What is it?
Microneedling is a collagen induction therapy. This treatment involves using fine needles to create tiny invisible puncture wounds on the top layer of the skin. The process stimulates your skin’s natural ability to heal itself and in the process produces collagen and elastin.
The skin’s repair process results in a thickening of the derm. With its ability to trigger the generation of new skin cells, just a few sessions of microneedling will noticeably reduce fine lines, scars, pores, and deep wrinkles.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
There is no tissue destruction with microneedling. The speed of the reciprocating needle tip makes the treatment comfortable. The small channels in the epidermis close very quickly and the skin begins a healing response right away.
Depending on the depth of the skin defect, you may see only redness or you may experience some pinpoint bleeding which stops almost immediately. Post-treatment, there is minimal downtime, but do expect swelling and redness for up to 48 hours.
