Microneedling entails using sterile, fine needles to prickle your skin at specific therapeutic depths to rejuvenate it. The process releases radiofrequency waves in your skin, inflicting microscopic, controlled damage at the surface level to collagen production. This in turn leads to smoother, firmer, and brighter skin. 

The damage caused by micro-needling is minimal; it does not cause any scarring or scabbing. Instead, it generates your body’s healing process and reduces the appearance of scars, large pores, and wrinkles. 

This procedure usually takes no more than 10 to 20 minutes. Depending on the extent of your treatment, recovery may take a few weeks. Side effects include some minor pain and swelling

More About Microneedling

Who is this treatment for?

Microneedling is suitable for most people and every skin tone and skin type. It is especially consistent for people with darker skin, as laser alternatives may inadvertently affect their skin’s pigmentation. 

People with keloid issues or eczema should refrain from this treatment. 

What are the expected results of this treatment? 

Clearer and tighter skin become apparent after 1 or 2 weeks, once it has fully healed. Expect continuous improvements over the next 1-2 months, as collagen production is enhanced. Best results usually require 4 to 6 treatments. 

Depending on how you take care of your skin and protect it from the sun, results can last anywhere from 3 to 5 months.
