Microneedling is a dermaroller procedure that uses small needles to prick the skin. The purpose of treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin. Microneedling is mostly used on the face and may treat various scars, wrinkles, and large pores
Rolling the skin with these tiny needles will produce a very mild degree of trauma. This trauma causes the skin to heal itself, releasing new collagen and epidermal growth factors in abundance. Hundreds of tiny punctures are created using the microneedling device; these will close in seconds following treatment. Those with a fear of needles shouldn't discard this technique straight away as, depending on the device used, the microneedle length can vary from 0.5 to 3.0 mm, which is incredibly tiny compared to a traditional needle. And, these devices are gentle enough to be used around the delicate eye area.
Safety is key.
In Clinic/Salon: Numbing cream is applied to the entire face 30 minutes prior to the treatment. It should be relatively painless and will leave a feeling of mild sunburn for up to 12 hours. It is usual for the skin to be moderately red and feel quite dry for the first 24 hours but usual make up can be worn. You will be recommended an at home regime to keep the skin hydrated and protected.
