What is Microneedling? Benefits of Microneedling...

Microneedling is a dermaroller procedure that uses small needles to prick the skin. The purpose of treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin. Microneedling is mostly used on the face and may treat various scars, wrinkles, and large pores.

What is Microneedling?


Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that’s used to treat skin concerns via collagen production. Also known as collagen induction therapy, this treatment may help those looking to reduce the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks.


It’s also used in certain anti-aging procedures, such as eyelid surgery and sun spots. Microneedling isn’t effective for hair loss, despite the possible role of collagen in hair growth.



Microneedling works by encouraging your skin to make more collagen. The idea is that pinpricks from the procedure cause slight injury to the skin and that the skin responds by making new collagen-rich tissue.


This new skin tissue is, in turn, more even in tone and texture. It’s normal for the skin to lose collagen via age or injury. By encouraging the skin to make new tissue, there may be more collagen to help make the skin firmer, too.


Targeted areas for Microneedling. It is most often used on your face to target:
  • Acne Scars

  • Age Spots (also called “Sun Spots”)

  • Fine Lines & Wrinkles

  • Large Pores

  • Other types of Scars / Stretch Marks

  • Reduced skin elasticity

  • Uneven Skin Tone

Safety:
  • Microneedling is minimally invasive, requiring no downtime.

  • It’s considered safe for most people who are in overall good health.

  • The procedure isn’t safe for people who use certain acne medications or for women who are pregnant.

  • You’ll experience minor redness and irritation for a few days after the procedure.



Convenience:
  • Total prep and procedure time is about two hours.

  • You may need at least four procedures or more for the best results.


Efficacy:
  • It’s considered effective in treating minor scarring related to acne, wounds, and aging. You’ll likely notice brighter, firmer skin, too.

  • Ideal results are achieved after multiple sessions.

  • Microneedling is far more effective than at-home rollers.
