Dull skin seems to be one of those unavoidable side effects of aging. Skin loses that smooth and shiny appearance that youth once brought it.
The good news is that rejuvenating your skin is possible, pain-free, and easy. There are options that make this possible without forcing you to undergo a surgical procedure or deal with the side effects that accompany surgeries.
Micro-needling is one of the more advanced ways to rejuvenate skin. It represents the next step in keeping skin healthy, and clear without requiring invasive treatments that could harm your skin.
What is Micro-Needling?
To understand how micro-needling works, you first have to understand that there are several layers to your skin. These provide everything from color to form.
The top and middle layers tend to provide the look your skin gives. The dulling of your skin often coincides with imperfections and damage that reside within the epidermis and dermis layers.
Micro-needling utilizes incredibly fine needles to penetrate these layers of the skin. This leaves the top layer of your skin, the epidermis, intact while fostering the growth of new collagen and elastin.
Clogged pores, acne scars, and other imperfections can be treated through micro-needling.
Why Does It Rejuvenate Skin?
Micro-needling works by utilizing an incredibly selective and gentle approach to the controlled destruction of old cells within your skin. Once those old cells are gone, your skin becomes clearer as your skin repairs and rebuilds itself.
This happens without the need for damage to the epidermis or the hypodermis layers. Micro-needling does not cause scars, which is why it is one of the most preferable way to rejuvenate your skin.
What Benefits Does Micro-Needling Have?
There are numerous benefits unique to micro needling. The way it resurfaces the skin allows it to bring you benefits such as:
- Dramatically clearer skin.
- Better results from creams, lotions and skin supplements due to enhanced penetration.
- Non-allergenic, non-invasive, non-surgical skin resurfacing.
- The ability to be used on all types of skin, which includes ethnic skin.
Can Micro-Needling Be Combined With Other Treatments?
One of the biggest advantages of micro-needling is its ability to be combined with other treatments. This can allow your skin to look smooth, shiny, and as beautiful as it should look.
Micro-needling can be combined with topical treatments to enhance the results they bring. Things like chemical peels, nutritional creams and facials bring markedly better results due to the enhanced ability of these chemicals to penetrate deeper into the skin.
The best part is that micro-needling can lessen some of the unwanted side effects of these treatments while shortening the duration of others. The flaking associated with chemical peels, for example, may be expedited by the use of micro-needling.
It is worth noting that not all treatments are compatible with micro-needling. You should always consult with an experienced dermatological care provider before trying to combine two or more dermatological treatments to reduce the risk of complications.
