Microneedling: Latest beauty buzz that's a big hit with Kourtney Kardashian

Kourtney Kardashian is the latest celebrity to reveal she uses microneedling as part of her beauty regime, after posting a Snapchat video from Dr Jason Diamond's Beverly Hills clinic.

The 38-year-old certainly has enviable skin, but what is this, frankly terrifying-sounding anti-ageing treatment, and should we all be booking in to have it done?

"It has become the biggest buzz in beauty in the States, because the technology is so unique," says Jamie O'Banion, co-founder of Beauty Bioscience, which has just launched its GloPro MicroStimulation Facial Tool in the UK. "There's nothing else like it."

We quizzed Jamie to find out what you need to know about microneedling and how you can try it at home without paying Hollywood prices for the privilege.

What is microneedling?

"To rejuvenate the skin, we have to wound the skin," Jamie says, comparing the treatment to a gardener aerating a lawn. By rolling a roller covered in hundreds of tiny needles (they're 0.3cm long) over the skin, it "creates thousands of micro-injuries in the skin that triggers a healing response. Then, the new skin that evolves is gorgeous - it doesn't have spots, it doesn't have wrinkles, it's beautiful and firm".

Finally, mechanical roller massage therapy plays a role in reducing cellulite. Combined with laser heating, the rollers exert pressure on the skin and subcutaneous tissues, and the suction draws a fold of skin and fat into the vacuum space. This deep kneading and stretching of the body tissues also improves the blood flow and reinforces removal of FFA. To summarize, both wavelengths are implicated in producing other beneficial therapeutic effects discussed earlier: - Improved local ...
