Micro-needling creates microscopic punctures in the skin.
Micro-needling as the name suggests is an insertion of very small and short needles in the skin that helps the process for rejuvenation. When the body feels small pinpricks definitely the body will feel it and naturally would rush to heal them. After a couple of sittings you’ll have a baby skin and it will have more youthful appearance. The most popular device and pocket friendly for micro-needling has needles ranging from 0.5 to 2.5 millimeters.
You can get it done in the office or at home.
The benefit of micro-needling when done by your dermatologist is that it can also be done with PRP which makes it more effective. If you do it at home definitely it won’t be as effective as the one done in a clinic. When used by professionals they are safer despite the fact their needles are sharper. If you choose to do this at home regardless, try to use a clean, sterilized equipment to avoid any infection.
Micro-needling offers results instantly.
From micro-needling alone we can look very plump, fresh and luminous for a couple of weeks. It plumps the skin and yes, while your skin will appear luminous it will cause inflammation and swelling. Some people often see results right after a few sessions.
