Facial Treatment

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that is used to encourage collagen production using small, sterilized needles. It may help smooth, firm, and tone skin and improve the appearance of scars, acne, and wrinkles.

Common Questions

How long does it take for microneedling to work?

  • In the days and weeks after microneedling, you might notice that your skin burns or feels tight. Some people also have dry, flaking skin that improves with moisturizer. Most people need multiple microneedling treatments, usually about 3 weeks to 8 weeks apart. It can take 3­ months to 6 months to see results.

What are the side effects of microneedling?

  • There are a few temporary side effects to be aware of with microneedling. The procedure causes short-term swelling, redness, and skin flaking, which can last for a few days. Most people can return to wearing regular makeup within a day of treatment. Skin will be more sun-sensitive after treatment, so sunscreen is also advised.

Is microneedling painful?

Microneedling does involve needles, but the pain level varies depending on each person’s pain tolerance.  Most people call microneedling “uncomfortable” but not “painful”. Some treatments are more intense than others and may cause more pain. However, the needles are so small that the pain is usually fairly mild.

How does microneedling work?

A needling device is used to penetrate the skin. This will create thousands of micro wounds. Your body responds to the wounds by producing significant amounts of collagen and elastin fibers. As a result, this will rejuvenate your face by filling in wrinkles and scars.

What skin problems are treatable by microneedling?

Microneedling has proven effective on a number of skin issues, including fine lines, acne scars, sagging skin, sun damage, stretch marks, large pores, and rough skin texture.

What should I do after microneedling?

Microneedling has a very limited recovery time, which means you can get back to your normal life quickly after treatment. You’ll want to liberally apply cream moisturizers to the affected area after treatment to soothe the agitated skin and get rid of any redness. The only things to avoid after microneedling are exercising and going to the sauna. Because your skin may be tender and more sensitive than normal after a treatment, it’s best to avoid getting sweat in the pores for 24 hours. Sweat can cause inflammation, which can make your skin red and irritated for longer. You’ll also want to stay out of direct sunlight for 24 hours if possible to protect your skin from UV radiation that can lead to further irritation.
