At least a few wrinkles, fine lines, scars, and other skin imperfections plague nearly all men and women. While some of these can be caused by external factors, many skin problems tend to appear and worsen with age. Microneedling is an effective non-surgical, laser-free option for individuals suffering from these issues.
Microneedling is a non-surgical procedure that uses tiny needles to stimulate the growth of revitalized, youthful skin. These needles create thousands of micro-injuries across the surface of the skin. While these injuries are significant enough to trigger the body’s natural healing process, they’re small enough to result in no scarring, minimal discomfort, and no downtime. As part of the healing process, the body also begins producing an extra amount of collagen and elastin. Both structural proteins are naturally produced within the skin and improve its texture, color, and luminosity.

Unlike laser treatments that involve comparatively painful procedures and substantial downtime, microneedling is quick, comfortable, and has few adverse side effects. This is because it leaves the epidermis intact, supporting the healing process and resulting in less inflammation and downtime.
An extremely diverse procedure, microneedling can be used to improve the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines, stretch marks, and pigmentation. Since microneedling devices are typically handheld and characteristically gentle, treatment can be performed on nearly any area of the body.
What Should I Expect from Treatment?
Microneedling treatments typically take 15 minutes, but can last longer depending upon the size of the area being treated. Following treatment, many patients experience some degree of redness and inflammation. Fortunately, these side effects usually fade within 2-4 days of treatment. While noticeable results are apparent after the first microneedling session, multiple sessions are recommended for patients that desire prolonged results. On average, patients attend 3-6 microneedling treatments, each spaced 4-6 weeks apart. After this initial round of treatments is completed, patients often receive touch up once a year to maintain results over time.
