Hundreds of years ago, during the reign of Queen Cleopatra, microneedling was initially practiced in ancient Egypt and India. Throughout the Middle Ages, it became widely used in Europe as a skin infection and wrinkle-reduction remedy. It is now regarded as one of the best treatments for minimally invasive cosmetic operations.
In recent years, microneedling has become a well-liked method of cosmetic skin treatment. Stretch marks, wrinkles, UV damage, acne scars, and general skin tone can all be improved with its usage. We’ll go over what microneedling is, how it functions, its many advantages, as well as any hazards, in this blog article.
What Is It?
In order to stimulate the creation of collagen and promote cell regeneration, microscopic punctures are made in the top layers of skin using tiny needles. Not only does this result in a clearer complexion, but it can also facilitate the greater absorption of skincare products like serums for improved outcomes.
What Tools Are Used?
At Park Meadows Aesthetics, we use the Procell™ Microchanneling system which is an evolved form of microneedling. It works by creating invisible channels in your skin that trigger a cascade of natural rejuvenation. As they heal, these channels produce new, high-quality collagen and elastin, as well as other beneficial elements such as peptides and epidermal growth factors. The result is fresher, healthier skin. Procell™ relies on the gentle application of tiny micro-filaments to stimulate the skin with little actual damage. The Livra Microchannel Delivery Solution used during treatment as well as the included aftercare products work to enhance the skin rejuvenation process.
What Are the Risks?
The side effects of microneedling may include soreness where the needles were inserted, pain, bleeding, bruising, infection, excessive redness or swelling that could last up to four weeks, post-treatment sensitivity, hyperpigmentation, milia (tiny white spots on your face), possible allergic reaction to topical products or anesthetics used before treatment, scarring if not performed by a skilled professional, etc. It should be noted that these side effects are rare and usually mild and treatable.
