Depending on your age, skin conditions, skin issues and how the treatment is done, the result of micro-needling can vary from subtle skin softening and improvement to drastic changes like erasing fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars Micro needling offers immediate results. Post the treatment, skin often tends to appear plump, pink, and luminous for a couple of weeks. On a short-term basis, it rejuvenates the skin, making it more radiant from inflammation and very superficial swelling.
Micro-needling also promises improvement over time. It stimulates dormant hair follicles and works to reduce cellulite while playing well with other skin regimens. If done properly, under the guidance of an expert dermatologist, there should be zero to negligible pain, side effects, or downtime from micro-needling, however, some may encounter minor skin irritation arising right after the treatment. Although, if ever done inappropriately at home, it can cause serious dermabrasion like scratching or burning discomfort, redness, irritation, marks or bleeding, and scarring on the skin in severe cases.
Micro-needling is a trusted treatment that is sure to show visible results if done in the right way. However, it can be a little risqué as it has led to major skin transformations in many people, both good and bad. After-care is most important when it comes to skin treatment, especially micro-needling. You know it is working when marks will appear less noticeable, wrinkles will be finer, and your skin’s quality will be overall healthier. However, you still need to be gentle on your skin after micro needling.
