Who does not want to look younger? I know many women and men pay a lot of money each year for plastic surgery to bring their youth back or try to at least. However, they go and spend a lot of money to have their face pulled so tight by a plastic surgeon that they look like they stuck their head out of car window, going 80 miles an hour. There is a procedure that may shave at least ten years off, which is called micro-needling.
What is micro-needling? Micro-needling, also called induction therapy, derma rolling, or skin needling, is a cosmetic procedure that involves repeating puncturing of the skin with tiny, sterile needles. A licensed aesthetician usually performs this procedure. When passed over the surface, the needles create micro “injuries” in the skin to trigger new collagen synthesis. Each micro “injury” creates a channel that triggers the body to produce new collagen and elastin to fill the microscopic wound. This procedure has no significant side effects, and beautiful results are noticeable in a short period.
Some results of micro-needling are reduction of wrinkles and fine lines, improvement of scars, reduces the appearance of stretch marks, and prevents signs of aging. I have experienced first-hand two out of the four benefits of this procedure. My wife’s aunt is a licensed aesthetician, and she decided to work her magic on a few fine lines I started developing. I have to say; I did not volunteer for this. However, I went along with the plan. My face was cleansed, and then the procedure started. She used the machine on my face without any local anesthesia, which did not make this pleasant. The process took at least 15 to 20 minutes. The results were not immediate, but after the third time, you can see the lines started to disappear.
My son had severe acne when he was younger, which left him with acne scars. He was subjected to the same torture, as I call it to see if micro-needling will benefit his scarring. It indeed did, and now he is walking around more confident than before with smooth skin.
Micro-needling stimulates the production of natural elastin and collagen that reduces wrinkles and fine lines. You will look younger with short recovery time, and your pockets will be much lighter as well. You will not have to spend money on botched plastic surgery that may cost you your life savings. It is also proven to diminish the look of acne scars by breaking down old tissue and triggers the production of new elastin and collagen.
Micro-needling has been around for several years; however, it is gaining more and more popularity through social media networks. The next time you decide to spend thousands of dollars on surgery to look younger, try searching for a reputable licensed aesthetician who performs micro-needling. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
