How does microneedling work?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin treatment that offers rejuvenation and involves the use of tiny needles to create microscopic wounds in the skin. This triggers the body’s own healing response, which results in the production of new collagen and elastin. The new collagen and elastin help to improve the look of imperfections on the skin, including fine lines, wrinkles, and scars.

What are the benefits of the microneedling treatment?

Some of the benefits of microneedling include:

  • Reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improvement in the appearance of scars, including acne scars
  • Increased collagen and elastin production
  • Reduction in pore size
  • Even skin tone and texture
  • Radiant, youthful appearance

What is the treatment process like?

The treatment process usually takes around 30 minutes to complete. The dermatologist will first clean your skin and then apply a numbing cream. Next, they will use the microneedling device to create tiny wounds in the skin. Finally, they will apply a topical ointment or serum to help promote healing.

Who can benefit from microneedling?

Microneedling can be used to treat all skin types and is a popular treatment for aging skin. It is also a safe and effective treatment for acne scars.

What are the potential side effects of microneedling?

The most common side effect of microneedling is temporary redness and swelling of the skin. Rarely, more serious side effects can occur, such as infection or scarring.
