Microneedling has a very wide use in aesthetic medicine, including smoothing out fine lines, acne scars, stretch marks, fighting hair loss and a number of other conditions.
Is Microneedling for fine lines and anti-aging painful?
A numbing cream or spray is applied prior to the actual Microneedling. The skin is numb after 15-60 minutes depending on the method. Once the skin is numb the treatment is very comfortable.
Procedure for Microneedling for fine lines and anti-aging
First a topical is applied to numb the skin. The skin is then cleaned thoroughly before Microneedling is started. The Microneedling itself may take between 10-30 minutes depending on the area that is being treated and the scars being treated.
After the procedure PRP, a serum, a moisturiser or nothing may be applied to the area.
