According to dermatologist, Sabine Zenker, microneedling is an effective facial treatment for increasing collagen production and serum penetration by producing micro-incisions in the skin’s dermis. As an alternative to laser treatments and chemical peels, the procedure is increasing in popularity for skin rejuvenation and treatment of facial scars. All skin types and colors can benefit from the treatments as there is no risk for scarring, low risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, and no heat occurs during the session. Because the incisions close 10-15 minutes after treatment, there is also a low risk of infection. This is awesome news for us with acne scars, wrinkles, and photodamaged skin.
