Everything you need to know.

Microneedling through the use of the SkinPen is an aesthetic procedure that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny sterile probes in order to induce the production of collagen and elastin. The SkinPen is used to treat acne scars, surgical scars or burns, as well as to treat hyperpigmentation (brown spots and Melasma). It can also be used to improve wrinkles, minimise pore size and induce skin tightening as collagen production promotes regeneration and better complexion.
Microneedling with the SkinPen is a minimally invasive procedure that has little or no recovery time. Noticeable results will be seen in less than a day and it is safe for all skin types. The procedure is effective on all body parts but is most commonly used on the face, neck and decolletage.

What does microneedling do?

During your microneedling treatment, tiny sterile probes are used to puncture the skin in a controlled environment. The probes enter the skin vertically without tearing or scratching the tissue which causes inflammation and triggers a wound healing response.

Following on from this, the skin is cleaned to prevent infection and provide the best conditions for healing. Damaged cells and bacteria are removed from the area, your blood vessels dilate (the skin goes red) to allow the white blood cells to flood to the area. These white blood cells and nutrients from the blood enter the wound and accumulate there. They cleanse the wound by releasing chemicals that digest any bacteria or tissue debris present.

The next phase, known as the proliferative phase is when the your body starts producing new collagen. The new collagen is not laid down in nice straight lines, instead it is constructed in a random, disorganised fashion. This happens because the body is trying to repair the area quickly. White blood cells then re-jig the disorganised collagen and compact it down into nice, straight, structured lines, giving the skin strength, volume and a more youthful appearance.

It is important that the skin goes through all of these phases to produce new collagen and remodel old collagen. Immediately after the procedure, the skin will have an inflammatory response to prevent further infection and blood loss, following which healing can take place.
