Skin Needling – The Best Way to Get Rid of Congestion

Posted on December 4, 2020 By Deepika Samant

With the environmental pollutants, sweat, and sebum, your skin pores do not have it easy. The clogged pores cause blackheads, acne and skin breakouts. But regular blockage of pores can be the host for a congested skin.  To combat skin congestion, you might follow a certain skincare regimen including exfoliators and moisturizers. But have you considered a professional congested skin treatment like skin needling yet?

What is Skin Congestion?

Skin congestion is the buildup of dead skin cells, impurities, sweat and sebum in the pores. As this debris accumulates on your skin pores, it gets trapped under the skin’s surface causing blackheads, dull appearance and uneven skin texture.

What contributes to Skin Congestion?

Though a number of factors may be responsible for micro congestion skin, one of the major contributing factors is a thick and heavy moisturizer or a facial oil. You could be using it for a long time which has probably ended up sitting onto the skin and blocking the pores. 

Another possible reason could be a thick and heavy foundation with high wax content in it. A foundation with a very high coverage generally leads to skin congestion. 

Consider removing these from your daily routine and it will be quite easy to maintain healthier and more glowing skin.  

How to fight congestion?


A good cleanser would be a good way to start. You do not want a cleanser that scratches your skin as it leads to thickening of the top layer of your skin, thereby enlarging your pores which makes it even more difficult to remove the congestion. 

Pro-tip: Always make sure that your cleanser isn’t stringent to avoid removing your natural oils. Gauze is a fantastic way to pull out the congestion without scratching and irritating your skin. 

Professional laser skin care treatments

Another really fast and effective way to get rid of congestion is to find a Laser and Skin Clinic that performs Skin Needling preferably with a device like a pen along with a needle that has perfect precision to pierce the skin. 

With such a procedure, any blockages sitting in the skin’s pores are pushed up and out. Thus, the pores get strengthened, making it difficult to become congested. 

Your skin starts creating small invisible micro-perforations in the deeper layers of the dermis and naturally starts regenerating new cells. It then repairs itself, giving you a more rejuvenated and healthier appearance. 

How does Skin Needling treatment benefit you? 

A perfect alternative to cosmetic treatments, skin needling prevents your risk of burns or scars while also providing you several other benefits: 

  1. Regenerates skin cells

Skin or face needling focuses on inducing collagen in the skin. Wherever the needle goes, more collagen and elastin are produced, which renew your skin cells, making the skin look younger. It’s a skin tightening technique that is preferred for various skin conditions such as acne scarring, wrinkles, stretch marks, enlarged pores and blackheads.

  1. Improves skin texture 

The cosmetic skin needling treatment is a perfect treatment to instigate healing of the skin. The skin starts responding to the treatment very quickly and the micro-wounds begin healing thereafter. As a result, you get an improved skin texture that feels softer and brighter. 

  1. Reduces acne

Another major benefit for which skin needling treatments are preferred in Sydney is acne reduction or blackhead removal. The needle used in the procedure pierces the skin’s outermost layer and works to eliminate the very source of your blackheads. Skin Needling helps you shrink enlarged pores as it creates collagen in and around your pores. 

Adding skin needling to your self-care routine will help you prevent early signs of aging and achieve youthful-looking skin. Given that skin needling treatment guarantees minimal downtime and discomfort, you must give it a try.
