Using lots of cosmetic with an expectation of achieving younger looking skin? Got fed up of all the monthly appointments to the salon? As per survey of American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, in 2016, 15 billion dollars were spent by Americans on combined surgical and non-surgical procedures. Non-Surgical procedures saw a rise of 7% in 2016. If all the non-surgical treatments are considered, Non-surgical skin tightening saw a rise of 12%.
Honestly, it is irritating when all your hard work on your skin results in nothing. No need to be upset. An angel traveled down to the earth with wealth of benefits to rejuvenate your skin. Let’s welcome Microneedling.
Microneedling is a process to fake your skin to generate extra collagen (protein used to rejuvenate your skin), helpful for younger looking skin. As the name suggests, tiny needles are used to inject a protein named Collagen into your skin.
The roller is surrounded by tiny needles. When rolled, they do not cause much pain to you.
The after effects of the treatment will bring a smile on your face.
Aging will be fun
Are you in your late 30s and wrinkles make you upset? You might not utter your age but your face tells everything. Your worries are over and you can hide your age with a grace. Thanks to microneedling. With microneedling, you can reduce your deep and fine wrinkles. The process stimulates the growth of collagen, required for younger looking skin.
The quantity of collagen decreases with age. This is the root cause of aging of your skin. Microneedling helps to tighten your skin and smoothen the damaged skin.
The study of International Society of Dermatology confirms that microneedling helps in skin rejuvenation and skin tightening. If all the non-surgical treatments are considered, Non-surgical skin tightening saw a rise of 12% in 2016.
Win a war against scar
The best method to avoid any acne scar is not to have any acne. But is it a feasible solution? Certain factors are involved when acne is concerned. It is irritating and you feel picking the pimples is the perfect solution. But to your surprise, it increases the probability of scarring.
The Micro-needles ride your skin like a car. On the way, it gives lift to collagen, which in return heals your scar. A study was done on 60 patients with acne scarring. Three microneedling treatments resulted in 31% improvement in skin texture, with no discoloration of the skin.
Dark Spots getting fairer
Collagen is helpful not only in reducing the wrinkles and scars. It goes far beyond improving the look of your skin. Microneedling stimulates the growth of collagen which can reverse sun damage and discoloration.
A study performed in 2015 revealed that microneedling can easily treat blotchy, brownish facial pigmentation, occurring because of melasma. You can observe the change in yourself even after few microneedling sessions and find your skin glowing like never before.
A big NO to bigger pores
Pores are the opening in the skin from which oil oozes out. The reasons can be any from hereditary to aging. Microneedling might look like enlarging your pores, but its do the reverse. The collagen stimulated after microneedling don’t fully close the pores but it fill it up and shrink them to some extent. The smaller pores will be far better than the bigger ones. Isn’t it?
Cosmetics that sticks
You spend a lot of money on cosmetics. Your budget for cosmetics keeps on increasing with passing time. But do you know; only 4 to 8 percent of that expensive serum you're using on your face actually penetrates your skin? You think more expensive cosmetic might shoe better results. But you end up with a facepalm and regret spending so high on cosmetics.
Cosmetics just fake your skin giving you a psychological feeling of application of serums on the face. Actually, these serums don’t penetrate your skin and thus gives you dissatisfying results. But with microneedling, tiny punctures made in your skin allow these cosmetics to get absorbed by your skin. The same has been backed up by a recent study.
Microneedling is an art. It assumes your skin as a canvas. Once the process is done, you feel the change and you become a priceless art.
Although the tiny needles accompanying the derma roller looks like thorn of cactus, but they hardly cause any pain. You might feel uncomfortable but it is advised to use a topical numbing cream to make the process painless and full of comfort.
Microneedling brings no side-effects along with it unlike other treatments which accompany pain, inflammation and bleeding. You can expect little redness on the affected area which will fly away in 5-7 days.
Your skin deserves a New Year treat. Why not gifting this inexpensive, most effective treatment and flaunt your skin in a New Year selfie.
