Skin needling has been one of the more popular beauty treatments in recent years mainly due to its promise of instantly youthful skin. But does a skin pen really deliver better results than most traditional skin treatments?
Continue reading to finally answer the question, “does skin needling work?”
To answer the question, we first need to define what is skin needling and how it works in improving our skin.
What is skin needling?
Skin needling is a skincare treatment that focuses on skin regeneration. Skin concerns such as acne scarring and large pore sizes are some of the conditions wherein an Authorised Treatment Provider will prescribe skin needling for patients.
Skin needling with the use of a clinical-grade skin pen such as Dermapen has been proven to be more cost efficient and effective than traditional skin regeneration procedures such as laser resurfacing, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion.
How does it work?
Skin needling or derma needling involves the use of a skin needling pen such as Dermapen studded with clinical-grade micro needles that can be as small as 0.1 mm in diameter. Dermapen creates minuscule punctures on the superficial skin layers which then triggers the body’s natural wound healing abilities. This leads to the production of two vital skin ingredients namely collagen and elastin. These compounds quickly fill the injured areas for faster repair and skin regeneration.
But does it work?
Studies conducted by DermapenWorld and other independent research studies reveal that skin needling results in the following skin improvements:
- Reversing the visible signs of ageing through a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- The skin appears more supple and smooth as a result of collagen and elastin production
- New skin formation which causes scars and other blemishes to fade away
The positive skin changes become evident after the first few skin needling sessions. According to studies, you will notice up to 15% reduction in the appearance of scars 24 to 48 hours after the first skin needling session. To achieve the best results, it’s best to seek the expertise of a DermapenWorld Authorised Treatment Provider.
