What is Microneedling?
Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses very fine, short (up to 3 mm) needles to make small puncture wounds into the top layer of the skin.
It may sound scary, but these small punctures stimulate the skin’s healing process, accelerating skin cell turnover and boosting collagen production.
This procedure engages the body’s natural healing mechanism, revealing plump, youthful-looking skin. A 2008 study¹ showed that regular Microneedling sessions increased collagen and elastin production by 400% six months after treatment.
This makes it an excellent alternative treatment for combating wrinkles and signs of ageing, but its benefits aren’t limited to wrinkle reduction.
In fact, Microneedling can target multiple skin concerns.
How can Microneedling improve my complexion?
Microneedling encourages the skin to heal itself and this natural healing process can correct several issues:
Acne scars. Studies² show that Microneedling is very effective in reducing the appearance of acne scars, with 36 out of 37 participants noting a visible improvement in their skin.
What’s more, these amazing results come with almost no down time and no significant adverse effects.
Microneedling for acne is just as effective as fractional laser treatments, but it is better tolerated by the skin.
Hyperpigmentation and discolouration. Microneedling stimulates collagen production, which may reverse the extra pigmentation caused by sun damage.
If you have patches of brownish, blotchy skin, Microneedling can help you restore a bright and even skin tone.
Ageing and wrinkles. As we age, our bodies naturally produce less collagen and elastin, which are key in maintaining the skin plump and smooth.
Microneedling stimulates the production of these two proteins, rejuvenating and tightening photo-aged skin.
Microneedling is one of the cosmetic procedures where you can see the results right away.
After the treatment, you’ll notice that your skin is visibly plumper and rejuvenated.
However, the results will get even better in time. In the following weeks, your skin will produce more collagen, which will lead to a reduction in smile lines, crow’s feet, and deep forehead wrinkles.
To maintain these results, multiple sessions are necessary, spaced according to your skin needs.
