Microneedling is an effective, non-surgical skin treatment procedure that uses fine needles to create tiny punctures in the skin.
The microneedle intends to stimulate the body’s self-repair process to naturally renew the appearance of the skin and improve its texture. As the body works to heal the small abrasions caused by the needles, a variety of skin concerns is addressed as well.
Once the needles create tiny punctures on the skin, the body receives the signal that it has been injured. It will then trigger its natural self-repair process. It will start to heal the tiny perforations on the skin by synthesizing collagen and elastin. This is how healthy new tissues are produced. The entire process of healing the tiny perforations takes several hours.
Depending on the depth of reach by the microneedles, a tingling sensation may be felt during the procedure. For severe instances, numbing creams may be used to provide comfort. It’s also possible to pre-determine the length of the needle or applicator to be used. However, all this will depend on the patient’s present skin condition. For those with severe skin problems, longer lengths are required.
A common microneedling technique involves the use of a derma pen or roller, which has needles attached to a cylindrical device. Also known as the microneedle roller, it is used by rolling the device across the skin’s problem areas. The only issue is that the needle is inserted at a sloped angle, which is caused by the rolling movement. This produces unnecessary epidermal damage as the needles tug the skin tissues as they go.
LaserBody M.D. uses Rejuvapen’s state-of-art applicator that inserts every microneedle vertically, which minimizes unnecessary injuries. Since the applicator only moves in an up-and-down motion, there will be minimal downtime and a more comfortable experience for patients.
Furthermore, the Rejuvapen Microneedling System can also be used in small, tight curved areas. Do note that the dermarolling technique can’t be used on the crease of the nose, along the upper lip, or across the chin. You may even check several derma roller reviews to verify that.
