Are microneedling patches a good thing? Let us find out.
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that uses small, sterilized needles to stimulate collagen production. It is commonly used on the face and can reduce the appearance of acne. It can also be effective in reducing scars and stretch marks and revitalizing mature skin. After a few sessions, you will notice that your skin is brighter and firmer. You can also use the dermo rollers at home, but the results may not be as noticeable.
What are the benefits of microneedling in general?
Since it appeared in the beauty community, the list of benefits has been growing. As we said before, it rejuvenates and plumps the skin with minimal discomfort and very little downtime, and can be naturally customized to the person’s skin and needs.
Some of the benefits:
- reduce the appearance of scars, regardless of their type,
- reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles,
- reduction of enlarged pores,
- reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation or dark spots,
- smooth uneven skin tone,
- improve the elasticity of the skin
- reduces visible stretch marks,
- can support hair growth.
But what about microneedling patches?
Microneedling patches use self-dissolving micro-cones of pure skin care to enhance the penetration of plumping, moisturizing hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is the game changer when it comes to skincare. Its effectiveness lies in instantly moisturizing and smoothing dry areas of the skin. Our skin is usually dried out around the eyes.
They are available for several areas of the face, the forehead, the eye area (crown foot and under the eye), and the nasolabial region. The patches are designed to target pigmentation, lip plumping, blemishes, and wrinkles. The patches for the eye area contain a potent blend of active ingredients – marine extract to ward off free radicals, hyaluronic acid to hydrate, and adenosine to smooth fine lines.
