Microneedling is a popular cosmetic procedure that helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and other skin imperfections. The process involves using a device called a derma roller or derma pen, which is a small roller with tiny needles attached. The derma roller rolls the skin and creates tiny punctures in the top layer. These punctures are meant to stimulate the body’s natural healing process and create new collagen and elastin, which helps to reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging.
The results of microneedling can vary depending on a person’s skin type and condition, but many people report seeing improvements in their skin tone and texture after just a few treatments. Additionally, because the procedure stimulates the body’s natural healing process, the results tend to be long-lasting. However, multiple treatments may be needed to achieve the desired results.
Benefits of Microneedling include:
- Improves skin texture & tone
- Minimizes acne scars & other scars
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles
- Stimulates collagen & elastin production
- Helps reduce pore size
- Improves skin hydration
- Reduces hyperpigmentation
- Evens out skin tone
Most patients report minimal discomfort during the procedure. The use of a numbing agent before the treatment can help alleviate any pain or discomfort. After the procedure, a moisturizer or serum is usually applied to the treatment area to help promote healing and minimize any discomfort.
The results of microneedling can last up to two years with regular maintenance treatments.
After a micro needling treatment, your skin may be slightly red and swollen. This should go away in a few days.
The number of microneedling treatments needed depends on the individual and the desired results. Generally, 4-6 treatments are recommended for optimal results.
