Microneedling is a popular skin care treatment that can be used to improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks. But can microneedling damage skin? Let’s discuss.

Can Microneedling Actually Damage Your Skin?

There is some concern that microneedling can cause skin damage rather, but research has shown that this is not typically the case. In fact, when performed correctly by a skilled professional, microneedling is safe and effective for most people.

However, there are a few things to keep in mind before deciding if microneedling is right for you. First, pregnant or breastfeeding women should avoid this treatment. Second, people with sensitive skin may experience irritation or inflammation after treatment. Finally, those who have active acne lesions should wait until the lesions have healed before undergoing microneedling.

If you are considering microneedling and meet the above criteria, make sure to consult with a qualified professional to get started. They can help assess your skin type and candidacy for treatment and provide instructions on how to safely achieve the best results.
