MICRONEEDLING FOR THE BODY
MICRONEElDING FOR THE BODY
Microneedling, a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation technique, has gained significant popularity for its effectiveness and minimal downtime. This procedure involves using a specialised device equipped with fine needles to create tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin.
These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural wound healing processes, resulting in cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production. The boost in collagen and elastin helps to rejuvenate the skin, giving it a more youthful, radiant appearance.
Microneedling has emerged as a highly effective treatment method for various skin concerns, particularly in diminishing the appearance of scars, alleviating burn marks, and reducing stretch marks.
Who can benefit from microneedling?
Microneedling is a versatile treatment suitable for a wide range of individuals looking to improve the appearance and health of their skin. It’s particularly beneficial for those with:
- Stretch Marks: Often seen after pregnancy, rapid weight gain or loss, and growth spurts during adolescence. Stretch marks can develop on the stomach, thighs, buttocks, breasts and arms.
- Scars and burns: Including those resulting from surgeries, and injuries.
- Uneven Skin Texture and Tone: Including those caused by sun damage and aging.
This treatment is safe for most skin types and tones, offering a less invasive alternative to laser therapies. However, it’s not recommended for individuals with certain skin conditions, like active inflammation, in the targeted areas. A consultation is essential to determine if microneedling is the right option for you.
How does micro needling work?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that can be performed in a short time. Here’s what to expect during the procedure:
- Before the procedure begins, a numbing cream will be applied to the targeted area to ensure minimal discomfort.
- I will then use a handheld device, equipped with fine needles, to create tiny punctures in the skin.
- This device will be gently glided across the surface of the skin, creating numerous micro-injuries that activate the skin’s innate healing processes.
- Following the microneedling session, a calming cream or serum will be applied to the treated area, aiding in the healing and rejuvenation process.
The procedure typically takes around 1-2 hours, depending on the size of the treatment area. Patients may experience some redness and swelling after the procedure, but this typically subsides within a few days.
