What is nanoneedling?

Nano needling is a non invasive procedure that involves the use of a pen-style modality and nano-tips. It goes by various names, including Microchanneling, Nano infusion, or Nano exfoliation. It uses very tiny cones which are formed of stainless steel or silicone that does not penetrate the skin but does help with resurfacing and product infusion.

Nanoneedling can also improve skin texture, boost hydration, and address any signs of skin ageing. The most visible change in the skin is a hydrating glow.

How Does nanoneedling differ From Microneedling?

While both nanoneedling and microneedling share the goal of boosting skin rejuvenation, they differ in several key aspects:

Depth of penetration:

    • Nanoneedling: Uses tiny silicone cones or tips that only penetrate the uppermost layer of the skin (epidermis), creating “nano-channels” for better product absorption. It’s considered a cosmetic, painless procedure with no downtime.
    • Microneedling: Utilizes actual fine needles that reach deeper into the dermis, triggering collagen and elastin production. This offers more dramatic results for deeper wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks, but can cause mild discomfort and temporary redness.

Needle type:

    • Nanoneedling: Doesn’t involve real needles, instead using microscopic, hair-like cones that cause minimal to no discomfort.
    • Microneedling: Uses tiny needles of varying lengths, depending on the desired treatment depth. Numbing cream is often applied beforehand due to potential discomfort.


    • Nanoneedling: Primarily focuses on boosting product absorption and improving overall skin tone, texture, and glow. It’s great for fine lines, acne scars, and enlarged pores.
    • Microneedling: Targets deeper concerns like wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation. It also promotes collagen and elastin production for firmer, thicker skin.

Risks and side effects:

    • Nanoneedling: Generally considered safe with minimal risk of bruising, bleeding, or infection.
  • Microneedling: Potential side effects include temporary redness, swelling, bruising, and bleeding depending on needle depth and individual skin sensitivity.

What skincare benefits does Nanoneedling offer?

Nanoneedling offers a range of skincare benefits thanks to its gentle approach and ability to improve product absorption. Here are some of the key benefits:

Improved complexion:

    • Hydration boost: Nano-channels created by the cones enhance the penetration of serums and moisturizers, leading to plumper, dewier skin.
    • Exfoliation: Gentle removal of dead skin cells promotes brighter, smoother texture and reduces clogged pores.
    • Glowing appearance: Increased product absorption and cell turnover can result in a healthy, radiant complexion.

Reduced imperfections:

    • Fine lines and wrinkles: While not as dramatic as microneedling for deeper wrinkles, nanoneedling can subtly soften fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen production.
    • Acne scars: The exfoliating and cell-renewing properties can help improve the appearance of shallow acne scars.
    • Enlarged pores: Nano-channels help control sebum production and reduce the appearance of enlarged pores.

Enhanced skin health:

    • Increased circulation: The treatment can stimulate blood flow, giving the skin a healthy flush and promoting nutrient delivery.
    • Enhanced product efficacy: Serums and other topical products penetrate deeper and work more effectively.
    • Overall rejuvenation: By stimulating cell turnover and collagen production, nanoneedling can contribute to a firmer, more youthful appearance.

Additional benefits:

    • Gentle and painless: Unlike microneedling, nanoneedling doesn’t involve actual needles, making it painless and suitable for sensitive skin.
    • Minimal downtime: You can resume your usual activities almost immediately after a treatment.
    • Safe and effective: When performed by a qualified professional, nanoneedling is a safe and effective treatment for most skin types.

It’s important to note that the results of nanoneedling are gradual and may vary depending on individual skin concerns and treatment schedule. However, it can be a valuable tool for improving overall skin texture, tone, and radiance.

If you’re considering nanoneedling, it’s crucial to consult with a dermatologist or aesthetician to discuss your skin concerns and determine if this treatment is right for you. They can also recommend the optimal treatment frequency and products to maximize the results.

Nanoneedling FAQs

Nanoneedling, also known as nano, is a non-invasive microneedling treatment that uses nano cartridges to create nano channels on the skin’s epidermis. This technique allows serum to penetrate the skin, promoting collagen and elastin production to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Nanoneedling utilizes microscopic punctures to create nano channels in the epidermis, allowing skincare products and active ingredients to be delivered to the dermis. This process enhances the skin’s ability to absorb the serum, promoting collagen production and addressing various skin concerns.

Nanoneedling is generally suitable for most skin types, but it is important to consult a professional skin expert to determine if this skin treatment is right for your particular skin condition.

Nanoneedling offers several benefits, including improved skin texture, reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, enhanced skincare product penetration, and increased collagen and elastin production. Additionally, it is a non-invasive procedure with minimal downtime.
