Microneedling is a relatively new skincare procedure that uses fine needles to create microscopic punctures in the outer layer of the skin. As those tiny holes heal, skin is naturally tightened and the production of collagen and elastin gets a boost – resulting in overall skin rejuvenation.
Since the epidermis is not damaged during the procedure, it is also safe for all skin types and colors. With short-term results like a rosier, plumper, more luminous complexion taking hold almost immediately and long-term benefits including increased collagen and elastin production, microneedling is a wonderful option for those looking to improve the texture and appearance of the skin with a non-invasive treatment. Microneedling involves minimal discomfort and requires little downtime. Common side effects – such as mild redness and swelling – are similar to those of a mild sunburn.
