If you are looking to rejuvenate your skin and help it look fresher, there are a few different treatments you could consider. One of the latest ones you may heard about is called skin needling. This treatment is both safe and effective as a means to achieve beautiful looking skin. It sees a needled roller applied to your skin which then helps to stimulate collagen production. The mere mention of needles though can often put people off this wonderful treatment and mean they miss out on the benefits it can deliver. If you are a little unsure, here are three of the most common misconceptions around skin needling to help reassure you.
It is painful
This is perhaps the biggest thing for most people to get past. After all, most of us associate needles with hospitals or being ill. When it comes to needling though, it is important to realise that there is no pain involved at all. You may feel minor discomfort at times but this is nothing to be afraid of and certainly will not hurt. Most people undergo this procedure without feeling any undue sensations at all.
It can damage your skin permanently
This is another common misconception that is just not true. In fact, skin needling can help to reduce the presence of skin damage such as scarring over time. The risks involved with this treatment are low due to it not damaging the top layer of healthy skin. The needles instead work deeper down to trigger your bodies natural healing process. Although temporary redness or swelling may occur, this will soon disappear.
It does not give long lasting results
This again is not true at all. Although it will depend on the individual, the extra collagen your body will produce through needling can last for a long time. Once produced, this collagen will refresh your skin naturally and generate new cells to rejuvenate your skin by itself. You may need a few treatments to really see the full effect but skin needling will give long term results in most cases.
