Microneedling is a medical procedure that helps to improve the look of scars, wrinkles (around the eyes, mouth), photo-aging of the hands and neck, lax skin, stretch marks and the overall texture of the skin.
Microneedling may sound like an intimidating procedure, no thanks to the word “needle” in its name, but the treatment can be considered a more effective way to do a facial—aside from the numbing cream involved. “You’re really building collagen and thickening the skin, so instead of looking good for a few days after your traditional facial, your skin is smooth and radiant for much longer,” explains Beverly Hills-based plastic surgeon Dr. Sheila Nazarian. “It’s such a safe procedure, and is great for filling in acne scars.” Of course, the idea of getting needles inserted into your face for the sake of skincare can seem intimidating, but if you’ve seen the before and after shots, there’s no questioning the treatment’s effectiveness, and instead of using injectable fillers to repair an indented area, the process kick-starts your body’s own natural collagen production to heal the skin on its own.
