Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

As far as skin treatments go, microneedling is one of the least invasive and most effective in treating a wide variety of common skin concerns. 

The needles on the microneedling device make small holes evenly across your skin’s surface, reaching just deep enough into your tissues to stimulate your skin’s healing process. In response, your tissues produce collagen fibers to add structure and elasticity to your skin. 

You can enhance the effects of your microneedling procedure by adding:

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is an abundant substance in your body. It helps your skin stay hydrated and lubricated. On the outside, it wards off dryness and makes your skin look smooth. When you apply it after microneedling, it gets quickly absorbed through the microchannels.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

PRP is made up of platelet cells, growth factors, and liquid plasma from your own blood. The platelets and growth factors work together to repair your tissues in the case of an injury and work similarly when injected or applied topically after microneedling.

What does my skin look like after microneedling?

Microneedling revives your skin by healing scars and blemishes while adding structure with new collagen fibers. Overall, you may consider microneedling to help treat:

  • Acne scars
  • Dullness
  • Dryness
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Large pores
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

It’s important to remember that no procedures or products can reverse time or give your skin total flawlessness. You’ll still see a notable improvement in its overall appearance and likely be eager to display your results.

Can anyone get microneedling?

Microneedling’s status as a minimally invasive procedure makes it safe for many patients with imperfect skin. 

To be sure that microneedling is the right treatment to improve your skin, you’ll consult with a provider at ABC Aesthetics before starting treatment. Candidates for microneedling typically:

  • Aren’t pregnant
  • Don’t have active skin conditions, like eczema or acne
  • Don’t scar easily
  • Dislike the current state of their skin
  • Are willing to undergo several procedures for optimal results

Microneedling yields satisfying results for all skin tones. If you’re interested in combining microneedling with hyaluronic acid or PRP, you may need to answer additional questions about the state of your health and skin type.
