Find yourself umming and ahring on whether to proceed with this treatment, Look no further!

Microneedling is a method that some dermatologists use to treat different skin conditions. The technique involves using multiple tiny, sterile needles to puncture the skin and cause physical trauma.

Microneedling increases the production of collagen and holds other healing factors by causing tiny abrasion trauma to the skin. Ageing is the cause of declining collagen in the skin, further contributing to wrinkles and other signs of ageing. Collagen is an essential protein that helps keep your skin looking youthful, feeling smooth & firm with a stretchy, bounce back, texture. 

Microneedling can also help aid recovery on other skin conditions such as Acne Scarring, stretch marks, or other scars which cause a slight decrease in collagen production. It is important to note that it is not a quick fix. It involves the growth of new skin and it can take up to several months before you see improvements or full results of the facial treatment.

Microneedling Facial Treatment targets skin-related complaints:

Microneedling can also help rejuvenate the skin.

In Addition, professionals can deposit certain medications deeper into the skin such as topical tretinoin or vitamin C. This can boost the treatment of a variety of issues, including acne scarring.

What are the benefits of Microneedling Facial Treatment?

  • Enhances texture of the skin
  • Stimulates collagen production
  • Can help reduce scars and hyperpigmentation
  • Can reduce the appearance of wrinkles

The biggest benefit of Microneedling is its ability to absolutely enhance the texture of your skin.

What are the risks of Microneedling Facial Treatment?

This treatment is generally considered to be safe and effective by the medical community, but there are still some risks. 

One of the primary risks is skin irritation after the procedure. Other side effects could include:

  • Swelling
  • Discomfort at the site
  • Redness
  • Bruising
  • Dryness
  • Flaking of the skin

Bleeding is an uncommon reaction to have from Microneedling, though it may be more common to occur after a deeper treatment. This also may be more of a risk for people who have bleeding disorders or are taking blood-thinning medication. It is highly important that you disclose this information to your doctor or clinician in your consultation before this treatment.

There is also a risk of more serious side effects, including:

  • Infection
  • Skin pigment changes
  • Reaction to topical medications used during treatment

Some devices can involve additional risks. Those treatments that use energy or heat can increase the likelihood of burns. 

Lastly, if you have any of the following skin issues, you are not suitable for Microneedling:

  • An active skin infection
  • Active acne
  • Keloid scarring
  • An unstable skin type

Making an appointment with your dermatologist or a medical skincare professional before any treatment will give you advice on what treatments are suited to you and your skin or how you can minimise the risks.
