It is a dermaroller or dermapen procedure that uses small needles to prick the skin. The purpose of treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin.
Microneedling is mostly used on the face and may treat various scars, wrinkles, and large pores. Microneedling is one of the most popular skin rejuvenating treatments at the moment, and for good reason. Not only can it improve the look and feel of the skin, but it can also work wonders on reducing acne scars, lines and wrinkles.
What you’ll experiene at the doctor’s office is a more intense treatment than what you’ll get if you do it yourself at home (with a microneedle roller).
But for as much praise as the treatment gets, there are a few things to take note of, especially when it comes to what you’ll experience once the treatment is complete.
