Microneedling treatment is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves using a device containing fine needles.
The needles puncture the skin to create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin. Microneedling has been shown to reduce the visibility of acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles, as well as to diminish hyper-pigmentation and improve skin tone and texture, resulting in smoother, firmer, younger-looking skin.
What does Microneedling
Depending on the area of your face or body being treated and the type of device used (i.e. needle length), the procedure is well-tolerated and in some cases virtually painless, feeling only a mild prickling sensation. Your practitioner will apply a topical anesthetic to your skin prior to treatment to reduce any pain and discomfort.
The inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short and fades significantly within hours from redness to pinkish that may last for 24 to 48 hours. In order to reduce visible redness. Your skin will be pink or red in appearance, much like a sunburn, for a couple of hours following treatmen . Minor bleeding and bruising is possible depending on the length of the needle used and the number of times it is pressed across the treatment area, also your skin may feel warm, tight, and itchy for a short while.
To ensure the right healing environment, for 2-3 days do not use AHA’s (glycolic Acid), retinol, acidic or “active” ingredients. Exposure to sun should also be avoided or zinc based sunblock should be used.
Microneedling improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. It also stimulates tissue regeneration, disfiguring scars, especially acne scars can be improved as new collagen fibers elevate the depressed scar tissue with the periphery skin.
