Microneedling has been used to improve the skin texture, wrinkles and Acne scars.
What is Microneedling?
It is a minimally invasive solution to improve acne scars, boost collagen and resurface the skin to improve texture. Microneedling has been used for many years by physicians to improve the aesthetic looks.
How does Microneedling work?
It works by insertion of very fine needles causing manual damage to the surface of the skin which rejuvenates and repairs itself. This process is slightly painful in which topical numbing cream is used. A Microneedling machine or device is fine tuned to be inserted certain depth mechanically to ensure safety and prevent side effects of hyperpigmentation or damage to the skin. It is very important to have this procedure done at a medical clinic to enhance the results.
When will I expect results from Microneedling?
It results take about two weeks to repair and heal itself. Initially it plumps the skin and makes the skin look radiant from inflammation and swelling. You will notice the changes in the skin and improvements of the scars in one month. Multiple studies have shown the skin treated with four sessions of microneedling spaced one month apart produced up to a 400% increase in collagen and elastin after six months of completing treatments.
Microneedling stimulates dormant hair follicles.
This equals new hair growth, confirms Gohara. In a recent study, 100 test subjects were divided into two groups: One set was treated with minoxidil lotion and the other received minoxidil lotion plus microneedling. After 12 weeks, 82 percent of the microneedling group reported 50 percent improvement versus 4.5 percent of the minoxidil lotion-only group.
