[:en]The Truth About Microneedling[:]

[:en]Are you worried about the texture of your facial skin? If you answered yes then you are one of the almost 99% of all women who have issues with their skin. Whether it’s age spots, wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage, or simple issues with the overall pigment of the skin, you need to do something about it. After all, you’ll feel your best when you are confident that your skin looks great. One of the newest methods of improving skin’s texture and tone is by undergoing microneedling. You’ve probably seen many different commercials and skin care articles about this procedure and may have considered buying a kit to use in the comfort of your own home. While this sounds like a good idea, rest assured that it is not. Here\’s why.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a skin care procedure that has been in practice for upwards of 20 years. It didn’t reach full popularity until recently, which is why it’s just now appearing in the mainstream. This procedure consists of running a small roller with pointed needles on all sides of it, over the facial skin. As you can imagine, the procedure results in some unpleasant, bloody marks on the face, although they serve a very specific purpose.

How Does It Work?

Microneedling works by stimulating the collagen in the face. The trauma caused by the needles essentially spurs your facial collagen into action. New collagen is produced to repair the trauma, making you look younger as a result. Since the main cause of aging is a lack of this collagen, as your skin heals, it will take care of many of the issues that plague your face, including sun damage, signs of aging, and acne scars.

Clinic or Home? Which Is Best?

Despite the many microneedling kits that are sold in stores and online, it’s best to have this procedure done in a clinical setting. When you have a professional handle your microneedling, then you’ll benefit in many ways. The overall location is cleaner and more sanitary so you won’t have to worry about an infection setting in. On top of this, a professional knows the proper way to do the procedure – and has done it many times in the past. You can’t compare this to someone who has just read the manual. Microneedling is something that sounds easy in the beginning, but it really is not, especially if you want it done properly. You are much better off having the procedure in a clinical setting. Plus, if you have acne and run the microneedling wand over any open lesions or cysts, you run the risk of contaminating the rest of your skin and spreading around the bacteria. This is something that a professional would know and understand – not someone attempting the procedure in their home bathroom.

Overall, microneedling is a great procedure with a reliable track record, as long as it is done properly in a clinical setting. Don’t fall for the “I can do it at home hype.” Instead, call us at Regenevéda today to have it done right.
