Clear skin is one of those attributes that can go unnoticed, when you have it, it may be difficult to see back in the mirror, only noticing when others compliment you on what they see as an effortless beauty. However, when your skin is unclear, splotchy, or filled with scars either from injury or remnants from your battle with acne, it can feel like your skin is the only thing others notice about you. You may have tried creams and lotions, diet changes, maybe even prayers and potions, but now it may be time to try a professionally administered method that has been shown to alleviate scarring and restore skin’s vibrancy and youthful appearance. If you’re wondering about just what microneedling is and how it can help you, keep reading!
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a type of medical procedure that uses incredibly tiny needles to pierce the skin. This is done with the intention of encouraging the body to not only heal the puncture site but also the surrounding areas by upregulating, or creating more of, collagen production. Collagen is your skin’s structural material, giving it support and strength.
What Is Microneedling Used For?
Because of its restorative properties, microneedling has a variety of uses including:
- Scars, Whether Due To Acne Or Injury
- Sagging Skin
- Wrinkles and Fine Lines
- Stretch Marks
- Uneven Skin Tones
- Dark Spots
This is not an exhaustive list. To find out if your skin malady can be helped by microneedling, speak to anyone on the helpful team at New Look Skin Center.
Can I Use Microneedling At Home?
Though technically you can, it isn’t recommended. For one, it can be unsafe. Using many needles, tiny as they are, to puncture the skin can not only lead to bleeding, but if the microneedling procedure is done incorrectly, can lead to long-term complications due to infection. Aside from the risk to your health and safety, the products available to the public are smaller, meaning that the results may be less noticeable or effective. So, microneedling at home can be markedly more unsafe and less effective.
There’s Nothing Small About Microneedling
Microneedling has the potential to restore your skin and have it look clearer than you imagined. However, it is important to have the procedure administered by trusted and experienced professionals. Thankfully, there’s the New Look Skin Center! Give us a call today at 818-662-5005!
