Microneedling has taken the beauty world over the last 10 years. Under the names dermaroller, microneedling or skin needling you will see these treatments listed in the services of nearly every fashionable beauty salon and day spa in the country.
Microneedling is the insertion of very fine and short needles into the skin usually to either increase collagen production in the skin or to increase transdermal absorption of cosmetic or medical applications. This is usually achieved through the use of rollers or stamps with up to 200 micro needles attached. The micro needles usually range in length from 0.5mm to 1.5mm.
Microneedling has been studied extensively as an alternative means of drug delivery for the pharmaceutical industry and a rapid way of inducing collagen production in both scarring and simple anti-aging treatments. For this reason, there has been a large body of research into its effectiveness. Some of the more interesting findings are:
1.An average 206% increase in collagen and up to 1,000% increase in collagen production after a single treatment.
2.A possible 140% increase in epidermal thickness.
3.An average 80% improvement in post burn scars with micro needling.
4.Microneedling can increase the absorption of some products through the skin by up to 10,000 time
Even the patients will experience thousands pricks on face, the procedure is guaranteed painless.
