Microneedling is also known as “nutrient induction therapy" or “collagen induction therapy" depending on the depth of the microchannels. Experts agree that microneedling is a risk-free procedure that has real benefits for your skin. The device pokes many tiny little holes in the top layer of your skin, triggering the body to produce new elastin and collagen on its own during the healing stage. If you want to get rid of fine wrinkles, acne, scars, stretch marks and other skin issues, it seems that the microneedle treatment is one of the answers to your prayers
Micro Puncturing the skin (after it has been numbed) produces a controlled skin injury and leaves the actual epidermis undamaged. Minimal bleeding is involved as the injuries are tiny, but the process of healing is set in motion.
Five days after a microneedling procedure, a matrix forms under the skin for the collagen to be deposited on, which can last for up to seven years. For this to occur, the microneedlings have to be 1.5 mm in length.
One shows that with four microneedling sessions spaced one month apart, collagen and elastin deposited increased by 400 percent in the lower layer of the skin.
Both collagen and hair follicles exist within the same layer of the skin. Just like the skin on our face, the scalp also loses collagen as we age, resulting in slow hair growth and dormant hair follicles.
One study performed found that loss of collagen actually caused hair follicles to shrink. It will also brings blood flow and nutrients to the scalp and induces new stem cells that support hair growth.
Stretch marks are a scar that develops in the deeper layers of the dermis and when there is stress, stretching and strain in the area the collagen in the skin breaks down causing marks on the surface known as stretch marks. These lines can be virtually eliminated or faded considerably anywhere on the body.
Microneedling is used for the treatment of lip lines and smoker's lines due to its ability to stimulate new collagen formation and tighten the skin. ... More importantly, the skin will continue to improve over the 6-8 weeks after each treatment.
Microneedling for dark spots is the best treatment method because it is chemical-free and induces the body to naturally heal itself. There are no side effects and the results last for a long time. It is effective for all skin types and offers a no fail dark spot treatment. By stimulating collagen growth with microneedling, you can also reverse sun damage and discoloration, including the hyperpigmentation that comes with melasma.
Microneedling was first developed to treat scarring. with that said, collagen fibers that have been laid down as a result of the microneedling procedure have a normal lattice pattern as opposed to scar tissue that has parallel layering. Cell activity is increased as the release of various proteins, potassium and growth factors from cells as well as fibroblasts converge on the site of the “injury,” inducing collagen production. Skin is tightened, and scars are broken down then filled up.
Prior to the Microneedling treatment, an anesthetic gel is gently applied over the target areas ensuring that a patient will feel comfortable throughout the procedure. When the micro needles are short, only up to 0.5 mm long, the microneedling procedure is essentially painless. However, the longer the needles and the further the depth of the needles, the more pain will be perceived. Again, every individual is different and the thickness of your particular skin is a factor in pain. Having thick skin pays in microneedling!
