What is Micro-

Medical micro-needling, also called collagen induction therapy, is a cosmetic treatment that uses a device with small needles to puncture the skin and stimulate collagen production.

This minimally invasive procedure creates controlled micro-injuries, which can help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, and other skin imperfections. This procedure is generally safe and effective.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How many sessions of Micro-needling do I need?

    The number of microneedling sessions needed will depend on various factors, including the specific skin concerns being addressed and the individual’s skin type and condition.

    Generally, a series of 3-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart is recommended to achieve optimal results. For mild skin concerns, such as fine lines and uneven skin texture, 3-4 sessions may be sufficient.

    For more significant concerns, such as acne scars or deep wrinkles, 4-6 sessions may be needed to see noticeable improvement.

  • What are the risks associated with Micro-needling?

    Microneedling is generally considered a safe procedure when performed by a qualified and experienced medical professional. However, as with any cosmetic procedure, there are potential risks and side effects to be aware of. These may include:

    1. Skin irritation: Some people may experience mild redness, swelling, and itching immediately after the procedure, which should resolve within a few days.
    2. Infection: Microneedling involves creating tiny punctures in the skin, which can increase the risk of infection if the procedure is not performed in a sterile environment or if proper aftercare is not followed.
    3. Scarring: Although rare, there is a risk of scarring with micro-needling, particularly if the skin is not properly prepped or if the needles are not properly sterilised.
    4. Hyperpigmentation: In rare cases, micro-needling can cause hyperpigmentation, which is the darkening of the skin in the treated area.
    5. Allergic reaction: Some people may be allergic to the topical products used during the procedure, such as numbing creams or serums.
  • Can I combine Micro-needling with Mesotherapy?

    Yes, micro-needling can be combined with mesotherapy to further enhance its benefits. Mesotherapy is a cosmetic procedure that involves injecting a combination of substances such as vitamins, amino acids and hyaluronic acid into the middle layer of the skin. It can rejuvenate and improve its texture and appearance. This minimally invasive technique can target specific areas of concern such as fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone.

  • When can I not have Micro-needling?

    Some certain conditions or circumstances may make someone ineligible for micro-needling or require extra precautions to be taken. These include:

    1. Active acne: Microneedling can potentially spread bacteria and worsen active acne, so it’s generally recommended to wait until the acne has cleared before undergoing micro needling.
    2. Skin infections or diseases: People with active skin infections or diseases, such as eczema or psoriasis, may be advised to avoid micro-needling, as it can potentially worsen these conditions.
    3. Blood clotting disorders: People with blood clotting disorders or who are taking blood thinners may be at increased risk of bleeding or bruising with micro-needling and may need to avoid the procedure.
    4. Keloid scarring: People with a history of keloid scarring may be at increased risk of developing keloids with micro-needling and may need to avoid the procedure.
    5. Pregnancy: Microneedling is generally not recommended for pregnant women due to the potential risk of infection and the lack of safety data in this population.
  • What precautions should I take after Micro-needling?

    After micro-needling, it’s important to take certain precautions to ensure proper healing and reduce the risk of complications. Some general guidelines include:

    1. Avoid sun exposure: Sun exposure can be especially harmful to the skin after micro-needling, so it’s important to avoid direct sun exposure and use broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 when going outside.
    2. Avoid makeup: It’s generally recommended to avoid wearing makeup for the first 24-48 hours after micro-needling to allow the skin to heal and prevent infection.
    3. Avoid hot water and steam: It’s important to avoid hot water, saunas, and steam rooms for the first 24-48 hours after micro-needling, as heat can increase inflammation and prolong healing.
    4. Keep the skin clean: It’s important to keep the skin clean after micro-needling to prevent infection. Use a gentle cleanser and avoid rubbing or scrubbing the skin.
    5. Moisturise: After micro-needling, the skin may feel dry and tight, so it’s important to use a gentle, hydrating moisturiser to help soothe and hydrate the skin.
    6. Avoid strenuous exercise: Strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least 24-48 hours after micro-needling to prevent sweating and irritation of the skin.

When can you Expect Results?

The results of micro-needling treatment can vary depending on several factors such as the severity of the skin concern being addressed, the number of sessions, and the individual’s skin type and condition. Typically, patients can expect to see some immediate results following their first treatment, such as improved skin texture and tone. However, the most significant results usually become visible after several sessions, spaced several weeks apart. The full benefits of micro-needling can take up to six months.
