What are microneedling benefits? Microneedling is used for anti-aging, skin tightening, hair loss, large pores, scars, stretch marks, acne, sun damage, reduced skin elasticity, dark spots, and more!
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a non-invasive cosmetic skincare procedure done at our clinic for anti-aging purposes. The treatment involves puncturing the skin with tiny microscopic needles to create thousands of invisible wounds. These small micro wounds causes your body to make more elastin and collagen, which heals the skin to create an anti-aging effect.
What is Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT)?
Another name for microneedling, dermarolling, or skin needling is called collagen induction therapy.
As the name implies, collagen is the primary protein found everywhere in the body that is responsible for cell structure, including your skin. CIT increases collagen production, which helps with anti-aging, scars, and hair loss.

PRP + MICRONEEDLING benefits
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can be combined with microneedling treatment in a form of dermatologic autologous blood therapy. PRP comes from your own blood and contains growth factors that increase collagen production. It can be applied topically to the entire treatment area during and after microneedling treatments or injected to scars and scalp.
Vampire Facial: Microneedling with PRP done on the face to promote collagen production is called a vampire facial. This term vampire facial was made famous by Kim Kardashian in 2013. This term was invented because it involves drawing your own blood and extracting the plasma from the blood and re-introducing the plasma back into the skin.

Who Is Suitable For Microneedling?
If your body’s collagen production is in the decline, then you are a suitable candidate for microneedling. If your skin is becomming thinner, looser, and less elastic, then microneedling can help rebuild your collagen and help get back your toner, more even, and plumper skin. If you are starting to lose your hair, then microneedling with or without PRP can help with your hair regrowth. If you are suffering from acne scars, stretch marks, or other types of scars, microneedling can help even out the scars to make them less noticeable and smoother.
Microneedling Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles
This is an excellent anti-aging treatment if you want to diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Collagen production decreases with age. The skin becomes thinner, drier, and less elastic, contributing to skin wrinkling and sagging. The micro wounds created by the tiny needles stimulates elastin and collagen production which causes your skin to become plumper, firmer, and youthful more looking.
Microneedling Promotes Hair Regrowth
The purpose of microneedling for hair loss is to stimulate dermal papilla, or the stem cells in hair follicles, to encourage growth factors. The micro wounds of microneedling stimulates the healing process which helps promote hair regrowth, increase hair density and thickness, and reverse thinning hair. Microneedling is an effective standalone therapy, but bombined with (PRP) platelet-rich plasma, the effects and outcome of microneedling for hair loss are even better.
Microneedling Diminishes Scars and Stretch Marks
A scar is a mark left on the skin after a wound or injury has healed. Most will fade although they never completely disappear. Dermatologists recommend microneedling for scars. This procedure works for thermal burns, surgery scars, acne scars, and stretch marks. Microneedling promotes the formation of new skin cells and accelerates healing. At the same time, microneedling breaks down old scar tissue. For stretch marks it can take up to six sessions to reduce them and make them blend with the surrounding skin.
Microneedling Decreases Size of Pores
Pore size is mostly genetic, but other factors may also come into play. The most common causes of large pores are high sebum secretion and decreased skin elasticity. Once collagen begins to build and increase in the area of the microneedling treatment, it smooths and tightens the skin, increases skin elasticity, which makes the pores smaller.
Microneedling Helps Treat Acne
Microneedling can help treat acne scars by promoting the growth of new skin cells, but it can also stop active acne from forming by reducing the production of sebum, which makes your skin oily. Reducing sebum production ultimately leads to fewer blackheads and whiteheads, as well as chronic cystic acne.
MICRONEEDLING FOR STRETCH MARKS
Microneedling benefits include stretch marks revision. Microneedling is great for stretch marks. But we offer RF Microneedling, or Radiofrequency Microneedling which makes the stretch marks treatment even better.
WHAT DO YOU PUT ON YOUR SKIN AFTER MICRONEEDLING?
We use a prioritory blend of Vitamin C and E, Jojoba oil, and 2% retinyl ester during and after your microneedling treatment. By using this seurm after microneedling, it hydrates and replenish the skin. This blend of active ingredients makes it a perfect scar treatment oil as it works together to improve the appearance of old and new scars, stretch marks, acne scars and other areas of skin discolouration. Vitamin C in the form of Ascorbyl Isostearate brightens skin while fighting acne bacteria to prevent new spots and scars from forming. Vitamin C has been shown to inhibit the generation of melanin and accelerate the synthesis of collagen. Jojoba oil and squalane work to soften dry, rough or flaky skin, without blocking pores. This powerful Retin-C Vitamin Oil blend revives and regenerates your skin while encouraging natural cell renewal for a youthful and radiant complexion. It is ideal for discoloured and scarred areas on the face and body, where increased cell turnover helps to improve and even out the complexion. This potent oil actively nourishes your skin, but has a light and dry texture so it absorbs completely into the skin, providing a perfect base for moisturiser or makeup.
