Microneedling is a popular cosmetic treatment that uses tiny needles to stimulate collagen production in the skin. It is performed under general anesthesia, and patients usually feel little to no discomfort during the procedure. Patients report a noticeable reduction in the appearance of their facial skin after undergoing microneedling. In addition, they often experience more even-toned skin texture and fewer wrinkles. Microneedling has also been used to treat acne, stretch marks, acne scars, and other skin conditions.
Microneedling performs many benefits for damaged or aged facial skin by promoting collagen production and cell turnover in the dermis layer of the skin. Patients can experience these effects immediately after undergoing treatment under general anesthesia. Microneedling has also been used to treat acne scars, stretch marks, and other conditions related to aging facial skin. While still in its infancy, microneedling shows great promise for treating various dermatological conditions and may be a viable alternative to traditional treatments in the future.
Microneedling is performed using a sterile instrument with a small pin or needle attached at one end. The other end is then covered with an anesthetic cream and pressed into the patient’s skin. The depth of penetration varies based on the practitioner’s skill. The tip of the needle is then removed and replaced with a little plastic cap that produces tiny punctures on the surface of the skin. Microneedling creates tiny channels in the dermis, which allows for increased blood flow and the release of collagen proteins. Collagen is one of the proteins responsible for maintaining skin firmness and elasticity. In addition, microneedling stimulates the production of new elastin fibers, which reduce wrinkles and age spots.
Microneedling has several clinical benefits for treating various skin conditions. The treatment provides gentle trauma to damaged or sun-damaged skin without causing pain or scarring. In addition, it promotes cell turnover by stimulating new collagen production in the dermis layer of the skin. Elastin production is also promoted during microneedling as the needles break down old elasticity in the skin. A numbing agent applied at the beginning of treatment ensures that patients feel little to no discomfort during its performance.
While microneedling involves sending very small needles through your face, it can have noticeable results for those willing to try it out. Patients have described feeling like they are being electrocuted when their face is punctured by needles. However, medical experts have stated that this sensation is normal and should not deter patients from trying microneedling treatments out. Some have stated that they only feel slight prickles when their face is microneedle – presumably because their faces are already stimulated by normal facial hair growth. Regardless, patients should expect some mild discomfort from a microneedling treatment; however, most find their facial skin looks smoother afterward.
Healing after a microneedling appointment will often take up to 24 hours, while this is minimal, it can take usually around two to three days to heal for others, as it will depend extensively on the treatment.
We often advise two to three days, as it will provide your skin time to heal enough that you can go out and wear makeup, put on sunscreen, etc.
However, you are able to continue with your regular scheduled days like going to work and school immediately after the treatment. We just highly recommend that you hold off on wearing any makeup for at least 24 hours after your appointment.
