Microneedling: can you puncture your way to pretty skin?

Microneedling: can you puncture your way to pretty skin? Microneedling is a procedure that uses fine, sterile needles to puncture the skin to different depths. Inducing the wound-healing cascade in this way helps stimulate collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycan production and thus improve the quality and appearance of the skin. Microneedling has been shown to be a safe and efficacious treatment for a number of medical and aesthetic concerns. This article reviews the physiology, protocols and applications of microneedling in the aesthetic medical arena, as well as the reported side effects and adverse reactions. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Aesthetic Nursing Mark Allen Group

Abstract

Microneedling is a procedure that uses fine, sterile needles to puncture the skin to different depths. Inducing the wound-healing cascade in this way helps stimulate collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycan production and thus improve the quality and appearance of the skin. Microneedling has been shown to be a safe and efficacious treatment for a number of medical and aesthetic concerns. This article reviews the physiology, protocols and applications of microneedling in the aesthetic medical arena, as well as the reported side effects and adverse reactions.
