Microneedling therapy, is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles.
The needles are used to puncture the skin to create a controlled skin injury.
Microneedling may help with issues like:
- Hair loss (also called alopecia)
- Dark spots or patches on your skin (hyperpigmentation)
- Large pores
- Reduced skin elasticity
- Stretch marks
- Sun damage
- Fine lines and wrinkles
What Happens Next?
The procedure usually takes 10-20 minutes, depending on how big the area is. Most people need 4-6 treatments to see a difference.
You may notice skin irritation and redness within the first few days following the procedure.
This is a natural response to the small “injuries” made by the needles in your skin.
Your skin will also be more sensitive to the sun, so sunscreen is a must.
