Ever wonder why babies have such plum and plush skin? It’s because a babies skin regenerates super fast! As we get older, the regeneration process slows down and dead skin (Keratin) accumulates on the skin’s surface making it harder for lotions and creams to penetrate down to the basal layer were skin renewal occurs. As we age, our skin continues to loose collagen which cause loose skin and sagging. The dermal and epidermal junction where skin renews itself.
Most people are not aware that Microneedling has been used for a long time in Aesthetic Medicine.
Infact, as far back as the 1900s when it was first used by German Dermatologist Dr. Enrst Kromayer who used motor powered dental burs of all things to treat hyperpigmentation, birthmarks and scars.
Microneedling made a resurgence in 1995 in the U.S. when Dr. Desmond Fernandes made public his findings on treating pigmentation problems, scars and stretch marks with his small needle stamp.
Microneedling is especially good for ethnic groups and people with darker skin tones because it does not have adverse reactions such post inflammatory hyperpigmentation which can occur with Laser resurfacing, IPL and even radiofrequency devices.
Microneedling is the best bang for your buck if you are on a budget because it is a quick procedure that takes about 20-30 minutes to perform. There is no downtime would you can continue to go to work or go about your business as you please. Microneedling costs a small fraction of what you will pay to have laser treatments or a surgical facelift. It is a gift that keeps on giving. With continued use, microneedling has the potential to transform you skin as the procedure can be repeated safely every 4 weeks.
Ideally, microneedling treatments are spaced out by every 4-6 weeks. This gives enough time for the skin to naturally generate collagen and elastin triggered by the procedure. Depending on the type of results and area of the body that needs treatments, 4 or up to about 8 treatments may be needed.
Microneedling is effective on arms, legs, abdomen, back and thighs as well as the face and neck.
Your therapy will be performed by a physician also trained in surgery. Microneedling by a medical doctor is far better than dermal rollers and pens DIY procedures done at home. Your health and safety is also too important to entrust your skin with anyone who may have sub par knowledge, sterile habits and training in microneedling.
