What is Microneedling?

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that can help minimize the signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles, improve the appearance of acne scars, lighten and correct pigmentation, and rejuvenate the skin for overall more even skin tone and texture.

How is microneedling performed?

Microneedling is a procedure that uses fine needles to puncture the skin and create a controlled skin injury to stimulate collagen and other growth factors in order to rejuvenate skin. The Skin Pen device is the first microneedling device cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, clinically proven to safely and effectively treat and correct skin concerns.

Is microneedling painful?

Microneedling is a minimally-invasive procedure that can be tolerated by most all patients. We apply a medical strength numbing cream for up to 30 minutes prior to the treatment which is effective in reducing or eliminating any discomfort.

How many treatments of microneedling will I need?

In order to most effectively treat and correct skin concerns, we recommend a series of 6 microneedling sessions performed every 4 weeks, so this process can take about six months to totally complete.

Can I do microneedling if I am pregnant?

It is not recommended to receive microneedling treatments while pregnant or nursing.

Are there other contraindications to microneedling?

Common contraindications for microneedling include (but are not limited to) pregnancy, breast feeding, sunburn, irritated or broken skin, herpes virus, laser hair removal photosensitizing medications such as Accutane use within the past 6 months, and use of retinols or at-home acid products within the past 48-72 hours.

Is microneedling safe for all skin types and colors?

Microneedling is not a light-based procedure, nor does it involve harsh techniques that can instigate significant inflammation of the skin. It does not significantly damage the epidermis. For these reasons, microneedling is both safe and effective for every skin type. Furthermore, microneedling is recommended as a safer treatment option for darker skin types in place of stronger laser treatments since microneedling has less risk of causing pigmentation issues.

Who is a candidate to receive microneedling?

Most all patients are good candidates for microneedling. Patients experiencing cystic and active acne/pustules will want to treat the condition before proceeding to microneedling.

Is microneedling safe?

Microneedling is safe when performed by a trained skincare professional.

What is the downtime with microneedling?

Downtime with microneedling is minimal and varies depending on each patient’s reaction and skin type/color. Most patients can expect 3-4 days of total healing time post procedure, but are back to work or school the next day with a small amount of redness to the skin. During this healing period, patients can experience redness, dryness, peeling, rough texture, and mild inflammation. It is recommended to avoid excessive sweating, strenuous exercise, sun exposure, or applying any skincare products, cleansing, and make-up to the skin for 24-48 hours post treatment to avoid an infection to the micro-wounds on the skin.

What can I expect after microneedling?

Most patients describe the immediate post-treatment period as similar to having a sunburn. Clients will experience redness, tightness, and swelling right after treatment that tends to resolve rather quickly. You can also experience some pinpoint bleeding during and immediately after the treatment.
