Micro-needling has become very popular during the early years of the 21st century. This is because it has an amazing ability to encourage your body to produce more collagen without the need for surgery and without the need for an invasive procedure. Micro-needling has been shown to be an effective way to address fine lines and wrinkles, among other unwanted skin conditions.
Fine lines and wrinkles happen because as your skin gets older, it produces less collagen and less elastin. Micro-needling helps because the micro-channels that are made in your skin encourage your body to make more collagen and elastin. As this happens, wrinkles start to fade, and fine lines all but disappear. As your skin produces more elastin and as your skin produces more collagen, it becomes tighter. This helps to reduce the dreaded thinning of your skin that is often associated with getting older.
Many people are battling with premature aging. This means that their skin has more wrinkles than a person of their age should have. Again, micro-needling can help. It triggers collagen growth, and so the factors behind premature aging start to disappear. Another nice thing about this treatment is that since it does make micro-channels in the skin, it makes little openings in the skin that allow topical treatments to penetrate to the deeper layers of the skin where they can have the most effect.
In addition to fine lines and wrinkles, something that can make you look older than what you really are is scars. Micro-needling has been shown time and time again to make most types of scars fade.
The benefits that come from micro-needling don’t stop there. Micro-needling has helped many people address issues with hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation is something that happens often on individuals with a darker complexion. Micro-needling can help you shed that top layer of abnormally dark skin, revealing the younger, lighter, more evenly colored skin underneath.
Micro-needling is a very powerful tool. Whether you are battling with large pores, acne, age spots, fine lines or wrinkles, it is worth it for you to take the time to investigate a little bit more about this procedure.
