Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that stimulates your blood circulation. It’s typically done to improve the appearance of scars and increase collagen production.
Microneedling in a clinical environment takes several hours for preparation and the procedure.
Something that isn’t often discussed is the aftercare necessary after the procedure. Microneedling actually punctures your skin, so you need to take steps to protect your skin barrier as it heals.
Even if you’re microneedling at home, you’ll still need to take extra care of your skin in the days after performing the treatment.
