Microneedling is a procedure where a microneedle device is used to create tiny punctures in the skin to stimulate collagen production.
This treatment can be performed on any area of the body and does not usually require any anesthesia or downtime. . It has been deemed "the new botox" by some, and more people are looking for options than ever before.
The procedure itself is quick and easy, with most people experiencing minimal discomfort throughout the process. Patients typically say that they experience mild stinging sensation until their skin becomes numb as it's being treated with the microneedles. The procedure takes around 30 minutes and can be done in your lunch break if you're lucky enough!
There is no conclusive evidence to suggest that microneedling is any more unsafe than any other treatment. There have been no studies done to show any side effects of microneedling. The FDA has approved the procedure as well, so we can say with certainty that it has not been deemed unsafe by them.
