Microneedling Treatment

Microneedling Treatment in Bangalore

Microneedling is a type of Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) or skin needling or percutaneous collagen induction. It is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that creates controlled injuries underneath the skin’s surface with tiny, sterile needles that induce the body to respond through the formation of new tissue. It is a popularly performed anti-aging procedure and the goal of microneedling treatment is to stimulate new collagen and elastin production to make the skin smoother, firmer, toned, and younger-looking. By stimulating collagen production, this treatment is also used to treat various skin problems. In addition to stimulation of collagen, the small micro-channels made using the microneedling treatment help the topical formulation and creams to be absorbed more effectively through the top layer of skin and offer more promising results. 


Charma Clinic is one the best skin cosmetic clinics in Bangalore especially for skin rejuvenation treatments like microneedling and lasers. 

Microneedling is an effective treatment in addressing various skin and hair concerns. It helps improve overall appearance - skin texture and tone by rejuvenating the skin. This treatment also has the ability to treat hair loss more effectively when combined with other hair loss treatments such as minoxidil and growth factor treatment. The treatment procedure utilizes the production of skin repair proteins and the growth factors that are obtained from the patient's blood to trigger the growth of hair from miniaturized hair follicles that enables natural hair growth processes.


Microneedling treatment can help with a variety of skin concerns such as

  • Acne scars.
  • Fine lines.
  • Wrinkles.
  • Enlarged pores.
  • Hyperpigmentation. 
  • Sunspots.
  • Lost elasticity.
  • Stretch marks.
  • Uneven skin tone.
  • Uneven skin texture.


How does microneedling work?

Microneedling treatment involves puncturing the skin with the help of a handheld instrument, a dermaroller /dermapen with tiny needles which create superficial micro-injuries in the skin, break old collagen strands, and induce new collagen synthesis. 


The aim for the micro-injuries in the upper dermis caused by the needles is to trigger a wound-healing cascade that involves the influx of numerous growth factors into the area of treatment. This, in turn, increases the invasion of fibroblasts producing collagen, elastin, and other healing factors. Collagen helps keep the skin looking youthful, with a firm and smooth texture. The newly laid collagen and elastin make the skin smoother, firmer, and more toned, over a period of time.


The treatment can be performed with the help of different types of instruments like

  1. Dermaroller - Device made up of plastic with a handle that holds a drum-shaped cylinder with needles at the end.
  2. Derma stamp - Derma stamp is a miniaturized version of dermaroller like a stamp.
  3. Derma pen - Derma pen is like a motorized instrument in which cartridges of needles need to be attached. The needle length is adjustable.
  4. RF Microneedling - It is an advanced form of microneedling as the radiofrequency energy further boosts the results of microneedling. In this procedure, RF energy is delivered deep into the dermal layers which results in tissue tightening and improved collagen and elastin production. This technique is especially helpful when the patient also wants to address various signs of aging. Many people ask about the safety of this procedure. Radiofrequency has been in use for many decades for various medical and cosmetic treatments. So, one can rest assured of the safety profile of this procedure. 
  5. Microneedling with growth factors: Microneedling is often combined with growth factors to optimize the results. The growth factors are special skin repair proteins that are derived from the patient’s own blood that help increase collagen production. It can be applied topically to the entire treatment area during and after the microneedling treatment or injected intradermally for scars.
    The growth factors treatment is found to improve the overall appearance and health of the skin. Increasing age, pollution, smoking, and UV exposure start taking a toll on the skin which causes it to lose its elasticity and glow. The growth factor is applied to the upper skin layer after microneedling and they can help reverse the signs of aging in the skin by eliminating or improving the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin.

    Growth factors can lead to stimulation of the rejuvenation process in the aged skin through the secretion of collagen and elastin of the extracellular skin matrix. The growth factors have the two main action mechanisms through which it aids healing:
    (a) It augments the reconstruction and regeneration of damaged and injured tissue
    (b) It nurtures and facilitates other cells to undergo self-healing and regeneration.

    Using microneedling with growth factors makes it a powerful treatment for targeting minor skin concerns like minimizing pores, scars, acne, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and melasma. This procedure utilizes growth factors derived from the patient's own blood.


The best thing about microneedling treatment is that it is a cost-effective and promising skin rejuvenation treatment. To know about microneedling cost in Bangalore, consult with the skin experts at Charma Clinic.


