What is microneedling?

Unlock the potential of your skin's natural beauty with our Microneedling procedure.
Microneedling is gaining popularity for skin rejuvenation, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and treating scars. It involves using tiny sterile needles to create micropunctures in the skin, stimulating the dermis's wound healing process without causing significant damage to the epidermis. This process increases growth factors, which boost collagen and elastin production in the dermis. This treatment can be performed at We Are Beauty Clinic.
Microneedling is generally pain-free, often described as a scratching sensation.Depending on the treatment depth, a local anesthetic cream can be applied to minimize discomfort during the process.

What do dermatologists say about microneedling
Dermatologists generally view microneedling as a safe and effective procedure for skin rejuvenation and the treatment of various skin concerns. Here are some common perspectives from dermatologists:

  • Stimulates collagen production. Microneedling stimulates the body's natural collagen production, leading to improved skin texture, firmness, and elasticity.
  • Addresses multiple skin concerns. Microneedling can effectively treat fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, and uneven skin texture.
  • Minimal downtime. Compared to more invasive procedures like laser treatments or chemical peels, microneedling typically has minimal downtime, with mild redness and swelling lasting only a few days.
  • Safe for various skin types. Microneedling is safe for all skin types, including sensitive skin, and can be customized based on the individual's needs and skin concerns.
  • Enhances product absorption. The micro-channels created during microneedling allow for better absorption of topical skincare products, maximizing their effectiveness.
  • Gradual and cumulative results. While some improvement may be noticeable after a single session, the full benefits of microneedling are usually seen with a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart.

Our doctor at We Are Beauty Clinic often recommends microneedling as a versatile and effective option for skin rejuvenation and addressing various skin concerns. However, individual results may vary, and it's essential to consult with a qualified dermatologist to determine if microneedling is suitable for your specific skin needs and concerns.
Can you use retinol before microneedling
Retinoids, the most common form of vitamin A in skincare, are frequently employed to address acne, hyperpigmentation, and signs of aging. Various topical retinoids are available, including tretinoin (Retin-A), adapalene (Differin), and tazarotene (Tazorac).
However, these products can sometimes cause skin irritation. When used to treat acne, this irritation may result in significant side effects such as skin peeling and redness. If you're already experiencing redness or irritation before a microneedling treatment, applying a retinoid beforehand could exacerbate these issues.
There are also a list of recommendations like:
  • Avoiding exfoliating products;
  • Stay out of the sun;
  • Don’t take anti inflammatory medications;
  • Avoid hair removal creams or treatments.
