Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that’s used to treat skin concerns by stimulating collagen production. Also known as collagen induction therapy, this treatment creates micro-punctures in the skin using miniature, sterilized needles to generate the production of new collagen.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology Association (AAD), the skin’s healing process after microneedling can help reduce the appearance of scars and dark spots as well as improve skin elasticity.
Microneedling activates your body’s natural cellular regeneration to help tighten and lift skin, while minimizing many common skin problems and can be used in conjunction with other treatments.
Benefits of microneedling can include:
What to expect:
Day 1: Red appearance of the skin will vary depending on your treatment and the depth of the penetration of the needles.
Day 2: Redness or pinkness of the skin will be similar to moderate sunburn. Swelling may be more noticeable.
Day 3: Skin may still be pink or have returned to normal color. Swelling will subside.
