Microneedling Q & A


Microneedling or also known as collagen induction therapy  is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenating procedure in which tiny needles create punctures in the top layer of skin with the goal of improving overall texture and appearance. It helps minimize the signs of aging, improves the appearance of acne scars and rejuvenates aging skin. Microneedling works with all skin types.

How does it work?

Using a device called dermaroller, tiny wounds are inflicted on the skin surface. The device slides along the skin and penetrates upper layers of the skin to a depth of up to 2mm to create tiny needle wounds. The body responds by producing collagen and elastin fibers which helps healing with rejuvenating new layer of skin. As a result, the skin becomes fuller, reducing the appearance of scars, lines, and wrinkles.

Benefits of Microneedling:

  • Works on any skin type
  • Very minimal downtime. Skin will be slightly reddish and swollen after the procedure, but usually returns back to normal complexion within 12-24 hours.
  • Very low chance of infection or scarring
  • Can be done on any body part