The ideal candidate for microneedling
Microneedling can be safely performed in any individual of any skin color. The success of microneedling depends largely on the health of the candidate so the candidates must be in good overall health and are not suffering from any type of blood disorders, skin issues, and diabetes as these conditions can cause hair loss to continue. 


Want to know if you are an ideal candidate for this treatment, schedule a consultation with the best skin doctor in Bangalore at Charma Clinic.


On the other hand, microneedling is not recommended for the individual with

  • Keloid scars.
  • Psoriasis and other chronic conditions.
  • Scleroderma, collagen vascular diseases, or fungal infection.
  • Immunosuppressed.
  • Pregnant or nursing.
  • History of severe eczema.


How is the procedure done?

The doctors use a microneedling device on the forehead, cheeks, and other parts of the face to make sure the growth factors and skin repair proteins are able to travel deep into the skin.
Microneedling helps to stimulate collagen production, when used alongside an infusion of growth factors, a double effect of collagen-boosting is produced.


When it is over, the patient might notice a bit of superficial pain on the face and minor bruising from the microneedling technique.


Once the procedure is finished, the doctor may apply a serum or balm to help soothe any redness and irritation.


The procedure is normally completed within 30-60 minutes, depending on the required treatment. After the procedure, the skin starts to rejuvenate the tissue and the results should be noticed within a few weeks. Improvement in skin texture and skin tone is the first change one can notice after the treatment. Microneedling involves the growth of new skin, so it is important to realize that this treatment is not a quick fix. It can take several months for an individual to see the full results of the treatment.


What can I expect after the procedure?

After the procedure, the skin will be red and flushed in appearance in a similar way to moderate sunburn, which is normal. The inflammation of the skin is temporary and reduces within a few hours. The skin might remain slightly pinkish for about 1-2 days and doctors recommended using skin-soothing serums and hyaluronic acid that help reduce redness, inflammation. Patients may also experience skin tightness and mild sensitivity to touch on the area being treated. The surface of the skin feels more normal within 24 hours. The skin is often healed and normal appearance fully restored within 3-4 days. It is mandatory to avoid sun exposure and sweaty activity for the first 2-3 days. The patient must apply sunscreen to protect the skin from sun rays and use should be limited.


How many sessions will I need to see results?

Multiple sessions are required, spaced one month apart to maintain the results. Since the skin becomes thicker and more able to withstand a deeper penetration over time, needles will be inserted deeper into the skin at each following session. Also the number of sessions will vary depending on what skin condition is being treated with microneedling. Conditions like acne scars take several months to years to improve while skin rejuvenation may require just 3 to 4 sessions.

Benefits of Microneedling treatment

Microneedling is an excellent way to stimulate new collagen synthesis with minimal risks and side effects. Collagen and elastin add structure and strength to the skin that leads to a youthful quality. Both these proteins combat wrinkles and this treatment causes the skin to produce more collagen and elastin. The wound-healing mechanisms activated by this treatment stimulate the body to produce new skin cells, and this offers anti-aging benefits and makes the fine lines, crow’s feet, and wrinkles less apparent. As microneedling stimulates collagen and elastin production, it is very much effective in treating a wide variety of skin conditions including acne scars, linear atrophic scars, surgical scars, fine lines, and open pores. To avail collagen induction treatment benefits schedule an appointment at Charma Clinic.

  • Microneedling is a new way to achieve skin rejuvenation. Microneedling can also tighten loose skin in addition to its ability to smooth and correct damaged skin.

  • Microneedling makes skin glow after just one treatment and continues to boost the appearance of complexion for months afterward.
  • Microneedling can deliver pronounced effects with better skin texture.
  • Microneedling helps the enlarged open pores to appear much smaller. When collagen around the enlarged pores is stimulated, the area around the pore plumps and makes the pore itself disappear as the skin tightening is stimulated.
  • Only mild side effects such as irritation, swelling, bruising, itching, and discoloration at the injection site are seen, which usually subside within two days
  • The micro-holes post-microneedling absorbs creams, serums, and gels more readily and delivers them deeper into the dermis that boosts skin health and appearance.
  • Since only the candidate’s own blood is used during this treatment (when growth factors are applied), there is virtually no risk of allergic reaction or complications associated with this treatment.
  • Microneedling treatment is not painful as numbing cream is used prior to the treatment to minimize discomfort during the procedure.
  • Microneedling can also help address the thickening of the skin caused due to rosacea.
  • Microneedling helps to reduce the appearance of tanning, hyperpigmentation, and age spots and has the ability to stimulate new collagen and skin cells that help to even out the skin tone.
