How can microneedling help my skin

Microneedling is a popular skincare treatment that can jumpstart your body’s natural healing responses. It can address many specific problems and help rejuvenate your skin.

How does microneedling help the skin?

Microneedling helps the skin by creating tiny puncture wounds which force the derma, a deeper layer of skin, to rebuild. It can also be used to help topical treatments penetrate more deeply into the skin.

It can be used to help improve the appearance of the following:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Scars
  • Age spots
  • Stretch marks
  • Rosacea
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Reduced skin elasticity

Is microneedling effective?

Microneedling is effective at increasing collagen production and reducing signs of aging. It helps with many different types of skin issues, giving you significant results from a non-invasive procedure.

How often should microneedling be done?

You’ll probably need about four treatments to see the desired results, with one treatment being performed every month. The initial course of treatment will take about 3 to 4 months.
After this initial course of treatment, yearly maintenance treatments are recommended.

Is microneedling for acne scars permanent?

Microneedling works best for depressed, not raised scars. That’s because it stimulates the production of collagen to fill them in and reduce their appearance. Regular maintenance will probably be recommended.

How long does it take for skin to heal after microneedling?

Your skin may be irritated for just a few days after your treatment. Sunscreen application is highly recommended, since your skin will be more sensitive to the sun.
Your skin rejuvenates new tissue relatively quickly, so you should be able to see noticeable results within a few weeks.

Is microneedling good for oily skin?

Microneedling can sometimes make oily skin less oily, and since it reduces the size of your pores, they’ll be less likely to become clogged with oil and cause pimples.

Who is a good candidate for microneedling?

Most adults who would like to see improvements in their skin without undergoing an invasive procedure are good candidates for microneedling. You should be free from any infections, however, and you should not have a rash or fever. And if you’re pregnant or nursing, you should wait until a later date to have microneedling treatment.
