We all want perfect skin. However, not everyone is blessed with great skin genes. For others, they’ve experienced horrible pubescent acne that has left marks and scars even up to their adulthood. Fortunately, cosmetic procedures such as microneedling can greatly improve your complexion.

Microneedling is an excellent option for laser skin resurfacing because it improves fine lines, acne scars, wrinkles, trauma, skin volume loss and the colour and tone of your skin. This procedure is minimally invasive and has a short recovery period. Read on as we discuss more about microneedling and its positive effect on your complexion.

What Exactly Is Microneedling?

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction, creates microscopic wounds on your skin to stimulate your body’s collagen and elastin production. These primary ingredients keep your skin firm, clear and wrinkle-free, as well as aid in the healing of your skin. As you enter your mid-20s, your body produces about 1 percent less collagen per year. As a result, your skin’s aging process goes downhill beyond this point.

When collagen and elastin are stimulated, they correct the defects you want to correct. In addition, microneedling can help with issues such as acne cicatrices, premature fine lines and wrinkles, trauma cicatrices, loss of skin volume and skin discolouration.

How Can I Improve the Colour of My Skin?

In addition to stimulating collagen and elastin production, the micro-needle creates small canals that allow topical gels, creams and serums to penetrate deeper into your skin and be more effectively absorbed.

The Microneedling Technique

To give you a clear picture, we will walk you through the microneedling technique.

First, a cosmetic professional or their assisting nurse will apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area. They will also explain to you the ingredients in the cream before beginning your microneedling procedure. Second, after one hour, a microneedling device will be applied to your face area by area. And in as quick as 45 minutes, your first appointment will be done.

Afterwards, expect to experience mild redness immediately till at least up to 3 days, but keep in mind that no downtime is required. Moreover, a series of three treatments spaced about a month apart is ideal. Severe discolouration may necessitate six to eight appointments.

It is advisable to stay indoors after each session to allow your skin to breathe and recover fast.


Think of your skin as one of your best investments.
