(What is it? & How does it work?)

Micro-needling, also known as collagen induction therapy, has emerged as a popular dermatological treatment for addressing a myriad of skin concerns in a minimally invasive manner. This innovative procedure involves the use of a device equipped with tiny needles that create microscopic punctures in the skin's surface. By puncturing the skin, these needles penetrate the dermis, triggering the skin's natural healing process. The creation of small wounds stimulates collagen production, which is essential for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness, ultimately leading to improved skin tone, texture, and volume restoration.

One of the remarkable aspects of micro-needling is its versatility in treating various skin issues, including acne scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and hyperpigmentation. By inducing micro-injuries, micro-needling prompts the skin to heal itself, resulting in the reduction of scars, fine lines, and uneven skin tone. Additionally, micro-needling can effectively treat minor skin problems and calm conditions like rosacea, making it suitable for a wide range of individuals seeking skin rejuvenation.

Micro-needling can yield even more impressive results when paired with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment. PRP involves extracting a patient's own blood, separating the platelets, and then re-injecting the concentrated platelet-rich plasma into the skin. When combined with micro-needling, PRP enhances the healing process and boosts collagen production, leading to faster recovery times and even more dramatic improvements in skin texture and appearance.

While micro-needling offers amazing benefits, it's essential to note that optimal results typically require multiple sessions spaced apart to achieve the desired outcome, especially for treating conditions like melasma and deep scars. However, the gradual improvement and long-lasting results make micro-needling a worthwhile investment for individuals looking to rejuvenate their skin and address specific concerns without undergoing invasive procedures.
