Boost collagen production
and improve skin quality

Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that involves puncturing the skin with fine needles. These controlled micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing process, prompting collagen and elastin production. The result is improved skin texture and reduced wrinkles, fine lines, and scars. Microneedling is versatile and suitable for various skin types and concerns, offering a minimally invasive solution for skin rejuvenation and enhancing overall complexion.

  • Acne scars

Microneedling FAQs

How does microneedling work?

Microneedling works by using fine needles to induce controlled micro-injuries to the skin’s dermis. These tiny punctures trigger the body’s natural wound-healing response, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen provides structural support to the skin, while elastin enhances its elasticity. As new collagen forms, it improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and other imperfections. The increased collagen and elastin production contribute to firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin over time.

Is microneedling painful?

Discomfort during microneedling is typically minimal. Many individuals report feeling a mild sensation akin to light scratching or tingling. To ensure your comfort, a topical numbing cream may be applied before the procedure. Additionally, the depth of needle penetration can be adjusted based on your pain tolerance and the area being treated.

How long does a microneedling session take?

The duration of a microneedling session can vary depending on the size of the treatment area and the specific concerns being addressed. Generally, a session lasts between 30 minutes to an hour. However, this timeframe may be longer if multiple areas are being treated.

How many microneedling sessions are needed to see results?

Visible improvements in skin texture can be noticed after just one microneedling session. However, for optimal results, a series of 3 to 6 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart is typically recommended. Your skincare provider can tailor a treatment plan to meet your specific needs.

Is there any downtime after microneedling?

You may experience some redness, swelling, and mild sensitivity in the treated area for a few days. However, there’s no downtime, and you can resume most of your daily activities immediately, provided you avoid strenuous workouts and direct sunlight for a day or two.

Who is a good candidate for microneedling?

Microneedling is suitable for most individuals seeking to improve the appearance of their skin and address various concerns such as wrinkles, acne scars, uneven texture, and pigmentation issues. However, it may not be suitable for those with certain skin conditions, active acne outbreaks, or individuals prone to keloid scarring.

How long do the results of microneedling last?

The results of microneedling can be long-lasting, especially when combined with proper skincare maintenance and sun protection. However, since the natural aging process continues, periodic maintenance may be recommended to sustain optimal results. Your skincare provider can advise you on the best maintenance schedule based on your skin needs.
