What is Microneedling?
The practice of microneedling originated in 1995 and has seen many advances and improvements in the years leading up to the present day. Microneedling began with tattoo gun experimentation to break up scar tissue, which eventually led to the relatively harmless, life-changing treatment we use today. There is no telling where microneedling might go next.
Microneedling is most frequently used to rejuvenate the skin and treat acne scars. Skin rejuvenation is achieved due to the collagen production encouraged by microneedling, which leads to skin smoothing and tightening. These treatments may require anywhere from 4-6 sessions to deliver the desired effect, but require little to no downtime.
As the name suggests, microneedling uses tiny needles to penetrate the outer layer of skin cells to kickstart the body’s wound healing process. This procedure does not actually damage the epidermis, which causes an overall better aesthetic appeal than some resurfacing procedures. Many uses have been found for microneedling, which include treatments for:
- Acne scars
- Posttraumatic/burn scars
- Alopecia (sudden hair loss)
- Skin rejuvenation
- Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
- Stretch marks
Does Microneedling Have Side Effects?
Common side effects include redness and irritation around the injection site, but these usually dissipate within a few hours. As opposed to other ablative and resurfacing procedures, microneedling rarely leads to hyperpigmentation, which means it is relatively safe to use in all skin types.
Do I Qualify for Microneedling?
Even taking into account microneedling’s wide range of uses, it does have some limitations for certain types of scarring and some skin imperfections. Ask us about combining some of our other treatments and products with microneedling for maximum results
