Micro Needling

Micro Needling

or MicroNeedling is a form of Collagen Induction Therapy which is intended to smooth wrinkles, improve depressed acne scarring as well as reduce the appearance of stretch marks. It is one the newest, easiest and most effective skin treatments available and is a process which can be carried out clinically or in the home. As the process gains awareness it is important to understand, what skin needling is, how it works and whether it is a suitable treatment for you.

The process for microneedling is carried out with a roller made up of many miniature needles. The needles pierce the upper layers of skin up to 2 millimetres depending on the needle used. This process has two major benefits. It successfully stimulates collagen formation as well as providing a clear topical channel for creams and gels to be effectively absorbed through the top most layer epidermis of skin. MicroNeedling creates a very minor trauma which lasts for a short period of time and does not result in bruising or swelling in the treated area.

The small puncture wound stimulates collagen production in the dermis layer as breaks some of the blood vessels directly below the surface of the skin. As the blood clots, it creates the right environment for collagen and elastin formation. It is these vital ingredients which assists in the skin appearing rejuvenated.

Although this sounds drastic, the process happens on a microscopic level and the outward appearance of trauma is negligible. Clinical use of microneedling will involve using agents to numb the skin so that the treatment can be carried out with little discomfort. The DermaRoller is intended for extended use at home. It should be used far more gently over a longer period of time. In this way, it becomes part of your daily routine, produces the same great results but costs a fraction of the price of expensive clinical visits.

There are alternatives to skin needling which by and large require visits to beauticians or other clinical specialists. These include Chemical Peels, MicroDermabrasion and Laser Therapy. Results from these processes do differ from one person to the next as everyones body reacts differently to each treatment. However, using a Dermaroller is certainly far less invasive, has a far lesser risk of complications and is generally much cheaper. Especially considering carrying out the treatment at home.

Microneedling is a great choice for people who havent had success with any other type of treatment, for those who would prefer tackling their skin issues in the privacy of the home, or those who wish to achieve success without the hugely inflated cost of clinical visits.

Also bear in mind that the use of skin creams or oil products are greatly boosted by using a DermaRoller as the absorption rate of the skin is raised considerably through the channels which are created by skin needling through the epidermis.
