What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a non-surgical procedure that involves using a device with small needles to make tiny punctures in the surface of the skin. It is often used for treating wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, and other skin imperfections.
The needles used in microneedling therapy vary in size from 0.5mm to 3mm. They penetrate the upper layers of the skin without causing any damage or discomfort. As the needles penetrate the skin, they create microscopic wounds which stimulate the body’s natural healing process. This leads to the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that help give skin its firmness and elasticity.
Benefits of microneedling
Reduction of wrinkles and fine lines: Microneedling can be effective at reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and crow’s feet around the eyes. This occurs because the skin heals itself by producing more collagen and elastin, helping to fill out wrinkles and give the skin a smoother appearance.
Improved acne scarring: If you suffer from acne scarring, microneedling may help reduce the visibility of these scars. By creating tiny punctures in the skin, the treatment encourages collagen production and helps fill out the depressed areas caused by acne scars.
Better skin texture: Microneedling can also be used to improve skin texture and tone. By stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, the treatment can help plump up the skin and minimize the appearance of pores.
Although microneedling is generally considered safe when performed by a qualified practitioner, there are some risks associated with the procedure. These include:
- Skin infection
- Changes in pigmentation
- Excessive redness or swelling
It is important to be aware of these possible side effects before undergoing the procedure. You should always speak to your doctor about any concerns you have.
