What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure designed to enhance the texture and appearance of our skin. 

Using a specialized device with tiny needles, the skilled dermatologists create micro-injuries on the skin's surface. This controlled process stimulates the body's natural collagen and elastin production, promoting skin regeneration.

During the microneedling procedure, your dermatologist gently glides the device over the targeted areas, creating microscopic channels. These channels activate the body's healing response, triggering collagen and elastin synthesis. As the skin heals, it becomes smoother, firmer, and more youthful.

Patients often wonder about the level of discomfort associated with microneedling. Rest assured, the team prioritizes your comfort. Before the procedure, a topical numbing cream is applied to minimize any potential discomfort. Most individuals describe the sensation as mild, with little to no pain during the treatment.

What are the benefits of microneedling?

Microneedling offers many benefits for those who want to enhance their skin without the downtime associated with more invasive procedures. It helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars, leading to smoother and softer skin texture. By stimulating collagen production, microneedling also promotes skin elasticity, resulting in a more youthful and radiant complexion.

Another benefit of microneedling is that it is suitable for all skin types, making it an excellent option for everyone!

How long do the results of microneedling last?

The longevity of microneedling results can vary, but many patients experience noticeable improvements after just one session. For optimal and lasting results, a series of treatments may be recommended.

Following the procedure, many patients notice an immediate glow and improved skin texture. However, the full benefits develop gradually as collagen production continues over the following weeks.

Periodic maintenance sessions may be recommended to prolong the results. Your dermatologist will create a personalized treatment plan based on your skin's unique needs and goals. With regular maintenance and care, the effects of microneedling can last for months, providing a lasting impact on your skin's health and appearance.
