What are the differences between Microneedling and Laser Treatments?
The difference between Microneedling and Laser treatments is as follows: -
- Laser treatments cannot be done on skin of colour, while skin is tanned, while wearing false tan or if the skin is going to be exposed to the sun (hypersensitivity to the sun). Microneedling is safe on all skin types.
- Laser treatments burn the epidermus, therefore they cause thinning of the skin; which makes it more susceptible to lines & wrinkles. Microneedling thickens the outer layer of skin.

How does Microneedling work?
Microneedling is also referred to as Skin Needling, Collagen Induction Therapy and Micro-Needle Therapy. Micro-Needling is the ultimate non-surgical and non-ablative treatmentAs the very fine microneedles puncture the skin, they trigger the body's healing response. This “minor trauma” that is caused in the lower levels of the dermis stimulates the body to start naturally producing protiens and collagen. Microneedling leads to increased production of Elastin, Collagen and Improved Circulation in the area. Through the process of neovascularization and neocollagenesis, there is improvement in skin texture and firmness, as well as reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.
