Everything You Need to Know About Microneedling

Microneedling is an innovate cosmetic treatment for winding back the clock and revitalising your skin. Those who have tried microneedling notice their skin become more plump and smooth, with a reduction in wrinkles and smoother skin texture. It’s a simple procedure with a plethora of benefits, so here we’ve written up everything you need to know about microneedling.

How Microneedling Works

A microneedling treatment involves having a spherical device covered with extremely small needles rolled over your face or neck. This process creates controlled punctures that trigger your skin to immediately repair itself. Because of this, collagen is stimulated to regenerate skin tissue, leaving your skin looking refreshed and rejuvenated. If you’re scared of needles, know that the needles involved in micronedling can be as short as 0.5mm long. What’s more, they’re gentle enough to use around the delicate and sensitive skin surrounding the eyes. And to top it all off, the entire process usually takes only fifteen minutes.

Demapen Technology

If you’ve been thinking about microneedling for a while, you’ve likely heard of the infamous Dermapen. The Dermapen offers adjustable needle depth that allows unique control over the derma roller. As the roller is applied to the specified area of skin, the needling depth is adjusted to enable the Dermapen to effectively penetrate through to different layers of the skin. At Wellcare Medical Centre, Dermapen technology is readily available for all of our microneedling patients.

Additional Benefits of Microneedling

While microneedling has an impressive ability to improve the appearance of skin, it comes with a number of other lesser-known benefits. Microneedling can minimise the appearance of acne scars, surgical scars, abnormal pigmentation, large pores, fine lines and wrinkles. It’s also an effective treatment for dry skin.

What Happens After Your Treatment

The amazing thing about microneedling treatments is that they don’t require any downtime. In some patients, there may be some redness of the skin treated, but this will likely settle within a couple of days. All patients can return to their normal work/life activities immediately, and will begin to notice glowing skin straight after their first session. So if you have a special event coming up within the next week or so, a microneedling session is a no-fuss way of giving your skin some extra radiance.
