Some users refer to Microneedling as Skinneedling and Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). This therapy involves using a handheld skin roller. This roller has a number of fine pointed needles on its surface, which will cause microscopic punctures on the surface of your skin. The Microneedle roller has needles that range from 1mm to 3mm in length and the punctures only penetrate the topmost layer of your skin. Using the Microneedle activates the natural wound healing process by enhancing the production of collagen and elastin.
The microscopic punctures stimulate collagen production in the top layer of your skin. The needle will also break some of the blood vessels that are situated directly under the surface of your skin. The blood clotting creates the proper environment for the formation of collagen and elastin. These are some of the important elements that help in the rejuvenation of the pores and skin.
The Microneedle may sound a little drastic but the approach occurs on a microscopic level and the outward trauma is negligible. Before using the Microneedle, you will have to use some agents to numb the pores and skin. This therapy is not painful and you will have only a tingling sensation. The Microneedle therapy can be performed on all skin types, including sensitive skin. After the therapy, you will enjoy tighter, thicker and smoother skin. This will also ensure increased flow of blood to the areas of defective healing to minimize the scars (including acne scars) and fine lines on the surface of your skin.
Additional advantages of using the Microneedle therapy is minimized stretch marks and hair loss. The Microneedle therapy can be repeated every 6 to 8 weeks as long as your skin is healed. The formation of collagen can continue up to twelve months after a single treatment.
Instructions To Have An Effective Micro Needle Therapy
You will have to clean your skin well with lukewarm water and then apply your anti-aging cream. By exerting gentle pressure, you will have to roll the Microneedle roller over each area of your face. This should be done first vertically and then horizontally. You can use the roller once or twice a week, until the skin is toned perfectly.
You can increase the frequency to 3 to 5 times a week later. Many of the skin care consultants recommend using this roller to get rid of the stretch marks and scars to get a glowing skin surface.
