What is Traditional Microneedling?
Traditional microneedling is a minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses a device with small needles to create tiny punctures in the skin. This controlled injury stimulates the skin’s natural healing response, which promotes the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are proteins that give the skin its strength, elasticity, and firmness.
Traditional microneedling can be used to achieve a variety of aesthetic goals, including:
- Reduced wrinkles and fine lines
- Improved skin texture
- Reduced scarring
- Increased skin radiance
- Reduced pore size

How Does Traditional Microneedling Work?
When the needles puncture the skin, they create tiny channels that allow for the delivery of topical products or the infusion of certain substances, such as growth factors or stem cells. The body’s natural healing response then kicks in, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. This results in the improvement of skin texture, the reduction of wrinkles and fine lines, and the overall improvement of the appearance of the skin.
Who is a Good Candidate for Traditional Microneedling?
