What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is an increasingly popular procedure designed to help improve the appearance of your skin. During a microneedling procedure, your doctor will roll a small handheld device with needles on it, called a dermaroller, over your face, making micro-wounds under the skin. This helps to break down thick collagen under the skin and triggers the body to produce new collagen and elastin. Results from a microneedling procedure include reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and stretch marks, as well as helping even out skin tone and texture. Unlike chemical peels, microneedling does not remove the surface layer of skin. Microneedling is a great choice for anyone looking to rejuvenate their skin’s appearance!*Contact us to set up a consultation to get started towards your microneedling treatment today.

What Can I Expect During and After My Microneedling Treatment?*
During your treatment, your doctor will run the dermaroller over the area to be treated. While everyone experiences pain differently, most patients report only mild discomfort during the treatment. Pinpoint bleeding will occur, but should stop several minutes after the treatment is finished. After your treatment, your skin should feel firmer and fresher than it did. It will look like you have a sun burn for about one to two days after the procedure, and will peel for a few days after. You generally should be able to see results of collagen growth within two to three days after your treatment.*
What Do Results Look Like?*
