What are the facts on Microneedling?
- Microneedling is an anti-ageing treatment which uses a mechanical device with thin, surgical-grade needles to create micro-injuries in the skin’s surface.

Despite taking care of their skin with sun protection and a daily skincare regimen, many guys have unwanted photo-damage, fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.
Microneedling is able to target all of these concerns in a 30-minute session. It can be performed on the face, chest, neck, and other parts of the body. In addition, the procedure can penetrate to the deeper layers of the skin and repair acne scars, stretch marks, and surgical scars without the thermal damage or recovery associated with lasers.

How is the Microneedling Treatment like?
Microneedling is an anti-ageing treatment which uses a mechanical device with thin, surgical-grade needles to create micro-injuries in the skin’s surface. The body then responds by generating new collagen and elastin to fill these wounds. To stimulate even greater collagen production, the patient’s own platelet-rich plasma may be applied over these tiny punctures. Additionally, topical serums are delivered via the precisely-made holes to boost the wound healing effect and cellular rejuvenation.
What are the benefits of Microneedling?
- Microneedling is extremely effective for Acne Scars.
- A 2015 study of microneedling’s effect on atrophic acne scars revealed that patients experienced noticeable clinical improvement in the look of their post-acne scarring after three months of microneedling treatments. (Source3)
- Gliding tiny micro needles over the skin breaks down collagen bundles in the top layer of the dermis, which are responsible for those uneven scars.
- A retinol-based serum in this instance would provide additional exfoliating power to smoothen the acne scars.
- About 4 to 6 sessions with a gap of 2 to 4 weeks per session are required for the most effective acne scar removal.
Which are the target areas for Microneedling?
Microneedling is most often used on your face to target:

How quick can one see results from Microneedling?

The number of treatments recommended varies from person to person and depends on skin quality and specific concerns and goals. However, a series of three-to-six treatments is typically advised.
