5 Amazing Facts You Should Know About Microneedling

Last Modified: April 4, 2024

Scientific studies have proven time and time again the wide range of benefits that microneedling provides. 

You might have heard of this new skincare trend, but what is microneedling?

Microneedling is a treatment where a tool called a Dermaroller is used to boost collagen production in the skin. It does this by lightly puncturing the skin with several small needles, encouraging the skin to undergo a special healing process. 

This anti-ageing facial treatment makes skin look younger and healthier in almost no time at all. 

If you're trying to decide if a microneedling procedure is right for you, read on for 5 need-to-know facts about Microneedling. 

1. It Doesn't Hurt

The first thing you probably think about when you hear about microneedling is the pain of having all those needles puncture your skin. 

The truth is that the pain is more of a subtle prick and minimal at most. The procedure begins with a pain-numbing cream that removes this small sensation. 

After the microneedling treatment, your skin will just be a little pink and sensitive for a short amount of time. 

2. It Removes Imperfections

While microneedling is widely recognized for its age-rewinding effects, it removes a host of other skin imperfections as well. 

These include scars, from acne scarring to stretch marks, and even cellulite. 

This is because the microneedling procedure increases collagen in your skin by a stunning 400%.

3. It's Not Just For Your Face

Microneedling is often discussed as a facial treatment, but it can be used anywhere on your body.

No matter where you have stretch marks, sagging or scarring on your neck, from your legs to your chest, Microneedling can help. 

4. Professional is the Way to Go

As the microneedling trend has picked up in popularity, several DIY and at-home derma rollers have become available. 

The derma rollers in stores, however, have fewer and smaller needles. This, on top of the lack of expertise, means that the small amount of benefit provided is nothing compared to that of an expert. This is especially the case if you're trying to reduce scarring or a skin condition. 

It's also possible for someone to accidentally over-use their at-home derma roller. This can cause a range of issues. 

For all of these reasons and more, it's suggested that you stick with using a microneedling specialist. 

5. How Often Should You Get it Done 

How often you get microneedling done depends on your skin condition and goals. 

If you have fairly decent skin and just want some age-rewind, then you can go every 3-6 months.

For someone with scarring or a skin condition, once a month for 4 months is recommended. After that, checkups are less frequent.
