Microneedling rejuvenates aging, discolored, and scarred skin by creating a series of micro injuries to replace damaged cells with fresh, new cells. The superficial injuries created by microneedling stimulate your body’s natural healing response, which causes the production of collagen and elastin to increase while leaving your complexion looking healthier and younger.

As microneedling isn’t light-based or invasive, virtually everyone is a candidate for this procedure. Candidates experience insecurities and dissatisfaction due to the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, facial scarring, skin texture irregularities, stretch marks, and enlarged pores.
Microneedling is the process of creating tiny, superficial wounds in the top layer of skin to break the blood vessels just below the surface. After a topical anesthetic is applied, a handheld microneedling device passes over the treatment area to create the wounds. The body then naturally releases platelets and growth factors to encourage the production of collagen and elastin that start to repair the skin. Once this occurs, the damaged cells are replaced by new, healthy cells. Multiple treatments are recommended to treat larger areas or more significant scarring and wrinkling.
Recovery and Results
Redness is common after your microneedling procedure. This redness can be apparent for one to two days; however, makeup can be applied immediately to cover this discoloration. You should stay out of the sun for at least 24 hours and practice good sun protection afterward to ensure your best results. Ice packs and cold compresses help to soothe any skin discomfort.
Once the redness dissipates, you will begin to notice tighter, firmer, and more evenly toned skin. With repeated treatments, microneedling will improve your skin’s texture and tone and reveal a more youthful glow.
