The procedure of micro-needling is a cosmetic one. The process involves stabbing the skin with sterilised needles. As a result of the minor wounds, your body produces collagen and elastin, which help you heal your skin and look younger. It is also known as collagen induction therapy.

Benefits of Micro-Needling

Micro-needling may help with issues such as:

  • The acne problem

  • Hair loss (also known as alopecia)

  • Pigmentation of the skin (hyperpigmentation)

  • Pores with large sizes

  • A reduction in skin elasticity

  • Scars

  • Sun damage

  • Stretch marks

  • Fine lines and wrinkles

Micro-needling treatment is less expensive than laser treatment, costing up to four times more. People with darker skin tones may benefit from micro-needling because it does not involve heat like laser treatment, which can affect your skin's pigmentation.

Doctors who specialise in skin care or skin disorders can perform micro-needling. Aestheticians also complete it. Whenever you try it somewhere other than a doctor's office, ensure the person has experience and credentials and that every piece of equipment is sterilised before you begin. You can make your micro-needling device. Nevertheless, dermatologists warn against using them because you may accidentally injure your skin, and you may not be able to sterilise them.

In most cases, the procedure takes between 10 and 20 minutes, depending on the size of the area. It usually takes 4-6 treatments for people to see results.

The first step will be to apply numbing cream to your face so that you do not feel any needle pricks. Afterwards, the person performing micro-needling will roll or pen-shaped tool with tiny needles around your face. During the procedure, the hands make minor cuts in the skin, which cause a bit of bleeding. After that, your doctor may apply a cream or serum to your face.

Use collagen and elastin to patch up slight injuries to start your body's healing process. The collagen in our bodies helps fill in wrinkles and smooth them out.

The most common area for micro-needling is the face, but you can also do it on other body parts, such as the stomach or thighs.

Microneedling Risks

Before you decide to try it, consider the following:

  • There is no quick fix for it

Observing a difference takes time. You're healing yourself because your body is doing so. The majority of people need several treatments before they see any improvement.

  • Healing time

Depending on the depth of the needle piercing, healing may take days or weeks.

  • Redness and pain

You may experience minor skin pain and redness a few days after the procedure.

  • Peeling

While it heals, your skin may feel tight and flake a little.

  • Bruising and bleeding

Microneedling usually doesn't cause bleeding. Microneedling deep into the skin may cause bruising or bleeding.

  • Possible scarring

If you have keloids, which look like large bubbles on your skin, micro-needling is not for you. There is a possibility that it will worsen the condition.

  • Infection

A micro-needling procedure creates tiny holes in the skin, which could allow germs to enter, mainly if the equipment isn't properly cleaned. However, there is minimal risk of infection. Infections from micro-needling are unlikely if you're healthy.

Insurance does not cover micro-needling because it is a cosmetic procedure. If you need several treatments, your doctor will tell you how much they will cost. To know more, visit Manipal Hospitals by booking an appointment.
