Microneedling was developed by Dr Michel Pistor in France in 1950. Until a few years ago it was practised primarily in France, South America and Spain. It has gained importance in recent years as some treatments can also be used in aesthetic medicine to benefit the skin.

Microneedling is a medical speciality that involves injecting microscopic quantities of natural extracts, homoeopathic agents, pharmaceuticals and vitamins into the skin. It can be used to eliminate cellulite, promote weight loss, treat ageing and sagging skin, and rejuvenate the hands and neck.

This is a cosmetic procedure and will not be covered by your medical aid.
