Microneedling deserves recognition as a staple in our skincare routines. To appreciate its importance, let's begin with collagen: the miracle protein that gifts us with a youthful glow.
With sufficient collagen, we enjoy smaller pores, less pronounced wrinkles, tighter skin, and a smoother texture. Unfortunately, our natural collagen production begins to decline from our mid-twenties onwards. And despite popular belief, oral supplements don't offer much help. This is where microneedling comes to the rescue. By initiating a process akin to wound healing, this procedure stimulates the production of - you've guessed it - more collagen!
Microneedling is a medical procedure.
Even though microneedling has gained popularity as an effective skincare treatment, it's essential to understand that it is indeed a medical procedure. The process involves using a device that swiftly and accurately inflicts micro-injuries to the skin, penetrating all the way down to the dermis. These deliberate injuries trigger the body's natural healing process, thereby stimulating collagen and elastin production. Over a period of six weeks, the results become evident as the skin appears tighter, smoother, and rejuvenated. Due to its medical nature, the procedure should only be carried out in medical settings by trained professionals to ensure safety and efficacy.
Recovery: how long and how bad?
Recovering doesn't usually require significant downtime. Most individuals can expect a period of 1-3 days of redness similar to sunburn, followed by minor swelling in the first two days. After this, there may be slight peeling for a further 2-5 days. By the end of the initial week, visible improvements in the skin's texture and appearance can typically be observed. Although it's not a procedure that necessitates taking time off work, it's advisable to apply healthier makeup options that won't block your pores, such as mineral-based products, especially in the days following treatment.
