What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a gentle, non-surgical procedure to revitalize the skin. Our medical staff use the SkinPen™, a cosmetic microneedling device with several tiny needles at the tip to assist in restoring younger-looking skin. Microchannels are created as the needles are carefully passed over the skin’s surface, stimulating the skin’s natural healing process. These microchannels are too tiny to cause discomfort or scarring. As the body registers these microchannels, new collagen (the main structural protein found in the skin) and elastic (the main protein of elastic connective tissue) are created to enhance skin smoothness and luminosity.
- Microneedling can help correct the appearance of age lines, fine lines, pigmentation, stretch marks, or even acne scars
- Microneedling is a quick and comfortable non-surgical treatment
- No recovery or downtime is required following treatment; patients can continue their day instantly
- In comparison to most laser treatments, microneedling has a lower risk of side effects
- Microneedling may be used to treat most parts of the body
What can I expect?
Based on the patient’s desired area of treatment will determine the length of the microneedling procedure. Typically, the microneedling treatment can take about 15 minutes. Some patients may experience some minor inflammation or redness after the procedure, but these side effects generally ease within 2-4 days afterward. We recommend multiple microneedling treatments so that patients can get the best out of their results.
