Skin needling, also known as derma rolling, is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. The needles are used to puncture the skin to create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin. Through a process called neovascularization and neocollagenesis, there is improvement in skin texture and firmness, as well as reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.
Skin needling has proved to be a simple and fast method for safely treating wrinkles and scars. Because the epidermis remains intact, the procedure can be repeated safely and is now becoming widely used as a treatment for all skin types to improve the skin’s appearance and quality, and to improve or even prevent scarring.
The number of skin needling sessions depends on the individual. An interval of 4 to 6 weeks between treatments is typically recommended.
