What is Microneedling?

What is Microneedling?

The treatment uses a pen-shaped electric medical device that employs about a dozen fine needles to penetrate the surface of the skin at a very high speed to rebuild elasticity and reduce the size of pores. The needles break down old scar tissue and stimulate skin cells to proliferate, resulting in the formation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers, and in the formation of new capillaries, which improve blood supply.

As the fine needles puncture the skin, they create channels or micro-wounds that trigger the body to fill them with new collagen and elastin, which leads to improved skin texture, firmness and hydration.

Benefits of Microneedling

Reduced risk of hyperpigmentation and scarring, making it safe on dark skin

Suitable for thin and sensitive skin

Can be done at an office/clinic and doesn’t require too much special training or costly tools

Patients tolerate and approve of the treatment

It is cost-effective, and can be used to treat areas that other technologies, such as peels and laser, cannot treat.

Microneedling leaves the epidermis intact and doesn’t damage it, making it a safe procedure to repeat.

Unlike other skin resurfacing treatments, this procedure does not produce a line of demarcation between treated and untreated skin. Because of this, treatment can be applied to specific scar areas without the use of “blending” or “feathering”

Recovery time is minimal, allowing you to resume normal activities within a few days, depending on how deep the needles penetrate the skin. This is different from treatments such as laser resurfacing and dermabrasion, which require downtime from normal activities

Microneedling Procedure

The procedure is well tolerated. Depending on the area being treated and the problem being targeted, treatment takes between a few minutes to an hour to complete.

Patients should take care not to use any lotion, makeup, or topical creams on the area to be treated.

Before the micro-needling begins, a medical professional applies a numbing cream or local anesthetic to the area of concern.

A skin-needling device is used to puncture the skin in a specific pattern and is used several times to maximize results.

Each skin puncture creates a tiny wound, which allows for skin cells to regenerate.

The procedure takes between five and sixty minutes to complete.

It is recommended that six weeks pass between one treatment and the next to allow for new collagen to form completely.
