Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is an invasive procedure used to treat skin conditions. XBody, Health, Wellness, and Spa is an integrative medicine provider in Wayne which offers the treatment. Here are all the facts you need to know about this procedure.
What is microneedling?
Microneedling involves the use of several sterilized needles to puncture the first layer of the skin after the application of an anesthetic cream about an hour before to make the process less painful. This procedure stimulates the production of collagen and elastin so the skin can heal itself. A serum and face mask is then applied to the skin to provide hydration and pain relief. The increased production of collagen makes the skin firmer and brighter, giving your skin a noticeable glow.
The process takes about thirty minutes to two hours, and the recovery time is a few weeks; a little redness appears that lasts for a few days. Your skin will be a bit more sensitive during the first week, so you will need to take measures to protect your skin. You will need to stay away from the sun and avoid using harsh products as your skin heals. Since microneedling is about making needle pricks on the skin surface, it is not recommended for people with active acne and sensitive skin.
This procedure may seem a little scary, but it is quite painless and safe when done by professionals. The result is worth it, and with extended use, you will notice more permanent positive changes in your skin condition.
Benefits of microneedling
It reduces the effects of aging, such as wrinkles, which makes you look younger for longer. Each microneedling treatment gradually boosts collagen production in your skin, which naturally reduces with age or damage to the skin. This makes it highly effective in improving your skin’s texture, radiance, and appearance.
It is also beneficial in the case of skin conditions like acne scars, wrinkles, large pores, stretch marks, cellulite, and scarring. It reduces these blemishes making your skin clearer. Another benefit worth mentioning is that the skin is more responsive to skincare products due to the increased absorption, which is made possible by the microscopic punctures. This makes the application of serums and other products like vitamin C more effective.
Does it work?
While it takes a few to several months to see results, the results are amazing. Your skin will be healthier, looking, and clearer. Short term results are glowing and firm skin. If you are patient enough, you will have reduced skin blemishes and scars. This treatment has been helpful to a lot of people, especially in the treatment of acne scars.
You should consider giving this procedure a try if you have tried other home treatment methods several times to alleviate skin conditions without success.
