Can Micro-Needling Help You Look Well-Rested?
If you want to take action against the wrinkles under your eyes, your dermatologist may recommend micro-needling for skin rejuvenation. “Microneedling can help to refresh your skin, which in turn helps to make fine lines and wrinkles smooth and become less visible,” says Dr. Miriam Hanson, cosmetic dermatologist at Sanova Dermatology in Austin, Texas. By having this procedure, you are able to achieve a more youthful appearance. As with all cosmetic procedures, it is best to understand how micro-needling works and the benefits it can offer your skin.
What is Micro-needling?
Micro-needling is a process during which fine needles perforate the skin, creating a controlled skin injury to the area. “These micro-perforations stimulate the body to naturally create collagen in the skin, and combat wrinkles,” explains Dr. Hanson. It does this just as it would to heal a wound, using these natural substances to fill the space.
This, in turn, means that the procedure is entirely free of chemicals, as it merely triggers a reaction within your skin. After your body produces the new collagen and elastin, your skin will appear fuller and refreshed.
Micro-needling should be done more than once to in area to receive full benefits and, as a minimally invasive procedure, requires little downtime. If you are unhappy with your under eye wrinkles, this can be an especially great option.
Furthermore, micro-needling is great for other types of skin problems in addition to eye wrinkles. For example, it has also been proven to be successful at treat acne scars, pigmentation correction, and to assist fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment can be performed safely and effectively on a variety of skin tones and textures.
