Microneedling is a 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.
Microneedling is an effective treatment for:
Microneedling is a method used to treat different skin conditions. The technique involves using multiple tiny, sterile needles to puncture the skin and cause physical trauma. This trauma prompts the derma, a deeper layer of skin, to rebuild. Microneedling increases the production of collagen and other healing factors by causing trauma to the skin. Collagen is an essential protein that helps keep the skin looking youthful, with a firm and smooth texture.
Ageing causes the decline of collagen in the skin, contributing to wrinkles and other signs of ageing. Skin can also lose collagen due to injuries, such as acne scarring, stretch marks, or other scars.
Microneedling is an excellent treatment for age spots, blackheads, hyper-pigmentation (melasma), acne spots and scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and improves the appearance of dull, “tired-looking” skin. You can treat your face, neck, décolleté’, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and neck—the areas often reveal the most tell-tale signs of ageing and sun damage.
What Microneedling can do for you:
One of the most exciting perks of microneedling is the immediate results patients experience. Patients can see a “glow” to their skin as soon as the procedure is finished, and visible changes to the skin develop over several weeks. Results continue to improve up to six months after the treatment. Some patients only require a single treatment in one visit just once a year to achieve noticeable results. However, we recommend that patients receive a series of two to three treatments spaced six to eight weeks apart for best results. It is recommended for patients with significant skincare concerns, such as deep acne scars, to receive six to eight sessions at six-week intervals.
