No one can question the fact that people make judgments about us based on the way that we look. If we have an attractive face with smooth skin, people are going to make positive judgments about us. On the other hand, if our face is full of blemishes and has an uneven color, it is likely that people will make less than positive judgments about who and what we are.
There are a lot of products on the market that have been designed to help people improve their appearance. There are also surgical procedures that can drastically change or improve the way a person looks. One product that has garnered a lot of attention in recent years is microneedling.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a catchall term that is used to describe the different tools and devices that are used to create tiny channels in your skin with the goal of encouraging your skin to create collagen and heal itself.
There are a lot of different microneedling devices that are on the market today. As the device comes in contact with your skin, small channels are made in your skin. The areas heal very quickly. As they heal, it requires your body to produce collagen. Studies have shown that microneedling is an effective way to reduce the appearance of acne scars as well as other minor scars on your face.
Is Microneedling Better Than a Chemical Peel?
There are many who strongly believe that microneedling provides better results than going in for a chemical peel. This is especially the case if you are looking at removing wrinkles. One of the arguments for microneedling is that unlike lasers and chemical peels, at our office in Boston microneedling is used and it does not remove the epidermis. Yet, it promotes collagen growth when your body tries to heal the small channels that are made in your skin by the device.
Chemical peels and laser resurfacing are beneficial only because they remove the external layer of the skin and expose the smoother layers of skin underneath. A chemical peel is a good way to address sun damage. That being said, you have to realize that the only way that you’re going to be able to improve wrinkles and improve the appearance of your skin is to force your skin to produce more collagen.
