Skin is the most important factor when people judge someone as beautiful. To maintain their good appearance and strength, there are several procedures available. Having a glam with even-toned skin is all we need.
Microneedling is one best treatment for generating new collagen and skin tissues for more toned skin. It is mostly used on the face for treating different skin conditions like wrinkles, scars, acne, fine lines, loose skin, pigmentation, and stretch marks. Microneedling is an insertion of fine short sterilized needles for skin rejuvenation. It helps in generating new collagen and elastin. The device used for micro-needling is known as the derma roller. It is also sometimes used in combination with other skin treatments.
Microneedling is a simple office-based procedure. The dermis, which is the first layer of skin, is involved in this procedure without disrupting the epidermis. The area to be treated is anesthetized for 45 minutes to one hour. After that, the derma roller is administered in vertical, horizontal, and oblique directions. It creates evenly spaced punctures in the skin for generating new collagen for toned skin. Pin-point bleeding can occur but is easily controllable. The entire procedure takes 10-20 minutes.
Sessions for micro-needling?
It depends on the type of treatment, but some may need a four-six session over several months to obtain the desired skin. There should be a minimum separation time of 4-6 weeks between each session.
