Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a skin treatment that uses extremely small needles to make tiny pricks in the skin. These small punctures are enough to trigger the facial skin’s healing process, spurring it to create new skin tissue and collagen.

Collagen is a protein in the skin that helps it stay strong, elastic, and hydrated. When your skin is low in collagen, you’re more likely to see acne scarring, fine lines, and wrinkles. Encouraging the skin to produce new collagen plumps and brightens it, smoothing its surface and helping it look more toned.

Does microneedling hurt?

Some patients report feeling a sensation similar to a mild sunburn, but the team at SKIN & LASER AESTHETICS ensures that your microneedling experience is a comfortable one. They can apply a topical numbing cream to your skin before treatment to minimize any possible discomfort.

What types of skin conditions does microneedling treat?

Microneedling can help with a wide array of skin conditions, including:

  • Acne scarring
  • Large pores
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun/age spots
  • Facial scarring
  • Stretch marks
  • Melasma
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Dull or inelastic skin

What is a vampire facial?

A vampire facial extends the power of microneedling even further. During this treatment, the team at SKIN & LASER AESTHETICS uses microneedling technology to inject your own platelet-rich plasma into the surface of your skin. Because your platelets are full of proteins called growth factors, this treatment kicks your skin’s production of collagen and new tissue into high gear.
