Interest in micro needling has increased over-time and is at an all-time high at the moment.
Why are people so interested in this topic? What are some of the most asked questions about micro needling? What should you know? Our team at Dermaquip is going to answer these questions and more in this article. Let’s dive in.
Why all the interest?
This is probably the first thing people want to know. “What’s all the hype around micro needling?” Well, the reason for the popularity has to do with the public’s interest in decreasing wrinkles, acne, stretch marks, scars, etc. Of course, this is nothing new. What is new, however, is how effective treatments with micro needling can be.
Why would anyone want micro needling?
Anyone who is interested in cleaning up their skin from blemishes, acne, stretch marks, and the like would benefit from micro needling treatments.
What are the most popular types of treatment?
Other than the items listed above, micro needling is most often used for treating the following:
- Deep wrinkles
- Fine lines
- Sun damage
- Rough skin
- Pore size
What are the side effects?
The great thing about micro needling is it’s non-invasive. Not only that, but micro needling has less side effects than other non-invasive treatments. Typically, a patient will experience red skin after micro needling. This will last for no more than 3 days. The most severe side effect could be mild swelling, but this is uncommon and isn’t severe. If swelling does occur, it won’t last long.
How is the procedure performed?
The treatment is very simple. The cosmetic surgeon will typically begin by numbing the skin as well as cleaning the skin. The next step involves a micro needle pen of some sort, which punctures the skin and produces thousands of micro punctures to the skin. Finally, Hyaluronic acid or Vitamin-C serum is applied to encourage collagen growth and skin renewal.
