What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation therapy used to tighten skin and improve the texture and quality. Microneedling involves the use of a tool that has small needles at the end. As the tool comes into contact with the skin, it creates tiny punctures that produce a small wound, which in turn, trigger the body to produce collagen and elastin.
What is Microneedling Used For?
Microneedling is used to reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks and pore sizes. A variety of devices are available, with different needle points and sizes. There are both automatic and manual Microneedling tools. The tool used and the amount of pressure applied is dependent on the outcomes that the patient wishes to see.
Why Should I Use Microneedling?
Microneedling is a cost-effective solution for someone who does not want invasive surgery, or whose skin is not suitable for peeling or laser treatments. Microneedling improves the quality of the skin and can be used to treat areas such as the eyes, mouth, hands or chest. Microneedling should be performed in an office with a specialist.
