Microneedling and How It Works
Microneedling pens such as Dermapen creates micro punctures on the skin which then results in controlled injuries on the superficial layers of the skin. The epidermis is affected by this process as evinced by redness and superficial bleeding. The presence of bleeding and inflammation then prompts the body’s natural healing process.
During the healing process, growth factors, connective tissue proteins, and other chemicals involved in faster healing are produced at an efficient rate. Collagen, elastin, fibroblasts, and other growth factors then replace the injuries which will then be the foundation of new skin.
Based on studies, four sessions of microneedling increase collagen and elastin production by up to 400% within a 6-month treatment period.
Although there is a rise in the popularity of at-home microneedling treatments using derma rollers, in-clinic microneedling sessions is the only skin rejuvenation procedure recommended by dermatologists and skin experts.
At-home microneedling sessions, when done improperly, can do more harm than good on the skin. In addition, implementation of microneedling at a clinic is safer due to its controlled and hygienic environment.
What skin conditions can be treated through microneedling?
If you are suffering from common skin problems such as skin dullness, acne, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation, microneedling is definitely worth a try. This procedure may be combined with other dermatological treatment for best results.
In addition, microneedling for younger individuals is an excellent regimen that prevents the premature development of ageing signs due to sun exposure including wrinkles, age spots, and fine lines to name a few.
