1What is the science behind microneedling?
The needles can puncture the skin and cause a controlled injury at a specific depth due to the pen’s mechanical action. Each puncture creates a channel that leads to the body’s natural healing process by releasing new collagen and elastin in the papillary dermis.
Each puncture opens a channel that aids the body’s natural healing process by releasing new collagen and elastin in the papillary dermis.
2How does microneedling improve skin?
Microneedling causes collagen and other healing factors to be produced. Collagen is a key ingredient that helps keep the skin looking youthful, with a smooth, smooth, and stretchy texture.
The loss of collagen in the skin contributes to wrinkles and other signs of aging. Scarring, stretch marks, or other scars can also damage collagen.
3How does microneedling break up scar tissue?
Microneedling can produce natural collagenase by starting the wound healing process. This peels off the old scar tissue and allows the development of a new smooth layer of skin. Microneedling has been shown to result in scarring improvement by 1-2 grades in scientific studies.
Participants in another experiment reported an 80% improvement in the appearance of the scarring (1,2).
This article will address micro-needling’s treatment and effectiveness on a variety of scar types.

5Does microneedling reach dermis?
Microneedling kits at home can only affect the skin; they penetrate just the stratum corneum or epidermis) and reach 0.25 mm deep. Professional devices can go deeper (2 mm to 3 mm deep), reaching not only the epidermis but also the dermis, a deeper layer of skin.
6Is microneedling better than Botox?
Both these treatments, as stand-alone therapies, are in their own ways. Botox will produce good visual results on the skin, as the area will appear and feel smoother, but microneedling wins, hands down.
It’s also important to note that Botox will give faster results (within 2 weeks) than microneedling, as a series of 3-6 skin needling sessions, each 4-6 weeks apart, is usually recommended for optimal results. Following a thorough consultation, your doctor should be able to recommend the right treatment(s) for you based on your desired outcomes.
Should I have microneedling before Botox? Or Botox before microneedling? Or does it not matter?
i.e. If you choose to go down the treatment combination route. Botox and microneedling – I recommend that my patients wait two weeks between appointments. There are a few reasons for this. Firstly, Botox must be administered to healthy, intact skin, and microneedling creates numerous microscopic channels, so it would not be possible to perform both treatments in the same session.
7Does microneedling increase collagen?
Microneedling stimulates your skin to produce more collagen. The pinpricks from the procedure cause little skin damage, and the skin responds by producing new collagen-rich tissue. This new skin tissue is more even in tone and texture. It’s normal for the skin to lose collagen with age or injury.
With age or injury, collagen loss is normal. Additional collagen can help the skin firmer by encouraging the skin to produce new tissue.
8What is better chemical peel or microneedling?
Many of the same disorders are treated by microneedling and chemical peels, but no one will be able to use the same treatment. Chemical peels are used to treat more surface damage, such as wrinkles, texture issues, and scarring. Microneedling treats conditions such as rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and sagging skin.
Chemical peels help to heal damaged skin, and microneedling aids in the creation of a healing process that restores injury by filling it with collagen.

9How long do microneedling results last?
about three to five months.
The results’ longevity is dependent on two aspects: how long new collagen stays in your skin and the severity of your skin problems. People who need to produce a lot of collagen to address severe skin problems will likely have initial results that last for a few months, while those with mild skin problems may have longer results.
The consistency and durability of collagen produced with this therapy are dependent on several aspects, including your age, your stress, and your skin care.
10Why is microneedling not permanent?
Since the skin is a living tissue subject to continual change, microneedling is not permanent. In addition, each individual’s skin is unique, so the results of a microneedling pen last vary from person to person, depending on various factors.
11How long does it take collagen to rebuild after microneedling?
Following therapy, the majority of patients see full results between four and six weeks. Your body needs time to produce collagen and elastin, as well as sending it to your micro wounds.

12Why do my pores look bigger after microneedling?
For those days, the skin is a bit rougher, and the pores are larger as a result of the needles’ damage. The skin appears plump and tightened as a result of a natural wound healing response that produces new collagen, and the enlarged pore becomes smaller.

Skin damage is a risk that is typical of microneedling machines. The harm may include bleeding, bruising, redness, itching, and peeling, and these will usually go away without any medication after a few days or weeks.
When cosmetics or other skin care products such as moisturizers and sunscreen are used, dark or light spots on the skin, lines on the face, a rash of cold sores, swollen lymph nodes, and infection are all typical risks.
Be aware that microneedling does not always result in the desired aesthetic appearance, and it may take more than one procedure to achieve the desired results.
14What happens if you microneedle too often?
Microneedling is Too Often Failure to do so will delay healing, inflammation, inflammation, and slow results, which we don’t want to do to our skin. Collagen is already present in the skin up to a month after microneedling, so be patient.
If you’re using a derma roller, you’ll want to wait at least two weeks for your skin to recover. For longer needle lengths, you should give your skin a rest, but you shouldn’t even be using large needle sizes at home (1mm+) because they can be more difficult if not handled by a specialist.
Needless are not rolled into skin and are rolled onto skin instead, so the micro-hole it creates tend to be wider shaped cones, which is why giving two weeks between each session is preferable.
15Why does my face look worse after microneedling?
After microneedling, skin can appear slightly swollen. This is due to the treatment’s natural and mechanical injuries. The degree of swelling (if any) will vary depending on skin sensitivity and the severity of the therapy. When swelling does occur, it is subtle and subsides in about three days.
A cold compress can help reduce swelling, reduces inflammation, and can be incredibly refreshing.
After microneedling, skin may feel swollen. This could be due to weight loss, swelling, or both. For some patients, visible marks may be present, but these are usually light. There’s no reason to be concerned about anything “off” on your face after microneedling, and it will be clear in a few days. Many people who are prone to acne breakouts could also experience a flare-up, particularly if you have active acne lesions at the treatment center. Microneedling can help with acne scarring, but it can also spread the bacteria that causes acne. If you have acne, keep in mind that acne is a medical disorder. Because there is no such thing as a cure for acne, consult with your dermatologist about acne treatments.
