As you age, your skin loses its natural collagen. This condition loosens up the skin cells,thus resulting in thinning of the skin. Microneedling or collagen induction therapy is a pain-free, non-invasive process that can help in collagen production in your skin by making punctures on your skin with the help of microneedles. However, you will not feel any pain during the process. If you wish to opt for microneedling, London offers you several options. However, you need to know a few important points before you choose microneedling.
The working Method
The microneedling London procedure directs your skin to restart the collagen making process. It forms punctures or pricks on your skin.The response of the skin to these pricks isby giving rise to new collagen-rich tissue. With age, the skin halts the process of new collagen tissue generation, unless it encounters any micro-injuries. With these microneedles, the collagen-producing property is renewed. With the help of the new collagen thus formed, the cells tighten up and achieve a glow.
Remember that during microneedling, you expose your interiors to the outside pathogens. Therefore, prior to the start of the process, you should clean your skin with alcohol. Local anesthetic, along with a number of pain-relieving creams, is then applied to reduce any pain. The procedure then utilizes stimulants for collagen production like Vitamin A, Vitamin C, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. The microneedle is injected with the help of a dermaroller or a derma stamp. The speed of rolling or the size of the needle can be adjusted. After the treatment, sunblock and hyaluronic acid applications are performed on the skin.
Time of the process
The general duration for a microneedling process is 45 minutes, starting from the application of alcohol and the numbing creams.
Most people do not feel anything during the entire process of microneedling. For all those patients who have a sensitivity to pricks, the experienced personnel applies numbing creams to ease out the pain.
Besides the initial alcohol rubbing and numbing cream application, the microneedling process is generally conducted with a dermapen, dermastamp, or a dermaroller. If you wish to use a dermaroller, you can perform microneedling at home as well.
