Your Guide to Microneedling in Hong Kong | Liv

Ever wanted to give microneedling in Hong Kong a go, but didn’t know where to start? Check out our comprehensive guide to the procedure and find out if microneedling in Hong Kong is right for you.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling, also known as derma rolling or skin needling, is an aesthetic treatment in which a trained professional rolls tiny, sterile needles across your skin, making thousands of microscopic punctures. The treatment is typically performed on the face, but you can do microneedling on any part of your body. The tiny wounds trigger collagen and elastin production as your body repairs the damage, resulting in plumper, luminous skin, and an improvement in the appearance of wrinkles. The treatment is also effective on acne scars, pigmentation and sun damage.

Does it hurt? Well, yes, the treatment can be a little uncomfortable, particularly on sensitive areas such as your nose of cheekbones. Depending on the type of machine used, some practicioners may use a numbing cream, while newer devices, such as the Dermapen 4, are considered to be gentle enough to not require it. Despite the discomfort, the results are what keep people coming back. Customers report a luminous glow, a plumped appearance and long-lasting results, without running the risk of skin discolouration like you might get from a laser facial. This also makes microneedling suitable for people with darker skin. Reactions vary depending on the individual, but most people look pretty much normal immediately after the treatment and don’t require any downtime.

So what do you need to know before giving microneedling a go? First, make sure you do your research and find a trustworthy, practitioner with the highest standards of hygiene. Second, make sure to take care of your skin immediately afterwards. Don’t expose it to sun or excess heat, or apply any retinols or other chemical exfoliants. You should start to notice plumper, brighter, smoother skin and an improvement in the appearance of wrinkles, lines and scars a few days after the treatment.
