Nial Holmes explained in her post that this treatment is really beneficial for the skin and The Skin Pen, which is the tool used for microneedling,  makes hundreds of thousands of micro-holes into the skin that then induces a natural repair mechanism. “Here for Victoria I have 'needled' in a medical-grade Hyaluronic acid and vitamin cocktail into the skin to enhance results,” he said. 

Victoria loves this treatment and always advise it. “The treatment doesn’t hurt as a numbing cream is applied for 30 min prior to desensitize the skin. [But] I always advise microneedling is carried out by a qualified practitioner”

How much does microneedling cost?

This is not a very cheap treatment. According to Dermapan, microneedling costs from $100 to $700 per session while other face treatments run around $300 each session.

Microneedling’s procedure

The procedure usually takes 6 to 8 sessions and each session lasts approximately 30 minutes. Before starting, the professional will apply a topical anesthetic to reduce the chances of pain, cleanse the skin, and finally use the needles around your face

Is there any risk?

Like other cosmetic procedures, it can cause skin irritation or redness but just for a few days. If your side effects get worse, call your doctor.
