Microneedling is a powerful tool that permites restoration of dermal-epidermal healthy communication, as much as cell communication. Microneedling, a non-surgical skin treatment, is the insertion of fine needles into the skin to improve collagen production in order to regenerate our skin and maintain a more smooth, even tone as well as youthful appearance. A series of treatments may be required to achieve the desired result as well as the possibility of microneedling being used in conjunction with other treatments, all depending on the client and their needs.

Microneedling can absolutely help to reduce wrinkles, acne scars and stretch marks as well as blend blemishes, even out our pigmentation and give the skin its ‘smooth’ back!

Microneedling permits the restoration of healthy dermal-epidermal communication, as well as cell communication. Specific growth factors and regulatory factors re-establish that communication via microstimulation and can add long term results to many procedures. Microneedling may also be used to prepare for many other aesthetic procedures in order to ensure that, post treatment, the communication between the layers is re-established and the procedure will achieve optimum results. Prior to a face and/or neck lift or facial fat grafting procedure, for example, microneedling could be carried out in order to achieve the best possible outcome of the overall treatment.

Microneedling does work alone, or can be used within a combination of treatments and therefore compliments our 3-dimensional approach to aging skin. Microneedling can be a single or multiple procedure, (1-3 sessions). The rate of complications of microneedling is very low, patients must be selected and the treatment customized to suit. Some patients, for example, require preparation of the skin, especially those with darker skin or melasma.

Dermapen 4th generation cordless microneedling, gives you the chance to not only customize depth and speed of needling per area but also allows you to boost the treatment by combining dermabrasion to treat certain conditions such as scars, stretch marks, rosacea (a common skin condition that causes blushing or flushing and visible blood vessels in your face), and fine wrinkles.

The sensitive zones on our skin may feel slightly more uncomfortable than others (upper lip, for example), but usually you will just feel a buzzing sensation over the skin. Generally people feel as though they have had a great facial after microneedling, though there may be some redness and slight swelling immediately afterwards which will reduce and vanish completely in a matter of hours to a maximum of three days, depending on the intensity of the treatment.
