How Does It Work?

Microneedling in our office utilizes an FDA-cleared instrument engineered with 6-8 tiny needles on the tip that puncture the skin at different depths depending on the settings and the operator’s technique. There is no drag of the needles on the skin as there are with derm-rollers commonly sold on the market that can have disastrous effects on the skin. Topical numbing medication is applied for thirty minutes prior to treatment, making it a very tolerable procedure for the patient. Results from microneedling are increased by doing a series of 3-6 treatments separated by a month and in conjunction with a good skincare routine. Advanced microneedling, which creates direct channels into the dermis (the deep layer of the skin), allows for absorption of products like Exosomes, Biorevitalization, Carboxytherapy, and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) to enhance your treatment. Redness and irritation may be seen post treatment, but typically subsides within 48-72 hours.

Microneedling is most frequently used to rejuvenate the skin, treat acne scars and large pores. This treatment encourages collagen production which leads to skin smoothing and tightening. Microneedling also requires very little downtime. Microneedling is also beneficial to those with brown spots and melasma.

Microneedling is great for rejuvenation of most skin types, but can have limitations including psoriasis, eczema, active acne, or severe rosacea as it could worsen these conditions. It is not recommended for those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or on steroids.
