How does microneedling work?
If you’re wondering what microneedling is and how it can benefit your skin, then you’ve come to the right place! Collagen induction therapy, or microneedling, has been gaining popularity among skincare professionals in recent years.
Microneedling creates tiny puncture wounds in the epidermis layer of skin, encouraging new collagen production, stimulating the growth of new healthier skin.
Most dermatologists agree that microneedling leads to long-term changes in your skin by producing more collagen at deeper levels than normal treatments. Many patients see improvement for up to three months after their final session which can continue to last for up to two years.
What is microneedling good for?
Microneedling can treat a variety of skin conditions such as fine lines and wrinkles, skin texture and laxity, reducing pore size, acne scarring, pigmentation, stretch marks.
Side effects of microneedling
As with any invasive procedure, there are certain side effects. They include: Mild Erythema, Bruising, infection, and possible discoloration of your skin. However, using a qualified practioner will reduce the risks of these side effects.
Is microneedling painful?
Most microneedling treatments are not painful, and if done correctly by a qualified professional, you shouldn’t feel any pain. By using a derma pen (as we do at Skinoveve) no topical anesthesia is even required.
Things to consider before having microneedling
Before undergoing treatment, make sure you are using a qualified practioner, who follows proper hygiene protocols, e.g. wearing gloves and ensuring single use disposable needles.
At Skinoveve we pride ourselves with having the highest hygiene standards and only use medical grade pre-packed single use items.
This treatment helps to rejuvenate the skin through the use of tiny needles that are passed over the skin.
