Microneedling Q&A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a dermatological service that boosts skin health by increasing collagen, a structural protein. Collagen is one of a few different proteins that make your skin firm when you’re young, and the loss of it with age is among several processes that contribute to wrinkles and long-lasting scarring. 

The Health and MedSpa team uses CytoPen® microneedling to make dozens of shallow pinpricks on your skin’s surface. These tiny holes make your skin extra porous, so applying serums, moisturizers, growth factors, and antioxidants is especially beneficial for your skin during or after microneedling.

Collagen production, part of the healing process, starts in response to the injuries in your skin. In the process, it heals many of your skin’s imperfections in tone and texture. 

Health and MedSpa also features the StemFacial®, a microneedling treatment that uses a topical containing stem cell-derived serums to reduce inflammation and enhance healing. 

How does microneedling make my skin look better?

Microneedling makes your complexion softer and less rugged. The treatment helps heal blemishes and marks that you might have thought would be there forever. After several microneedling sessions with some time for healing between each of them, your skin has fewer:

  • Acne scars
  • Injury scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Visible pores
  • Textural issues
  • Wrinkles and lines
  • Age spots 
  • Discolored areas
  • Dry and rough patches

Even if your skin care routine is well refined and personalized, it can’t compete with a series of four or more microneedling treatments at Health and MedSpa. Of course, you should continue to take great care of your skin at home too. 

How does microneedling compare to other skin treatments?

When you first come in for a consultation at Health and MedSpa, the team helps you consider all of your skin care treatment options. They evaluate your skin type and decide how to proceed with treatment, based on your primary goals. 

If you’re trying to decide on a skin care treatment between microneedling, chemical peels, dermabrasion, and laser treatments, consider these advantages that microneedling has over the others:

  • Scarless healing
  • Minimal to no downtime
  • Minimal discomfort
  • Anesthetic cream available

Microneedling also involves minimal preparation beforehand. However, you can expect to stop taking certain medications for a while and stop using topical retinoids for some time before and after treatment. 

Microneedling can make a bigger difference in your complexion’s quality than you might initially expect. To learn more about the process and how to prepare for a successful treatment, call Health and MedSpa for a consultation or book a visit online today.
