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.

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

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.
