When it comes to best beauty treatments, microneedling is at the top of the list. It is nonsurgical, stimulates collagen, revitalizes skin tone and texture, and is safe for all skin types.

Not to mention that it has little to no downtime.

But before making the decision to undergo treatment, you likely want to know: Microneedling – How does it work?

Continue reading to learn the ins and outs of microneedling and if it’s right for you.

Microneedling – How Does It Work?

If you’re thinking about collagen induction therapy, you may be wondering: Microneedling – how does it work?

During a microneedling procedure, an automated device and a cartridge of surgical-grade needles make tiny punctures in the skin.

These microinjuries trigger a wound healing response, and the body seeks to repair the so-called damage by generating new collagen.

As a result, skin is remodeled from the inside out and becomes smoother, firmer, brighter, and more radiant.

What Can Microneedling Treat?

Microneedling can improve skin tone and texture and address a multitude of skin concerns.

It is often used to treat:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Dullness
  • Roughness
  • Unevenness
  • Enlarged pores
  • Skin laxity

How Is Microneedling Performed?

Microneedling is performed in the comfort of our office by one of our highly qualified medical aestheticians.

Before the treatment begins, a topical anesthetic is applied in order to numb the area and improve patient comfort.

Then, the microneedling device is gently glided over the skin. Needle length can be adjusted throughout the procedure to customize treatment and achieve optimal outcomes.

Following microneedling, skin may be slightly red and tender. However, these effects resolve on their own in a matter of hours to a few days, and you are free to resume most normal activities right away.
