Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that can deliver outstanding results across a wide range of common skin conditions. It is quickly becoming one of the most popular aesthetic treatments available, especially among people who want noticeable improvements without the side effects and recovery time associated with invasive plastic surgery procedures. 

Microneedling works by creating hundreds of tiny channels in the outer layers of your skin. Your body perceives each of these channels as a micro-injury and launches a healing response. New blood vessels are produced to nourish the skin, and new collagen is also created, which serves to smooth and soften away lines and wrinkles. 

The treatment can be performed using a non-motorized handheld device covered in sterile treatment needles. A more common approach is to use a microneedling treatment platform that delivers carefully controlled micro punctures.  

What skin issues can microneedling treat?

Microneedling stimulates your skin in numerous ways. Some of the common skin issues that this treatment can improve include:

  • Acne
  • Acne and other forms of scarring
  • Lines and wrinkles
  • General issues with skin texture and tone
  • Age spots
  • Elasticity
  • Enlarged pores

Best of all, if you suffer from more than one of these concerns, microneedling can deliver improvements without the need for multiple standalone approaches. This makes microneedling a great value. 

Is microneedling a painful process?

All this talk of micro-injuries and healing may lead you to believe that microneedling is a painful process. In reality, most people find microneedling treatments to be easily tolerable. 

A special numbing cream is applied at the beginning of your session. This reduces sensations throughout your treatment. You might feel a slight stinging or burning sensation during treatment, but there is no significant pain. 

A degree of redness, swelling, and sensitivity is possible in the days following your treatments. You can relieve any sensitivity with over-the-counter pain medications or cold compresses. 

It’s important to protect your skin from sun exposure as the healing process moves forward. Taking steps to avoid UV rays can also help extend your results. Depending on your treatment goals and how your body responds to microneedling, you may need several sessions to achieve optimal results.
