Benefits of Microneedling Treatment

Microneedling or collagen induction therapy is a cosmetic procedure that stimulates collagen production in the skin. This minimally invasive process is safe for all skin types and produces desired results for people of all ages. Due to its ability to stimulate collagen and elastin production, microneedling is a very effective treatment for acne and surgical scars, fine lines, and open pores.

At AJK Skin & Laser Centre, every needle depth, speed, number of sessions, and aftercare plan is based on your skin type and condition and your specific expectations. In the past two years, we have treated more than 200 patients for anti-ageing under the guidance of Dr. Selvam and Dr. Nirmala.

Microneedling has several key benefits. The treatment
  • Tightens loose skin.
  • Boosts skin glow and complexion.
  • Enhances skin texture and appearance.
  • Reduces hyperpigmentation, age spots, and skin tanning.

Microneedling Procedure at AKJ Skin and Laser Centre

Traditionally, microneedling uses a needle to create micro-injuries in the skin to create collagen. Microneedling with radiofrequency uses an angled needle to induce collagen formation with controlled micro-injuries. These specially-designed needles deliver high-intensity Radiofrequency energy through electrodes to allow the creation of thermal wounds between unaffected areas. In the treatment, the single electrode and grounding pad on the skin comprises the unipolar/monopolar RF device. In contrast to unipolar/monopolar RF, bipolar RF can deliver a more focused current to the dermis

During the procedure, your healthcare expert cleans the skin and applies Lidocaine gel, a numbing gel, to minimise the discomfort. The gel is applied about thirty or forty minutes before the procedure so that the ointment can take effect. Following that, your healthcare provider will make the wounds by gently rolling an electric tool or a hand-held roller with tiny needles across your skin.

Once the procedure begins, you may feel a warm or scratching sensation and slight bleeding. The discomfort may be more pronounced near bony areas, like your cheekbones. Depending on the size of the treatment area, the microneedling procedure may take anywhere from fifteen minutes to a few hours.

Pre Care
Post Care
At AKJ Skin and Laser Centre, we offer microneedling as one of our most popular aesthetic RF treatments. For better microneedling results, you should:
Avoid taking blood-thinning drugs and nutritional supplements
Avoid topical acne medications like retinoids
Avoid removing hair through waxing and electrolysis for a week
Avoid physical exfoliation and chemical peels
Take an antiviral 48 hours before your session if you have cold sores
Avoid applying any makeup, lotion or sunscreen to the treatment area on the day of the treatment
Generally, microneedling is a safe process, but for the minor discomfort, redness, warmth and swelling that one may experience post-treatment. We recommend you strictly follow these guidelines for the first few days after a treatment:
Do not pick at peeling skin. It can cause an acne outbreak or infections
Use only a limited amount of moisturiser to keep your skin hydrated
Avoid doing anything that makes you sweat profusely during the first 3 days
Avoid using cosmetics for at least a week post-treatment
Avoid applying ice on or near the treated area

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I discuss with my doctor before opting for microneedling?
Before opting for the treatment, ask your doctor if you are an ideal candidate for microneedling and if the process can be done at home.
What should I expect after microneedling?

After the procedure, you may experience the following:

  • Mild burning or tightness in the skin
  • Dryness and flaking of the skin

In most cases, microneedling treatments should be spaced out about three weeks to 8 weeks apart. Results can be seen after three to six months. The procedure may need to be repeated once a year thereafter.

Is microneedling ideal for everyone?

Microneedling may not suit everyone. If you have the following issues, please consult your doctor:

  • Moles and freckles that change shape, size or bleed
  • Severe acne for which you are taking medication
  • Cancer for which you are undergoing chemo or radiation therapy
  • Contact dermatitis or cold sores
  • Eczema or Psoriasis
  • Keloidal tendency

  • Minor acne and burn scars
  • Uneven skin tone and skin discolouration
  • Stretch marks
How many sessions will I need?
