Microneedling is a non-surgical procedure designed to stimulate collagen production by gently
puncturing the skin’s surface using tiny needles. The treatment offers various benefits
like reducing fine lines and wrinkles, improving skin tone, age-related spots, acne,
minimizing pore size, enhancing skin firmness, diminishing scars, addressing stretch marks and
even promoting hair growth.
The procedure involves the precise insertion of fine, short needles into the skin to promote
rejuvenation. The concept is straightforward: by creating small wounds, the skin naturally
responds by generating collagen and producing new skin cells. The extent of needle penetration
determines the degree of skin rejuvenation, ranging from enhancing the absorption of skincare
products to clinically treating scars and wrinkles.
While some gradual improvements may be noticeable after the initial treatment, it typically
takes a minimum of four sessions to see significant changes. Each treatment session builds
upon the previous ones, leading to more pronounced and lasting results.
What is Nanoneedling?
Nanoneedling is similar to Microneedling, but instead of regular needles, it uses 81 tiny silicone
tips that look like very small, hair-like cones. These little cones gently separate the skin cells on
the top layer of your skin to help special skincare products get in. This treatment only affects
the very top part of your skin, about as thin as a few sheets of paper. It can make your skin
absorb up to 97% of the products you put on it.
Treatment benefits include reduction of pigmentation problems and faster renewal of skin,
giving your skin a nice shine right away. This treatment can be done once a week to help
remove dead skin cells. It can even be used on delicate areas like your upper lips and the area
around your eyes.
Why Microneedling from an Acupuncturist?
Getting microneedling from an acupuncturist can offer unique advantages.
Acupuncturists often have a holistic perspective on health and wellness, offering a
combination of microneedling and traditional Chinese medicine techniques to address both
your skin concerns as well as potential underlying imbalances in the body.
