Ayurvedic Microneedling: Ancient Wisdom and Modern Skincare
While Ayurveda uses natural remedies, dietary guidelines, and lifestyle practices to maintain well-being and treating many conditions, Microneedling Therapy, also called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), and Percutaneous (through the skin) Collagen Induction (PCI), is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves the use of fine needles to create micro-injuries in the skin.
These controlled injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing processes, including collagen production, which leads to improved skin texture, tone, and elasticity.
Microneedling is commonly used to treat a range of skin concerns, including wrinkles, scars, and pigmentation issues.
Thus, in recent years, there has been an increasing interest in integrating Ayurvedic principles with modern cosmetic procedures, such as microneedling.
The fusion of Ayurveda with microneedling involves incorporating Ayurvedic principles and natural ingredients into the microneedling process to enhance its effectiveness and promote holistic well-being. Some key points about this regard involve:
Ayurvedic herbs and botanicals like neem, turmeric, aloe Vera, and san
alwood have been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine for their healing properties. These ingredients can be incorporated into microneedling treatments to provide added benefits, such as anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.
Furthermore, Ayurveda classifies individuals into different dosha types (Vata, Pitta, Kapha), and treatments are tailored to balance the specific dosha. Integrating dosha-specific herbs and oils in microneedling can help address skin issues associated with dosha imbalances.
Hence, Ayurvedic principles allow for a highly personalized approach to microneedling treatments. A thorough assessment of an individual’s constitution and skin concerns can guide the choice of herbs, oils, and techniques which also emphasizes the interconnectedness of the mind and body.
Microneedling sessions can be designed to create a relaxing and mindful experience, reducing stress and promoting overall well-being.
Finally, Ayurveda also establishes a connection between Dietary Guidelines and Lifestyle Practices: Ayurveda places great importance on diet for maintaining health.
Recommendations for specific dietary changes or supplements can complement the microneedling process to support skin healing and rejuvenation integrating Ayurvedic lifestyle practices, including yoga and meditation in order to promote relaxation and overall wellness.
At Ayurbeauty Wellness Center, Microneedling is used in combination with Ayurvedic & organic glycerides, Ayurvedic aloe gels with gold and silver leaves and customized Ayurvedic Serums to hydrate, treat and heal the skin.
The micro-channels created by the needles allow for deeper penetrations of topical serums for more effective results. This procedure can increase the skins ability to utilize the nutrients by up to 3,000 %.
The combination of Ayurveda and microneedling aims to offer a holistic approach to skin rejuvenation, taking into account not only the physical aspects of the skin but also the individual’s overall health and well-being.
This integration can provide a unique and personalized approach to skincare that resonates with those seeking a more holistic path to beauty and wellness.
