Even though many people embrace the fact with open arms that aging is inevitable, looking old is not a compulsion. Our skin is the largest external organ of the body that provides a natural defensive barrier to the outer world. If properly taken care of, it can either say about your good health or can make you look tired and worn-out in case you fail to regularly nourish your skin along with maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Micro needling skin rejuvenation is one of those fast-growing techniques that have gained immense popularity in addressing a host of skin issues and allowing the skin to regain its lost radiance.
Micro Needling Skin Rejuvenation
The concept of micro needling has been emerging for over a decade. Initially, it was done using a simple hand roller studded with tiny needles. Nowadays, it has been modernized to an electrical hand-piece that comes with adjustable needle lengths which can be customized to the individual needs for every patient. Ideally, the needle should not penetrate deeper than the epidermal-dermal junction.
Micro Needling Skin Rejuvenation: Treatment Procedure
The first step is an application of a topical numbing agent on the area that needs to be treated. Once the skin is numbed, a handheld device with tiny needles moving at high speed penetrates the epidermal layer of the skin till a certain depth. This micro needling punctures the skin creating controlled wounds that are deep enough to generate a pinkish inflammation. However, the setting should be changed depending on the areas that tend to have relatively thinner skin and are quite sensitive. These areas may include the area near the eyes, around the lips, and on the forehead.
There are several needle settings available for micro needling that can be adjusted depending on the severity of skin issues and intensity of the treatment. For treating open pores on the face (such as pores on the sides of your nose), the efficacy of the treatment increases when each pore is individually needled. Moreover, there are micro needling kits that come with short and fine needles of approximately 0.2mm in depth and are exclusively designed for home treatments. One can use these kits 2-3 times in a week to reduce oil production, pores on the face, fine lines, and to increase the effectiveness of topical applications.
One of the positive things about the treatment is that these can be performed in a simple office/clinic setting without the need for extensive training or excessively pricey equipment. The treatment is well-tolerated by most patients with minimal downtime and guaranteed positive results. Additionally, micro needling skin rejuvenation treatments are often customized by going a bit deeper on those areas that require a more aggressive approach.
However, heavily sun-damaged skin cannot be reversed with micro needling as they do not go that deep into the skin. Also, patients with active acne breakouts should avoid the treatment as the needles may spread the bacteria and make it even worse.
