Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that generates new collagen and elastin to result in smoother, firmer skin. The procedure uses a device that pricks your skin with tiny, sterilized needles. Also known as collagen induction therapy. Microneedling is most often used on the face to treat various scars, wrinkles, and large pores. Microneedling is used in certain anti-aging procedures like eyelid surgery and to remove sunspots. Microneedling can also be used on the body to help improve skin texture, crepey skin, scars, and stretch marks.
As a professional procedure, microneedling used at The Med Spot is designed to induce skin rejuvenation. When you receive microneedling at The Med Spot, you’ll benefit from the skill, attention to detail, and experience of Dr. Michelle Reyes and her team.
The process of microneedling encourages your skin to produce more collagen. The slight injuries also called micro-injuries caused by the microneedling procedure, occur in the form of small pinpricks to the skin. This prompts your skin to make new collagen-rich tissue. This brand new tissue is more even in tone and texture. After specialized microneedling treatments at The Med Spot, you may even see firmer skin. This is because microneedling makes your skin cells more uniform resulting in skin that looks smoother and fresher. It’s like turning back the clock and you could even have it done on your lunch break!
On the day of your treatment, you’ll receive a topical anesthetic to reduce the chances of discomfort. When the anesthetic has taken effect, Dr. Michelle Reyes or a member of The Med Spot team will make small pinpricks into your skin with a device similar in size to a pen. Don’t worry, you’ll likely not notice the microchannels after the procedure. The microneedling device will then be moved evenly across your skin. Your newly rejuvenated skin will have improved tone, texture, and appear more even. After the procedure, Dr. Michelle Reyes or a member of the Med Spot team may apply a calming treatment or serum. The procedure itself usually takes only about 10-20 minutes.
The numbing cream dulls most of the discomfort, but you may feel tiny pinpricks to the treatment area. Most patients find the microneedling procedure to be very tolerable. The most common side effect is minor skin irritation immediately following the procedure, and you may see some slight redness for a few days.
As with any minimally invasive treatment, there are rare side effects like bleeding, bruising, or peeling. If any of these occur after you receive treatment, you’ll be advised to contact The Med Spot for further guidance.
You may not be an ideal candidate for microneedling if you are pregnant, have certain skin diseases like eczema or psoriasis, have had recent radiation treatment, have open wounds, or have had a history of certain types of scars.
Dr. Michelle Reyes or a member of The Med Spot team will discuss your skincare goals with you and make recommendations on the number of treatments you’ll need to see the results you want. To maintain these results and achieve your skincare goals, you may need multiple sessions as well as treatments that complement corrective action. Most people need 4-6 treatments to see a difference.
Microneedling is not as invasive as other treatments, and the recovery time is minimal. You’ll require very little or no downtime after your procedure. You can go back to work or school if you’re comfortable. Microneedling may work better for people with darker skin tones. This is because microneedling does not involve the use of heat, which can affect your skin’s pigmentation or color. Some people use tinted moisturizer during the first few days after the procedure. Ask The Med Spot team about which tinted moisturizer is safe to use after procedures. Microneedling promotes your skin’s natural collagen production for long-lasting results that improve over time.
Microneedling treatments are suitable for both men and women seeking to improve the tone, texture, and radiance of their skin without dramatic commitment and changes or a long recovery. If you’re looking to improve the appearance of acne scars, reduced skin elasticity, sun damage, and fine lines and wrinkles, microneedling may be the treatment for you!
