What You Need to Know about Microneedling
Microneedling or skin needling is a relatively new procedure in the United States, but it is already considered as a standard procedure for skin rejuvenation in Europe for several decades. And with the development of Bella SkinPen Microneedling, the procedure has become as effective as laser treatment.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a type of minimally invasive treatment that rejuvenates the skin. It is recommended for both men and women who want to have smooth skin and improve their complexion without having to suffer from a long recovery period.
The procedure will only take 30 minutes or less. It depends on the areas to be treated. Aside from needling the face, doctors also recommended micro needling stretch marks, as well as needling acne scars.
Microneedling How Often?
The skin of each individual differs from one another. People with mild wrinkles can see improvements after one session. However, patients suffering from advanced skin conditions may require more sessions. Microneedling for scars often takes more than a single session in order to get rid of the imperfections of the skin.
Does Microneedling Work?
The procedure has been proven to be effective and safe, which is why a lot of celebrities have used microneedling treatments to keep their skin looking young and radiant. Topical solutions can only treat the skin’s uppermost layer. There are only a few products that can reach the dermis. Microneedling allows the solution to reach the dermis by creating tiny channels in the skin. That way the solution will work more effectively and lead to better results.

Benefits of Microneedling
One of the benefits of the microneedling procedure is that it takes only a short time to perform and of course the size of area treated. Downtime is minimal depending on the depth treatment. After needling skin, patients can go back to their daily routine. That means there’s no need to skip work after getting microneedling treatments. There are some patients that complain about the redness of their skin after the treatment. This is a normal side effect and will fade away after a couple of days.
The Bella Skinpen microneedle is used for acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, stretch markets, sagging skin, and sun damage. It can also be used to remove tattoos. After the microneedling treatment, the production of collagen is stimulated and assists in the renewal of the skin. After micro needling, patients will have a more youthful look.
What to Do After Microneedling Treatment?
After a microneedle session, it is important to stay away from the sun. And make sure that you use a high SPF sunblock when you go outdoors. The skin will be more sensitive to UV rays after the treatment.
In order to preserve the effects of the micro needling treatment, Dr. Sheffield will suggest a skin care regimen to help maintain one’s youthful appearance much longer. It is important to stay in touch with the doctor and staff after the procedure.
