Microneedling is used to rejuvenate, restore, and tighten the skin. It has been shown to help with wrinkles, fine lines and acne scarring. It’s meant to encourage collagen production in order to deliver a more youthful, plumper appearance. A topical numbing cream if first applied to your skin, so you shouldn’t feel much discomfort during the process. Then, small needles are used to create small channels or openings in the skin that will then heal quickly and cause collagen contraction in the skin. The first day after treatment, the skin will appear red. After that, skin should be mildly pink for one to two days and then you will begin to experience the benefits of microneedling—a smoother, more glowing complexion.
