What is Micro Needling?

Micro needling is a skin rejuvenation procedure used to improve the appearance of the skin.

As a less-invasive skin treatment, it involves no incisions or scarring.

Micro needling has been used to treat:

  • Sagging skin
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Redness
  • Dull skin
  • Eye bags
  • Facial aging
  • Premature aging
  • Minor sun damage

How Does Micro Needling Work?

Typically, the procedure is performed on an outpatient basis. 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 the procedure

  • 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 pain associated with micro needling. However, many describe it as incredibly mild and not dissimilar to the flick of a rubber band.

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.
