Are you experiencing wrinkles around your eyes and deepening lines throughout your face? Do you want to get rid of them but you are hesitant to go under the knife? You are not alone and you have the option of several non-surgical ways to help combat aging. One of the safest and most efficient of these methods is microneedling.
Today, microneedling is a popular cosmetic treatment option, as can be seen from the current global microneedling market size, which was valued at $505 million in 2021, and is expected to grow this decade at a compounded annual growth rate of 7.70%. Factors such as rising aesthetic awareness, an increasing elderly population, and the positive reviews that the treatment constantly receives are responsible for this tremendous growth.
If you also want to rejuvenate your skin with microneedling, it is important to understand what can be treated and the benefits of these treatments.
What Is Microneedling and How Does It Help in Skin Rejuvenation?
Microneedling is a non-surgical, minimally invasive cosmetic skin rejuvenation treatment performed by a certified and trained physician. During the procedure, a dermapen creates superficial microchannels on the skin’s surface, stimulating the skin’s repair mechanism by increasing collagen and elastin production while regenerating skin cells. This results in smoother and firmer skin.
Conditions That Can Benefit from Microneedling Treatment
Microneedling treatment has proven to be highly effective for treating several types of facial skin conditions including:
- Different types of scars, such as acne scarring, surgical scars, and others
- Enlarged pores
- Stretch marks

Advanced microneedling treatments for better results
Microneedling is an FDA-approved non-surgical, minimally invasive aesthetic procedure deemed safe for patients above 22 years for a wide range of skin conditions of the face. While it is a relatively pain-free procedure, a numbing cream is applied to the treatment area to reduce any pain or discomfort you may experience.
The procedure is done by a trained physician as an outpatient procedure that is completed within an hour or less, depending on the area of skin being treated. You can resume normal activities after the procedure. You may experience redness and tenderness in the affected area that subsides on its own without further medication. However, you must wait for 24 hours before applying makeup on your face to avoid aggravating the skin.
Microneedling by creating micro-wounds on the skin surface instantly activates collagen and elastin production within the skin as a healing mechanism that results in faster new skin cell generation.
As a result of the treatment, scars and sunspots are visibly reduced, as well as large pores, particularly around the nose, become smaller and less visible.
The skin blemishes on the face may be due to hyperpigmentation caused by pimples, whiteheads, or blackheads. The fine needles used to create microchannels on the skin’s surface also effectively remove the source of recurring acne, pimples, and blackheads.
Increased collagen and elastin production and regeneration of new skin cells as a result of the treatment add smoothness and firmness to any loose and sagging facial skin, further reducing the visible fine lines and wrinkles.
Collagen and elastin production in the body reduces with advancing age which directly affects the condition of your skin. You notice more skin blemishes, and the skin gradually loses its glow and firmness. Microneedling rejuvenates your facial skin making your face look younger and smoother.
Microneedling has been used, with great success, with other cosmetic skin treatments such as PRP. In the procedure, for an enhanced boost in collagen production and faster results, plasma-rich platelets are topically applied to the wounds formed during microneedling leading to superior results. Microneedling with PRP benefits the skin from the inside out giving you a completely natural look.
Microneedling treatments have proved to be a highly effective and relatively affordable option for people around the world suffering from blotchy, scarred, and wrinkled facial skin. It enables people to regain their self-confidence and face the world with renewed enthusiasm. If you’re interested in undergoing microneedling treatment, it is highly recommended to consult a skin expert to find the best-fit treatment for your aesthetic goals.
