What is Micro Needling?
Micro needling is a skin rejuvenation procedure. Like all skin rejuvenation procedures, it is used to improve the appearance of the skin.
As a less-invasive skin treatment, micro needling involves no incisions or scarring and is sometimes combined with other aesthetic procedures.
Micro needling has been used to treat:
- Sagging skin
- Fine lines
- Dull skin
- Eye bags
- Facial aging
- Premature aging
- Sun-damaged skin
Micro needling is typically performed with a small hand piece. This micro needling tool can come in the form of a roller or an automated pen. Home micro needling kits are available, but like any home aesthetics procedure, they are very dangerous to use.
How Does Micro Needling Work?
Typically, micro needling is performed as an outpatient procedure that takes just a few minutes to complete. Micro needling works by activating the skin's natural healing processes. This is done with hundreds of tiny needles, which is how the procedure receives its name.
During micro needling:
- A skin analysis is performed to determine if the procedure is a good match.
- Using either a manual roller or an automated pen, the needles are quickly moved around the skin.
- This creates thousands of tiny punctures in the skin.
- After the procedure is complete, the punctures activate the skin's natural healing abilities.
- By self-healing, the skin becomes more supple, smooth and youthful.
Micro needling can be used on any skin, but is most commonly used on the face. It's important to understand that there is some discomfort associated with micro needling; however, the pain is typically describe as mild. Micro needling can be combined with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy for greater efficacy.
Ultimately, micro needling is a procedure that has many aesthetic applications. While there is no "magic button" to eliminate the effects of aging, micro needling can drastically improve facial skin appearance.
