Dermal Fillers or Skin Needling?

When it comes to achieving smoother, younger-looking skin, there are a lot of different options available to you. But at Amena Wellness, we only offer entirely natural cosmetic skin services that can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with minimum side effects.

In this article, we’re going to explore skin needling vs facial fillers and explain why natural skin needling is a far better option if you’re looking for the best results with a minimum level of risk.

What’s the Difference Between Micro-Needling & Facial Fillers?

Dermal fillers involve small injections of gel, usually something like hyaluronic acid, under the skin. This adds volume to soft tissue but also introduces a foreign substance and injects it directly into sensitive areas of your face.

Skin needling, also known as micro-needling, is the process by which tiny needles are used to gently prick the skin. This causes the skin to produce new collagen and elastin in the same way it would if your skin was injured. This then makes your skin feel smoother, look softer, and will even improve the firmness and texture of your skin.

The biggest difference is that dermal fillers are added under the layers of your skin, whereas skin needling takes place on the surface.

Skin Needling vs Dermal Fillers: Comparing The Benefits

Dermal fillers have historically been quite popular because they offer rather immediate results, but is it good thing to be that obvious? Maybe you are looking for a more natural result.

Although the results of micro-needling or skin needling might not be quite as instantaneous as dermal fillers the end results are often much better through enhancement of your natural features and the added benefit of results lasting up to 2 years. Not only does it help your skin to appear more plump and youthful, but it also tightens and lifts your skin by using your body’s natural healing mechanisms to do so. The most loved benefit is others notice you look amazing without the artifical appearance that can easily result from dermal fillers.

Skin needling also helps to even out your skin tone, reduce the appearance of pores, minimises the appearance of scars, and even primes your skin for other topical treatments. There is also the benefit that, due to being a less invasive procedure and being entirely natural, skin needling is a much more affordable treatment than dermal fillers.

Dermal fillers might be faster, but skin needling is simply better for your skin’s overall health thanks to the focus on natural procedures that stimulate your body’s natural healing processes.

Are There Any Side Effects From Skin Needling or Facial Fillers?

Treated areas usually recover very quickly from skin needling treatments. However, there can occasionally be rare side effects. This can include a minor degree of swelling during the healing phase and a mild potential flare in acne.

While the risks of side effects for dermal fillers are higher, there are always going to be greater risks in any treatment that involves injections of any kind. The dermal injections are composed of multiple ingredients, many of which can damage the skin or even cause allergic reactions. Not to mention the risk of infection that comes with any invasive treatment.

The all-natural process of skin needling simply comes with far fewer side effects than dermal fillers, and any side effects that might occur are significantly less serious.

When it comes to caring for your skin, it’s always best to favour procedures that promote your skin’s natural processes rather than interfering with unnatural ingredients.
