What is Microneedling and what are the benefits for our face?

In the age of innovation and endless opportunities to improve our appearance, beauty treatments have become an integral part of our self-care routine. One of the latest trends in the beauty world is microneedling. If you want to enjoy flawless skin and give it a youthful glow again, then microneedling could be the key!

In this article, we will tell you in more detail what this procedure is and what the benefits are for our facial skin.

What is Microneedling and what are its benefits?

Microneedling is a non-invasive procedure that stimulates collagen production in the skin. Collagen is its main component, responsible for elasticity, firmness and density. Over the years, its production decreases, leading to the appearance of wrinkles, loss of elasticity and uneven complexion. This effect is achieved by the controlled penetration of tiny microneedles into the facial skin, forming microscopic channels in the epidermis. The idea behind this technique is to stimulate the skin’s natural regeneration and improve its texture and tone. In this way, the production of collagen and elastin is promoted, resulting in a number of cosmetic benefits.

In addition, the procedure has other benefits for the skin. Can improve its texture by reducing the appearance of acne sores, pigment spots, stretch marks and cuts, and also facilitates the penetration of skin care products you use, such as – various serums containing hyaluronic acid. This means that your skin will be more prepared to absorb and use the beneficial ingredients from them. Other benefits of microneedling include:

  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles – This treatment is recommended to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, making the skin smoother and more youthful.
  • Smoothes and improves skin texture – Microneedling helps to smooth out skin unevenness and texture, scars and other imperfections, also giving a real glow and freshness.
  • Increases skin elasticity – Collagen and elastin are responsible for maintaining skin elasticity. Microneedling can help increase the production of these proteins, resulting in firmer and healthier skin.
  • Reduces pigmentation – This type of therapy can help in reducing freckles, blemishes and uneven skin tones by helping to regulate melanin production.
  • Improves skin hydration – Microneedling can help improve skin hydration by making it more able to retain moisture.
  • Painless and quick procedure – Microneedling usually does not cause significant painful sensation and does not require long recovery.

How does the procedure work?

The microneedling procedure is usually painless and performed in a professional cosmetic studio by a professional cosmetologist. He starts the job by cleaning and disinfecting the face and applying a special gel or cream that helps the microneedling device glide over the skin more smoothly. The cosmetologist then applies a local anesthetic to reduce discomfort. Once the anaesthetic has taken effect, the cosmetologist begins to perform smooth movements gently on the face with the device, which is equipped with microneedles that penetrate the upper layers of the skin, creating microchannels in the skin that stimulate the natural regeneration processes.

Although you won’t feel pain, individual reactions may vary and some clients might experience mild discomfort, swelling or redness immediately after the procedure itself. These symptoms usually subside within a few days. Repetition of microneedling over a period of time is usually recommended to achieve the best results. The procedure is usually well tolerated and can be performed within 30-60 minutes. The number of sessions needed depends on the skin condition and desired results. Typically 3-5 sessions are recommended, with 4-6 weeks in between.

What are the risks of microneedling?

Microneedling is generally safe, but there are some potential risks, including:

  • Infection – If the skin is not properly cleaned and disinfected before the procedure, there is a risk of developing an infection.
  • Hyperpigmentation – In rare cases, hyperpigmentation can develop, especially in people with darker skin.
  • Scarring – In very rare cases, scarring may form.

After the microneedling procedure, it is important to follow some recommendations for better results:
