Have you noticed your skin looking dull, uneven, and less firm? Effects of aging can lead to loss of collagen. Microneedling restores youthful collagen levels for skin that looks smooth and even. This rejuvenating treatment has minimal downtime and can treat many skin concerns.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is also called collagen induction therapy since it increases your skin’s collagen production. This treatment uses tiny, sterilized needles to create microchannels in the skin, triggering your body’s healing and repair processes. Microneedling can treat skin laxity, textural irregularities, pigmentation issues, and signs of aging.
How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling uses a handheld applicator that creates microchannels surrounded by areas of intact skin. These tiny channels begin to heal almost immediately. Cells in the deeper layers of the skin start producing collagen as part of the healing process. As your skin heals, it brings healthy new cells to the surface for a brighter, more even appearance.
How Long After Microneedling Can I Wear Makeup?
Immediately after microneedling, you may have some minor redness and sensitivity. While you might be tempted to cover any redness with makeup, you should not apply anything to your face except sunscreen. We recommend waiting 24 to 48 hours before applying makeup.
Use gentle cleansers and avoid peels or scrubs for at least a week. Continue to use sunscreen daily and avoid excessive sun exposure, since UV rays will damage your new collagen and make your results fade more quickly.
What is Microneedling With PRP?
Microneedling opens channels in your skin that let it fully benefit from topical treatments. We offer microneedling with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) extracted from a sample of your blood. PRP speeds the healing process and enhances the development of new skin cells. Microneedling gives PRP access to deeper layers of the skin so it can reach the active, growing skin cells.

What Results Will I See With Microneedling?
You will usually need a series of microneedling sessions to achieve your desired results. Most people benefit from two to three treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. Some people may need as many as eight sessions, especially if they have deep textural issues.
You may start to see improvements in as little as a week or two. However, complete results will take several months to develop as your skin adds new collagen. Your results can last up to a year, especially with good skincare and consistent sun protection. Many people schedule yearly sessions to maintain their results.
Am I a Good Candidate for Microneedling?
Almost anyone makes a good candidate for microneedling. Unlike many lasers, it works safely on all skin types and tones. Good candidates for microneedling want to rejuvenate their skin and restore youthful collagen levels. Microneedling may not be the right treatment if you have a skin infection or a tendency to form abnormal scars.
