What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that involves pricking the skin with hundreds of tiny or “micro” needles while the skin is numb, triggering the natural production of elastin and collagen. This additional elastin and collagen improves the texture of your skin, increases fullness, and promotes healing of scars and other skin problems.

What are the Benefits of Microneedling?

Microneedling is a versatile skin care treatment, offering a wide variety of benefits. Microneedling can:

  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Help improve the appearance of acne scars and other scars that aren’t raised
  • Increase the elasticity of your skin, making you look more youthful
  • Make your pores look smaller by plumping the skin around the pores
  • Give topical products better access to the deeper layers of your skin
  • Improve the efficacy of acne medications and treatments
  • Reduce inflammation in patients with rosacea

Unlike many other treatment options, microneedling is safe for patients with hyperpigmentation or melasma1.

How Does Microneedling Work?

When your skin is injured, your body goes into healing mode. One component of what we call “healing mode” is the increased production of certain proteins that are known to fill and plump the skin, heal scarring, brighten your skin, and reverse the signs of aging. Microneedling works by mimicking an injury to your skin and setting in motion the body’s natural healing process.

What Does Microneedling Do?
