Micro-Needling vs Dermaplaning

Micro-needling and dermaplaning are two of the many techniques available for reducing fine lines, wrinkles and other skin imperfections. But which is the better choice for you?

In this article, we’ll explore the differences between these two treatments so you can choose the best one for your needs.

What is Micro-Needling and How Does It Work?

Skin needling, micro-needling, microneedling and cit are different names for the same service, a service that is exactly what it sounds like. Small needles are used to make minor pricks into the Dermis layer of your skin. Your skin then reacts as though it were injured and it starts to stimulate the growth of new collagen and elastin as part of your body’s natural healing process.

The end result?

Your skin will look smoother and fuller. It will also feel more supple and you may also notice an improvement in the texture and firmness of your skin too.

 What is Dermaplaning and How Does It Work?

Unlike micro-needling, dermaplaning works by scraping away the top layer of skin. It’s a non-invasive procedure that removes the surface layer of dead skin cells as well as any small hairs around the face and neck.

After a dermaplaning treatment, you might notice your skin is a little pink for a few hours. This is totally normal and once the pinkness goes away, you’ll be left with a glowing layer of new skin! However, when it comes to lasting results micro needling supersedes dermaplaning. Micro needling results last 12-24 months whereas dermaplaning is up to 3 weeks.

Micro-Needling vs Dermaplaning: Which Is Best for Scar Tissue?

If you have acne scarring, rough skin or scars of other types, micro-needling may be the better treatment for your skin.

It’s kind of like fighting fire with fire.

The small needles that are inserted into the skin will break up old scar tissue and allow your body to replace it with new, soft and smooth skin.

Micro-needling essentially sparks a healing response in your body and floods your skin with collagen – the secret ingredient to glowing skin that lasts 1-2 years!



Micro-Needling vs Dermaplaning Tweed Heads: Which Is Best for Reducing Wrinkles?

As we get older, our skin’s natural exfoliation slows down. Both micro-needling and dermaplaning are suitable options to reduce the signs of aging. However, when it comes to choosing which one delivers the best results. Let’s read on to see why skin needling is the clear winner.

Dermaplaning works by replacing the exfoliation process and removing the top layer of dead skin. This action stimulates epidermal growth and blood flow. Results last up to 3 weeks.

On the other hand micro-needling is an effective, longer lasting option for reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin with results lasting 12-24 months.

Micro-needling is a gentle anti-aging treatment that stimulates your body’s natural healing mechanism, therefore the effects last much longer. This means less time out of your day visiting skin clinics and more money in your back pocket.

Micro-Needling vs Dermaplaning: Which Is Best for Removing Peach Fuzz?

If you have many fine hairs around your face and neck, these can be removed as part of a dermaplaning session, otherwise known as peach fuzz.

If you’re worried these hairs will grow back thicker, let’s put your mind at ease right now. The hairs will only grow back at the same thickness as they currently are.

That’s because the type of hair on your face is vellus hair. It’s very thin and grows back at the same consistency and thickness every time.

If you are looking to improve your skin’s appearance in a lasting way and searching for the best treatment for your needs, it’s best to consult with an expert so you get the best results for your skin!
