5 microneedling myths you must know

Microneedling is getting quite popular these days and no doubt, this is for a good reason. Microneedling stimulates the natural growth of collagen and this gives you better skin at every level. Whether you visit a professional or do it yourself at home, there still remains enough confusion regarding the procedure. Here are the top 5 myths you must be aware of.

Myth 1 – the microneedling device your doctor uses is the same you use at home.

This is not true. Your doctor will always use a stronger medical version of the microneedling device, this is not safe grade and acceptable for use at home. You can purchase a microneedling roller for use at home and at a doctor’s office, you can avail the benefits of radiofrequency and state of the art microneedling pens.

Myth 2 – microneedling is painful.

Your microneedling procedure may cause some discomfort but it is not unbearable. Depending on the depth of your particular procedure, it is usually performed under topical anesthesia.

Myth3 – you will be left with holes after the procedure.

Microneedling creates microscopic holes on your skin. This is controlled injury which stimulates collagen production; however, these holes are microscopic and cannot be seen with naked eye. You might see a pinkish flush on your skin but this will resolve on its own in some time. The procedure may also cause some bleeding but this is normal too. You can use makeup for the first few days to hide these.

Myth 4 – you cannot use microneedling around the eyes or lips.

Skin care and science has reached new advancements and it makes microneedling absolutely safe for use anywhere on your skin. The appropriate device can be used in the areas around your lips and eyes as well. Special tools like Environ rollers are manufactured for use on the upper lids, around your nose and upper lips as well as on the sides of the nose.

Myth 5 – microneedling is a mere anti-aging tool.

Microneedling is undoubtedly as an anti-aging procedure but it also gives you smooth skin and elimination of acne scars. The stimulation of collagen after the use of microneedling device helps with scars too. This also makes it easy for topical ointments and creams to go deeper in order to offer you amazing results.
