Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that’s used to treat skin concerns via collagen production.
How does micro-needling work?
Microneedling works by encouraging your skin to make more collagen. Pinpricks from the procedure injure the skin, promoting the creation of new collagen-rich tissue. This new skin tissue is more even in tone and texture.
What can micro-needling help with?
- acne scars
- age spots (also called “sun spots”)
- fine lines and wrinkles
- large pores
- other types of scars
- reduced skin elasticity
- uneven skin tone
Is it painful?
The doctor will use a topical anaesthetic to reduce the chances of pain and discomfort.
Is it safe?
As with most procedures, there are side effects, and Dr Musa will discuss these with you.
The most common are minor skin irritation and redness. These are normal, as the needles cause small ‘injuries’ to the skin.
However, with a certified doctor, there is nothing to worry about!
What is the downtime?
Microneedling is minimally invasive, so the recovery time is very short.
One thing to note is the redness, which can be covered with make-up if one desires.
Your skin will also be more sensitive to the sun, so sunscreen is a must.
When will I see results?
Your skin works fairly quickly to rejuvenate new tissue.
Results are usually seen after a few weeks.
Multiple treatments are usually needed for maximum and ongoing benefits.
Best GP I’ve ever been to. Very thorough and wide range of expertise. My family has followed him to three different practices and excited that he has his own now. Highly recommended.
