What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure widely used in clinical and aesthetic dermatology.
The procedure works by creating numerous small perforations in the upper layer of the skin using instruments with rows of fine needles that penetrate the dermis to a uniform depth. In response to these micro-lesions, the skin stimulates the production of collagen and elastin fibers, resulting in accelerated cell renewal. This reaction helps improve skin thickness and firmness.
Why is it indicated?
Originally developed for skin rejuvenation, microneedling is now used on various areas of the body. It is also recommended for other situations, including:
- Treatment of various forms of scarring: It can be effective in reducing acne scars, helping to smooth the skin, and minimizing the appearance of scars.
- Reduction of hyperpigmentation, including brown spots, by promoting cell renewal and improving the even distribution of pigments.
- Treatment of alopecia to promote hair regrowth by stimulating hair follicles.
- Medication administration: It facilitates the absorption of certain topical medications, increasing their effectiveness.
- Reduction of hyperhidrosis.
- Reduction of stretch marks and more.
It's important to note that this procedure in Turkey should always be performed by a qualified professional to guarantee optimal results and avoid any risk of adverse effects.
Devices used in Turkey
Microneedling relies on the use of a specific device reserved exclusively for dermatological professionals. These include the Dermaroller, Dermapen, and Derma-Stamps.
These devices are equipped with needles up to 3 mm in length. However, a length of 0.5 mm is generally preferred to minimize bleeding and ensure rapid healing.
Depending on the treatment objective, the needle length may vary. For example, a longer needle length of 1.5 to 2.0 mm may be chosen for scar treatment. On the other hand, for skin rejuvenation and wrinkle reduction, 0.5 to 1.0 mm needles are generally recommended.
It is also important to consider the type of skin being treated. For example, thick, oily skin, such as that around the nose, may require deeper penetration than delicate, fine skin, such as that around the eyes. The choice of needle length should therefore be based on the area to be treated and the individual characteristics of the skin.
The Process of Microneedling in Turkey
There are several steps to a microneedling process in Turkey. A preliminary consultation with a medical or aesthetic professional is essential to assess your goals, medical history, and skin type. This step is to determine if microneedling is an appropriate option for you.
Next, a topical anesthetic cream is applied to the area to be treated approximately one hour before the session to minimize discomfort during the procedure.
After thoroughly disinfecting and cleansing the skin to remove any traces of makeup, dirt, or oil, a solution containing anti-aging ingredients such as antioxidant vitamins, hyaluronic acid, and peptides is applied to the area to be treated.
The physician then uses a microneedling device to create micro-perforations in the skin. The needles penetrate to a controlled depth and can be directed in different directions to cover the area evenly.
After the microneedling session, an LED light (photomodulation) can be used to enhance results by promoting skin repair and regeneration.

After the session, the treated area may show temporary redness, which usually disappears quickly. It is important to use sunscreen in the following days to protect the skin. It is also advisable to avoid exposure to heat (sun, hammam, sauna, and swimming pool) and the use of cosmetic products, except for a repair balm.
