4 Frequently Asked Questions about Microneedling

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a non-surgical rejuvenation technique provided at Medical Cosmetics in Nottingham. Microneedling therapy is an advanced micro-medical skin-needling that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger looking skin.

What can be treated?
Microneedling Therapy can significantly improve the appearance of:

Acne scars
Aged and sun damaged skin
Facial and decollete lines and wrinkles
Stretch marks

We normally recommend that your Microneedling Therapy consists of a series of three Microneedling procedures with approximately 4 weeks between them. However in some cases such as acne scarring it may require further procedures.
What happens during and after the treatment?
We use a topical anaesthetic to numb the skin making the procedure comfortable. It will normally take up to 30 minutes for the topical anaesthetic to work and 20 – 30 minutes for the Microneedling Therapy procedure.

The Microneedling medical device produces thousands of micro-medical needle-columns in the skin. Each column will penetrate into the dermis of the skin.

After a Microneedling Therapy procedure your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, working below the surface in the dermis. This takes time as new collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced. It can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen and the process will continue over the following months, providing you with a natural and long lasting enhancement.

What can be expected after the treatment?
Immediately after your Microneedling procedure you will look as though you have moderate sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This will start to subside after one to two hours and will normally recover within the same day with only slight redness the following day.
