What Is Medical Microneedling?
Medical micro-needling is also called skin needling or collagen induction therapy. It is a minimally-invasive
non-surgical and nonablative procedure for facial rejuvenation that involves the use of a micro-needling
device to create controlled skin injury. As each fine needle punctures the skin, it creates a channel or
micro-wound. The controlled injury triggers the body to fill these micro-wounds by producing new collagen and elastin. In addition, new blood vessels are formed. The production of new collagen and
blood vessels following the treatment lead to a reduction of scars and skin rejuvenation, with improved skin texture, firmness and hydration.
Why Is Medical Microneedling Is Right For You?
As we age we develop fine lines, wrinkles and changes to our skin tone and texture. Micro-needling triggers the body's natural repair mechanism by stimulating collagen and elastin at the site of treatment. This collagen and elastin smoothes wrinkles and fine lines from the inside out, restoring youthful skin naturally.
In a medically supervised setting, the procedure is generally considered safe, well tolerated and deemed suitable for thin and sensitive skin.

What To Expect With Medical Microneedling:
The procedure is generally well tolerated. It takes a few minutes up to an hour to complete, depending on the area to be treated and the severity of the problem.
The medical professional applies a numbing cream (topical) on the treatment area.
The skin is punctured in a specific pattern using a skin needling device. The device is moved over the skin multiple times for best results.
As each fine needle punctures the skin, it creates a channel or micro-wound stimulating skin cell regeneration.
The patient can resume regular activities within a few days, depending on the depth of penetration of the needles.
