What is microneedling?

Microneedling, also referred to as skin needling or collagen induction therapy, is a treatment involving small needles that create tiny punctures in the skin. These tiny contact points stimulate the body’s natural wound healing response, prompting the renewal of skin cells. As the skin undergoes repair, the production of collagen and elastin is activated, resulting in a plumping effect. Additionally, microneedling can also address various skin concerns such as scarring, dark marks, sun damage, and signs of aging.

What can microneedling treat?

Microneedling is an excellent treatment option, particularly in patients with skin of colour, as it avoids using peels or lasers that may lead to pigmentation issues. Microneedling can be used to treat concerns on both the face and body.  Microneedling is a great treatment option for the following skin concerns:

Rejuvenate tired and dull looking skin to address the early signs of ageing.

Visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the face by stimulating collagen production through microneedling.

Improve the appearance of scars from acne and chickenpox, while also smoothing out uneven skin texture and pores.

Fade dark marks, such as pigmentation caused by acne, sun damage or aging.

Types of microneedling treatments

Our doctors at Dr.Derme, will help you determine the best microneedling treatment for your concerns:

Dermaroller

Dermaroller is a titanium device rolled over the skin, that generates thousands of tiny contact points, initiating the body’s wound healing process for brighter, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin. Particularly beneficial for clients requiring treatment over larger areas.

Microneedling

Using a pen with an electronic mechanism featuring short needles, this method targets the top layers of the skin, delivering a rejuvenating effect. The lower intensity of this treatment results in minimal downtime compared to deeper procedures, yet it still achieves a youthful complexion.

Medical needling

Our doctors use a needling pen to reach greater depths to treat your specific concerns including scarring and deeper lines. A solution containing hyaluronic acid, minerals, vitamins, and peptides is applied to the skin, stimulating cell proliferation, reducing skin contours, and enhancing elasticity.
