For improving skin texture, minor scars and fine lines, microneedling is a treatment option that stimulates a healing response in the skin, leading to collagen growth and remodelling.
Typically a series of six treatments are performed 4 to 7 days apart to trigger and ramp up growth factor release within the skin. Although needle rollers have been used for a number of years, we prefer using electric microneedling pens for less discomfort, while precisely performing many more tiny pokes for a robust repair trigger. Pre-treatment skin preparation includes topical numbing cream, to allow for a near painless treatment experience. It’s typical for the skin to be flushed, along with minor discomfort afterwards, but it is short lived. Continual improvement can occur for months following a course of treatment. Often PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is combined with microneedling for a substantial boost in the end result.
