What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation procedure that generates new collagen and skin tissue to deliver smoother, firmer, more beautiful skin. The treatment uses a derma-roller or microneedling pen to make tiny punctures into the skin, which kickstarts the body’s natural healing function. 

This healing function sends collagen and elastin to repair the skin so that the tiny injuries made by the derma-roller or microneedling pen are replaced with brand-new, collagen-rich tissues and blood vessels. The result is improved, gorgeous new skin. 

Microneedling treatment details

A topical numbing cream will be applied to your skin keep you comfortable during your microneedling treatment. After you are numbed, the hand-held microneedling instrument will be passed over your skin in the area to be treated. Most patients find this part of the treatment to be very tolerable, but everyone has a different pain threshold, and you may find some areas of your skin are more sensitive than others. Once the microneedling has been completed, a serum will be applied to your skin. Treatments typically take 30 to 45 minutes. Most patients see optimal results from 3 to 6 microneedling sessions; however, more severe skin problems may need up to 6 or 8 sessions.

Recovery and results

Microneedling requires very minimal downtime. The exact amount of time you can expect to need will depend on how aggressive your treatment is.

During your consultation with Dr. Hazen, she will be able to tell you what you can expect during recovery, and how many days of healing you may require. After treatment, you may experience skin redness, peeling, swelling, and pinpoint bleeding, but these subside very quickly. 

Your skin may also feel raw, sunburned, and/or itchy for a couple of days, but a gentle moisturizer can help if this happens. You will be able to return to your normal skin care regimen and daily activities the following day. Be sure to avoid sun exposure, heat, and exfoliating for 24 hours after your microneeding treatment. Early results will become apparent 2 to 4 weeks following your microneedling procedure, and final results will be visible in six months.
