What Areas Can Microneedling Treat?

Microneedling is relatively comfortable compared to other cosmetic procedures thanks to the numbing cream and the specialized, handheld tool used in each session. The procedure boosts collagen and elastin production, so it’s become a popular option for facial treatments. However, it doesn’t have to be limited to just the face.

What Areas Can Microneedling Treat?

Microneedling works by delivering tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin. As a consequence, the body will attempt to repair these punctures by stimulating collagen and elastin production in the area, resulting in visibly improved skin. Therefore, microneedling can be used anywhere on the body that is affected by any of the following conditions:

  • Acne scars
  • Enlarged pores
  • Fine lines
  • Hair loss
  • Age spots
  • Light scars

Microneedling for the Face

Naturally, microneedling is ideal for targeting skin issues on the face. Increasing collagen production can “fill in” minor indentations in the skin, such as acne scars, large pores, and fine lines. At the same time, hyperpigmentation resulting from sun damage, acne, or natural aging are naturally reversed as the skin heals itself from each microneedling treatment. The procedure is also recommended for sagging skin, dullness, and other very early signs of aging.

Does Microneedling Have Any Risks?

Like any other procedure involving needles, microneedling comes with its own risks. Some mild redness and irritation immediately following treatment is normal. In some rare cases, severe side effects can develop. Consulting a trained professional is the best way to minimize these risks, which may include:

  • Infection
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Peeling skin
  • Permanent scarring
