What is the average time it takes to see results from microneedling?
Microneedling’s effectiveness is dependent on how quickly new cells are regenerated, and how much collagen is produced. You will typically need to have multiple sessions in order to reap the full benefits of microneedling.
Experts claim that skin will show some improvement after seven days. It can take up to a month for visible results.
Side effects of microneedling
Microneedling is a procedure that breaks the natural skin barrier. This can have adverse side effects, as we will discuss below.
1. Bleeding and Skin Trauma
The microneedling area can cause bleeding and bruises.
This procedure can cause inflammation and pain. If the pain is unbearable, your doctor may recommend a painkiller.
There is a high risk of infection if the equipment used to microneedling are not properly sterilized.
Some people may experience extreme skin irritation after microneedling. Some skincare products may cause allergies. To keep your skin hydrated, use a soothing moisturizer that is gentle and not too drying.
Rarely, microneedle treatment can cause scarring and lines that won’t disappear.
There are no painless alternatives to micro-needling
Individuals have different tolerance levels for pain. You can also try painless options for skin problems if your pain tolerance is low.
Copper-containing compounds have been shown to increase skin’s production of collagen and elastin. Gels containing copper-peptides may be an effective antiaging solution for wrinkles and lines.
2. For Better Penetration
The combination of an enhancing ingredient and ultrasound mediated cavitation can increase skin penetration. This is when ultrasound creates bubbles of liquid which burst under high pressure and force the product into your skin.
3. Smoother, flawless skin
To achieve a smooth, toned complexion, you can use chemical exfoliators like AHA (alpha-hydroxy acids). These exfoliators can also be used to reduce hyperpigmentation, and create a smoother complexion.
It is an easy way to treat a variety of skin conditions. It is important to discuss your treatment goals with your dermatologist. It is important to know how long it takes to heal, and what precautions you should take. You can buy a variety of microneedle rolling tools on the market that you can use at your home. However, it is best to have the procedure performed by an expert.
