Microneedling utilizes a tool with multiple tiny needles to create microscopic punctures or channels in the skin. The purpose of microneedling is to stimulate collagen and elastin production, two proteins that keep the skin elastic and firm.
During the procedure, a trained professional will use a handheld device with very fine needles to make tiny punctures in the skin. These punctures are usually very small and are created in a controlled manner to ensure that the skin is not damaged.
The microneedling process can be done on several areas including the face, neck, hands, and arms. The length and density of the needles used can vary depending on the area being treated and the desired outcome. After microneedling, the skin may be red and slightly swollen for a few hours to a few days. Over time, however, the skin will begin to heal and regenerate, with the new collagen and elastin fibers filling in fine lines, wrinkles, and other imperfections. The use of microneedling can be effective in reducing acne scarring, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, as well as other skin conditions. It is typically done in a series of sessions spaced several weeks apart, with results becoming more noticeable over time.
Yes, microneedling is safe and minimally invasive. However, it is important to ensure that the treatment is performed by a qualified professional.
A typical microneedling treatment can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.
The results of microneedling can last up to a year.
Microneedling can cause some discomfort, but topical numbing cream is typically used to reduce any pain or discomfort.
The number of treatments needed depends on the individual and their skin concerns. Generally, a series of 3-6 treatments is recommended for optimal results.
Results from microneedling can be seen after the first treatment, however, the full results may take several weeks or months to be seen.
