How Micro Needling Can Improve Your Skin

Published on: March 30, 2015

Do you have skin imperfections that you would like to have improved? Whether you have fine lines, wrinkles, large pores or even scars, micro needling may be the procedure you have been looking for to improve the appearance of your skin. This delicate procedure has been proven effective for many skin conditions, resulting in smoother, healthier looking skin.

How Does Micro Needling Work?

In the simplest terms, micro needling uses closely-spaced micro needles to perforate the skin. The science behind micro needling is in the induced collagen production. Although the small needle holes do not damage the skin, they do cause the body to produce more collagen to repair the skin. This extra collagen sent to strategic areas can help improve the signs of aging, reduce scars and improve rough, sun damaged skin.

In addition to the collagen benefit, experienced dermatologists also use the perforated skin as an opportunity to introduce other skin enhancements into the skin. Certain nutrients and anti-aging serums can be placed on the skin after micro needling for better absorption, improving the results.

Although there have been micro needling products that have been sold for home use, it is unclear whether these products have the same effect or are safe. Since there the skin is being pierced, this should only be done by a professional that is trained in this procedure.

If you think micro needling may be the solution you have been waiting for, call your local dermatology clinic for a consultation. They can discuss the benefits of this procedure and analyze whether it is the right option for treating your skin imperfections.
