Virtually all medical treatments and modern-day technologies symbolize a connection between the actual procedure itself and your body’s own ability to heal itself. Micro needling is an innovative skin rejuvenation process for both the face and body and also works as an acne scar revision tool as well.
Many medical spas employ a variety of high-tech devices, some of which may include lasers, radio frequency, and ultrasound. All of these can help in the fight against aging and to perform amazing, skin-enhancing miracles. Lately, however, the latest weapon to fight aging is micro needling. This procedure uses a non-invasive and non-traumatic technology that employs a device that’s no bigger than a simple fountain pen. Many patients can attest to its extraordinary results and are very happy they decided to get the procedure done.

For most people, when they hear the term ‘needling’, it often makes them panic. However, just to be clear, microneedling is not any of the following:
- It is not a DIY method
- It is not an injection of any kind
- It is not a piercing
Micro needling is essentially a more sophisticated and complex version of the technique that involves the Derma Roller, which is also a great tool regarding medical technology. In fact, both of these methods employ the use of micro-fine needles. However, different from the Derma Roller, micro needling enables the technician to alter the puncture depth without the need to switch rollers. And so, the micro-tiny channels that are completely invisible to the naked eye, are able to successfully do the following two things:
- Enable active ingredients to directly penetrate the dermis at the point whereby they can instantly start working.
- Encourage your body to create new collagen as well as elastin, which is the connective tissue of the skin and the key structural matrix that’s responsible for the skin’s elasticity and smooth texture.
When it comes to dealing with refining, smoothing, and plumping the skin, the secret and challenge is to get to the dermis, which is often very difficult. The majority of topical medications can only penetrate the top layer of the body’s epidermis. On the other hand, any supplement or oral medication must travel all the way through the digestive system before entering into the bloodstream and begin to work.
The solution is micro needling.
It has the ability to deliver full-strength actives precisely where necessary and with a desirable versatility as well. Naturally, the number of medicines and treatments used will vary for each patient along with their specific condition. For those patients who wish to firm up their neck or face, usually at least four sessions are necessary in addition to vitamins A and C. Based on how bad they are, acne scars typically respond quite well to vitamin A and may require many procedures over the course of several months in order to see dramatic and desirable results.
Micro needling can additionally be used as a simple complexion refresher. Used with HA (hyaluronic acid) and antioxidants, microneedling can instantly volumize, which makes it the ideal treatment to use a couple of days before an important event. Although highly effective, keep in mind that it’s not uncommon following the first couple of treatments to make your skin feel like it’s sunburned and even a bit red.
