A growing number of people are waking up to the numerous benefits offered by micro-needling skin rejuvenation. This minimally-invasive technique involves the mechanical injury of surface layers of skin to promote the turnover of old skin cells and the production of new ones to take their place. Micro-needling offers numerous advantages over other types of skin treatments. Although it may sound extreme to heal the skin by injuring it, the process is actually quite gentle on the body and offers real results.
Little to No Downtime
One of the main benefits of a micro-needling treatment is that you can expect little to no downtime after your procedure. The micro-punctures that are formed by the treatment process are extremely tiny and invisible in most cases. Since we are not using incisions like those in cosmetic surgery, your healing time will be minimal to nonexistent.
Another benefit to having a micro-needling treatment is that your results will appear quite soft and natural. Although cosmetic surgery can certainly provide dramatic results, its results can appear implausible to others because of the extreme and sudden change in appearance of the patient.
Enhances Other Treatments
In addition to making a fine treatment on its own, micro-needling is able to greatly enhance the performance of other treatments like topical skin care products. Each time we move the device over your skin, hundreds of microscopic punctures are created in it. One reason that some topicals are not as effective as they could be is because of the presence of the stratum corneum, the outermost skin layer composed of dead skin cells and cellular debris. Micro-needling creates punctures that allow topicals to bypass this natural barrier, greatly increasing their effectiveness through improved skin penetration.
Works with Your Body
Micro-needling is a very natural type of treatment that evokes a natural response from your body. Unlike other types of skin rejuvenation treatments that rely upon synthetic substances or unnatural methods, micro-needling works with your body to trigger skin rejuvenation.
