Microneedling in Munich - anti-aging without surgery

How anti-ageing can work without surgery

The slow ageing of the skin affects us all and skin changes increase with age. You can prevent skin ageing as well as a dull, pale complexion. The simple solution is called microneedling.

The procedure is very well established in anti-ageing medicine and is valued by men and women alike as a measure for visual rejuvenation. Microneedling is generally very well tolerated and, above all, is associated with little pain. Only in very rare cases can there be short-term restrictions.

The procedure itself shows that medical microneedling can be an ideal method for almost anyone who wants a fresher appearance: In the first step, the skin is treated with an automated derma pen. This has a treatment head with very fine needles that can penetrate around 0.5 to 2.5 mm into the uppermost layer of skin. Depending on the set speed, several thousand microchannels are created by the rotation. The resulting stimulation of the skin leads to the formation of new elastin and collagen. In contrast to conventional devices, which can also be found on the internet in cheaper versions, a professional derma pen for medical microneedling has a needle attachment that is sterilized before each treatment. This means that - compared to simple devices - it is free from the risk of infection through contamination. For example, Dr. Anna-Theresa Lipp treats your forehead gently with a needle depth of 1.5 mm. In the cheek area, on the other hand, needle depths of up to 2.5 mm can stimulate elastin and collagen production.

Incidentally, medical microneedling can also be an excellent way for women after pregnancy to get their stretch marks under control.

How exactly does microneedling work in Munich?

The penetration of the small needles stimulates various receptors and growth factors in the skin, which in turn have a stimulating effect on collagen and elastic fibers and allow them to regenerate. Both collagen and elastin ensure the elasticity and resilience of your skin and are therefore crucial for a fresh, natural appearance.

What are the other advantages of microneedling?

After microneedling, the skin can absorb more rejuvenating and hydrating substances, which also penetrate deeper into the tissue. It takes around 12 to 14 weeks before results are visible, as the tissue only regenerates slowly.

Are there advantages compared to other methods?

Compared to other established medical procedures for skin rejuvenation, medical microneedling does not cause the skin to lose thickness. This is a phenomenon that can occur with microdermabrasion or laser treatment, for example. Microneedling therefore preserves the skin's natural protective function.

Should the treatment take place more frequently to achieve good results?

At least three sessions are recommended, with a break of around 6 weeks between each one. Experience has shown that very good results can be achieved in this way. Depending on your individual circumstances, the results can last up to three years. An annual refresher is recommended to stabilize the result in the long term.

Is a sick note required for microneedling?

Experience has shown that you will be absent for approx. 1 day. We will discuss whether and to what extent risks and side effects exist in an individual consultation.
