Microneedling is a nonsurgical treatment that uses small needles to prick the skin. The purpose of treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin.
Microneedling works by encouraging your skin to make more collagen. The idea is that pinpricks from the procedure cause slight injury to the skin and that the skin responds by making new collagen-rich tissue.
This new skin tissue is, in turn, more even in tone and texture. It’s normal for the skin to lose collagen via age or injury. By encouraging the skin to make new tissue, there may be more collagen to help make the skin firmer, too.
During the procedure, your doctor makes small pricks under the skin with a pen-like tool. The pinpricks are so small that you likely won’t notice them after the procedure. Your esthetician will move the tool evenly across your skin so that the new skin that rejuvenates will be even, too.
Before getting started, your esthetician will use a topical anesthetic to reduce the chances of pain. This is done before your treatment. The actual microneedling process takes approximately 30 minutes.
Your esthetician may then apply a serum or calming treatment. In total, you can expect to be at the office for an hour at least.
Microneedling is most often used on your face to target:
In addition to facial concerns, microneedling is sometimes used to treat stretch marks in other areas of the body.
One study found that microneedling was effective for stretch marks on the thighs and abdominal area when combined with fillers.
Scarring on other body parts may also be treated with this procedure. However, microneedling is primarily used on the face.
Like all cosmetic procedures, microneedling isn’t without risk.
The most common side effect is minor skin irritation immediately following the procedure. You may also see redness for a few days. Call your esthetician immediately if you notice more severe side effects, such as:
You may not be an ideal candidate for microneedling if you:
Ask your esthetician to determine if you are a good candidate for microneedling.
Microneedling isn’t invasive like plastic surgery, so the recovery time is minimal. Most people require very little downtime, if any at all.
You may notice skin irritation and redness within the first few days following the procedure. This is a natural response to the small “injuries” made by the needles in your skin.
You can go back to work or school after the procedure if you’re comfortable. Some people apply camouflaging makeup during the first few days as the redness dissipates.
Your skin will also be more sensitive to the sun, so sunscreen is a must.
After microneedling, your skin works fairly quickly to rejuvenate new tissue.
In theory, you should see wonderful results within only a couple of weeks.
