What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a relatively painless method of using tiny micro-needles to puncture the skin in order to rejuvenate the skin and improve its texture, giving you a smoother, younger-looking appearance. It accomplishes this by the stimulation of collagen synthesis in the dermis, leading to smoother, younger looking skin. It can be combined with PRP (platelet rich plasma).
Benefits of Microneedling
There can be numerous benefits of microneedling, and most patients are incredibly happy with their results. Some of the most common benefits include:
- Reduced appearance of aging, diminished fine lines and wrinkles
- Improves the appearance of scars, including acne and surgical scars
- Diminishes the appearance of stretch marks
- Stimulates new collagen growth
- Short procedure time
- No downtime
How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling makes tiny puncture wounds in the skin, tricking the immune system into kick starting the healing process. A topical anesthetic is applied to the face to ensure patient comfort before the SkinPen® is applied to the skin, making tiny puncture marks in the top layer of the skin. The healing process results in the remodeling of collagen in the treated areas.
Despite its somewhat scary name, microneedling is a relatively painless procedure and our patients report that is it comfortable. The treatment time can vary but is typically less than one hour.
The end result is firmer, smoother, younger-looking skin. Microneedling also aids in erasing fine lines and diminishing the appearance of acne scars, leaving the skin glowing and refreshed.
After your microneedling treatment your skin will be red for several hours and can take a few days to completely disappear. The redness is a normal side effect. Your skin may begin to peel in three to five days. It’s important not to scratch or peel the treated skin. Dr. Hankins will advise you on the best ways to keep it moisturized during the recovery period. We also recommend to avoid sun exposure for up to 10 days post-treatment.
