To look and feel beautiful is something that many women strive for. The cosmetic treatment scenario has seen some great advances that adds serious momentum to this dream of women everywhere. Not only women but these cosmetic procedures have considerably increased in Men ,we see more men worried about their skin.Collagen induction therapy more popularly known in the beauty circles as Microneedling is one such cosmetic procedure. The microneedling procedure as the name suggests involves the use of an instrument called a dermaroller /dermapen with super fine needles.
These sterile needles are used to create micro-injuries or hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of skin. It is a very effective and safe procedure and isn’t as crazy as it seems. Once the micro injuries are made on the skin, these will trigger the body’s natural wound healing responses, which then leads to cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production. Microneedling almost works like lasers but the difference is that the injury to the skin is done mechanically instead of using heat or light.
Before the microneedling procedure is done the doctor will first check the condition of the skin and advise you on the likely outcomes and the number of sessions required. A vitamin A and C supplement will be prescribed to help boost cell turnover and collagen production in the skin. This can in turn enhance the desired benefits of microneedling. Mild anesthetic cream will be applied before the procedure to reduce pain or any discomfort. The dermaroller /dermapen will then be swiped uniformly across the skin. The entire procedure can take 20 to 30 minutes depending on the area being treated. A calming moisturizer or serum can soothe the treated area after microneedling is done.
At least four sessions may be required for best results. Microneedling has some advantages when compared to other procedures as it is minimally invasive, requiring no downtime and it is also safe most people who are in good general health.
