Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that can be performed in various areas of the body but is primarily used for skin rejuvenation on the face and neck and to treat scars. This treatment has been shown to improve the appearance of stretch marks, boost collagen production, and encourage hair growth. It is also a standard treatment for fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, and to improve skin firmness and lift.
After just one microneedling session, your skin will look plump, blush, and radiant for a few days up to a few weeks. The treatment hydrates, stimulates, and nourishes the skin with nutrients, such as peptides, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, and other tissue renewal vitamins and growth factors known to improve various skin conditions. The slight inflammation and superficial swelling caused by the treatment make the skin look more luminous and plump. Since the effectiveness of the therapy relies on the skin’s natural healing process, some people may experience more immediate and long-lasting results after just one session. Microneedling has shown improvement over time in the treated area’s surface. Treating the skin with multiple sessions spaced at least one month apart can increase collagen and skin elasticity and help to encourage a longer-lasting result. Proper skincare product use and self-care regimens are recommended, along with periodic professional skincare facials and micro-needling maintenance every 1 to 2 years as needed.
