Unfortunately, for many people, skin issues don’t go away once you enter your twenties. In fact, as time passes, more and more blemishes will creep up on your skin due to things like aging, previous cases of acne, and sun damage. Every man and woman wants to have attractive skin, and little blemishes like wrinkles and scarring are definitely not a part of the picture. An innovative procedure known as microneedling might be just what you need to get the skin you desire.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is one of the latest procedures to help improve the appearance of the skin. It not only reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles, but it can also help improve other skin issues such as scars.
Microneedling is making big waves in the skincare world. It is a procedure that has been used for decades. This procedure requires a small pen that has tiny micro-needles on it. As the pen moves over the surface of the skin, the tiny needles will create micro-channels in the epidermis. The epidermis is the first layer of skin. This encourages the skin to increase its collagen production, creating a smoother and younger-looking surface. This happens because, throughout the healing process, the skin remodels the collagen to create healthier-looking skin.
Many people choose microneedling because it is a better option than many other alternatives. This procedures is less harsh on the skin and does not require as much recovery time.
Microneedling can help reduce scarring and pockmarks caused by any previous and stubborn acne. The pen reduces acne scars because it breaks up the fibrosis beneath the skin that causes scarring. When the microneedle moves over the skin, it is able to break up the fibrosis and release the surface of the skin, providing a smoother surface and improved appearance.
