Benefits of Microneedling & side effects

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a procedure carried out in a clinic via local anaesthesia and a device called a derma roller. A microneedling Derma roller is a cylinder covered with tiny needles made of steel, which is moved in different directions on patients’ skin by the therapist. Normally after the procedure, a microneedling serum including materials such as vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, etc. is administered to the skin. This serum has a positive impact on accelerating the process of generating collagen and elastin. 

This procedure creates numerous small punctures on the skin. The depths of these punctures depend on the length of the needles of the microneedling derma roller, which can be anything from 0.5 to 2 mm. These wounds are healed within 2 to 3 days without causing any problems.

This therapeutic procedure induces fibroblast cells to generate new collagen. This is why, microneedling is alternatively called collagen induction therapy (CIT) as well. 

Microneedling is one of thea skin rejuvenating method that dates back to 50 years ago.

Derma roller is the simplest microneedling device that is used for manual operations. This device contains more than 200 mini needles attached to its roller. In the course of treatment, the therapist presses the handle and places it on the skin surface.

In some cases, the derma roller is regarded as a home remedy. However, a lack of experience in using this device can cause serious damage to the skin.
