Microneedling is a procedure that involves the use of needles to make small holes in the skin. The aim of the procedure is to generate new collagen and skin tissue. The treatment is primarily used on the face. It is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat wrinkles, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, scars, and cellulite. It has several advantages such as less painful and quick procedure with good results. However, the procedure is not safe for people taking medications for acne, patients with skin diseases such as psoriasis or eczema, patients who have recently undergone radiation therapy, and pregnant women. Bleeding, infection, bruising, and peeling are various side effects of the procedure.
The global microneedling market is driven by surge in demand for minimally invasive and effective therapeutic procedures, rise in adoption of skin care aesthetics among youngsters and adults, and increase in incidence of skin infections, acne vulgaris chronic hyperpigmentation, and other skin problems.
