3 Common Misconceptions about Skin Needling

By May 20, 2019 No Comments

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 have heard about is called skin needling, also known as microneedling.

Microneedling treatment is both safe and effective as a means to achieve beautiful looking skin. Needle facial treatment sees a needled roller (dermaroller) applied to your skin which then helps to stimulate collagen production. The mere mention of face needling can often put people off this wonderful treatment, meaning they miss out on its wonderful benefits. If you are a little unsure of a microneedling facial, here are three of the most common misconceptions around skin needling to help reassure you.

Skin Microneedling 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.

Dermarollers Can Damage Your Skin Permanently

This is another common misconception that is just not true. In fact, face needling can help to reduce the presence of skin damage such as scarring over time. The risks involved with microneedling for acne scars and on other areas of the body are low due to the needles not damaging the top layer of healthy skin. Instead, the needles work deeper in the skin to trigger your body’s natural healing process. Although temporary redness or swelling may occur immediately after a microneedling facial, this will soon disappear.

Face Needling 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 microneedling treatments to really see the full effect but skin needling will give long term results in most cases.
