What is

Whitening Microneedling?

Microneedling is a procedure where a pen-like device with tiny, fine micro needles is used to create controlled micro area of trauma in the skin. These micro-trauma stimulate the natural healing process of the skin, triggering the production of collagen and elastin. During the procedure, the microneedling device is moved backward and forward across the skin, creating tiny punctures in the skin’s outer layer to promote the production of new collagen and elastin fibers, resulting in improved skin quality, texture, and firmness. A solution containing Glutathione, Vitamin A, E and C and Tranexemic Acid is then applied to the skin to enhance the absorption through these micro punctures. Glutathione is one of the most powerful antioxidant that inhibits synthesis of melanin. Vitamin A, E and C prevents flaccidity and skin aging while promoting skin regeneration. Tranexemic Acid a potent brightening agent prevents phot-aging, acne scars and reduces hyperpigmentation and age spots.


Most patients will have minimal redness that will subside in 2-4 hours. Some will persist for 24 hours. The next day, some will get peeling of flakiness of the skin. This is because the dermis of the skin is growing faster after being awaken by the micro pores. This effect will last for 2 days. The results will come after 2 weeks.
