Microneedling is a proven method for improving the appearance of the skin. It is used, for example, for scars, eye wrinkles, mouth wrinkles, skin atrophy (caused by multi-year sun exposure), skin roughness, pigmentation spots, stretch marks and ageing skin. The treatment generates minuscule vertical punctures that stimulate regenerative processes.
The scientifically proven skin reactions can be explained in a very precise way: due to micro injuries, the body’s own cells (fibroblasts) and growth factors migrate into the skin. Together, they cause the conversion of undirected, fibrous and inelastic collagen into youthful, smooth collagen. In addition, the growth of the body’s own skin cells leads to a thickening of the upper layer of skin that becomes more stable, resistant and finer again as a result. The effect can be boosted by applying concentrated doses of vitamin A and C. We also exclusively work the same hyaluronic acid into the skin that we also use to treat dark circles under the eye. We are currently documenting this optimization of microneedling in an observational study, especially in problematic areas like the eyes and mouth wrinkles. Overall, we see this to be an ideal approach which advances our treatment concepts in a particularly “natural” way!
Microneedling is a medical treatment that must be carried out carefully and individually. From experience, the best results can be achieved when using a 1-2mm needle. For this reason, this treatment also belongs in trained hands in order to ensure an almost painless and complication-free treatment.
From experience, four to six treatments are required for the best result. As collagen regeneration and conversion begins after four to six weeks at the earliest, we recommend intervals of four to six weeks.
To maintain the result and continue to optimize it, we also work with care products containing retinol. You can find more information on this on the skincare page.
