Reduce wrinkles, scars, pigmentation and acne.

Microneedling, or percutaneous collagen induction, is a new modality used for skin rejuvenation, tightening, and scar remodeling. It offers a simple and effective treatment for photo-aged skin with minimal disruption of the epidermis, thus limiting adverse effects and minimizing downtime.

Microneedling is a relatively new, minimally invasive procedure involving superficial and controlled puncturing of the skin by rolling with miniature fine needles. Traditionally used as a collagen induction therapy for facial scars and skin rejuvenation, it is also widely used now as a transdermal delivery system for therapeutic drugs and vaccines.

The procedure is a very simple, safe, effective, and minimally invasive therapeutic technique. It was initially introduced for skin rejuvenation, however, now it is being used for a very wide range of indications including acne scar, acne, post-traumatic/burn scar, alopecia, skin rejuvenation, drug delivery, hyperhidrosis, stretch marks, and many more. Moreover, during the last 10 years, many new innovations have been made to the initial instrument, which was used for microneedling. This technique can be combined with other surgical techniques to provide better results. In particular, it is a very safe technique for dark skin types, where risk of post-inflammatory pigmentation is very high with other techniques that damage the epidermis.
