Does Skin Look Worse After Microneedling?

What is Microneedling?

The use of microneedles for skin treatments is not a new concept. In fact, it is reported that the ancient Egyptians were using sharpened stones to achieve similar results. More recently, the use of microneedles for skin treatments has seen a resurgence in popularity, due to the advent of more sophisticated technologies and an increased understanding of the physiology of the skin.

Microneedling is a treatment that uses tiny needles to create controlled injuries to the skin. This stimulates the body’s natural healing process and promotes the production of collagen and elastin. The result is younger-looking skin with improved texture and reduced wrinkles.

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves the use of a device with multiple fine needles to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin. This boosts the natural healing process of the skin and increases collagen production by the body.

Microneedling can be used to improve the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and stretch marks, as well as to enhance the results of other treatments such as laser resurfacing and chemical peels.
