What is Microneedling?
Microneedling also referred to as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive treatment that triggers collagen production in skin cells by means of a specialized microneedling device. Increased collagen production improves the overall volume, elasticity, and firmness of the skin.
What conditions does Microneedling treat?
Microneedling has been proven safe and effective in alleviating the following skin conditions:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Stretch marks
- Acne and acne scars
- Enlarged pores
- Hair loss caused by various conditions
What advantages does Microneedling offer?
Microneedling has become popular among patients and doctors alike because it triggers natural collagen production while keeping the top layer of the skin intact. Microneedling has proven to be very effective and is also relatively affordable. The procedure is simple and safe, and produces instantly visible results, with continued improvements for several weeks.
Who is a good candidate for Microneedling?
Any healthy adult wishing to improve their facial appearance through increased collagen production without spending a fortune on expensive treatments may be an ideal candidate for microneedling.
What can I expect after Microneedling?
The microneedling procedure produces a tingling “prickly” sensation that, while somewhat irritating, is not painful. The treatment may cause temporary redness and minor swelling for up to two hours, accompanied by a stinging sensation similar to a mild sunburn. Men may be advised to postpone shaving the facial area for several days following the procedure. Results will be visible instantly with increased improvement over several weeks as increased collagen production continues to increase volume and fullness in the skin cells.
