Everybody wants that perfect skin with no wrinkles and scars, perfectly smooth and toned skin. But is it possible to possess such beauty? Well, with the help of micro-needling it is possible. The term might be new to most of us but it has been in practice for a long time now.
The main question is what does microneedling do? As we can get an idea from the name itself micro means small and needling here refers to needles. Microneedling is one of the derma roller procedures, in which we use small needles to prick the skin. The treatment helps in generating new collagen and skin tissues, that result in getting smoother, firmer, and more toned skin. The collagen and elastin generated by the small wounds of the needles heal the skin and helps it look younger.
The treatment is mostly used on the face and is effective in treating scars, wrinkles, and large pores. What’s the cost of this treatment? The cost might depend from spas to spas, but on average it costs around $200 to $700 per session. The total number of sessions may vary according to the skin’s response and type. Most people only need three to six sessions for getting optimized results.
Is microneedling safe?
Microneedling is a safe and effective procedure, it can effectively improve the texture and appearance of the skin. It helps in reducing wrinkles, tightening loose or aging skin, and diminishing scars. Although after the treatment the face may stay red for some days normally around 48 hours, it’s quite normal so there is no need to panic. But if it stays red for more than 2 days, consult the therapist or a skin doctor.
Although the procedure needs to be done with full care and safety. Using a larger needle may lead to infections or increase the risks of having scars. Make sure you go to the right person for the treatment.
Is microneedling permanent?
No, the effects of microneedling are not permanent. For keeping the effects permanently the individual must go for the treatment every 4 to 6 weeks. Regular treatment will help in keeping up with the process.
What’s better laser treatment or microneedling?
Microneedling is a fast and less invasive treatment, it is more comfortable than laser treatments. Many people have reported that the heat of laser treatments is intolerable and painful. Microneedling uses small needles to do all the work, these needles are not even that noticeable and just cause a little pain similar to the ant bite.
