Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves the use of a handheld device with fine needles to create small, controlled punctures (micro-injuries) in the skin.
During a microneedling procedure, we use a pen-like device with tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin. The depth of penetration can be adjusted based on the specific needs of the client and the area being treated.
The micro-injuries created by the needles trigger the body’s natural healing response. As the skin repairs itself, this will induce Collagen Production, new collagen and elastin, which are essential proteins for maintaining the skin’s firmness and elasticity.
- Microneedling can help improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
- It is used to minimize the appearance of scars, including acne scars and surgical scars.
- Microneedling can contribute to smoother skin texture and improved tone.
- The micro-channels created during the procedure can enhance the absorption of topical skincare products.
Microneedling is commonly used to address various skin concerns, including aging skin, acne scars, stretch marks, and uneven skin texture.
The downtime after microneedling is typically minimal, clients may experience redness and mild swelling for a day or two. Complete recovery time varies from person to person.
The number of sessions required depends on the specific skin concerns being addressed. Some people see results after just one session, while others may need multiple sessions for optimal results.
