Microneedling is a technique that creates microscopic holes in the skin across the epidermis and exposing the dermis and subcutaneous tissues. Through microtrauma, this procedure stimulates fibroblast proliferation and the production of intrinsic collagen, rejuvenating the skin.
These micro-holes can also be used to allow the passage of macromolecules that would not otherwise pass through the different layers of the epidermis – creating complex treatment schemes with substantially better results than those of isolated microneedling. This technique can be combined with localized superficial and medium peels, compounds such as hyaluronic acid and vitamins, even platelet-rich plasma. It can be used in hair treatments, either by applying platelet-rich plasma or substances that favor follicular growth. It can also be used in scars and low-grade active acne.
This technique is indicated in a wide range of pathologies, requiring several sessions to achieve significant results.
Given the complexity of the most advanced treatment schemes – the most effective – these treatments must be carried out by qualified doctors in the field of aesthetic medicine.
