Remove Stretch Marks and Scars With Micro-Needling
- Posted on: Sep 15 2015
Micro-needling is a method of causing micro injuries to the skin, which will safely force the skin to repair itself. Acne scars and stretch marks are skin blemishes that many people have, which is where micro-needling comes in handy.
When done correctly by a professional dermatologist, micro-needling improves the appearance of these skin blemishes, as well as many other types of skin problems.
However, you should understand a bit about how micro-needling works, the benefits, and whether or not you should try it yourself before you decide if it is right for you. If you try DIY (do-it-yourself) micro-needling without knowing how to do it properly, you may end up doing more harm to your skin than good.
What To Expect During Micro-Needling
What should you expect during micro-needling? Well, the feeling is not that bad – it is comparable to sandpaper being moved across the skin.
Micro-needling causes the micro injuries to the skin that we mentioned earlier. The repair process involves the skin’s natural creation of elastin and collagen, which heals and rejuvenates the skin. The best results come from treatment by a professional dermatologist.
• The main benefit is that the skin will become smoother and more radiant after only a week or so.
• The improvement can last for up to 6 months.
• Recovery time is speedy at just 2 days
Should You Do Micro-Needling To Yourself?
Generally, we do not recommend DIY micro-needling. There is a greater risk of infection and scarring. However, it is an effective procedure for minimizing acne scars if done properly by a dermatologist.
For those who are willing to take the risk of DIY micro-needling, dermatologists still recommend they consult a physician first.
Acne scars, stretch marks and other skin conditions can be treated with micro-needling. Interesting in learning more about micro-needling? Contact Cara Mia Medical Day Spa Today.
