Microneedling is used to improve the appearance of various skin concerns, including acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, uneven skin texture, and stretch marks.
During the procedure, a microneedling device is gently passed over the skin, creating tiny punctures. This process triggers the body’s wound healing response, promoting the production of new collagen and skin tissue.
There is typically some downtime after microneedling, depending on the intensity of the treatment. Mild redness, swelling, and sensitivity can occur for a day or two after the procedure. More intensive treatments might require a few days of recovery.
Results are gradual and become more noticeable as the skin’s natural collagen production increases. Improvement can be observed within a few weeks to months after the initial treatment, with continued enhancement over time.
