What Is Facial Microneedling?

October 25th, 2017 • Posted by Lupe Guthrie • Permalink

Microneedling for the face involves the use of a mechanized device that’s claimed to be great for improving fine lines, acne scarring, and pore size, as well as the tone and texture of skin.

What Is Facial Microneedling?
Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy, according to Dr. Ted Lain, Chief Medical Officer for Sanova Dermatology and Executive Director of the Austin Institute for Clinical Research.
Microneedling uses controlled injuries to the first and second layers of the skin to both cause the production of more collagen in the second layer, and help rejuvenate the first layer through a variety of mechanisms, explained Dr. Lain, who practices general and cosmetic dermatology in Austin, Texas.
“This stimulates healing and repair of skin, and the production of collagen,” Dr. Papantoniou said. “Microneedling is great for fine lines, acne scarring, pore size, and tone and texture of skin.”

Conversely, the surgical derma roller is used to treat a wide variety of skin conditions. These include lax skin, wrinkles on the face, upper lip and neck – as well as the arms, abdomen, buttocks, and legs.

“I urge caution in doing this at home because the risk of infection and scarring is ever-present,” Guthrie said. “You’re creating a wound in the skin, which always carries with it the potential for scarring. This procedure is valuable and effective, but best done by a skin specialist, practitioner or dermatologist.”

Keep in mind that this article is not intended as medical advice. Before you try any kind of microneedling procedure at home, it’s important to consult with your medical professional first.
