Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive aesthetic treatment that uses tiny needles to create micro-wounds on the surface of your skin that trigger your body’s natural healing processes.

In response to the wounds, your body sends more blood to the area and increases its production of collagen, an essential protein in healthy skin. Over time, the new collagen helps restore volume in the treatment area and gives your skin a healthy, youthful glow.

Dermatology & Advanced Skin Care provides microneedling treatments for adults interested in revitalizing their skin without downtime.

The board-certified dermatologists can recommend microneedling as part of your treatment plan for various skin conditions. They can also suggest a microneedling treatment to rejuvenate a dull complexion and tighten and smooth your skin.

When should I consider microneedling?

Microneedling is a treatment option for conditions that affect the health and appearance of the skin on your face. The Dermatology & Advanced Skin Care providers can use advanced microneedling techniques to address:

  • Acne scars
  • Age spots
  • Wrinkles
  • Large pores
  • Melasma
  • Sagging skin
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Uneven skin tone

The dermatologists complete a skin evaluation before recommending microneedling. Treatment is an option for people who are in overall good health and free of infections, severe acne breakouts, and chronic skin conditions like psoriasis.

What can I expect during a microneedling session?

During your microneedling session at Dermatology & Advanced Skin Care, your provider uses a roller device that contains a series of fine needles to create the micro wounds in your skin. They move the device evenly across your face to stimulate new collagen growth.

Microneedling sessions take about 30 minutes to complete. The dermatologists can also apply special serums afterward to support your skin’s healing and vibrance.

Following your microneedling treatment, your skin might be red, bruised, or swollen. These side effects are typically minor and go away on their own within a few days. Your skin will be more sensitive to the sun, so you need to wear sunscreen any time you go outside.

You should notice brighter and more youthful skin within a few weeks of treatment. The results of your microneedling session can last for several months, depending on the overall condition of your skin.
