Question: Question from Diana Van Den Berg

Hi Dr. Allem, I have a question on micro-needling, some say it works to make your face stronger and build collagen. Can you please let me know if this really does work, and how often should one do this? Is it every 3 to 4 weeks?

Answer

Thank you for your question, Diana. If you are particularly wanting to do needling for collagen induction and anti-ageing, you need to ensure that you are having the treatment done correctly at the right depth in order to stimulate the correct skin cells. Micro-needling at home with a device made for home use, will unfortunately not work for collagen induction as the treatment isn’t deep enough, however, home needling devices are absolutely fantastic for increased product penetration and increasing the efficacy of your skin care products. Micro-needling is one of the safest and very effective anti-ageing treatments, if done correctly by a trained professional. So I highly recommend needling if you are indicated for the treatment. Depending on how well and how quickly you heal, if you have had an intensive treatment, your treatment intervals can be done safely at 4 to 6 weeks.
