Microneedling​

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a cosmetic procedure that involves using a device with tiny, fine needles to create controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing response, leading to the production of new collagen and elastin fibers.

The microneedling process typically involves the following steps:

Preparation

Preparation

The skin is thoroughly cleansed and a numbing cream may be applied to minimize any discomfort during the procedure.

Post-treatment care​

Microneedling

A handheld device, such as a derma roller or a pen-like device, is gently rolled or pressed onto the skin. The device contains multiple tiny needles that penetrate the skin to a specific depth, depending on the desired treatment area and skin concerns.

Collagen stimulation

Collagen stimulation

The micro-injuries created by the needles trigger the body's wound healing response. This leads to the production of new collagen and elastin, which help to improve the skin's texture, firmness, and overall appearance.

Application of serums or topicals

After microneedling, topical serums or growth factors may be applied to the skin. The microchannels created by the needles allow for better absorption of these products, enhancing their effectiveness.

Microneedling can address various skin concerns, including:

Fine lines and Wrinkles

Fine lines and wrinkles

The stimulation of collagen and elastin production can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in smoother and more youthful-looking skin.

Scarring

Scarring

Microneedling can improve the appearance of acne scars, surgical scars, and other types of scars by promoting collagen remodeling and skin regeneration.

Uneven skin tone and texture

Uneven skin tone and texture

The procedure can help even out skin tone and texture by promoting the growth of new, healthier skin cells and reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, roughness, and enlarged pores.

Stretch marks

Stretch marks

Microneedling can be used to minimize the appearance of stretch marks by stimulating collagen production and improving the texture and color of the affected skin.

Microneedling is generally considered safe when performed by a trained professional. However, it may not be suitable for individuals with certain skin conditions, such as active acne, eczema, or rosacea. It is important to consult with a dermatologist or skincare professional to determine if microneedling is appropriate for individual needs and to ensure proper technique and aftercare.
