Microneedling is all about stimulating collagen production by using the body’s natural healing process in response to tissue injury. Our ability to produce new collagen decreases over time, and microneedling can help. The procedure involves using a specific tool with fine hair-like needles to create tiny pinpricks in the surface of the skin. These “micro-injuries” cause the body to create new healthy collagen to repair the pinpricks.
Benefits of microneedling include improved skin texture, less visibility of pores, reduction in fine lines, increased glow and for some patients even reduction in unwanted pigmentation or melasma. Microneedling “bridges the gap” between microdermabrasion and laser resurfacing. For patients wanting real results with little to no risk or downtime, this is the procedure for you!
Most patients will experience minor redness and an overall feeling of “tightness” in the treated area for a few days after the procedure. The great news is that microneedling can be performed on all skin types!
Microneedling works best if performed in a series as each treatment encourages new areas of the skin to stimulate collagen production. Since most patients will experience some sensitivity to the area treated after each procedure, we highly recommend a good sunscreen as part of your post care for this procedure.
Platelet Rich Plasma, commonly referred to as PRP, may be added to your microneedling treatment for further collagen stimulation.
