Microneedling for the treatment of blemishes from hyperpigmentation
If you are not satisfied with the appearance of your face due to hyperpigmentation, you are not alone. Aging can really make a dent in your skin. Once you have reached the age of forty, you are probably noticing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, poor skin texture and hyperpigmentation or age spots. These unwanted changes in the skin often leave people looking older than they feel. This can even lead to other problems such as anxiety, depression and difficulties in relationships or work.
It is a fact of life that we are all judged on the basis of our appearance. It can be considered that a person who seems older lacks sufficient energy to justify a particular job. Seeming greater can damage your self-esteem and other aspects of your life. Fortunately, there is a wide range of options available to help improve the appearance of your skin. One of those options is microneedling.
What is Microneedling?
Although many older people would like to do something about their hyperpigmentation, they may not want to follow the path of cosmetic surgery. Although cosmetic surgery offers dramatic results, some people consider it too risky and expensive. Surgery also tends to require significant downtime, and some people see the results as unnatural.
Microneedling offers a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation method that is relatively inexpensive and safe. As an added benefit, it requires little or no downtime. That is why many people are turning to this proven method of skin improvement.
The treatment consists in passing a device covered in small sterile needles on your skin. Each small opening, although practically invisible to the naked eye, causes your own body to deposit fresh collagen and elastin in the area. This will eventually result in a skin that will look younger and softer, showing less signs of hyperpigmentation.
In the days and weeks after the treatment session, your body will respond to the small openings that are made in your skin by turning the old skin in favor of a fresher and more youthful skin. The process is gradual, but you should begin to notice that the lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation will improve. You can also increase your results even more with multiple treatments. Just keep in mind that you should space your treatments with several weeks of separation so that the skin has time to heal properly.
