What is Microneedling?

It is a skin treatment that makes use of microneedles. These needles penetrate the skin and perforate it. This leads to the formation of superficial wounds that lead to the stimulation of collagen production and other growth factors. With time, the skin begins to heal. The new skin that is generated is glowing and youthful. Microneedling helps to decrease the appearance of fine lines, acne scars or any other facial scarring. It makes use of the needles to induce micro-injuries on the skin, which force the skin to repair itself by regeneration of cells. The treatment is effective and positive as the depth and penetration of the injury are just right. So it doesn’t cause harm to the skin. The injuries lead to the formation of new tissues which have stronger collagen and elastin. Microneedling is a safe treatment for all skin types.

What happens during the procedure?

To make you comfortable, a numbing agent is applied. After that, the numbing agent is removed and the face is sterilized before starting the treatment. Though the topical agent works to an extent it only makes the process bearable. The procedure isn’t essentially pain-free. It takes about 30 minutes for a full-face treatment. You might experience small bumps and redness in the treated location. This will begin to settle within 24 hours to 48 days. In the meanwhile, ensure that you keep the treated area clean and away from sun exposure.

What does recovery look like?

After the treatment, before you go to bed clean your face using a gentle cleanser and use a simple moisturizer without any active agents. On the next day, you can resume your regular skincare regime. If you want, you can also apply makeup. However, for the first 48 hours, it is recommended that you apply light pressure to the face. If you experience minor pinprick bruising, don’t panic as it is normal. This will start to subside within 2 to 10 days.
