What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that’s used to treat skin concerns via collagen production. Microneedling works by encouraging your skin to create more collagen. The idea is that tiny controlled needle-pricks from the procedure cause slight injury to the skin, therefore, the skin responds by making new collagen-rich tissue.
This new skin tissue is, in turn, more even in tone and texture. It’s normal for the skin to lose collagen via age or injury. By encouraging the skin to make new tissue, there will be more collagen to help make the skin much firmer, too.
You may be an ideal candidate for this procedure if you’re in good health and have certain skin concerns that haven’t responded to home treatments or other types of dermatologic procedures, such as peels.
The Science Behind Microneedling
A Dermaroller contains hundreds of tiny needles, which, when in use, create micro-injuries on the skin. In turn, this sends collagen and elastin production into overdrive to compensate as it heals which should leave your complexion tighter and plumper than it was beforehand. Due to the Dermaroller’s deep penetration of the skin, serums can be up to 90% more effective when used in conjunction with microneedling.
When Will I Start to See Results?
It can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen. However the process should continue over the following months to provide you with a natural and long lasting enhancement.
How Many Treatments will I Need?
We will talk to you in depth about this during your consultation, but treatment plans usually consist of a course of three treatments at six weekly intervals. For the treatment of acne and other types of scarring it may be necessary for more treatments.
Will There Be Any Downtime?
After the treatment, your skin will be red and is likely to be so for the remainder of the day. By the following day your skin should return to normal and you should be able to pursue your normal everyday activities as usual.
