How Microneedling works
Microneedling is based on the use of tiny needles to create micro channels in the skin. The will enhance the skin’s natural ability to heal itself and stimulate the process that produces collagen and elastin. This repair process results in a thicker dermis, and softened wrinkles or scars. The process is considered non-invasive, and the small channels in the skin closes very quickly. The skin begins a healing response right away. Depending on the depth of the skin defect, you may see only redness or you may experience some pinpoint bleeding which stops almost immediately.
After the procedure, your skin will likely feel warm and tight. Typically, the healing time depends upon the severity of the skin damage, and the depth of the procedure. Commonly, there is some redness that resembles mild sunburn. This redness could last for 2-4 days, although some patients report that the redness dissipated within 24 hours. In some cases, there will be some minor bleeding and in rare cases, some mild bruising. As with most procedures, older patients, and those who have naturally more sensitive skin may take longer to fully recover.
