It’s a small device that uses fine needles to puncture the skin and create a controlled skin injury in order to stimulate the body’s own healing mechanisms. Micro needling has become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures used by practitioners all over for its anti-aging and skin rejuvenation benefits. Micro needling can treat a wide array of skin concerns to include wrinkles, fine lines, enlarged pores, pigmentation, stretch marks, acne scars, and skin texture. The best part about Microneedling is that you can safely treat all skin tones and types. This is a major advantage because not all laser treatments can be performed on all skin types.

Who is a candidate for microneedling?

Microneedling is appropriate for patients looking to improve common skin concerns that make them look or feel older. A consultation with one of our providers is essential to ensure your candidacy. We will assess your skin type, condition, and expectations to make sure that this is the best possible solution for your needs. Patients with active infections or lesions in the treatment area are not candidates for microneedling at this time. Our goal is always to provide the safest and most effective cosmetic solutions.

How Is Microneedling Performed?

A microneedling treatment is done in a private treatment room in about 30 – 60 minutes with local anesthesia or numbing cream if requested, but patients generally experience mild or no pain and discomfort. The skin being treated will be cleansed before the handpiece is evenly passed over. After the microneedling is performed, a topical treatment like PRP (platelet-rich plasma) or a vitamin-infused serum may be applied so the nutrients can penetrate deeper into the skin. A moisturizer selected for your skin type will be massaged in along with sunscreen because the treated skin will be sensitive after the treatment.

What Should I Expect after Microneedling?

Following the microneedling procedure, you might have some redness and swelling for about one day, but this should resolve on its own. It can take around 1 – 2 months as the elastin and collagen levels increase before you see visible changes in the health and appearance of your skin. You should plan to get about 4 – 6 maintenance sessions every 4 – 6 weeks at The Aesthetics Lab for the best possible outcomes and long-lasting skin benefits.

Microneedling FAQs

How much does microneedling cost?
Dr. Panchal will analyze your skin during your initial consultation and develop your unique treatment plan. After this, she can discuss your treatment costs and the procedure. The Aesthetics Lab often offers specials on skin treatment packages, so ask about current deals in your consultation.

What exactly is microneedling?
Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is a nonsurgical treatment to tighten and rejuvenate your skin. A natural fibrous protein, collagen helps keep your skin smooth, supple, and tight. Eventually, your natural supply of collagen is reduced and your skin gets less elastic and thin. Microneedling causes tiny wounds in your skin. These micro-injuries prompt your skin to generate new skin cell growth and increase collagen production. After a short recovery period, your complexion appears brighter, firmer, and healthier.

Can I combine other treatments with microneedling?
During the process of microneedling, channels are created in your skin that help other treatments penetrate the deeper layers. That's why microneedling is often combined with other skin treatments, such as vitamin-rich serums or platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Microneedling with PRP is often called a vampire facial. During your consultation, Dr. Panchal can talk about which treatments would enhance your microneedling and which can help your skin's health.
