Microneedling stimulates collagen production and causes skin rejuvenation by puncturing the skin with small needles. This process is minimally invasive and fine needles prick your skin up to 2mm deep, leaving small wounds behind. The formed surface wounds trigger the body to start healing mode and boost the production of skin-repairing collagen and elastin. Automated Microneedling is an innovation in treating the skin imperfections such as fine lines, and acne scars, as well as improvement of the skin’s texture, tone, and color.
The skin’s repair process after Microneedling treatment results in a thicker epidermis with a softer appearance of wrinkles. Besides, Microneedle creates micro-channels on the skin that allow creams, topical gels, and serums to be absorbed more effectively, enhancing the effects in deeper layers of the skin. Microneedling can be used on all parts of the body including the face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back.

Skin Peeling After Microneedling
Soon after the treatment, you may experience a temporary bright redness on your skin. Total healing time depends on which pen are used and the number of passes completed by your skin-care professional.
It is normal to experience skin peel after Microneedling treatments within a few days. Microneedling creates a large number of tiny wounds on the skin. The body’s normal healing process after the treatment produces collagen to repair wounded skin and form a new skin layer. During the healing process, a new layer of skin forms, and as the result, the old skin peels off. The new skin will look youthful with a glowing look and feel.
Utilizing appropriate post-treatment products can speed the healing process. Here are some post-treatment care notes:
- At least 6 hours should pass without touching your face; sweaty exercise and sun exposure must be limited until
- 72 hours post-procedure; washing of your face post-treatment is also discouraged, although hyaluronic acid applications may be applied after 6 hours if skin feels tight or dry;
- change pillowcase on day of treatment and wipe phones/glasses down with alcohol to clean.
- Apply a sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher the next day after washing your face for best results.
- Should any concerns arise following treatment, contact your health care provider immediately.
