What Is


Microneedling is a novel method which has gained a lot of momentum today due to its anti-aging skincare properties that help restore a youthful glow to the skin. It is a minimally invasive, low downtime, safe and effective procedure. It works by stimulating the collagen production. Collagen is like food for the skin, and hence encouraging collagen production greatly helps the skin to have a youthful and attractive appearance. 

Microneedling is also often termed as Collagen Induction Therapy.  It makes use of a hand piece which has miniscule needles which help to make controlled injuries on the skin in order to boost collagen production. It is an excellent restorative and multi-purpose treatment in order to get rid of and smoothen fine wrinkles and lines on the face. It is also highly beneficial for those with an uneven skin tone and scars and marks. 

When we say multipurpose, it truly is! For it not only helps enhance and beautify the skin, but also the hair!

  • Microneedling for Skin
     Microneedling for the skin involves the use of a dermaroller. This dermaroller is a small hand held device and has tiny needles.The dermaroller works in the following way:
    1. The dermaroller is rolled on the skin and the needles prick the outer layer of the skin.
    2. This pricking action causes micro-injuries on the face which in turn instigate micro-inflammation. However, these micro-injuries are controlled.
    3. The micro-inflammation encourages collagen production and also further boosts the blood circulation.
    A heightened collagen production and proper blood circulation helps in healing the skin and enhancing its youthfulness.
  • Microneedling For Hair
    Microneedling is definitely beneficial for various anti-ageing treatments. Along with that, it is also greatly useful as hair loss treatment. The principle of collagen production remains the same as collagen helps to restore skin as well as stimulate hair growth. The same procedure mentioned above is generally used and the dermaroller is rolled on the scalp to promote hair growth. Microneedling is also often combined with Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment (PRP) which makes use of one’s own platelets which are separated from their blood to have a platelet rich plasma (serum). This serum is then injected into target areas. A combination of these treatments is highly favourable as both work towards collagen production and give excellent and stunning results.
