What is Microneedling?

Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that uses fine needles to puncture the skin at various depths. The controlled injuries prompt the body to heal itself by producing new collagen and elastin, leading to an improved texture and firmness, as well as a reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.

What Are the Benefits of Microneedling?

Microneedling offers many benefits, including: 

Skin Rejuvenation

By promoting collagen and elastin production, microneedling can help your skin look more youthful and vibrant.

Reducing Fine Lines and Wrinkles

The increase in collagen and elastin can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving your skin a smoother texture.

Scar Reduction

Microneedling can break up scar tissue, reducing the appearance of acne scars and other types of scarring. Microneedling works very well on chickenpox scars.

Improved Skin Texture

This procedure can help to minimize pores and improve the overall texture of your skin.

Enhanced Product Absorption

The tiny channels created by microneedling enhance the absorption of skincare products, making them more effective.

Treats Hyperpigmentation

Microneedling can help even out skin tone by shedding the top layer of the skin and promoting new skin growth.

Stretch Marks

While more research is needed, some studies suggest microneedling may reduce the appearance of stretch marks.

Minimally Invasive

Unlike some cosmetic procedures, microneedling is minimally invasive with less downtime.

Recovery and What to Expect?

After a microneedling procedure, your skin may appear red and feel sensitive, like a mild sunburn. This is normal and usually subsides within a few days. It is advised to avoid direct sun exposure and any harsh skin products during this time. Most people can return to their regular activities immediately following the procedure.

When Will I See the Results?

Results vary from person to person, but visible improvement can be seen after the first treatment. However, for more significant or lasting results, a series of treatments may be required. Your skin will continue to produce new collagen and elastin in the weeks following the procedure, leading to ongoing improvement in your skin's appearance.
