As a medical-grade state-of-the-art precision tool, microneedling is a unique way to treat fine lines on the face. Used for both men and women, this multifunctional procedure is a non-invasive way to get rid of acne scars, wrinkles, crows feet and more. Most commonly used to reduce the visual presence of scarring on the face, microneedling can be used anywhere on the body.
Microneedling effectively stimulates the production of collagen in your skin, improving the appearance and giving you a natural vibrancy. Treating the area of application, and creating elastin, you can expect your face to look rejuvenated in just a few procedures.
Because some areas of scarring may be more sensitive than others, we will apply a topical numbing agent to the treated area before beginning. After your procedure, your skin may appear to be red; this is normal and will clear up within 48 hours.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive med spa procedure that involves the use of a small mechanized device that pierces tiny holes in the surface of your skin. This treatment was designed to trigger the body’s natural wound-healing response, thereby stimulating an increase in collagen and elastin production. As a result, patients experience softer, smoother skin and a more youthful appearance.
Is the Procedure Painful?
Microneedling is meant to be quick and painless, however, every patient is different and experiences varying degrees of discomfort. Additionally, our aestheticians will apply a topical numbing agent to reduce discomfort during your treatment.
Is There Any Downtime?
No. A microneedling procedure does not require any downtime. You may notice some pinkness and slight swelling on your skin immediately following your treatment, but this should subside quickly — over the course of two-to-four days. Every patient is different, so healing time is dependent on the level of skin damage and the depth of the personalized treatment to address your needs.
What Types of Skin Conditions Benefit from Microneedling?
This popular restorative treatment is an ideal solution for virtually any skin condition. Many patients get microneedling for these common conditions:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin folds and loose skin
- Large pores
- Acne scars
- Sun spots
- Uneven skin tones
- Surgical scars
- Stretch marks
Does Microneedling Enhance Facial and Skincare Products?
Microneedling creates tiny holes on the surface of your skin, which enables the skin to more effectively absorb skincare products like creams, serums, and lotions, especially those which contain hyaluronic acid and vitamin C. Microneedling allows these products to penetrate deeper into the skin, which can improve your skin’s texture and appearance over time.
Can I Combine Microneedling with PRP?
Yes! At Vibe MedSpas, we want to help our patients achieve the healthiest skin possible. Combing a microneedling treatment with PRP therapy (platelet-rich plasma) may heighten the effectiveness of your treatment. The PRP can be injected via the microholes created by the microneedling pen, thereby reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, surgical scars, and more. What’s more, PRP with microneedling can enhance collagen production, reduce healing time, and add even more radiance to your complexion.
What Should I Expect After a Microneedling Treatment?
After your microneedling treatment, you may experience the following:
- Pinkness or redness
- Mild swelling and irritation
- Quick healing time — typically, about two-to-four days
- We strongly recommend wearing sunscreen after your treatment
- Can apply makeup after 24 hours (mineral-based makeup is suggested and apply makeup with clean brushes — don’t use your fingers.)
- Improved appearance and texture right away
- Skin texture and appearance continues to improve for several weeks to months
- Softer, smoother, more voluminous appearance
