The skin under the eyes is some of the most thin and delicate skin on the body. For this reason, many deal with undereye hollows, darkness, wrinkles, and undereye bags.

If you are dealing with one of these undereye aesthetic concerns, rest assured you are not alone.

Microneedling is a popular non-invasive aesthetic procedure that recruits the body’s own healing process to achieve outstanding aesthetic outcomes.

How can under eye microneedling work for your concerns? Keep reading to find out more.

Key Takeaways:

  • Microneedling is safe, effective, and noninvasive for a variety of undereye concerns
  • What to expect during a microneedling session of the under eyes
  • Downtime, recovery, and other logistics you need to know for undereye microneedling

Why do you need under-eye microneedling?

A microneedling pen is an electric device operated by a trained professional.

The microneedling pen has many small, thin needles at the tip that move in and out of the skin rapidly, creating small micro-punctures.

The microtrauma that the microneedling pen creates helps stimulate the local immune system. Everyone has an immune system that helps make wound healing happen.

The magic of microneedling happens when the immune system lays down collagen in the area that was treated.

Collagen is a structural protein in the skin that provides firmness and elasticity to the skin.

As mentioned above, the skin under the eye is among the thinnest skin on the body. For this reason, it is more vulnerable to aging from photodamage (UV light), genetics, and lifestyle factors.

Fine lines and wrinkles tend to strike this area with age due to how delicate the undereyes are.

Do you deal with dark under eyes, hollowing, bags, or wrinkles?

According to the National Library of Medicine, you may benefit from microneedling due to the collagen-inducing effect of microneedling in the skin of the undereyes.

As more collagen is deposited in the skin from microneedling, the undereye skin becomes thicker and firmer.

Thicker and firmer skin in the undereye area means a reduction in wrinkles, darkness, bags, and hollowing.

What To Expect During Undereye Microneedling

Your first question may very well be: Does microneedling hurt? Great question!

A local anesthetic is used before microneedling to completely numb the area. This cream must sit on the skin for a short period before the numbing effect takes over.

After the numbing agent has set in, the procedure is completely comfortable.
