If you’re looking for a versatile, non-invasive treatment that can treat a variety of common skin concerns like fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and dull skin, microneedling may be a great choice. It activates reparative cells in your body to regenerate collagen and elastin and completely rejuvenate your appearance. When patients first find out about microneedling, they often wonder if it’s painful. Keep reading to find out.
How Microneedling Works
During a microneedling treatment, a special device featuring thin needles will glide across your skin to create a controlled wound in the upper layers of your skin. This will regenerate collagen and elastin, promote your body’s natural process of healing, and revitalize your skin.
Don’t let the needles and wound scare you because many patients report that the pain and discomfort associated with microneedling are minimal. We’ll apply a topical numbing cream to your skin before the treatment to ensure the procedure is as comfortable as possible.
After a microneedling treatment, you may notice some redness on your face. Fortunately, it will subside within a few hours. You are welcome to go about their daily activities right after a treatment session and can use gentle mineral makeup to conceal any redness. Dr. Schalit will discourage you from using any products with alpha-hydroxy acids, retinol, or Retin-A for at least 2 to 3 days after a microneedling session.
Just like most skincare treatments, microneedling requires a series of sessions to work its magic. Dr. Schalit recommends a session every 4 to 6 weeks until you are satisfied with your results. After each session, you can expect micro-injuries on your skin, which will trigger a natural healing process and eventually leave you with the smooth, beautiful skin you’ve always wanted.
Benefits of Microneedling
As we get older, we lose collagen and the youthful glow it helps create. Microneedling can increase your production of collagen so you look years younger. The treatment can also clarify your skin and reduce the appearance of scars. Lastly, microneedling can enhance your skin’s ability to absorb topical products.
