Get flawless skin in time for Christmas with Medical Micro-Needling

Having damaged skin – which can be caused by anything from acne to lifestyle choices – can really take its toll on your self-esteem and leave many people looking for a solution. Medical micro-needling aims to reverse any issues your skin might have and make it more even, youthful and firm.

Medical micro-needling is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that aims to vastly improve the look of scarring, which can be left after the skin conditions such as acne. It is one of the best ways to clear up the skin without surgical intervention. Medical Micro-needling treatment involves injecting tiny needles into the facial tissue in order to puncture the skin, which promotes faster healing times and the production of collagen; this helps reduce the visibility of scars.

Medical micro-needling treatment is a relatively quick treatment that requires little recovery time and can produce rapid results. Although it is strongly suggested that patients attend between 4 and 6 sessions of medical micro-needling for optimum results, in some cases patients have reported results from the first session. This is not something that happens in most cases, but a visible improvement should be seen relatively quickly for almost all patients. During a course of medical micro-needling, each session should be at least four weeks apart.

Of course, medical micro-needling treatment comes with minor potential risks involved. The main risk involved with medical micro-needling treatment is infection, but the chance of this happening is minimized dramatically if your treatment is performed by a fully qualified cosmetic professional. Patients may also experience some bruising, swelling and bleeding as a result of their treatment, but it should begin to subside within 1-2 days.

Medical micro-needling can be incredibly beneficial to the right patient, but what does a cosmetic expert say about the treatment? Dr. Thevendra, a cosmetic doctor at Apsaras Practice, told us not only what he thinks about medical micro-needling, but why it is the perfect time of year to begin the procedure.

Dr Thevendra specialises in non-surgical cosmetic treatments, and has a specific interest in medical micro-needling, particularly in combination with other non-surgical cosmetic treatments. He had the following to say about the treatment. “Medical micro-needling is a great treatment that allows patients to address their problem skin head on. It is the perfect cosmetic treatment for the festive season, because, if they start now, the patient will be able to see results by Christmas, and be well on their way to beautiful skin by 2015! All cosmetic treatments can have a profound impact on patients’ confidence, but medical micro-needling in particular is great at this because many of the patients who undergo the treatment have struggled with their skin for years.”
