Microneedling under the eyes
Dark circles and puffy eyes are very common problems which most of the people face sometime or the other in their lives. In case you too suffer from undereye issues, you can go for microneedling under the eyes to solve them.
What does microneedling under the eyes involve?
Micro needling is a process in which percutaneous collagen induction is carried out with the help of miniscule needles which vertically penetrate the skin surface under the eyes. The small punctures are a form of controlled injury which stimulate the body to start its natural repairing process. New skin cells are generated which remove the dullness and darkness under the eyes. Micro needling under the eyes takes 4 to 6 sessions according to the requirement of the patient. These sessions can be done over a period of 3 to 6 months. Micro needling can be done at home using a dermaroller. However, it is safer to go to a medical practitioner for this treatment to avoid damage.
Is Microneedling under the eyes safe?
This is a question which comes to the mind whenever skin treatment is discussed. In this case, the concern is greater because it involves the sensitive eye area. However, micro needling has been proven to be safe as well as effective. The reason is that the small punctures created by the needles hardly take a day or two to get repaired and the redness also disappears within 24 hours.
Another factor is that micro needling is a mechanical procedure which does not make use of any chemicals. This makes it much safer than surgical treatments. The process can be stopped any time in case the patient feels any discomfort. This is a relatively less painful process which most patients are able to tolerate.
What are the results?
You can start seeing changes just after the first session. This is so because the skin is already stimulated enough to start its new collagen formation process which takes place over a period of 10 to 14 days.
As old skin cells peel off and new skin cells take their place, the skin under the eye starts looking healthier and becomes firm. Eye bags gradually disappear within 45 days and dark circles as well as wrinkles get reduced. After the completion of all the sessions, the undereye area becomes free of all problems. Micro needling under the eye can be done on all skin types and the great results last for a long time.
