In the heart of Palm Beach and West Palm Beach, FL, our medical spa is dedicated to providing you with the best in skincare solutions. One of our most sought-after treatments is microneedling, a revolutionary approach to non-surgical skin rejuvenation.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling, sometimes referred to as collagen induction therapy, is a procedure that involves using a handheld device to create tiny punctures in the top layer of skin using very fine needles. It is a popular choice for those seeking to revitalize their skin without undergoing surgery. Ideal for clients looking to address issues like fine lines, acne scars, sun damage, uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, and stretch marks, or those simply seeking a more youthful, radiant complexion, this treatment offers a minimally invasive solution. It’s perfect for those who want noticeable results with minimal downtime.

How Microneedling Works

The principle behind microneedling is to trigger the body’s natural wound-healing processes and skin’s repair response. The tiny needles create micro-injuries to the skin, which then responds by producing increased elastin and stimulating new collagen production—the key building blocks of smooth, healthy skin. This process helps to reduce the appearance of scars, wrinkles, pores, scars, and stretch marks.1

Preparing for Microneedling

Before your microneedling session, a consultation with one of our skilled aestheticians will help determine your suitability for the treatment and address any concerns. To prepare, avoid using retinol products and direct sun exposure for a week before your appointment.

The Microneedling Treatment

During the procedure, a numbing cream is applied to minimize discomfort. The microneedling device is then gently moved across the target area. The treatment typically takes about 30 minutes, depending on the area being treated.

Microneedling Recovery and Results

Post-treatment, you may experience mild redness and swelling, similar to a sunburn, but these typically subside within a few days. It’s essential that patients wear sunscreen during this time to protect healing skin. Results can be seen as the skin heals over the following weeks, with optimal results visible after multiple sessions.

FAQs about Microneedling

Is microneedling painful?

Most clients report minimal discomfort due to the application of a topical anesthetic before the procedure.

How many sessions will I need?

The number of sessions varies depending on individual skin concerns and goals. Typically, 3-6 sessions are recommended for optimal results.

Can microneedling be combined with other treatments?

Yes, microneedling can be combined with other treatments to enhance overall skin rejuvenation and achieve more comprehensive results. When combined with additional modalities like injectables such as Botox and fillers, or combined with radiofrequency, peels, and/or laser treatments, microneedling can significantly improve the skin’s appearance. Our specialists can advise on the best treatment plan for your skin.

Can microneedling treat hair loss?

Yes, microneedling can be an effective treatment for addressing hair loss, including conditions like alopecia.2 Alopecia, which encompasses various forms of hair loss, can be challenging to treat, and microneedling offers a promising, minimally invasive solution.

Does microneedling have any side effects?

Microneedling is a generally safe procedure, but it can have mild and temporary side effects.3 Commonly, patients experience redness, irritation, and swelling, similar to a sunburn, which subsides within a few days. There might also be minor bruising, dryness, and skin flaking as part of the natural healing process. While rare, there is a slight risk of infection, especially if aftercare instructions are not properly followed. Some individuals, particularly those with sensitive or darker skin, may experience itching, discomfort, or changes in pigmentation.

Do home microneedling treatments work?

Home microneedling treatments have gained popularity as a DIY alternative to professional microneedling, but their effectiveness and safety are often questioned. When considering home use of devices like a dermaroller for skin needling, it’s important to understand the differences between these and professional treatments. Home microneedling devices, commonly known as dermarollers, are designed for public use and generally feature shorter needles than those used in professional microneedling. While these devices can offer some benefits, such as enhancing the absorption of skincare products and mildly stimulating the skin, they are limited in their ability to penetrate the skin deeply. The pricks made by home-use dermarollers are typically not as deep or precise as those made by professional equipment. Professional microneedling, performed in a clinical setting, uses advanced devices that can penetrate the skin at a controlled depth more effectively. This precision allows for more significant stimulation of collagen and elastin production, leading to more noticeable improvements in skin texture, tone, and scarring.
