgical skin treatments. Those women, who want to pursue it can definitely go for it. All you need to do is consult a practiced dermatologist and then make a final decision!
