Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure. It involves pricking the skin with tiny sterilized needles. The small wounds cause your body to make more collagen and elastin, which heal your skin and help you look younger. You might also hear it called collagen induction therapy.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Long Does It Take To See Results?
Patients typically begin to see results around the four to six week mark.
What Does The Procedure Involve?
It begins with cleaning and numbing the skin using a collagen-stimulating product, Vitamin C serum, or a skin lightener. A small pen with 12 tiny needles is used to create tiny wounds in the skin. The speed and adjustability of the needles allows for more effective piercing and absorption of skin products. Vitamin-C serium or Hyalurnoic acid is used after the procedure to hydrate, heal and protect the skin.
What Are The Benefits?
Some of the known benefits of known microneedling are that it greatly improves topical cream effectiveness and penetration and stimulates blood circulation and collagen production; the needles are non-allergenic; it is cost-effective relative to other surfacing procedures; it works on all skin types; and it can treat the scalp, face, and body, including skin around the eyes, mouth, and neck.
Most people will notice redness and mild swelling similar to a slight sunburn for 24-48 hours and there may be slight pinpoint bleeding and/or bruising. Skin will be noticeably smoother and more radiant within a few weeks.
