Microneedling devices are divided into two categories, cosmetic and medical. Cosmetic microneedling delivers fine, sterile needles at a depth of 0.3mm or less to maximize the absorption of medical-grade aesthetics, repair pigmentation issues, reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles, and can stimulate hair follicles for hair restoration. However, medical microneedling penetrates at a depth of 1.5 to 1.0mm and tackles wrinkles, acne scarring, surgical and incidental scarring, contouring and lifting, firming lax skin, stretch marks, and texture. It is excellent for use on the body to stimulate natural collagen production and improve the appearance of many skin concerns.
Microneedling produces an inflammatory response that triggers the body’s natural healing response by stimulating collagen production. Collagen is made up of elastic fibers that tighten and smooth the skin from the inside out. As we age, collagen production slows, which is why a microneedling procedure is so beneficial for resurfacing and combating signs of aging.

What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a treatment that can be applied to many areas of the face and body using a microneedling device. A microneedling device creates micro-injuries with tiny, sterile needles to stimulate the body’s natural healing response. The healing response promotes collagen and elastin production that works to repair textural concerns like scarring, stretch marks, skin laxity, and pigmentation issues.
Am I a good candidate for Medical Microneedling?
Medical microneedling is suitable for most skin types. Your aesthetician will determine if you are a good candidate for microneedling before your appointment and specify a treatment plan to accomplish your goals.
When will I see the results after Medical Microneedling?
24 hours after your treatment, your skin might appear pink or red, similar to a sunburn. You may feel warmth and tightness that will lessen throughout the day. Most patients note a brightness to their complexion a few hours to days after treatment. Over the next several weeks, you will detect signs of healing, including visible improvements in the texture and scarring, as collagen continues to repair the treated area.
How many treatments will I need?
Most patients need three to four treatments scheduled six to eight weeks apart.
