What is a Microneedling?

Microneedling is a cosmetic technique in which microscopic surface punctures are made in the skin using a device equipped with fine needles. This improves the absorption of topical serums or creams and boosts the formation of collagen, which improves the texture, tone, and overall appearance of the skin.

Who Is A Good Candidate
for Microneedling?

Microneedling treatments are suitable for various candidates, particularly those who:

  • Want to improve their skin's texture, tone, and overall appearance
  • Want to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, enlarged pores, or uneven skin pigmentation
  • Are seeking non-surgical facial rejuvenation
  • Are seeking to stimulate collagen production, which can improve skin firmness and elasticity
  • Wish to enhance overall skin radiance, diminish fine lines, and reduce the effects of sun damage and aging

How Does Microneedling Work?

Microneedling works by using a device equipped with fine, sterile needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin's surface. The skin's natural healing process is triggered by these micro-injuries, which also encourage the development of collagen and elastin, two proteins that are crucial for the structure and suppleness of the skin. The skin gets firmer, smoother, and more youthful as it heals itself. Furthermore, the efficiency of topical serums or products administered during or after the treatment is improved by these micro-injuries, which also help with better absorption. Improved skin texture, less wrinkles, and a more youthful appearance are the outcomes of this procedure.

The Microneedling Procedure

A numbing lotion is applied for comfort and the patient's skin is washed before the microneedling process.

The regulated micro-injuries are created by passing the fine-needle microneedling device across the skin. After that, a calming serum could be used.

The average procedure lasts about thirty minutes. Redness and slight swelling are possible after the treatment, but they go away in a few days.

Post-Treatment Care

Proper aftercare for microneedling treatments can help the effectiveness of the procedure.
