Skin Needling vs Anti-Wrinkle Injections: What’s More Effective?

Anti-wrinkle treatments are a popular option for people who want to look young. There are many options available, but the two most common types of anti-wrinkle treatment are injections and skin needling.

This article examines the differences between these two treatments, including when to use them and how they work.

What Causes Wrinkles?

Wrinkles are caused by the natural aging process, environmental factors and genetics. Skin becomes less elastic as it ages which opens the door for wrinkles to start appearing.

Wrinkles will naturally form on fine skin around the eyes, lips and forehead since these areas are in frequent use and we often don’t give these areas a break in our day to day lives!

Every frown, every smile and every facial expression you make contorts your skin in different directions. The patterns you make the most will cause the most wear on your skin and, over time, as your skin loses its

elasticity, wrinkles will begin to appear in these areas.

Each person is unique in their predisposition towards developing these kinds of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. But, there are some commonalities between all people who have them, such as loss of collagen within the dermis layer, which creates deeper grooves in your complexion when you age.

Different Approaches to Anti-Wrinkle Treatments

Different anti-wrinkle treatments are available in today’s market, and it can be confusing to know which is the best option for you.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Anti-wrinkle injections work by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles. If the muscles under the skin are relaxed, then your face makes less of the movements that lead to the creation of wrinkles.

The most common anti-wrinkle injection is Botox, which contains a toxin that blocks nerve impulses to the muscle. This prevents the muscle from contracting and causes the appearance of wrinkles to disappear.

All in all, any type of anti-wrinkle injection is an invasive procedure that doesn’t target the root cause of wrinkles. It simply attempts to prevent existing wrinkles from getting worse by restricting the movements that create them. That’s why some people can feel like their face is frozen or expressionless after such a treatment.

Skin Needling

Skin needling is an effective yet gentle, natural procedure that can be used to reduce the signs of wrinkles. It works by creating micro pricks on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural healing response. As your body’s healing response kicks into gear, your skin will produce more collagen and elastin.

Since the reduction of collagen and elasticity is what causes wrinkles in the first place, micro-needling is considered to be a treatment that tackles the cause of wrinkles as naturally as possible.

Overall, both methods work towards the goal of improving the appearance of skin texture and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Skin needling, however, has many benefits that outweigh cosmetic injections. Skin needling enhances your natural appearance with long lasting results of up to 24 months, it can also be used to treat other conditions, such as acne scars and hyperpigmentation.



Why Natural Non-Invasive Anti-Wrinkle Methods Are a Better Option

There are many differences between anti-wrinkle injections and skin needling. Skin needling is a more natural treatment, but it also has longer lasting results that continue to improve up to 24 months after each treatment.

Over the long term, the results from skin needling treatments compound as your body begins to produce more collagen on its own. It is, however, considered to be a non-invasive method as it only works on the surface layer of the skin and doesn’t create any of the problems that can occur when dealing with injectables.

Skin needling works on enhancing your natural strengths in a way that leaves others guessing why you are looker younger as the years go by. Having a new fresh face doesn’t need to look fake or cost a small fortune, improve your appearance naturally with skin needling from Doctor Amena.
