Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure to encourage collagen production by taking advantage of the body’s natural healing response. Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that uses small, sterilized needles to prick the skin. The purpose of this treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue to smooth, firm, and tone skin. Microneedling is mostly used on the face and may reduce the appearance of acne, scars, dark spots, wrinkles, and large pores. It can also be used as Drug Delivery for hydration and lightening of hyperchromia.
Microneedling vs. microdermabrasion: What’s the difference?
Microneedling and microdermabrasion are both procedures to improve the look and texture of your skin. But microdermabrasion doesn’t use needles. Instead, a healthcare provider uses a device with a rough edge, like sandpaper, to exfoliate the uppermost layer of your skin. Microneedling goes deeper into your skin than microdermabrasion, so it might work better for problems beneath the surface, such as acne scars.
Who gets microneedling?
Microneedling has cosmetic and medical uses. You might consider microneedling if you’re concerned about:
Fine lines or wrinkles.
Loose or crepey (thin and wrinkled) skin.
Mild scars, especially those from acne or burns.
Skin discoloration or uneven skin tone.
The procedure can also help people who have medical conditions such as:
Alopecia areata (hair loss due to an autoimmune disease).
Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).
In some cases, healthcare providers use microneedling to deliver drugs or vaccines directly into your skin. The microneedles might be part of a patch that people apply themselves instead of going to their healthcare provider for shots.
Microneedling can help improve the appearance and texture of your skin. It can minimize stretch marks, scars, wrinkles and other skin concerns. It doesn't carry the risk of skin discoloration, unlike some facial rejuvenation procedures that use heat, light or lasers.
Talk to your healthcare provider before getting microneedling if you have: Acne or are taking medication for acne. Blood disorders or are on anticoagulants (drugs that prevent blood clots). Cancer and are receiving chemotherapy or radiation therapy. Frequent skin rashes (contact dermatitis) or cold sores. Keloidal tendency (your skin forms hard, raised scars). Moles, freckles, skin tags or other growths that change in size or shape or bleed. Skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis.
