What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally-invasive skin resurfacing treatment aimed at treating signs of aging and improving the appearance of your face. At our office, we use the SkinPen® by Bellus Medical to perform our microneedling procedures. This procedure is also known as collagen induction therapy, as it works by creating mini injuries to the targeted areas to encourage the skin’s natural healing process.
Over time, our bodies lose the ability to create collagen and elastin, the two components that help keep our skin firm, smooth, and supple. In the microneedling process, the micro-injuries created by the SkinPen® help to activate and release growth factors that lead to the rebuilding of collagen and elastin in the skin.
Microneedling is great for skin rejuvenation including those with issues such as:
- Fine lines
- Skin discolorations
- Acne scars
- Large pores
Microneedling with PRP
To assist in the microneedling procedure, we also perform microneedling with PRP or platelet-rich plasma. Platelet-rich plasma has generally been used in areas of medicine such as orthopedic medicine and reconstructive surgery to aid in the healing process after procedures. When used with the SkinPen® for microneedling, PRP goes into the skin as the microneedles create their tiny punctures, helping to kick-start the natural healing processes of your skin.
Because we derive the PRP from your own blood, there are nearly no risks of side-effects of using PRP with this procedure.
Benefits of Microneedling
There are many benefits to having the microneedling and microneedling with PRP procedure for skin rejuvenation. Because of the advanced medical-grade technology of the SkinPen®, you’ll be able to experience the beautiful results of a healthy, younger-looking appearance.
The benefits include:
- Appropriate for use on all skin types
- Minimal damage to the epidermis
- A comfortable procedure with the use of topical anesthetics
- Short procedure time between 30 minutes to one hour
- Can be used on many body parts
- Minimal risk of side-effects or scarring
Most any healthy adult can be a candidate for the microneedling procedure. Because of its low-risk profile, this procedure is a viable option for those who are not candidates for laser resurfacing for skin rejuvenation.
Most people experience little downtime after the microneedling procedure is complete. Mild swelling and redness may occur after the procedure, and while healing times may vary from individual to individual, most can expect to see results within two to four days but results may take up to six months as the collagen in your skin continues to rebuild and help revitalize your skin.
