What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling uses a special device equipped with tiny adjustable needles to improve the texture and/or reduce concerns such as wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks. This highly customizable treatment can be tailored for your specific goals and areas of concern.

Microneedling creates “micro-injuries,” which trigger a natural healing process called dermal remodeling. This leads to the development of new, healthy skin cells that gradually replace the damaged outer layer of skin. The dermal remodeling process also stimulates increased production of collagen, an important protein for the structure and health of the skin.

What to Expect During Your Microneedling Treatment

Depending on the area you’re having treated, your microneedling treatment can take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour. Before the treatment, schedule a consultation with one of our expert estheticians. During this meeting, you’ll go over your medical history, aesthetic goals, and any questions you may have about the procedure.

No anesthesia is needed for microneedling treatment, but a topical numbing cream will likely be applied to your skin to prevent any discomfort. You’ll be able to safely drive home or back to work immediately after your treatment.

Will You Require Any Downtime After Microneedling Treatment?

No, you won’t need any downtime after microneedling and should be able to resume your routine immediately after the procedure. However, if your facial skin has been treated, you’ll want to wait at least 24 hours before applying makeup. You may also experience some mild swelling, redness, and soreness in the treated area, but these symptoms should only last a day or two.

To ensure that your skin heals properly, you should avoid the following for at least 24 hours after your treatment:

  • Strenuous exercise or physical activity
  • Swimming pools
  • Saunas
  • Anything that may cause heavy sweating

Am I a Candidate for Microneedling?

Microneedling can be an effective treatment for just about anyone dealing with cosmetic skin issues, such as hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, or scarring. While the treatment is generally a safe option for most adults, it is not recommended for women who are currently pregnant or nursing. You should also not undergo microneedling if you’re experiencing an active acne breakout or skin infection near the targeted area.

Common Questions

Does microneedling hurt?

The topical anesthetic should keep you from feeling any pain during your microneedling treatment, but you may feel some soreness in the treated area for a day or two after the procedure.

How soon will I start to see results after microneedling treatment?

Patients usually start to see improvements to the tone and texture of their skin immediately after their microneedling treatment. The full effects, however, will appear gradually, and you should see the complete results after approximately four to six weeks.

How many microneedling sessions will I need?

Every patient’s experience is unique, but for best results, most people need around four to six microneedling treatment sessions. Ideally, these sessions should be spaced about four to six weeks apart.

How long do the effects of microneedling last?

You can expect the results of your microneedling treatment to last for anywhere from a few months to a year, depending on several factors, including your genetics and skincare routine.

Is microneedling safe?

Yes, microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that’s generally considered to be very safe for patients who are in good overall health. In the hands of qualified professionals like our team at MD Beauty Lab, you can reduce the risk of any complications or unwanted side effects.
