Microneedling is a very popular treatment these days as it has multiple benefits and can be used in a variety of conditions.
The technique involves using a dermaroller with multiple tiny, sterile needles to puncture the skin and cause physical trauma. This trauma prompts the deeper layers of skin, to rebuild. The purpose of treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that’s used to treat skin concerns via collagen production. Also known as collagen induction therapy.
Collagen is an essential protein that helps keep the skin looking youthful, with a firm, smooth, and stretchy texture. Aging causes the decline of collagen in the skin, contributing to wrinkles and other signs of aging.
Microneedling may help address many skin-related complaints, including:
- enlarged pores
- acne scars
- skin pigmentation issues
- stretch marks
- loose skin, such as after weight loss or liposuction
In addition, we can use microneedling to deposit medication, such as topical tretinoin or vitamin C, deeper into the skin. This can boost the treatment of a variety of issues, including acne scarring.
