MICRONEEDLING

Microneedling, which is also referred to as skin needling, percutaneous collagen induction (PCI), and collagen induction therapy (CIT), is a skin treatment that is becoming increasingly popular due to its ability to treat a wide range of skin conditions such as acne scars, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and enlarged pores. This procedure is not painful and requires minimal downtime.

WHAT EXACTLY IS MICRONEEDLING?

Microneedling is a dermatological procedure that uses small, fine needles to create micro-punctures on the surface of the skin. This controlled method of injuring the skin then triggers the skin to heal itself, during which skin rejuvenation also occurs.

HOW DOES MICRONEEDLING WORK?

Before the procedure begins, a topical anesthetic is applied to the skin, in order to numb the targeted area. Then, a pen-like tool that contains fine stainless steel needles, is used on the skin to create the micro-punctures. Once the microneedling procedure has been carried out, a pure hyaluronic acid serum is applied as this helps keep the skin hydrated, plump and protected.

The microneedling process stimulates the body into producing more of its skin-healing agents, such as collagen and elastin, to heal the damaged area. Since collagen and elastin are essentially the building blocks of your skin, giving it its structure, smoothness and tightness, these new proteins will help the skin look and feel slicker, tighter and younger.

WHO IS A SUITABLE CANDIDATE FOR MICRONEEDLING?

Microneedling is safe for most adults of all skin types. It is not recommended if you are taking blood thinning medications or have active acne, keloid scarring or an active skin infection.

Microneedling treats a wide range of different skin conditions, such as:

  • Acne scars
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Rough skin texture
  • Enlarged pores
  • Loose and sagging skin
  • Dark spots and hyperpigmentation
  • Stretch marks

DOWNTIME AND AFTERCARE

Generally, microneedling is quite a comfortable and low-risk procedure, and has a short recovery time. Patients typically experience redness immediately following the procedure. Healing time is approximately 3 days.

Of course, just like every other procedure, complications and side effects are possible, though very rare.

These can include:

  • Bleeding
  • Bruising
  • Skin infections
  • Scarring
  • Pigmentation problems

These side effects aren’t common, which is why microneedling is now being used more and more to treat a number of different skin concerns.

After undergoing a microneedling treatment, your skin will be quite vulnerable to damage. A sunscreen is essential, especially in the two weeks following your treatment. Try to avoid chemicals and any form of exfoliation during this time too, as all of this will only irritate your skin.

A rich moisturizer, applied twice a day, will aid the skin’s healing process by keeping it hydrated.

HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED FOR BEST RESULTS?

Microneedling is typically performed in a series of four to six sessions, spaced about a month apart. With each session, your skin becomes thicker and stronger, meaning that the needles can be inserted slightly deeper each time, since your skin will be able to tolerate this. The exact number of sessions you will need depends on the skin conditions you are trying to treat, as well as the treatment area.
