Microneedling Q & A

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a procedure where several sterile tiny needles penetrate the skin to create tiny injuries. This prompts your body’s natural healing powers, creating new collagen and generating other new skin tissue.

What can Microneedling improve?

  • Acne Scarring
  • Large Pore
  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Uneven Pigmentation
  • General Texture Irregularities
  • Uneven Skin Tone


What is the pre-procedure for Microneedling?

Before the procedure we will make sure all makeup and moisturizer is removed from the area to be treated. 

  • The clinical staff will wipe the area to be treated with alcohol
  • Then topical numbing will be applied for 45 minutes
  • Then the clinical staff will wipe the numbing off with alcohol before proceeding

 

How long does the procedure last?

The procedure lasts approximately 30 minutes.


What does Microneedling feel like?

Since you are numbed you are as comfortable as possible. Most of our patients say they don’t feel anything, except a small vibration from the Microneedling Pen.


What is the post-procedure for Microneedling?

After your treatment we will apply a calming serum to soothe your skin. There is no major downtime after Microneedling. You will more than likely experience redness, but will subside within a few days after your treatment. It is important to make sure to apply sunscreen to protect your skin during this time.

 

What therapies compliment Microneedling?

Microneedling creates so many channels into the deeper layers of your skin, adding therapies is a great opportunity to deliver therapeutic products to the treated area where they can do the most good. You can use Microneedling with:

  • Platelet-rich Plasma: PRP is a solution made from your blood. We spin the blood in a centrifuge until a highly concentrated solution of plasma and platelets remain. PRP contains growth factors that promote blood clothing and proteins that promote cellular growth. 
  • Hyaluronic Acid: Your skin naturally contains hyaluronic acid, which works to make your skin plumper and more full. The levels as we age naturally decrease, so this a great way to restore a more youthful appearance.
