Serious acne issues are no fun, whether you’re a teenager or otherwise. However, there’s an effective treatment which can revitalise damaged complexions without chemicals: Microneedling.
This process involves the deployment of hundreds of minuscule titanium needles which are rolled over the skin with a special applicator called a Dermaroller, which does three things: stimulate the surface area, promote an increase in natural collagen and elastin production, and improve circulation – which kickstarts the natural repair and regeneration of the treated area deep within the skin layers.
The simple solution for acne issues
The procedure is walk-in-walk-out: a topical anaesthetic is applied to the treated area 30 minutes in advance, and then the Dermaroller is pressed and moved across the treatment area. Each ‘roll’ creates extremely tiny punctures across the skin, which initiates the healing process that will regenerate the area.
Remember, the Dermaroller treatment introduces no chemicals to the body – it merely activates and maximises a natural healing process. Similarly, post-treatment symptoms are nothing bar a little skin redness, which fades after a couple of days at most. What more, you skin improvements will continue to develop for up six months afterwards, making it a very effective treatment.
Minimal pain, maximum gain
Obviously, there is an element of mild discomfort during the treatment, depending on what part of the body is being treated – and while clients usually experience dryness and flakiness in the treated area a couple of days after the treatment, that’s a natural consequence of the increased production of skin cells – and by the end of the week, there is a visibly smoother and healthier appearance.
