What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure in which microneedlings (very fine needles) are briefly inserted into the skin. The skin is very slightly injured when the microneedles briefly penetrate. Blood circulation is stimulated by the minimal irritation. The increased metabolic processes promote the renewal of cells and thus the regeneration of the skin. The body’s own substances, such as hyaluronic acid, elastin and collagen, are increasingly produced. They contribute to fine pores and a smooth, firm surface.

Fields of application

The procedure is used to reduce skin unevenness. This includes scars, stretch marks, cellulite, wrinkles and unevenness caused by past acne. It is also used for scalp problems, hair loss and skin discoloration. (The procedure not suitable for hair removal. Many practices that offer needling also perform methods of hair removal, such as waxing or laser treatments). Skin areas of the face, neck, décolleté, scalp, thighs and bottom can be treated.

Some stars prefer microneedling to other beauty treatments, as it stimulates the regenerative ability which improves the skin’s appearance in the long term and contributes to skin rejuvenation. Stretch marks and cellulite are fought to look crisp on bikini photos.

Wichtige Hinweise

Nicht jede Nadellänge ist für jede Anwendung geeignet. Zu Hause oder beim Kosmetiker dürfen die Nadeln maximal bis 0,3 mm tief eindringen. Tiefer reichende Behandlungen werden nur von Ärzten und Heilpraktikern durchgeführt.

Auf die Anwendung sollten Sie verzichten, wenn Sie an Rosacea, Couperose, aktivem Herpes, Ausschlägen, Warzen, aktiver Akne oder Exzemen leiden. Trockene Haut und Neurodermitis sind ebenfalls ungünstig. Liegen bei Ihnen Wundheilungsstörungen, Nervenschädigungen auf der Haut, Blutgerinnungsstörungen, Narbenkeloide, Hautkrebs oder eine vorangegangene Strahlen- oder Chemotherapie vor, darf Microneedling ebenfalls nicht durchgeführt werden. Auch in der Schwangerschaft sollte von einer Behandlung abgesehen werden. Verzichten Sie ein bis zwei Tage vor dem Microneedling auf Haarentfernung an den zu behandelnden Arealen.
Achten Sie während der Behandlung auf Hygiene. Hautareale und Geräte sollten desinfiziert werden. Das Behandlungspersonal muss Mundschutz tragen.

Microneedling Instruments


This hand-held device, on whose cylinder-like roller approx. 200 microneedlings are placed, is guided over the to be treated skin area. Due to the shape of the roller many inclined puncture channels are created. Large areas on thighs, buttocks and abdomen can be treated. For example, you can do something about your cellulite or stretch marks yourself. Unfortunately, the needle length of the Dermaroller cannot be changed. Make sure that the needles on your Dermaroller are made of surgical stainless steel. The better the quality of the instrument, the less pressure must be exerted during treatment. This leads to less pain.


This “pen” with a special needle head is guided vertically over the skin areas, whereby an electric motor performs a constant up and down movement of the needle. Compared to the Dermaroller, the dermapen allows more precise punctures through the vertical one stitch channel. Use a dermapen where the needle length is variable, several speed levels can be selected and heat pulses are emitted. This makes the punctures particularly painless.

Costs due to needling

Costs incurred depend on the device used, the type of treatment (self-treatment, cosmetic or medical needling) and additionally used skin rejuvenation care products. 30 ml of a serum with hyaluronic acid for self-treatment costs about 30 $. For instruments for home use you have to spend 100 to 200 $. Professional treatment can cost 1000 $ and more. For example, if you want to correct hair loss or thin hair, several sessions at intervals of about three months are necessary. The costs can be over 4000 $. If microneedling is necessary to remove scars from burns, the health insurance often covers the costs.
