Microneedling therapy is a treatment aimed at getting rid of aging signs. It can be effectively used to treat several skin blemishes. For instance, it can be applied to get rid of wrinkles, scars among other aging signs. It is also referred to as collagen induction therapy. The procedure has been in use for many years, but it has gained popularity in the recent days due to several benefits associated with it.
It is a therapy which involves the use of fine needles which puncture the skin to create tiny invisible wounds. The wounds created on the top layer of the skin lead to stimulation of the wound healing process in the body which leads to skin rejuvenation. The process can be undertaken by a plastic surgeon, dermatologist, or even patients at home through the application of a dermaroller. The procedure works like laser therapy, but it uses mechanical means to puncture the skin.
The therapy is suitable for people who are looking for ways of fighting aging signs and other skin blemishes. For example, if you will like to reduce fine lines, it can work for you. Other cases where the procedure can be applied include the following:
Reducing deep wrinkles on the forehead
Repairing visible acne scars on patients
Treating those affected with sun damage and pigmentation
Tightening loose skin on older women
