Some dermatologists use to treat different skin conditions. The technique involves using multiple tiny, sterile needles to puncture the skin and cause physical trauma.
This trauma prompts the derma, a deeper layer of skin, to rebuild.
Microneedling is a 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 may help address many skin-related complaints, including:
- fine lines and wrinkles
- acne scars
- age spots
- large pores
- reduced skin elasticity
- uneven skin tone
- skin pigmentation issues
- stretch marks
- it may also help rejuvenate the skin
- loose skin, such as after weight loss or liposuction
In addition, professionals can use microneedling to deposit medication, such as topical tretinoin ur vitamin C, deeper into the skin. This can boost the treatment of a variety of issues, including acne scarring.
Microneedling is primarily used on the face.
In addition to facial concerns, microneedling is sometimes used to treat stretch marks in other areas of the body. Microneedling was effective for stretch marks on the thighs and abdominal area when combined with fillers.
Scarring on other body parts may also be treated with this procedure.
Microneedling is minimally invasive, requiring no downtime.
It’s considered safe for most people who are in overall good health.
You’ll experience minor redness and irritation for a few days after the procedure.
