There are an overwhelming number of products and procedures when one searches for skin rejuvenation solutions.

One of the common and highly recommended solution is microneedling, read on as we shed more light on this effective skin rejuvenating solution.

What Is Microneedling?

Implied by the name, microneedling is performed using a special device fitted with many tiny needles. As it is guided along the skin, it produces tiny microwounds on the surface of the skin stimulating a natural healing process and encouraging an increase in collagen and elastin reproduction under the skin. This procedure improves bloody flow supply in the skin giving a smoother, more radiant and healthier appearing skin.

How Is Microneedling Performed?

Microneedling device is fitted with 12 tiny needles and the certified plastic doctor would then guide the device across the skin after the application of numbing cream on the skin. Though needles would be involved, but the procedure is not as scary or painful as you may imagine. The needles used are very tiny and with the aid of numbing cream, patients would experience minimal to no pain during the procedure. Patients might expect some redness and swelling immediately after the procedure is performed but the responses will disappear in less than 24 hours.

Why Microneedling?

Also known as collagen inducing therapy, it is a minimally invasive treatment which imitates the body’s natural healing process stimulating an increase in collagen and elastin production. The production of collagen and elastin is the key to a youthful skin as it reverses and prevents signs of aging. Some doctors would even go as far to say that microneedling is the most powerful way to stop aging in its tracks and just a few sessions would noticeably reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the facial features. With minimal downtime from the procedure, it is a great way to starve off the signs of aging without the use of chemicals or need to go under the knife. This method allows the skin to boost its absorption functions, helping the skin to absorb serums applied after deeply into the skin.

Penetrating the skin by any means can expose one to infection therefore, it is vital that you approach a reputable dermatologist. If you are keen on microneedling, it is pertinent that you discuss with our board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Scott Newman on the best treatment plan to guide you on a journey to natural and lasting rejuvenated skin.
