What Is Medical Skin Needling?
Medical Skin Needling is an aesthetic medical procedure that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles (microneedling the skin) in order to induce production of cutaneous collagen. This procedure is used to treat surgical scars including keloids, deep acne marks, wrinkles, stretch marks, pore size and signs of aging. Your skin expert would use a state of the art medical grade, high speed microneedling system which would vertically pierce the skin without causing much pain and low downtime. The skin plumps and thickens in response to this stimulus, ultimately reducing the appearance of scars, and fine lines and other skin texture changes. This line of treatment is especially beneficial to those wanting complete facial rejuvenation by addressing issues like fine lines, wrinkles and dullness in one inclusive treatment.
At Musk Clinic, we use the world’s most advanced US-FDA approved technology for skin needling: eDermastamp
What To Expect?
To begin the treatment, the area is cleaned and a topical anesthetic is applied to the skin to reduce discomfort and make the procedure pain-free. The depth and speed of the technique is based on individual case assessment. We needle with a powerful epidermal growth factor serum to obtain the best results possible. While these micro channels in your skin are open and in an intensified wound-healing state, the epidermal growth serum aids in repair and remodeling of the dermis. The downtime post-procedure is minimal, typically a patient may experience redness and minor swelling for 12 to 48 hours afterward, skin to a minor sunburn.
Usually you will notice some improvement in the texture, tone and vitality of your skin after the first or second treatment.

Skin will continue to improve over the next 6 to 12 months post treatment with proper home care regimen. Microneedling creates permanent and dramatic reparative changes to skin, results will vary in each patient.
