Micro-needling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device equipped with fine needles. These needles are used to create tiny puncture wounds in the top layer of the skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing processes and promoting the production of collagen and elastin. It’s a non-surgical, effective way to address various skin conditions and improve the overall health and appearance of your skin.
Micro-needling offers a plethora of benefits. Micro-needling can:
reduce visible signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles
repair visible scars from acne or surgery
reverse sun damage and pigmentation for a more even skin tone
shrink pores to refine skin texture
By stimulating collagen production, it not only addresses current skin concerns but also helps prevent future damage. It’s safe for most skin types and typically has fewer side effects than more invasive procedures.
Micro-needling works by causing controlled micro-injuries to the skin’s surface, triggering the body’s natural healing response. These micro-injuries stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, proteins that give the skin its elasticity and firmness. The increased collagen and elastin smooth out wrinkles, fine lines, and improve the texture of the skin, leading to a rejuvenated appearance.
Micro-needling with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a combination procedure that uses the regenerative power of your blood’s platelets to amplify the effects of micro-needling. After a micro-needling treatment, PRP derived from your own blood is applied or injected into the treated area. PRP contains growth factors that stimulate tissue regeneration and speed up the healing process, enhancing the results of micro-needling.
Following a micro-needling procedure, you can expect to see a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars, along with improved skin texture and tone. Your skin may also become firmer and more radiant due to increased collagen production. Results typically become visible after 1-2 weeks and improve over time with a series of treatments.
Before a micro-needling procedure, it’s important to have a consultation Dr. G. He may recommend avoiding certain medications or skincare products that could increase skin sensitivity. It’s also advised to stay out of the sun and avoid any type of skin irritation for a few days prior to the treatment.
During a micro-needling treatment, a numbing cream is applied to your skin to minimize discomfort. Then, a device with tiny, fine needles is moved across your skin, creating micro-punctures. The procedure typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour depending on the treatment area.
Recovery from micro-needling is typically minimal. You may experience some redness, swelling, or sensitivity similar to a mild sunburn, which should subside within a few days. Most people are able to return to normal activities and wear makeup within 24 hours. It’s important to avoid direct sun exposure and use sunscreen to protect the treated area.
Micro-needling is generally safe, but like any cosmetic procedure, it carries some risk. Potential side effects may include redness, bruising, swelling, and infection. Those with active acne, certain skin diseases, or a history of poor wound healing should consult with Dr. G professional before undergoing micro-needling. Dr. G will review your medical history with you during your consultation to make sure micro-needling is safe for you.
The cost of micro-needling varies depending on the area being treated and the number of sessions needed. Dr. G. will consult with you for an accurate estimate based on your specific needs and goals.
