Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure designed to rejuvenate the skin and improve the surface by reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, acne scars, and expression lines. As an FDA-approved procedure, Microneedling promotes the skin’s natural ability to heal and repair itself. As we all know, our skin will heal over time when it encounters a cut or abrasion. The Microneedling process incurs “micro-injuries” to the skin using tiny needles in the device. The skin’s response activates naturally to begin healing the “wounds” and at the same time will rejuvenate any lines or wrinkles in the way.

The Microneedling Procedure

Microneedling is performed in a completely safe environment using sterile, disposable needle tips. This device is able to provide effective treatment in complex places on the face, such as around the eyes and nose. Before the needles ever touch skin, however, a topical anesthetic cream is applied to reduce any discomfort, which is minor at most.

During Microneedling, the blood-derived growth factors and platelet-rich plasma, taken directly from the patient themselves, and other topicals may be administered to promote healing. Overall, the entire process takes about 45 minutes to complete. Within four weeks of treatment, new, healthy skin will appear at the site and continue to produce collagen for up to six months.

Optimal Care Routines for Post-Microneedling

The post-treatment care process for microneedling is relatively simple and straightforward. There are just three simple instructions for patients after their treatment:

  • If the skin in the treatment area is sensitive, hydrocortisone cream, aloe, and Advil can be administered.
  • It’s important to use a gentle cleanser, moisturizer, and sunblock for up to 48 hours after the procedure.
  • For at least 48 hours, do not use corrective or exfoliating products.
