Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

microneedlingMicroneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that helps heal skin defects and minimize age-related features like laxity. 

Another name for microneedling, collagen induction therapy, highlights the function of the treatment. Punching tiny holes in your skin with a microneedling device stimulates the growth of firming collagen within your skin.

Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center performs microneedling using SkinPen® II after applying a topical numbing agent to your skin’s surface. SkinPen II makes evenly spaced punctures in your skin to create even and consistent results. 

Around each puncture hole, the healthy tissues begin the healing process with new collagen growth. Elastin growth happens too, which results in a tightening effect for wrinkled or sagging skin. 

What are the results of microneedling?

Microneedling can address and minimize years or even decades of damage and weathering. After your microneedling procedure, you’ll enjoy unmistakably brighter and smoother skin. You’ll also see fewer blemishes like:

  • Acne scars and other small scars
  • Age spots and sunspots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Large pores
  • Stretch marks

Microneedling also disrupts and breaks down scar tissue to make your skin softer and less textured than before your treatment. 

With microneedling, you can target a single area of your face like your cheeks or chin, your whole face, or a larger area of your body with skin damage. 

How can I enhance my microneedling procedure?

Microneedling alone can make a significant difference in your complexion, but there are ways to enhance the treatment. Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center offers PRP as an optional add on for facial rejuvenation with microneedling.

Microneedling makes your skin more responsive to products like PRP. Thanks to the puncture holes from microneedling, PRP can better reach deeper layers of skin for a stronger healing effect. 

PRP is made of components from your blood obtained from a blood draw and placed in a centrifuge for processing. 

Platelets play a major role in the healing process and release growth factors to promote tissue regeneration. PRP also contains blood plasma, which is the liquid base suspending all of your blood cells.

Microneedling with or without PRP can gently treat a wide range of skin issues for almost any skin type. To set up a consultation, call Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center or book online today.
