Microneedling Q & A
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation treatment that stimulates your body's natural healing process to generate new skin cells. This treatment can improve your skin in many different ways, helping with problems that include:
- Large pores
- Sun damage
- Fine lines
- Hyperpigmentation (brown spots)
- Poor skin texture
- Irregular skin tone
- Acne scars
Microneedling can be a good treatment option if you're noticing the signs of aging but aren't interested in surgery or more complex procedures. Microneedling is performed as an outpatient procedure at Skin Deep Medical Spa and requires no downtime.
What is the microneedling process?
Your Skin Deep Medical Spa provider uses a specialized treatment device called Rejuvapen™ to create microscopic skin perforations within your skin's uppermost layers. The needle length is adjustable according to your needs.
For example, if light skin refreshing is your goal, you’ll likely need the most shallow perforations, while acne scar smoothing usually requires deeper perforations.
The perforations stimulate your body's natural repair processes, including new skin cell creation, fresh collagen growth, and new elastin production. To enhance the process further, your specialist adds topical serums that sink into the skin channels and encourage skin renewal.
Depending on your treatment goals, you can also combine microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM) treatment, as both can have remarkable skin regeneration abilities on their own.
MIcroneedling treatment can take as little as half an hour, and you can return to normal activity right away.
What can I expect from microneedling results?
Following your microneedling session, your skin starts its natural renewal process. You'll notice smoother, tighter, refreshed-looking skin within several weeks, with continued improvement for 3-6 months as your skin continues the regeneration process.
How many microneedling treatments do I need?
Most men and women have about 3-4 microneedling treatments, each a month apart, for ideal skin rejuvenation results. Your treatment plan may vary, however.
In general, if mild skin refreshing is the goal, you'll need fewer treatments. If major skin resurfacing is the goal, you may need more.
Once you’ve attained your desired results, the Skin Deep Medical Spa team typically recommends microneedling sessions once a year to maintain your results.
