microneedling for the hands


What is microneedling for hands? 

Microneedling has become a buzzword in the cosmetic industry in recent years due to its incredible ability to rejuvenate the skin. While it is most commonly used to treat the face, microneedling has also gained popularity for its efficacy in treating hands. As we age, the skin on our hands can become thin and develop lines and age spots. 

Microneedling can be used to address these concerns by promoting collagen production and triggering the body’s natural healing process.


This technique has also been used for various skin concerns, such as reducing the appearance of scars, stetch marks as well as fine lines, and wrinkles. 

As we age, the skin on our hands lose volume and elasticity, leading to thinning skin, wrinkles, and fine lines. Microneedling can help to stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture and tone on the hands.

 It works by puncturing the skin’s surface with small, sterile needles, creating tiny channels that trigger the skin’s natural healing process. This healing process promotes the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that are essential for maintaining healthy, youthful-looking skin.

Who can benefit from microneedling for hands?

Anyone looking to improve the appearance of their hands can benefit from microneedling. This treatment is especially helpful for people who have:

  1. Thin or crepey skin on their hands
  2. Fine lines and wrinkles on their hands
  3. Sun-damaged skin on their hands
  4. Age spots or hyperpigmentation on their hands
  5. Scarring or uneven texture on their hands

Microneedling can also be a useful treatment option for people who have had other cosmetic procedures on their hands sucha as laser treatments. By stimulating collagen production, microneedling can enhance the results of these procedures and prolong their effects.


How does micro needling work on the hands?

Microneedling for the hands is a minimally invasive procedure that can be performed in under an hour. Here’s what to expect during the procedure:

  1. Numbing cream will be applied to the hands to minimise discomfort.
  2. A handheld device with tiny needles will be used to create small punctures in the skin’s surface.
  3. The device will be moved across the surface of the hands, creating multiple punctures that will trigger the skin’s natural healing response.
  4. After the procedure, a soothing cream or serum may be applied to the hands to promote healing.

The procedure typically takes around 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area. Patients may experience some redness and swelling after the procedure, but this typically subsides within a few days.

Microneedling for hands is a safe and effective treatment option for anyone looking to improve the appearance of their hands. By stimulating collagen production and promoting the skin’s natural healing process, microneedling can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots, and restore a more youthful, radiant look to your hands.
