Are you willing to let needles puncture your face? It may sound contradicting but creating injuries on your skin can result in smoother, firmer, and younger looking skin! If you’ve been searching for the ultimate skin rejuvenation procedure, let us introduce you to the wonders of microneedling!
What happens during a microneedling session?
During a microneedling session, a skin pen such as Dermapen 4 punctures the skin with its microscopic needles. The resulting micro injuries then trigger a series of healing processes that ultimately produce collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are protein fibres that provide the skin with its firm and elastic qualities.
Microneedling addresses a myriad of skin issues ranging from wrinkles and fine lines to hyperpigmentation and stretch marks. It is also being used to keep the skin smooth and free from blemishes over time.
Does microneedling work?
Yes! It is crucial to remember that microneedling is an in-clinic procedure that is to be done by a licensed and trained skin professionals such as dermatologists and aestheticians. With repeated microneedling sessions, the skin’s ability to absorb nutrients from skincare products also improve resulting in well-nourished skin.
The most popular use of microneedling among men and women is scar and stretch mark reductions. Deep pitted scars and dark stretch marks reduce in appearance as collagen and elastin slowly occupy the damaged areas of the skin.
Microneedling is also used in minimising pores. Regular microneedling session smoothens and evens out skin complexion.
Is microneedling a painful procedure?
In-clinic microneedling session done by a trained skin specialist should not illicit pain at all. There is minimal to zero pain when undergoing a microneedling session. For patients with low pain tolerance, topical numbing cream is applied on the skin for comfort.
