Microneedling for acne scars is a roller with multiple small needles that roll through the skin and penetrate various substances in the deepest layers, opening micro-channels. Its mechanism of action is the temporary mechanical alteration of the skin, the medical damage controlled, but without damaging the healthy epidermis (something that happens with other methods such as ablative lasers or deep peeling); in turn, the degree of penetration of these substances immediately and deeply into the dermis is key.
With the micro needling therapy, multiple micro-perforation is generated that facilitates the penetration of hyaluronic acid, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), growth factors or polynucleotides, which produces a tremendous dermal stimulation that activates the mechanisms of tissue repair. There are even studies that point out that this penetration is multiplied by a thousand when using rollers with microneedles.
What are the uses of micro needling?
In general, the microneedle is used to treat rouges, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, sagging skin, striae, and photoaging. In fact, some microneedling professionals have shown that this treatment is more efficient to fight against the signs of ageing than others such as dermabrasion, laser or chemical peeling. For PRP treatment for face, the results are as satisfactory as those obtained with the CO2 laser or the IPL, since, like these, it stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. Both the protein molecule, collagen and elastin are critical for the treatment of damaged skin tissue, whether due to scars or blemishes. It is also the best way to reduce skin wrinkles and, therefore, delay ageing.
In addition to being an active anti-ageing treatment, as well as correcting and reducing scars and skin blemishes, micro needling has other uses. One of them is the hair revitalization, being an effective method also to treat alopecia. The small perforations of your needles help substances such as topical growth factors or Rogaine, for example, to penetrate better into the scalp. In this way, hair growth is stimulated.
