Microneedling, or Collagen Induction Therapy, is a skin rejuvenation therapy that uses multiple tiny needles to create minuscule punctures to the skin. If this sounds scary to you, the punctures are more like pinpricks that enter only surface-level deep. This process works to rejuvenate skin by increasing collagen production, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and scarring while improving the overall texture of your skin.
The non-surgical therapy is beneficial for those looking to improve their skin’s appearance with minimal pain and no downtime for recovery.
Is it right for me?
Adults looking to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, increase collagen production, or combat scars from acne or injuries are good candidates for microneedling. The procedure can even skin tone (including stubborn melasma) and refine enlarged pores. However, if you have an active case of Rosacea or Psoriasis, this might not be the right treatment for you.
Not just for the face.
The procedure is not exclusive to the face. Microneedling can help other areas of the body that need repair because of acne scars or stretch marks. The buttocks, stomach, or thighs are good candidates.
Will it hurt?
When you arrive at your appointment with a clean, dry face, your technician will apply a numbing cream to the treatment area so that the procedure will be comfortable.
Post-treatment, you may experience slight pinkness like wind or sun burn. At the very worst, a few tiny puncture scabs may pop up and fade in a few days.
Find an expert.
Microneedling is very technique-dependent, and it has the potential to do long-term damage to your skin in inexperienced hands. Find a provider who’s been well-trained in the procedure and can show you before and after photos with excellent results.
