Microneedling therapy (also called skin needling) is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. The needles are used to puncture the skin to create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin. Through the process of neovascularization and neocollagenesis, there is improvement in skin texture and firmness, as well as reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks. We use this treatment for stretch marks, acne scars and wrinkles.
Microneedling is a safe, chemical-free method that triggers new collagen production. Because it can be performed on all skin colors and types, it is sometimes the preferred treatment over laser. The procedure is well tolerated by patients with minimal downtime, and can be easily personalized by going deeper on some areas where skin damage requires a more aggressive approach.
How it works
A sterile roller with fine needles is applied to the skin and penetrates into the dermis, which induces your body to produce more collagen. Additionally, these channels also improve the penetration of Vitamin A and Vitamin C creams by 1000%, which encourage softer and more youthful looking skin. Results can last 5-10 years.
Why should you consider Microneedling
The treatment is not painful and causes no permanent damage to the skin, whereas other treatments like lasers and chemical peels could expose your skin to dirt, dust, and bacteria.
There is a much shorter healing period for Microneedling (1-2 days) than other treatments like dermabrasion (2-5 days) or laser treatment (30-60 days).
The treatment is cost effective.
Microneedling can be done on thin skin, laser resurfaced skin, and all areas of the face, neck, and body.
Microneedling has decreased the look of wrinkles on this man’s face and has made the skin look softer, fuller, and more youthful.
Here, the procedure has significantly reduced fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth area.
Microneedling can also effectively improve the appearance of stretch marks on any part of the body.
