What is Micro-Needling?
Micro-needling is a minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure that can be used to combat some of the most common visible signs of aging, restoring a healthy, youthful look to the skin. Also referred to as skin needling and collagen induction therapy, this procedure uses a series of fine needles to gently puncture the surface of the skin, jump-starting the body’s natural healing process and spurring the creation of new collagen proteins.
This procedure can be used to improve the appearance of:
- Fine lines
- Uneven pigmentation
- Minor textural irregularities
- Scars and stretch marks
How does it Work?
Micro-needling triggers the formation of supple, youthful-looking skin by creating a series of small, controlled injuries on its surface. While these injuries are significant enough to jumpstart the body’s natural process of skin renewal, they are not large enough to cause scarring or extensive downtime.
Following a micro-needling treatment, patients will gradually begin to see the appearance and health of the treatment area improve as wrinkles, fine lines, scars, stretch marks, and discoloration begin to fade. This is because as the treatment area heals, new skin tissues and collagen proteins are created, restoring the skin from the inside out.
What are the Benefits of Micro-Needling?
- Minimally invasive and chemical-free
- Minimal downtime
- Safe for all skin types and ethnicities
- Safe for use on sensitive areas
Are there any Side Effects?
A topical anesthetic cream is applied to the skin before treatment begins, improving patient comfort during the length of the procedure. While most patients experience some degree of redness, discomfort, and swelling after treatment, full recovery usually doesn’t take longer than three to four days.
