What are the benefits of microneedling?
If you are looking for Microneedling near Mississauga, then you should head to Aafiyat. It is considered a versatile treatment because of its ability to treat various skin conditions with just a few sessions. Here are some of the skin conditions for which microneedling treatment works wonders.
Microneedling for acne works best for the depressed and not raised acne scars. When combines with vitamin C or PRP, this skin-pricking process can produce collagen that smooths out the skin’s appearance and helps fill in the gaps left by acne scars. It is important to note that if you have active acne, we would recommend letting it heal first before going for microneedling for acne.
Microneedling for stretch marks lessen the visibility of the stretch marks by producing collagen and elastin in the new skin cells which form after pricking the skin with needles and creating wounds.
If you have oily skin and notice large black spots on your cheek, chin, or forehead, there is a possibility that you have large pores. Large pores are common in oily skin as they surface due to the overproduction of sebum oil. This oil attracts bacteria and dirt. The gland responsible for producing sebum, the sebaceous gland expands in size resulting in large pores. With microneedling working on smoothening out the skin texture, it diminishes the appearance of the pores, thus making them less visible.
Wrinkles and fine lines:
If you are looking for a solution to kick back the signs of aging, then microneedling will help you. By pricking with needles and speeding up the immune system’s ability to heal wounds, microneedling smoothens the skin texture and fills in the gaps left by fine lines and wrinkles.
Uneven Skin Tone:
If you have uneven skin tone due to sun damage or have been long struggling with it due to other factors such as hormonal changes, acne scars, or skin damage, then microneedling treatment can help you get the glowing skin back. By boosting the production of collagen and elastin in the body, microneedling results in an even skin tone.
What are the side effects of microneedling treatment?
Who is a good candidate for microneedling treatment?
Microneedling near Mississauga at Aafiyat is a relatively safe procedure that anyone can undergo. But if you have active acne, infections, or face issues with wound healing we would recommend you wait until your skin has healed and then go for the treatment.
While there are little to no complications associated with micro-needling, if you are pregnant we would advise against going for it. The potential side effects of micro-needling include skin infections, allergic reactions, and cold sores which could affect the health of your baby.
How long is the recovery period for microneedling treatment?
What are some aftercare tips for micro-needling treatment?
While the skin experts at Aaafiyat will provide you with a detailed routine of how to take care of your skin after micro-needling, here are some of the things that you need to keep in mind:
Avoid going outside in the sun for at least 2 weeks because your skin after micro-needling for acne is more prone to sun damage. If this seems impossible, we suggest applying a generous amount of sunscreen on the treated area. Make sure you reapply sunscreen after every 3 hours.
Avoid touching your face and even if you do, make sure you wash your hands before that. We would advise against using swimming pools, saunas, or doing any intense workout for at least 72 hours after the micro-needling treatment. Make it a point to only use the anti-biotic creams prescribed by your doctor.
Avoid putting on makeup for at least 24 hours after the micro-needling for acne as this will clog the newly exposed skin and cause breakouts.
Do not use harsh chemical-based exfoliants, retinol creams, or Vitamin C for at least 48 hours after the micro-needling treatment.
