Microneedling is a treatment that can significantly improve the appearance of the skin. It can be used to slow the aging process, treat scars caused by burns or acne, and improve the appearance of stretch marks, wrinkles, and expression lines. It can also brighten dull skin and restore texture by reducing the appearance of pores. The procedure involves causing tiny skin leaks, which your body naturally heals, resulting in plump, pink, and luminous skin for a few weeks.
The procedure begins with a professional evaluation to determine the skin’s needs and the number of sessions required. The skin will be cleaned and disinfected before a cocktail of substances is applied based on the desired results. The device with microneedles is then used, ensuring the desired depth of penetration. After the treatment, you should avoid sun exposure and not wear makeup for 24 hours. Microneedling can be used by younger individuals to prevent collagen fiber degeneration, delaying the appearance of signs of aging.
