The Benefits of Microneedling Being Done By a Dermatologist
You may have heard or read about microneedling in a magazine, online or from a friend who may have had the procedure done. There’s no doubt you’ve heard that it has impactful benefits, but are they exaggerated? Is this a procedure better done by a dermatologist than an average cosmetic technician? We’ve got some answers for you:
Microneedling Helps Increase the Production of Collagen in Your Skin
Microneedling involves the use of a roller that is lined with a lot of small, thin needles. As the roller is rolled over your face, these needles prick the skin, creating superficial trauma. In order to heal from this minor trauma, your skin naturally creates more collagen. Collagen of course reduces your wrinkles and helps to reduce facial skin sagging. While having needles rolled over your face sounds painful, the procedure is actually fairly comfortable, as the needles are so small, most people do not really feel them.
Regular Microneedling Helps to Reduce the Appearance of Scars, Stretch Marks, Wrinkles and Large Pores
Another benefit associated with regular microneedling sessions is that it can help reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and wrinkles and minimize large pores on the face. This is partially due to the increased collagen production, as well as the skin cells that are quickly rejuvenating to heal from the superficial trauma on your face. The newer your scars and blemishes are, the more likely that microneedling will be successful at eliminating them.
Microneedling Helps You to Absorb Skin Care Products
Finally, after microneedling, your skin will better absorb any skin care products you use. Thanks to the superficial trauma on the surface of your skin, your products can now penetrate deeper. Ultimately, this makes the products you are using more effective. Quality skin care products are expensive, and regular microneedling helps to maximize the benefits of using those pricey soaps, creams and serums.
