Microneedling- A Non-surgical Treatment To Improve Your Skin’s Appearance

With collagen, you look younger and beautiful. If there is adequate collagen, it makes pores less noticeable, wrinkles and lines less deep, tightens the skin, and textures it smooth. But, unfortunately, collagen production decreases/reduces with age. And as a result, youthfulness and beauty get lost.

How disheartening it is? But, thankfully, there is a technology that helps so many hearts from breaking. And it’s known as microneedling treatment. Many people think that oral supplements would work and help in collagen production. But, actually, it doesn’t happen. This non-surgical treatment does wonders in a few days or weeks.

Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling is a non-surgical treatment. In this treatment, sterile, fine needles are used to create invisible, microscopic holes in the top layer of the skin, which is called the epidermis. The holes done on the top layer trigger the skin’s healing ability because a reaction takes place. As a result of this healing reaction, the release of growth factors takes place, causing an increase in the amount of collagen production.

Benefits of microneedling treatment 

  • Stimulate collagen and elastin production
  • Minimize pore size
  • Increase product absorption
  • Reduce the appearance of scars
  • Stimulate blood flow

Preparation for the microblading treatment 

Follow a gentle skincare routine - Microneedling treatment causes micro-traumas. But, if you don’t be kind to your skin, these micro-traumas can become worse. So, you should follow a gentle skincare routine before microneedling. For example, you should avoid over-exfoliation and other harsh steps.

Keep your skin’s barrier intact - Though for a few days, microneedling treatment breaks the skin’s barrier. So, you should prepare your skin for the same. Keep in mind that your skin’s barrier should break due to microneedling treatment and not lack of skincare. For this, you should choose a mild cleanser, nourishing moisturizer, and protective SPF during the daytime. This will keep your skin’s barrier intact.

Come with a fresh and toned face- Some preparations are required on the treatment day as well. You should clean your face using a mild cleaner and tone it. After toning, you should avoid putting on moisturizer or sunscreen and keep your skin bare. With this, there will be no additional barrier.

Aftercare for microneedling treatment 

Avoid exposure to heat and sunlight- As already said, the skin suffers from micro-traumas after microneedling treatment. Therefore, you should let your skin rest and calm down. For this, you should avoid exposing your skin to heat and sunlight. If you sweat, it will irritate you.

Continue your gentle skincare routine- The skin’s barrier is broken. So, using any harsh product on your skin can be harmful and affect the treatment result. So, you should continue your gentle skincare routine. For example, you should use mineral-based sunscreen instead of chemical-based sunscreen to avoid irritation.

Avoid makeup for the first 24-hours- There might be redness on your skin after microneedling treatment. You might like this, especially if there is an important event to attend. The only thing that you would prefer is makeup. There is nothing wrong with it but the results of the treatment will get affected. If you want to ensure maximum results, avoid makeup for the first 24 hours.

Microneedling treatment can do wonders if you prepare for it properly and follow the aftercare process. Also, you should listen to advice of the professional before and after the treatment.
