What is Microneedling?

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, has emerged as one of the most sought-after cosmetic treatments, promising a rejuvenated and flawless complexion. Microneedling involves the use of tiny, sterilized needles in a handheld device to create controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing response, triggering collagen and elastin production through dermal remodeling. The result? A more youthful and revitalized appearance.

Versatility in Treatment

Microneedling is a versatile solution for various skin concerns, including acne scarring, surgical scars, burns, enlarged pores, wrinkles, and stretch marks. While commonly performed on the face, neck, low neckline, and arms, it can benefit any part of the body.

Unlike lasers, microneedling does not apply heat to the skin. This characteristic makes microneedling a suitable option for individuals with melasma (dark patches of skin) and hyperpigmentation, as it poses no risk of exacerbating pigmentation issues.

What to Expect During Your Microneedling Treatment

Before the procedure, an experienced DermaSpa Dermatology Provider conducts a thorough consultation to understand your concerns and goals. A topical numbing cream is applied to ensure a comfortable experience. During the treatment, tiny holes from the needles create “microchannels” that allow medicated skin care products to penetrate and absorb into the deeper layers of the skin, offering a tailored approach to individual needs.

Post-Treatment Care

Following microneedling, you can resume most activities the next day. However, precautions are essential. Avoid sun exposure, tanning beds, swimming, and strenuous activities. Steer clear of hot water, steam, heat, and harsh skin treatments. Resist the temptation to rub or pick at your face. Use a gentle soap, tepid water, and a simple moisturizer. Detailed aftercare instructions will be provided to ensure optimal healing.

Microneedling Treatment Recovery and Results

Expect some swelling, redness, and possibly bruising, which typically resolve within four to five days. Results are not instant, as the body takes time to produce collagen. Visible improvements may be noticed in two to three weeks, with marked results in four to six weeks. Individuals with acne scars may observe gradual improvements within nine months. Two to three treatments may be necessary, spaced four to six weeks apart, depending on the condition. Maintenance treatments may be recommended annually for ongoing skin rejuvenation.
