Micro-needling, better than surgery or lasers?

Micro-Needling is one the newest, easiest and most effective skin treatments available and is a process which can be carried out clinically along with home care.  As the amazing process gains awareness it is important to understand, what skin needling is, how it works, and whether it is a suitable treatment for you.

Scars, wrinkles, stretch mark’s and uneven skin tone are all lacking collagen. If your body would produce more collagen then you wouldn’t get them. Micro-needling offers Mother Nature a helping hand by encouraging collagen production in the skin, which helps prevent or reverse their formation. The technique of Micro-Needling has been shown to increase the remolding of the skin by creating thousands of microscopic channels thru the skin, to increase the formation of new tissue by activating the body’s wound healing cascade(homeostasis-inflammation-proliferation-tissue remodeling).

The micro-channeling causes the release of growth factors that promote scar-less healing and the deposition of normal woven collagen rather than scar collagen. There are various delivery systems in micro-Needling, but Micro-Needling via a roller system, which creates literally thousands of channels thru the epidermis, appears to be most effective. The roller system method is safe, cost effective, and simple. While it takes six weeks for collagen synthesis and about six months for the full effect of the treatments, the common response by patients after the initial treatment is that their skin has a “glow” and that fine lines are diminished.

Many clinical studies have proven that skin Micro-Needling is more effective than or as powerful as others including laser resurfacing, chemical peels or dermabrasion. ( micro-rolling can generate up to 500,000 micro-channels in 10 minutes – 1,000 per square cm – comparing to a fractional laser treatment which generates 2,000 micro-thermal zone per square cm after 3~4 treatments).

How can Micro-Needling help me?

Wrinkles-Micro-Needling can be used to reduce deep wrinkles, fine wrinkles, skin lines and creases such as laughter lines, crow’s feet, smile lines, wrinkles on the forehead or scowl lines, creases around the mouth or lips – such as smoker’s mouth, on the neck and jaw line (including jowl lines), the chest (décolleté), the backs of the hands and more.

Stretch Marks-Stretch mark treatment is just one of the countless benefits associated with using Micro-needling. Stretch marks come about when the skin is forced to stretch rapidly. The surface layer of skin isn’t affected, but the dermis underneath becomes thinner and develops tiny tears. The blood vessels that lie under the skin show through, giving the stretch marks a reddish color. Later, when the blood vessels contract, the purplish color fades to a paler skin tone.

The most common causes of stretch marks are pregnancy (around 75 to 90 percent of mothers develop stretch marks at some point during pregnancy), growth spurts in teenagers, rapid muscle growth in weight lifters and weight loss or weight gain.

The process of reducing stretch marks or treating stretch marks occurs as the roller causes the production of new elastin and collagen fibers in the skin. The stretch marks gradually fill in, the skin grows thicker, becomes tighter, and the elasticity is restored. The speed at which stretch marks reduction can be achieved varies depending on the severity of the stretch marks, but visible changes can be detected in as little as a week with dramatic results in a month or less.

Cellulite-Cellulite therapy and even cellulite removal can be accomplished with frequent treatments with a Micro-Needle roller. Anti Cellulite therapy may be carried out up to five times per week with the roller on the legs, thighs, hips, buttocks (bottom), stomach, and arms.

 Hair loss/Alopecia-Limiting hair loss and baldness is an area which a lot people ask about. In recent studies, over a 3 month period, men who used a Micro Needling Roller experienced an increase in hair growth in addition to an average of 80 percent reduction in hair loss. The hair restoration and regrowth process has been shown to aid thinning hair, balding, bald spots, receding hairlines, alopecia and more conditions.

Acne/Surgery ScarsAcne scarring reduction and acne scarring treatment are frequent uses for Micro-Needling, in addition to treating surgery scars, pitted skin, large pores, chicken pox scars, burn scars, ice pick scars, appendectomy scars (appendix scar), burn scars, surgical scars, caesarian section scars, breast enlargement scars and tummy tuck scarring treatment. The result of using Micro-Needling is incredible.
