Microneedling involves multiple micro-needles that create fine channels on the skin. It increases collagen production with little to no downtime. Microneedling can be used to treat aged skin, enlarged pores, and scars (including acne scars, surgical scars, and burn scars).Because the treatment promotes new collagen growth, results are seen soon after treatment, with continuing improvement for up to 8 more weeks. Your skin will be refreshed, rejuvenated, and younger-looking than ever.
Microneedling is less expensive than laser treatments, which can cost up to four times as much. While many patients benefit from this treatment, microneedling may work even better for people with darker skin tones because it doesn’t involve heat like laser treatments, which can affect pigmentation.
The area to be treated will be cleaned and numbed with a topical cream or solution. During the treatment, your dermatologist will move a pen-shaped or rolling tool with tiny needles around the area you want to treat. The needles make small cuts in your skin. After treatment, soothing creams or serums calm the treated area for a more comfortable post-treatment experience.
