Is Microneedling Safe For Skin of Color?

GlamDerm’s Dr. Lian Mack was recently featured in an article at SpotLyte to discuss whether or not Microneedling is safe for people with skin of color.

“In my office, we use hyaluronic acid gel, which gets needled into the skin while we’re doing the procedure,” says New York City-based dermatologist Dr. Lian Mack.

“When you create these channels of injury, you’re promoting blood flow to the epidermis and you’re promoting cellular turnover, which helps with pigmentation — although not as well as a resurfacing laser treatment such as the Clear + Brilliant®,” she explains.
