As we age, skin loses its elasticity, becoming looser and leading to wrinkles. At any stage of life, you can also experience uneven pigmentation due to sun exposure or acne scars. Microneedling is a popular new procedure that improves skins tone and texture by stimulating collagen production and is now available to Dr. Husni’s patients.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a procedure in which micro-injuries or micro-channels are created in the face using very tiny needles. This triggers the body’s natural healing response, which helps to stimulate new collagen production. This results in firmer, brighter, and more even skin.

Am I A Good Candidate?

The best candidates for microneedling are in good general health. They also have skin concerns, such as sunspots, mild to moderate skin laxity, or acne scars, that are not responsive to at-home treatments or other types of professional procedures. Microneedling is a good option for those who do not wish to pursue surgery or other more invasive solutions. It is a suitable treatment for issues including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduced elasticity
  • Sunspots or age spots
  • Enlarged pores
  • Acne scars
  • Uneven skin tone or texture

What To Expect

Unlike at-home dermal rollers, professional microneedling treatment uses a pen-like tool to deliver the small pinpricks to the skin. These are small enough to not be visibly noticeable when the procedure is complete. Usually, a topical anesthetic will be applied before the procedure to ensure your comfort throughout. Treatment time varies by the size of the area you’re addressing, but can usually be completed within 30 minutes.
