What is microneedling?

Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that involves using a device equipped with fine needles to create controlled micro-injuries (tiny punctures) in the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the skin's natural healing process, triggering the production of collagen and elastin.

According to the American Academy of Dermatology Association (AAD), the skin’s healing process after microneedling can help reduce the appearance of scars and dark spots and improve skin elasticity.

Benefits of microneedling:

Microneedling has gained popularity for its growing list of benefits. It is said to rejuvenate and plump the skin with minimal discomfort and downtime, and it can be adjusted to fit each person’s needs.

Microneedling can improve:

  • the appearance of scars, including acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles
  • enlarged pores
  • the appearance of hyperpigmentation, or dark spots
  • uneven skin tone
  • skin elasticity
  • the appearance of stretch marks
  • hair growth in people with alopecia

Preparing for microneedling

Before the procedure, you need to stop taking certain medications, such as ibuprofen and avoid using agents that may increase your skin’s sensitivity before your microneedling appointment. This may include topical retinoids and exfoliants.

What to expect after microneedling

You may notice slight redness within the first 24 hours of the procedure. This is a natural response to the micro-injuries made by the needles in your skin.

A post-care kit is imperative to promote optimal results and avoid any possibility of complications.

After microneedling, your skin works fairly quickly to rejuvenate  new tissue and you may see results within a  week. However, multiple sessions spaced several weeks apart to achieve and maintain the results. We will work with you to develop a plan of action based on your individual goals. Multiple sessions spaced several weeks apart are often recommended to achieve optimal results.
