Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that aims to rejuvenate the skin. The in-clinic procedure involves puncturing the superficial layer of the skin with tiny needles of a skin needling device such as Dermapen. The controlled micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing process by producing collagen and elastin resulting in smoother skin texture and complexion.
The main advantages of skin needling over traditional skin rejuvenating procedures are as follows:
- Simple and straightforward procedure
Microneedling is a simple procedure that lasts between 15 minutes to 1 hour. A skin pen is used to create the micro-injuries on skin. Topical anesthetics are not generally required but can be used to numb the skin during the procedure for those who have a low tolerance for pain.
- Affordable skin rejuvenation procedure
As opposed to chemical peels and laser resurfacing, microneedling is a more cost-effective procedure. The frequency of procedures depends on a case-to-case basis, but they are spaced at least 4 to 6 weeks in between. Even women on a budget will be able to afford to get regular skin rejuvenation via microneedling.
Unlike chemical peels and lasers that may cause irritation and side effects, microneedling is highly recommended even for those with sensitive skin. As it utilises the body’s natural healing process to induce new skin production, there are less chances of patients suffering from complications.
Also, there is little to zero downtime for patients who undergo microneedling. Patients can go back to their routine a few hours after the procedure, making it the preferred treatment for patients on-the-go.
- Increased nutrient absorption
A stellar benefit that patients reap after microneedling is that their skin can absorb more nutrients from their skincare products. This guarantees faster progress towards healthy and flawless skin. New skin soaks up more vitamins as opposed to old and dull skin.
