Microneedling For Stretch Marks

Microneedling is an excellent treatment for stretch marks. It is a treatment which resurfaces the skin without laser or surgery and minimal downtime. Microneedling is a procedure which involves using fine needles to create hundreds of tiny invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of the skin. These tiny puncture wounds trigger the body's natural healing response to heal these holes, in turn naturally producing collagen and elastin to tighten and improve the skins texture.

Microneedling is a great option for anyone who wants to rejuvenate the skin, diminish stretch marks and improve skin imperfections such as fine lines and wrinkles, and maintain a youthful appearance. It can be used on the face and body. The treatment involves little to no discomfort or downtime. Depending on your skin condition, multiple sessions may be required to achieve the desired response and may be combined with other anti-aging treatments.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is also called Collagen Induction Therapy. A small reciprocating micro-needle pen is used for this treatment. The microneedles make small punctures on the skin, and the body creates new collagen and elastin fibres as part of the healing process. The excess collagen and elastin cause the skin to plump and thicken, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scars.

Are you tired of fine lines and wrinkles making you look and feel older? Are you dealing with large pores, a poor skin texture, or sagging skin? Do you have acne scars on your face? If so, microneedling may be right for you.

Microneedling Recovery and Timeline
Patients go home right after the microneedling procedure. Most choose to take the day off work because the skin is a pinkish or reddish tone. However, patients can return to work the following day.
How Painful Is It to Get Microneedling?
A numbing cream is used before the microneedling procedure. The numbing agent makes the procedure comfortable for patients. However, it is normal to experience some discomfort after the procedure.
How Do I Take Care of My Skin After Microneedling?
Patients should not expose their skin to direct sunlight after undergoing a microneedling procedure. It’s critical to wear sunscreen when going outside after microneedling. Those who undergo microneedling to treat acne scars should use a gentle cleanser every morning and night.
