There is a moderate amount of scientific evidence that has been published supporting the use of microneedling. The majority of research has focussed on the success of microneedling in the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles and especially for the treatment of acne scars on the face and upper back. Good quality research as been conducted in these fields and delivered good results. More recent research has focussed on the use of microneedling for hair loss and also delivered good results. Researchers are also very excited about the use of microneedling with platelet rich plasma and have identified much greater absorption of high strength skin serums when applied to the face after treatment sessions. Indeed after making multiple microscopic holes in the skin it is much easier for powerful vitamin serums to penetrate into the skin and have a much greater effect.
