Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that uses fine needles to create tiny punctures in the skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing process and promoting the production of collagen. This treatment can help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and uneven skin tone and texture.
The procedure typically involves using a device with a number of tiny, sterile needles that create controlled punctures in the skin. The needle length and depth can be adjusted based on the specific concerns being treated and the desired outcome. The punctures stimulate the skin’s natural healing process, leading to the production of new collagen and elastin, which can help improve the overall appearance of the skin.
One of the main benefits of microneedling is that it is relatively non-invasive and has minimal downtime, compared to other skin rejuvenation treatments such as chemical peels or laser resurfacing. The procedure itself takes only 30-60 minutes, and most patients experience only mild redness and swelling after treatment, which typically fades within a few hours.
