5 things you need to know about Microneedling!
Would you roll needles all over your face for smoother skin? That’s the promise of the trendy treatment microneedling. Enter dermarollers and derma pens. Dermarolling and derma pens are a form of microneedling, which involves using a mini wheel covered with hundreds of tiny needles to gently prick the face. They look like mini torture devices but, trust us, they work miracles for uneven skin tone, acne scars, wrinkles, skin rejuvenation and fine lines. This article will help to look at all aspects of the treatment, further specific details regarding the FAQ and costs can be found on the The Laser Clinique website
What is dermarolling?
A dermaroller or derma pen is an instrument that creates micro pathways in the skin for product to better penetrate. Those tiny needles are not only great for collagen synthesis. It is also a great way to get products to absorb and penetrate the skin. It is a great part of the treatment.
A dermaroller creates tiny pricks around the skin and gives enough space in between so the wound healing response takes over. You grow new skin. That, in turn, leads to a smoother, more even, and plumper complexion.
Who is dermarolling best for?
Someone that has acne scarring, someone with larger pores, someone who just wants a skin-tightening boost, then derma planing as part of a facial would be very effective. At, The Laser Clinique we have designed facials that incorporate microneedling, derma rollers, derma planing and laser! Microneedling facials include our Plump and Glo, Luxury DNA Photofacial and the Platinum DNA Facial which includes a FREE serum and Maintenance Kit!
However, those that suffer with eczema, psoriasis, and warts (which are prone to spreading, so rolling all over your face isn’t ideal). For anyone with acne, you shouldn’t roll over cystic skin or an open wound from a spot because it’ll spread bacteria all over the face.
What are the benefits of microneedling?
Its non-surgical and non-ablative treatment. Reduction of scars by breaking down scar tissue, improvement of stretch marks, reduced pore size, fine lines, wrinkles hyperpigmentation, an overall more radiant appearance leaving the skin tighter and plumped. Also benefits increased hair growth on scalp as well. It also boosts the absorption and concentration of topical skincare products, making them tremendously effective.
The newly produced collagen act as filler for facial lines and wrinkles which increases skin elasticity. As a result, facial lines and winkles are reduced.
