Microneedling - a typical session

The principle of microneedling is to perform micro-perforations on the skin of the face using a dermaroller, a needle device, to stimulate the production of collagen.

Depending on the institute, it may or may not be accompanied by a light therapy session to promote the diffusion of the active ingredients in the skin.

First, the beautician will examine your skin to find out which areas to focus on. Then, it will disinfect the skin to prevent bacteria from entering during micro-perforations. Comes after the use of the dermaroller, according to a well-defined meaning. 

Do not worry, you will not normally feel any pain, the discomfort is still quite bearable. The beautician specifies this when the use of an anesthetic cream is necessary. The beautician will insist on the areas where the wrinkles are clearly visible. Finally, the session ends with a gentle moment: the application of care and / or moisturizer since the skin will be very receptive at this time.
