The need for radiant skin:
This is something that all of us strive to achieve. That perfectly flawless skin which glows and is blemish free, helping us to portray our natural beauty. But there are many things that come in the way of us achieving this, including damage from sunlight, damage from the various chemicals we use, and damage from the various treatments that we put our skin through. All of this results in so much of damage to our skin, including the blemishes and pigmentation which occurs as well as the development of wrinkles.
So it’s only natural the each one of us tries very hard to maintain the perfect skin care routine, so that we can have that spotlessly beautiful skin, and to reverse the effect of all the damage that occurs to our skin on a daily basis. One of the latest developments in the world of skincare, is the micro needling treatment, which has proven to be effective a variety of skin related problems, especially when carried out by a skin specialist in Indirapuram. For those of you who are wondering what micro needling is all about, read ahead to find out all you need to know about it.
What is micro needling treatment?
It is a dermatological treatment that makes use of a natural process in the skin. It is carried out by using a small hand held roller device, whose surface is fitted with a number of very small needles. And when this device I rolled over the surface of the skin, the needles have a pricking effect on the skin, which tend to make holes in the top most layer of the skin, which is called the epidermis.
When this puncturing occurs, your body tends to interpret it as wounds which are occurring in the skin, and the body’s natural reaction is to try and heal these wounds. Therefore the process of healing is activated, which increases the production of collagen, elastin and various other proteins which are needed for the formation of new skin. The formation of new cells and skin tissue is promoted as a result of this treatment and this is how micro needling helps to bring about a rejuvenated look to your skin.
The reason why you should attempt micro needling as part of your skin care routine, is because it makes use of the natural process in your body, without the use of anything artificial or nay harmful chemicals, which may in the long run do more harm than good.
The effects of micro needling can be boosted:
This rejuvenating effect of micro needling cam be boosted with the use of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy. Plasma is a constituent of the blood which circulates in our body, and contains a high concentration of nutrients such as proteins which help promote growth. The plasma can easily be separated from your blood, and used at the puncture sites following the micro needling treatment in order to promote healing at these sites.
Since the plasma is derived from your own blood, you don’t have to worry about its application having any adverse effects on your skin such as the development of a reaction, allergies or even rejection the plasma. Before the micro needling treatment begins, our nurse will draw out blood from a vein in your arm, and this blood is then centrifuged at high speed, in order to separate the plasma and blood cells.
This separated plasma is then taken out and once the punctures have been placed using micro needling, the PRP is rubbed onto these puncture sites using the fingers, so that they are delivered deep into the skin. The use of PRP like this ensures that the healing process is boosted with the necessary nutrients, and helps it occur faster.
The changes that micro needling brings about:
There are a number of changes you will be able to witness in your skin once you go through this treatment. These include:
Rejuvenation of skin – micro needling leaves you skin feeling and looking younger, because it helps to restore the elasticity and strength present in younger skin, and helps reverse changes such as thinning of the skin and formation of wrinkles.
Helps to get rid of scars and stretch marks – since there is formation of new skin associated with micro needling, it means that it helps to smooth out any scarring that may have been present, as well the stretch marks which can leave indentations.
Improves your complexion – uneven skin tone is a problem for many of us, and micro needling with its healing process and formation of new skin, means that we will be able to achieve an even skin tone almost immediately, once the healing process is set in action.
