Microneedling is one of the most recent therapies that is captivating the anti-aging industry by storm. Most people who have undergone this procedure are extremely happy with the results stating they have experienced thicker, glowing skin with beautiful tone and texture.
The procedure involves the use of fine needles to make very tiny punctures in your skin. This stimulates the production of collagen, which causes skin rejuvenation. Microneedling can be used to improve acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines, loose skin, pore size, stretch marks, and pigment issues.
Microneedling can be performed anywhere on the body where increased thickness of the skin is needed or where there are stretch marks. This could include the face, neck, chest, buttocks, and legs. About three to four sessions spaced a month apart should be sufficient to produce more youthful-appearing skin. As the growth of new collagen that tightens up the skin can take some time, the anti-aging effect of microneedling will usually become apparent anywhere between 3 months to a year.
When compared to other procedures such as laser therapy for skin conditions, microneedling is more cost effective and much safer as there is no risk of skin burning that could occur with laser treatment.
To achieve the desired results from this skin rejuvenating procedure, it is best to undergo microneedling by a well-trained and experienced physician. At One Skin Clinic, Dr Najia Shaikh combines skill and vast experience to perform microneedling and other innovative, state-of-the-art procedures such as the vampire facelift to produce the best aesthetic results.
However, microneedling is not for everyone. Having an active skin infection or hypersensitive skin may rule you out for this procedure. If you would like to know if you might benefit from this procedure, you are welcome to make an appointment with Dr Najia Shaikh.
