As a carefree individual, I have never been one to complete the extra mile pertaining to beauty. I was raised in an environment where beauty was associated with relaxed, natural home care. I do not mean, natural remedies, because, in all honesty, even that was farfetched for my family. I mean waking up to the splash of water against your skin and calling it a solid skin routine. This was probably where my acne came in to play. It was not until the late teens that I discovered a whole new world of esthetics. Although there are many components that build up this life-changing world of aesthetics, micro-needling took me by surprise with its amazing benefits. Before we get into the benefits, we first need to know what micro-needling is. Micro-needling has become one of the world’s most endeavored skin treatments. Why is micro-needling so sought after?
Micro-needling is a procedure that uses a controlled wound response to improve the appearance of the skin. What is the purpose of triggering a wound response? Triggering a wound response will aid the skin’s repair process and help stimulate collagen production and elastin. What tools help achieve this? There are many different methods for micro-needling that are being used, which include rollers, stamps, and automated devices. A crucial factor is the depth of the needle. What is the importance of the depth of the needle? Needle depths determine the aggressiveness of the procedure. For example, needle depths range from 0.1mm only affecting the epidermis, to 3.0mm, which can reach the reticular dermis. Needles with a lower depth are beneficial because they do not remove the surface skin while still stimulating growth factors to increase platelets and reinforce vessel walls. Longer needles aid in the treatment of more pronounced wrinkles or scarring. An important thing to know is that Estheticians can only perform with needles that are up to .3mm in depth. (In most states) Anything above that needs to be done by a medical professional. Now that we have a clearer understanding of what micro-needling is, we can talk about what we have all been waiting for. Benefits! We all want to invest wisely.
