The skin is a very effective barrier, so it is no surprise that only about 7-10% products that are applied to the skin will get absorbed. Microneedling allows up to 80% more product into the skin, providing essential cell nutrients for stimulating your own collagen naturally. With medical microneedling, the products can be delivered to the depth of the fibroblasts (cells that play a role in keeping skin young). However, there are some products which are harmful to be used with needling, so it is important to know what you are doing with this treatment, which is why you should only see an appropriately trained medical professional for this.
At the Bexley Clinic, you will always have a full assessment to determine if microneedling is the best treatment for your particular needs. It is normally recommended to have a course of treatments, although results can be seen after just one session.
