Microneedling: Procedure and Benefits! 

Aging has its own sets of challenges in terms of skincare. Not only does the skin lose its suppleness, but it also loses texture and volume. The results are wrinkles and fine lines. In fact, the appearance of wrinkles is considered to be the first sign of aging. 

Aging skin has dormant collagen. As a result, new and healthy skin cells aren’t formed. The older wrinkled ones keep getting more wrinkled. Naturally, it’s easy to figure out that collagen has a lot to do with the appearance of wrinkles. 

Thanks to science, there are some procedures that can make dormant collagen active. One such treatment is microneedling. 

Want to know what it is and will it really make your skin youthful again? If the answer is an affirmative ‘Yes’, then you’ll definitely have a fun time reading this informative guide. Dive in for all the details!

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure for skin correction. Some microneedles are inserted inside the skin of the patient. 

Did you know that skin has its own healing system? If wounded, the body’s collagen gets triggered and it starts producing new cells to replace the wounded ones!

So, yes, you guessed it right! The purpose behind inserting microneedles is to create many minuscule wounds. Once small wounds are created in the skin, the body will automatically activate the collagen that, in turn, will start actively producing healthy skin cells. 

Once the healthy skin cells will replace the wounded old ones that were wrinkly and dehydrated, your skin will naturally look younger because the new cells will be taut and supple. 

What’s the Difference Between Microneedling and RF Microneedling?

Let’s just say, the concept is the same, the only difference is that in RF microneedling, RF waves are used to heat the deepest layer of the skin. 

When RF heats the skin cells, it increases the flow of oxygen as well. More oxygen brings more blood. It restores the shine and luster that you lost to aging. 

In short, using RF on top of creating micro-wounds offers more dramatic results. Your doctor will be able to tell which of the two variations will be better for you!
