Microneedling involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles to induce collagen production. This non-ablative skin treatment targets deeper layers of the skin to stimulate new tissue formation through the body’s wound healing cascade without removing the top layer.
Microneedling improves skin colour and texture, while treating various skin conditions such as fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, and sun damage. Patients may experience redness for 12 to 48 hours after treatment. Optimal results may be achieved after 4 to 6 treatments. Collagen remodeling will continue over several weeks and the skin will continue to improve over the next 6 to 12 months after treatments with a proper skin care regimen.
