What is Microneedling?

Microneedling with a precision tool (like the SkinPen available at Advanced Dermatology) is intended to repair stretch marks, wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and the like. Performed to stimulate the skin's natural ability to produce and form healthy collagen, microneedling can give you a more youthful appearance. This treatment works by making use of tiny needles that will create accurate but controlled damage to the skin ("micro-injuries"). Once the little punctures are made into the skin, your body will signal for the production of natural collagen to heal into a smooth and even surface. The renewed production of capillaries, collagen, and elastin will produce smoother, plumper-looking skin. Our Katy, League City, Pearland, or Sugar Land, TX offices all offer microneedling and other fantastic skin rejuvenation treatments for you to try. Schedule a consultation at Advanced Dermatology to learn more about the benefits of microneedling and ways to customize it for your skin needs and goals.

What are the Benefits of Microneedling?

There are many reasons why people choose to undergo microneedling treatment at Advanced Dermatology. It can be used to treat a variety of conditions and imperfections that make you feel self-conscious or prevent you from feeling confident in your skin. The most common benefits of microneedling include:

  • Reduced wrinkles and fine lines
  • Smoother, brighter skin tone
  • Increased skin firmness and elasticity
  • More even skin texture and tone

Am I a Candidate for Microneedling?

Microneedling safely works on all skin types and colors. You may benefit from microneedling if you have slight to moderate skin issues, like rough skin texture or low elasticity. Microneedling treatments can also reduce the appearance of scars, sun damage, stretch marks, and pores. You should be willing to wait a while before seeing the results of your microneedling treatment since the collagen and elastin will need time to have an effect on the skin, but you will have natural-looking results and gain better overall skin health in treated areas of the face, neck, hands, and chest. This noninvasive treatment requires minimal downtime and is a great option for both anti-aging and acne scar patients.

How Does Microneedling Work?

Microneedling is performed in a treatment room in about 30 – 60 minutes with a topical numbing cream. You may notice a slight buzzing sensation against your skin. After the microneedling is performed, a topical treatment, like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or a vitamin-infused serum, can be applied for deeper penetration of the nutrients into the skin. A moisturizer will be massaged in along with sunscreen since your skin will be sensitive after the treatment.

What REsults Can I Expect from Microneedling?

You may have some swelling and redness for about a day, but this should subside quickly on its own. Some may experience mild dryness or flaking for 2 – 4 days. It may take about 1 – 2 months as the collagen and elastin levels increase before you see visible improvements in the health and appearance of your skin. Book 4 – 6 maintenance treatments every 4 – 6 weeks for optimal results.

Can I combine other treatments with microneedling?

During the microneedling process, small channels are made in your skin that help other treatments to reach the deeper layers. This is why microneedling is commonly combined with special serums or platelet-rich plasma.
