Skin needling treatment to make skin more beautiful
Skin needling is increasingly getting popular in recent times due to its ability to remove scars, acne and make skin smooth.
Skin needling is also known as micro needling. It can be performed by dermatologists or skin doctors. It is used to correct skin defects like acne, scars, and stretch marks, wrinkles or skin age. Skin needling is a way to produce or induce natural collagen production on the skin, without damaging epidermis of the skin. The main benefit of skin needling is that its procedure is painless and safe.
The skin needling treatment is quite simple to perform. The therapist first applies cream to the area of the skin, that is about to be treated. A small anesthetic if needed is then given to numb the skin. Some needles are then used on the skin creating small punctures on epidermis, to stimulate new collagen formation making skin thicker and tighter, and remove pigmentation. After the treatment, a cream is applied for cooling and backup of skin.
Skin needling is also used for scars and wrinkles removal where the same procedure is applied to produce elasticity production of the skin. This is a safe method then other treatments. Skin needling treatment is used by using micro needles with 1.5 or 2-3 millimeters.
Skin needling can be used for scars, to create soft skin and break old collagens that base out near the scars. It stabilizes and stores the epidermis and used for stimulation of new collagen. It can also be used for treating scars from acne, burns and injury. Stretch marks can also be treated as skin needling can activate melanin production to give a natural look of the skin. It is preferred, because it gives long lasting results, safe, no skin side effects and less time of procedure. There is no risk of high pigmentation or any inflammation or other injuries.
The skin needling treatment is required for at least 6 weeks or 4 to 5 sessions. General improvement can start coming from 2-3 months onwards. Skin needling treatment can be done on face, hands, neck, chest and back area. The treatment is done in one session of 45 minutes to one hour.
There are no reported side effects of skin needling treatment, other than temporary swelling, dryness or temporary itching of the skin. Derma Roller can be used for skin needling treatment if done at home, which is durable and lasts for many treatments. Women prefer skin needling more, due to its ability to make the skin younger, and ability to reduce wrinkles. That is why laser and surgery is not preferred in comparison with skin needling treatment.
