Microneedling alone provides fantastic benefits but offers much better results if combined with some form of superficial exfoliation.
Micro-needling (collagen induction therapy) is a minimally invasive treatment to rejuvenate the skin. When used together, Hyaluronic Acid and Microneedling result in increased volume and diminished visible signs of aging by revealing smoother and tighter skin. A device with fine needles creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin.
Results include improved texture, firmness, reduced scars, and pore size. Micro-needling may also be combined with a topical treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions About Microneedling
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that involves using a device with fine needles to create small, controlled punctures in the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the body's natural wound-healing process, which can help improve the appearance of skin. If you're considering microneedling, you may have some questions.
What is microneedling?
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves using a device with fine needles to create tiny, controlled punctures in the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate collagen and elastin production, helping to rejuvenate the skin.
What are the benefits of microneedling?
Microneedling can help improve the appearance of several skin issues, including acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, stretch marks, and uneven skin texture and tone. It can also enhance the effectiveness of topical skincare products.
Is microneedling painful?
Most people experience mild discomfort during the procedure, but a topical numbing cream is typically applied to minimize pain. The pain level varies from person to person and can depend on the needle depth.
How long does the procedure take?
A microneedling session typically lasts 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the treatment area and technique.
How many sessions are needed for results?
The number of sessions required varies based on individual skin concerns. However, most people benefit from 3-6 treatments about 4-6 weeks apart.
What is the recovery time?
After a microneedling treatment, some redness and swelling can last for a day or two. Most people can return to their normal activities within a few days. The recovery time may be longer if deeper needles are used.
Are there any side effects or risks?
Common side effects include redness, swelling, and minor bruising. In rare cases, there can be more severe side effects, such as infection or scarring. It's essential to choose a qualified professional for the procedure.
Can microneedling be done at home?
While at-home microneedling devices are available, it's generally safer and more effective when performed by a trained and licensed professional. DIY microneedling can carry a higher risk of complications if not done correctly.
Who is a good candidate for micro needling?
Microneedling is suitable for most skin types and tones. However, it may not be recommended for individuals with active skin infections, open wounds, or a history of keloid scarring.
Is microneedling safe for all skin types?
Microneedling is generally safe for all skin types. Still, it's essential for people with certain skin conditions, such as eczema or psoriasis, to consult with a dermatologist before undergoing the procedure.
How long do the results of microneedling last?
The results of microneedling can last for several months. However, maintenance sessions may be needed to sustain the improvements over time.
Can microneedling be combined with other treatments?
Microneedling can be combined with other cosmetic procedures, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy or chemical peels, to enhance results.
It's essential to consult with a licensed and experienced professional to determine if microneedling is the proper treatment for your specific skin concerns and to discuss any further questions or concerns.
