Although microneedling sounds scary, it actually does amazing things to your skin. It offers rejuvenation benefits by improving your skin tone and texture and treating a range of skin issues. Microneedling is worth considering if you have a dull skin with concerns like scars, wrinkles, and pigmentation.
Getting to know microneedling
At Cutis Laser Clinics in Singapore, we have the Dermapen 4, which is an advanced mechanized device used for skin needling. It creates thousands of miniscule needle punctures in the skin’s top layers. Dermapen 4 boasts increased power and speed, which facilitates faster wound healing and faster results.
The process of skin needling causes micro-trauma in the skin, which prompts an immune response. This results in a series of reactions that triggers the creation of new and healthy collagen. The immune response in the body, furthermore, allows the skin to spend more effort in fighting ailments.
Skin needling breaks up fibrous and uneven scar tissue and then stimulates the growth of new ones. The treatment also improves blood supply in the area of concern, providing a healthy foundation for new skin. It is also good to know that Dermapen offers scar less healing without any harsh side effects.
Why microneedling is worth a try
If you’re dealing with dull and rough skin, don’t hesitate to consider Dermapen microneedling. Here are the 5 reasons you should try skin needling:
1. Boosts collagen production
Microneedling is a Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) that involves creating micro-punctures to the skin. These stimulate the production of collagen and promote the regeneration of skin cells. The needle pricks also deliver nutrients to deeper skin layers, creating foundation for new, healthy skin.
2. Improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
As the skin needling procedure assists the skin’s ability to recreate and remodel collagen, it can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It can give you a refreshed and rejuvenated look by smoothing out lines and wrinkles and making them less noticeable.
3. Reduces the appearance of scars and stretch marks
Microneedling helps in activating the cascade of fibroblast inside the skin and growth hormone. This assists in generating more collagen, which is beneficial in smoothing out acne scars and stretch marks. The new Dermapen device also has a dedicated scar setting that can help with post-acne, surgical, burn, contracture, and striae scars.
4. Helps with pigmentation
Dermapen promotes optimized cell function without the use of heat or laser light, eliminating the risk of heat injury and hypopigmentation. This makes it a good option for treating melasma and hyperpigmentation. Dermapen also repairs the skin’s surface layers, helping you achieve brighter skin and even toned complexion.
5. Can be used on all skin types
Dermapen microneedling can be used on all skin types and address a wide range of skin problems. This is not always the case for laser treatments, as not everyone is a good candidate. The new Dermapen is also safer and more effective due to the adjustable settings that enable personalized treatment.
Results, pain, and downtime
There’s minimal discomfort during the procedure, but a numbing cream can be used to improve patient comfort. Many patients also describe the sensation as a deep facial with vibration. There are also mild side effects like redness and irritation, but this will subside within a few days following the treatment.
In most cases, there is no downtime and most patients are able to return to work the next day. The new and improved features of Dermapen 4 mean more accuracy and precision compared to older microneedling devices. It promises efficient skin rejuvenation, with visible results after just a few weeks of the procedure.
