Microneedling Q&A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, skin needling, or derma rolling, is a treatment used to improve your skin’s overall appearance. A minimally invasive procedure using ultra thin needles, microneedling helps reduce various skin concerns.

 

The team of providers at Center of Advanced Wellness uses SkinPen®, the first FDA-cleared microneedling device and the only microneedling protocol engineered and manufactured in the United States. 

 

SkinPen offers superior results to other derma rollers due to its longer needle length and compact design (it can reach small areas). It’s also more sanitary because it uses sterile, disposable needle cartridges.

 

How does microneedling with SkinPen work?

 

Microneedling takes advantage of the skin's natural healing process. During the session, your provider uses SkinPen to create thousands of precise micro-injuries in your dermis, stimulating new collagen without causing scar tissue.

 

This process triggers your body’s natural ability to heal itself and produces new collagen resulting in firmer and smoother skin tissue.

 

What are the benefits of microneedling?

Your body views the tiny needle puncture wounds as damaged and shifts into repair mode, correcting the problem by producing more collagen and elastin — two of the skin’s best assets for a fresh, youthful appearance. They work together as critical components of the many benefits of microneedling, which include:

 

  • Improve wrinkles and fine lines
  • Firm up skin laxity (around the mouth or eyelids)
  • Minimize acne, scars, and stretch marks
  • Erase sun damage, age spots, hyperpigmentation, and melasma
  • Reduce pore size

 

If you suffer from acne scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, enlarged pores, skin texture issues, surgical or traumatic scars, or you need solutions penetrated very deeply, microneedling with SkinPen can help.

 

How do I know if I am a good candidate for microneedling with SkinPen?

Microneedling with SkinPen is an incredibly safe procedure, and nearly everyone is a good candidate for it.

 

The best way to determine if you are an ideal candidate for microneedling with this revolutionary device is to come in for an initial consultation with a skin expert. Your provider can discuss your concerns and goals with you in more detail. 

 

How many microneedling sessions will I need?

Most people need 4-6 sessions, about 4-6 weeks apart, for the best results. This interval allows your skin time to heal, boosting collagen and elastin production. If you have age spots, acne scars, or deep wrinkles, your provider might recommend up to 10 treatments for optimal results.

 

The team customizes the number of your microneedling sessions based on your skin condition and desired outcome. As your skin continues to repair itself, you'll see results and increased improvement over the weeks following your treatment.
