Micro-needling is an increasingly popular type of treatment that’s used to correct a number of common skin conditions and improve the tone of the skin overall. Micro-needling induces the production of collagen in the body without damaging the top layer of skin, which makes it ideal for use on the face.

Below are some of the main skin conditions that micro-needling can be used to treat.

What can Micro-needling be used to treat?

  • Eliminate fine lines and wrinkles –
    Lines and wrinkles on the face are a natural part of the aging process but something that a lot of people want to get rid of. Micro-needling is very effective for treating fine lines and wrinkles since it causes the body to produce collagen and elastin, which help to provide more fullness to the face and smooth out unwanted lines and wrinkles.
  • Scars –
    Micro-needling is also a very effective way to treat a variety of scars, including stretch marks, surgical scars and acne scars. The reason that Micro-needling is effective at treating scars is because it replaces the abnormal formation of collagen that’s produced when a scar is formed with new collagen that resembles healthy skin.
  • Acne –
    Acne is a very common skin condition that can severely affect a person’s self-esteem. Micro-needling can be used to treat acne although you must be careful to use the right sized needles and also be sure to roll around any blemishes rather than on top of them since it can cause the spread of bacteria if done incorrectly.
  • Rosacea –
    Rosacea is redness in the face that can be caused by a number of different factors, including food, temperature changes and exposure to sunlight. Micro-needling can help with Rosacea by increasing collagen production, which helps to clear the redness.
  • Age spots –
    Micro-needling can help with age spots by shedding the top layer of skin, which reduces their appearance. It also helps to improve the absorption of any topical products you use to treat age spots.
  • Stretch marks –
    Stretch marks are a very common side effect of pregnancy and weight loss. As the skin stretches beyond its natural capacity, scars begin to form, which can be very difficult to get rid of. Micro-needling is very effective at treating stretch marks thanks to its unique ability to induce collagen and elastin in the body.
