Microneedling Q & A
What happens during a microneedling session?
Microneedling begins with thoroughly cleaning your skin and if requested, applying a topical numbing cream. The treatment itself involves running a specialized dermaroller instrument over your treatment area — usually your face, neck, or décolleté.
This dermaroller contains dozens of micro-fine needles and with each pass over your skin, it creates tiny wounds. Though small, these wounds are very real, and your body realizes it.
Your brain gets a panic signal that an injury has occurred and in turn, begins an entire cascade of events that force your skin to start healing. Cells quickly start regenerating and forming new connective tissues, most notably collagen.
What can microneedling do for my skin?
Microneedling is one of the most natural ways to harness the power of your body’s ability to heal itself. A single treatment reverses the effects of aging with no injections, no lasers, and no invasive surgeries.
Microneedling treatments offered at Dadeland Dermatology Group are beneficial for replenishing your skin’s more youthful beauty. Your customized microneedling treatment can:
- Smooth out skin texture
- Minimize enlarged pores
- Soften lines, grooves, and wrinkles
- Smooth out scars, including acne scars
- Make age spots, brown spots, and sun damage fade
Additionally, as new collagen fibers form, they perfectly stack on top of one another, leaving you with incredibly firm, dense, tight skin.
How long does it take to see results from microneedling?
After the first few days, you start noticing redness and inflammation subsiding. In most cases, brighter, fresher, healthier skin starts to shine through within two to three weeks, with continuing improvements day after day.
It’s important to follow Dr. Rodriguez’s post-microneedling instructions carefully. After all, you’re going to have hundreds of tiny pin pricks all over your face, and you need to keep the treated area clean to prevent irritation. Plus, because your skin is going to be overly sensitive to the sun, it’s essential to wear sunscreen every single day after having microneedling.
