You have likely noticed that micro-needling has gained a lot of attention recently. Beauty blogs talk about this treatment all the time. It is a treatment where micro-channels are made in the skin. These micro-openings are controlled so that they only puncture the epidermis and maybe slightly puncture the top layers of the dermis. The purpose of the micro-channels is to encourage collagen production, which ultimately heals the skin and makes the skin look and feel better. Micro-needling also enables the body to absorb skin care products easier, making the skincare products more effective.
When people first hear about micro-needling, they are taken aback. For many, the idea sounds less like something you would see in a doctor’s office or at a beauty spa and more like something you would hear about in a horror movie. However, many people around the world swear by this treatment. They have seen the results of the treatment firsthand and know that it can help with a wide range of skin issues ranging from wrinkles to acne to clogged pores.
Micro-needling, when performed by a skilled professional, creates many tiny micro-openings in the skin. It is best to have a professional perform this treatment because you will know that the equipment they use will be sterile, and you know that the entries that are being made are beneficial and not exaggerated.
In professional settings, micro-needling is often combined with topical solutions. If you infuse your skin with topical products immediately after micro-needling, you will notice an even better effect.
Micro-needling has worked for many individuals who are looking to get rid of acne scarring. By encouraging collagen growth, people are able to remove indentations and marks caused by acne. The process leads to cleaner pores, which over the course of months, produces anti-aging effects like firming and smoothing the skin.
