Microneedling is a dermaroller 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 is mostly used on the face and may treat various scars, wrinkles, and large pores.
What is Micro-needling?
For someone who has never been to a cosmetic clinic, micro needling treatments, in its simplest definition, is a procedure which uses small needles to prick the skin and generate new collagen. Pricking of the skin encourages your body to produce new skin tissue. Micro needling is minimally invasive with preparation and procedure time of about two hours or less depending on the treatment. Recovery time is just under 2-5 days. The number of session varies per client and would usually require four procedures or more to get the ideal results. After multiple sessions you will notice your skin becoming for firmer and tighter!
What skin conditions require this treatment?
This procedure is popularly used in treating scarring, aging, wrinkles and pores. Micro needling helps rejuvenate the dullness and tiredness of your skin and helps fight early signs of ageing. With collagen production, this procedure also helps reduced visible fine lines on your face. Micro needling also improves uneven skin tone, acne or chicken pox scarring and skin damage due to over exposure to sun.
Clients can expect minor redness around the areas for a couple of days after undertaking the treatment. In some occasions, there might be some forms of bleeding, bruising and peeling around the area. If infection occurs, it is recommended to seek immediate advice from your doctor.
Who can undergo this treatment?
Pregnant women and those who are under acne medication are discourage from undergoing such procedure as this may lead to complications. This treatment may not also be ideal for individuals with skin diseases such as eczema and proriasis. If you have recently undergone radiation therapy, you may also forgo undergoing this treatment. If you are in a good condition and currently dealing with skin issues, we highly recommend to book a consultation with our doctors.
