WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?

Microneedling is a non-invasive medical treatment that can enhance and stimulate collagen growth in facial skin. Using a safe, FDA-approved handheld device called the SkinPen, tiny, hairlike needles penetrate the top layer of the skin to create micro-injuries. This activates the body’s natural healing response, which leads to the production of collagen and skin restoration. Some patients see benefits such as skin tightening within a week following the first session. Over time and during a series of treatments recommended by the doctor, microneedling will ultimately reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars and surgical scars, stretch marks, and other blemishes.

WHAT CAN YOU TREAT WITH MICRONEEDLING?

Microneedling is used primarily on the face for the improvement of skin texture (rough, crepey skin) fine lines, acne scars, and stretch marks.



WHAT TO EXPECT AT A MICRONEEDLING APPOINTMENT

Microneedling is an outpatient procedure that does not require general anesthesia or surgery, so there need not be any concerns about a long recovery. The treatment begins with cleansed skin and a topical numbing cream to ensure your comfort. After the topical anesthetic has time to take effect, we will use the SkinPen to trace the surface of your face (or specific treatment area), producing several tiny injuries to the top layer of the skin. This triggers a healing and restorative response from your skin. In turn, your skin begins to produce new collagen for the affected area, leading to a new and healthy glow. 



WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR MICRONEEDLING?

Microneedling is a procedure that brings many restorative properties. If you have a history of healthy facial skin and tissues, you are likely a good candidate for microneedling. To ensure that you are qualified, be clear with your doctor about all conditions or prior procedures you have received.

DOES MICRONEEDLING HURT?

Most people are not bothered by it at all. Once the numbing cream has done its job, you shouldn't feel much at all. The treatment is not painful, and we make every effort to ensure you're comfortable -- ice, numbing, and Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) are all available to make you feel less anxious.

WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF MICRONEEDLING?

After the treatment, your skin will look sunburned, but much of the redness and tenderness should subside within 24 hours. You can return to your normal activities immediately but avoid heavy makeup and sweating for the first day or two. It’s crucial to apply sunscreen that contains physical blockers, like zinc oxide or titanium oxide, following your treatment.

MICRONEEDLING RECOVERY AND AFTERCARE

As previously mentioned, the procedure is not highly invasive and will not require an intense recovery period or time away from your daily life. The effects of the procedure are usually very minor, resulting in skin redness and sensitivity, much like that of a sunburn. We will provide you with all of the necessary ointments to maximize your comfort and aid in the healing process. We also recommend you stay well-hydrated during your recovery and always wear sun protection. Between treatments, we also ask that you refrain from using any at-home microneedling devices. It’s very easy to misuse them and end up damaging your skin’s texture.



MICRONEEDLING RESULTS

Your skin will recover and heal relatively quickly, but the treatment's effects and benefits will become increasingly more noticeable over time. Collagen production is a gradual process, so follow-up procedures can be helpful and necessary, depending on your condition. Usually, patients need three treatments spaced four weeks apart. Some notice immediate benefits, such as skin tightening, within a week. Generally, results will be noticeable about six weeks after the first treatment but will peak around six weeks following the last treatment.

MICRONEEDLING WITH PRP

Unlike some other treatments at Esthetics Center, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is not a product that is pulled off the shelf and injected into the face or body. Instead, we draw a small amount of your blood, spin it in our centrifuge at 3,500 RPM, extract the concentrated PRP, and apply it to the area being treated. Treatments utilizing PRP stimulate the body’s healing process to regenerate and restore lackluster and damaged skin and boost the reparative process for wounds and injuries. As far as delivery goes, PRP can be injected or microneedled into the skin.

Plasma contains red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Platelets promote growth and healing, especially in the presence of injury. By separating the platelets and concentrating them in the area of an injury (in the case of microneedling) or directly into the tissue, your body responds by activating the natural healing process, which includes building collagen and elastin.

If we are also using PRP during your microneedling session, we will draw your blood once we are ready to begin the treatment and let it spin while we prepare the treatment site. Once the PRP is extracted and ready, we will begin the microneedling. This part of the treatment takes only a few minutes, and shortly after we finish, you will be free to go with just a few simple instructions for aftercare.



PROS AND CONS OF MICRONEEDLING TREATMENTS

Pros:

  • Microneedling with SkinPen is minimally invasive with as little as 12-24 hours of downtime and minimal aftercare. 
  • SkinPen is safe for all skin types, unlike laser treatments that target pigment and can damage darker skin. 
  • Microneedling treatments draw on your body’s natural healing process to rejuvenate and regenerate cells. Multiple needle sizes can be used for a customized approach to a range of skin concerns.
  • Coupled with PRP, microneedling can supercharge the skin’s healing response to address multiple skin concerns and build collagen.

Cons

  • Side effects are similar to a sunburn for 24 hours -- redness, tenderness, and mild swelling.
  • Some other procedures, such as dermal fillers and laser resurfacing, might show more immediate results, but microneedling is excellent for those seeking long-lasting, natural results.
  • Microneedling is not recommended if you have active acne or take certain acne medication.
  • A series of 3-6 treatments may be needed for optimal results.
