Are you dealing with skin issues like lines and wrinkles, acne scars and skin that is overly dry or dull? Skin conditions like these tend to become more common as we grow older, but there are recent innovations in the cosmetic medicine field that can improve these common skin complaints without the need for cosmetic surgery. One such treatment is micro-needling.
A Note About Cosmetic Surgery
Cosmetic surgery has helped millions of people turn back the clock on the signs of facial aging. While procedures like the facelift can offer dramatic results, many people would prefer to use methods that are not as invasive or do not entail as much risk. Even though cosmetic surgery is normally quite safe, all surgery does involve a degree of risk, making minimally-invasive techniques desirable for a lot of people.
What is Micro-Needling?
Micro-needling is a relatively new cosmetic procedure for treating fine lines and wrinkles, poor skin texture, discoloration and scars caused by acne. This technique is minimally-invasive and requires no anesthesia. Another positive aspect is that it involves virtually no downtime for the vast majority of patients.
The procedure itself is quite simple. During the treatment, many tiny micro-channels are created in the skin. These channels trigger your body into rejuvenating the skin in the injured areas, as well as some undamaged skin tissue adjacent to the punctures.
The result is skin that gradually remakes itself. Over the course of the following weeks and months, you should see diminished signs of lines, wrinkles, scars and other unwanted conditions.
Multiple Treatments for Optimal Results
Micro-needling offers results that are cumulative when you have multiple sessions. Each successive micro-needling treatment improves your skin a little bit more. However, the treatments are spaced a set amount of time apart to allow your skin to completely heal from the previous treatment.
Combining Micro-Needling with Other Treatments
Micro-needling is effective on its own, but the procedure is also great when performed in conjunction with other treatments, like topical skin care agents. The same tiny skin punctures formed by the procedure offer a channel through which topical products can flow deeper into your skin, dramatically increasing their potency.
