Do dermatologists recommend Microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the use of tiny needles to puncture the skin. Dermatologists worldwide recommend it. The procedure can be used to treat acne scars, reduce wrinkles and stretch marks, and even get rid of cellulite on your thighs or buttocks. It does not take much time for this treatment to work either. You only need about three treatments spaced out at least six weeks apart to see results.
Why do dermatologists recommend micro-needling?
Dermatologists recommend this procedure because it does not take a lot of time to show results, and it can be used on various parts of the body.
Why is this treatment so effective?
Microneedling causes minor wounds in the skin that then triggers collagen production, which will help tighten up your skin. This procedure also works well for acne scars because it helps stimulate new cell growth and heal damaged tissue.
What are some benefits of microneedling?
Some of the benefits of this procedure include:
- Reducing wrinkles and stretch marks
- Getting rid of cellulite on your thighs or buttocks
- Stimulating new cell growth and healing damaged tissue for acne scars.
How to prepare for a session:
You will need to avoid makeup for about 24 hours before your session. You will also need to avoid any creams or moisturizers on the area you are getting microneedling done. Be sure to drink plenty of water and eat a healthy diet to help your skin heal.
You can also schedule a consultation with your dermatologist to see if this treatment is right for you, as they will be able to let you know what would work best in terms of the number of sessions needed, how often each session should take place, etc.
How long will it take to see results?
It takes about three treatments spaced out at least six weeks apart to see results. However, it depends on what you are looking for. If, for instance, you are looking for a more dramatic result (such as getting rid of stretch marks), you may need to have treatments every two weeks. If, however, you just want to reduce wrinkles and scars on your face, then three sessions spaced out six weeks apart would suffice.
What is the recovery time?
The treatment can take up to 12-24 hours in order to fully recover after each session. It, however, depends on what area of the body it was done. You will experience some redness at first which should dissipate within 24 hours. You’ll be able to use moisturizers and makeup soon enough but not right away. Make sure that if there are any follow-up appointments involved, you tell them beforehand, so they know when you need your makeup to be done.
Usually, you’ll need a few days off from work or school in order to give your body time to heal and recover after each session. This is not an overnight fix-it will take some time for the results to show up, but it should be worth it.
Are there any adverse side effects of microneedling?
This procedure is completely safe and has no adverse side effects. It should not be used on those who have skin cancer. Research published in the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology found that microneedling is an effective treatment for reducing acne scars, wrinkles, and stretch marks. The treatment will not only help with these skin issues, but it will also improve the texture of your skin and make you feel better about yourself.
