FAQ's

What is Microneedling?

For skin micro-needling, we use an electric skin needling device made especially for this purpose. The device is a pen-shaped studded with very fine needles. It is a medical device used in micro needling to break down old scar tissue and to stimulate skin cells to proliferate. This cell multiplication results in the formation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers as well as in new capillaries for an improved blood supply.

What conditions can be treated or improved with microneedling?

  • Mild to moderate acne scarring; any new or old scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles;
  • Loose, lax skin;
  • Skin texture and pore size
  • Stretch marks

How does Medical microneedling work?

  • The device slides along the skin, penetrating the upper layers of the skin to create numerous tiny needle wounds. The procedure prompts the body to respond to the creation of new collagen and elastin fibers. In response to the stimulus, the skin plumps and thickens, reducing the appearance of scars, and fine lines and wrinkles.

What is the downtime after treatment?

  • The device slides along the skin, penetrating the upper layers of the skin to create numerous tiny needle wounds. The procedure prompts the body to respond to the creation of new collagen and elastin fibers. In response to the stimulus, the skin plumps and thickens, reducing the appearance of scars, and fine lines and wrinkles.

What are the benefits of Medical microneedling?

  • Improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of wrinkles
  • Stimulates tissue regeneration
  • Disfiguring scars, especially acne scars can be improved as new collagen fibers elevate the depressed scar tissue with the periphery skin
  • Pore size reduction
  • Improves the appearance of stretch marks

Can microneedling be performed on any skin color?

  • Medical Micro-needling is safe to use on all skin types and all skin colors. There is no risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
