Microneedling Q & A

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a revolutionary skin treatment based on using tiny needles to create micro channels in the skin. As a result, microneedling process stimulates your skin’s natural ability to produce collagen, a substance that your body naturally produces to help in healing. When used cosmetically, collagen helps to plump up, firm up, and smooth out your skin.

How does Microneedling work?

Cosmetic microneedling is an automated pen-like tool with very fine needles evenly entering your skin after a topical anesthetic is applied. This process allows not only better absorbed skin treatments, such as PRF, but also stimulates your cells to generate new collagen by healing.

What results can I expect from microneedling?

It is very important to understand, that microneedling alone or used once will not achieve miracle results by giving you back lost collagen in 10-20 years. It’s a powerful tool and procedure done in a series of treatments, you will see results as natural anti-aging defense system when used with conjunction with your PRF (plasma rich fibrin) with little or no downtime and relatively low cost.

Some of the benefits you might experience from microneedling include:

  • Fewer scars
  • Smaller pores
  • Fewer sun spots
  • Fewer wrinkles and fine lines
  • Tighter skin
  • More even skin tone
  • Microneedling can give you a rejuvenated and more radiant appearance in just a few treatments.

Is it painful?

Microneedling is not painful due to topical numbing cream applied before treatment. Most patients reporting they feel slight pressure or a vibrating sensation on their skin.

How long does it takes to recover from microneedling?

There is no downtime or recovery period with microneedling. Following procedure, expect to be slightly red, flushed appearance. There is no pain following the procedure. We wouldn’t suggest microneedling right before a social event. Skin might appear exfoliating or sensitive and your skincare may need to be adjusted accordingly for the next 10 days. Many patients actually go back to work immediately after their procedure.
