Micro needling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves puncturing the skin with tiny sterile needles to stimulate collagen production and skin regeneration. The purpose is to create microscopic wounds in the skin that stimulate collagen production and skin regeneration. This can help improve the appearance of scars, fine lines, wrinkles, skin texture, pore size and hyperpigmentation.
Why do you need Micro-needling?
Reducing fine lines and wrinkles – Micro-needling creates tiny injuries in the skin that stimulates collagen production.
Tightening and firming loose skin – By boosting collagen, micro-needling can help tighten and firm sagging skin or skin that has lost elasticity.
Improving acne scars – Micro-needling can reduce the appearance of acne scars, including ice pick scars, enlarged pores, and hyperpigmentation after breakouts.
Minimizing stretch marks – The collagen stimulation of micro-needling can help fade and improve the texture and color of stretch marks over time.
Evening out skin tone – Micro-needling can be helpful for addressing pigment issues like melasma and sunspots. The gentle wounding helps turn over new skin cells.
Smoothing skin texture – Micro-needling can improve the overall look and feel of the skin by reducing visible pores, fine lines, and rough patches.
Enhancing absorption of skincare products – The tiny channels created increase penetration of topical serums and creams
What to Expect?
During a micro-needling treatment, a handle During a micro-needling treatment, a handheld device with hundreds of tiny needles ranging from 0.25 mm to 2.5 mm in length is rolled over the skin. The needles penetrate the outermost layer of the skin called the epidermis, but do not go deep enough to puncture capillaries or nerves.
It can cause mild bleeding and skin reddening that subsides within a few hours after treatment. The tiny wounds trigger the body to produce new collagen and elastin while also releasing growth factors that stimulate skin healing and rejuvenation.
