Abstract

Age-related changes in the dermis can be due both to intrinsic factors and to the consequence of environmental damage, such as ultraviolet (UV) radiation. There are several treatments available for skin aging. Among these treatment modalities, the very promising and innovative is microneedling, which is able to increase the penetration of many topical antiaging substances. Microneedling is a simple, safe, and minimally invasive procedure that uses fine needles to puncture the epidermis, stimulating the release of growth factors, and induce collagen production. The indications for microneedling therapy have grown significantly, and it is becoming a more widely used treatment in dermatology. Its efficacy when performed alone or in combination with other techniques. In experienced hands, microneedling is a very useful and promising aesthetic dermatology technique, because it is well accepted by the patient with a very short recovery time and with good results.
