Micro needling is a surgical procedure that involves injecting tiny needles into the dermis (under the skin) to stimulate new collagen growth.
Collagen is the main structural protein in connective tissues and it is responsible for giving human skin its elasticity and suppleness. Collagen regeneration is necessary if we want our skin to stay young and strong for years to come.
Micro needling is often used on patients with psoriasis and other skin conditions. Micro needling is also commonly used in the treatment of athlete’s foot and dermatitis. Micro needling is an invasive procedure which can cause some swelling and redness of the skin during the healing period. However, many patients report excellent results after micro needling. Some people who have had micro needling say that their skin feels smoother and softer than they ever have before.
Micro needling is done by inserting a needle through tiny punctures into the skin and then puncturing the dermis again with another needle to inject collagen into the area.
The small needles make the microneedles unique from other types of needles and they allow a greater amount of blood to be injected into the area because the small puncture doesn’t leave a needle hole in the skin.
Microneedle needling is typically performed on individuals with mild to moderate dryness and inflammation of the skin. The process typically begins with the doctor carefully opening up the skin by making several tiny punctures with a small sterile needle. When a needle enters the skin, small blood vessels are punctured that allow the collagen gel to flow into the area. This creates a very soft and pliant effect.
After the needle is removed, the patient will be given an antibiotic and the wound will heal for a few days. The wound is closed using a bandage and any inflammation and swelling is treated by applying an anti-inflammatory cream.
Micro needling can be performed on adults and children and is recommended for patients with mild to moderate dryness and inflammation of the skin. Micro needling can be performed on patients with a variety of skin conditions including psoriasis, eczema, acne and other inflammatory skin conditions.
and can be used in combination with topical treatments such as creams and ointments.
Because the collagen growth process occurs naturally in the body, this form of micro needling does not require surgery and is considered non-surgical. Because the procedure is non-invasive and non-surgical, micro needling is usually covered under your health insurance policy. This means that you don’t have to worry about having to pay high fees to a plastic surgeon just to get this procedure done.
There is still no absolute cure for wrinkles, lines and fine lines, but micro needling can help slow down or stop collagen growth. If you have been struggling with those unsightly signs of aging for a long time, collagen injections may be your answer. If you are interested in trying micro needling for facial skin rejuvenation, contact your doctor and ask about the treatment options available to you.
With collagen injections, the collagen in skin care products is injected directly into the skin where it stimulates the production of new cells. The collagen injected into the skin is made from a special gel that is similar to the skin’s own collagen.
The new cells that are created to make the skin look younger and reduce lines and wrinkles.
While collagen injection treatments can give your skin the youthful appearance you want, the amount of collagen that is injected is limited. Even though collagen can be produced by the body in larger quantities, if you don’t take in enough nutrients it doesn’t have the ability to repair itself. This means that the results you get from collagen injections are not permanent.
Micro needling involves only a very small amount of collagen being injected into the skin. The results can be dramatic, as the collagen that is injected is able to penetrate deeply. Because the collagen is absorbed so deeply, there is less chance of the skin repairing itself and less chance that your body will produce the additional collagen needed.
With this type of micro needling techniques, you will be able to get the results you want with less hassle and less money. You will have an improved complexion, smoother skin and an improved skin texture. If you have tried all other methods of facial skin care without success and would like to experience the same results as well, this may be the way for you.
