Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation treatment that uses fine needles to create tiny punctures in the top layer of your skin. Doing so is a minimally invasive way to stimulate collagen and elastin growth during the skin’s healing process. Benefits of using microneedling as an anti-aging strategy include:

  • Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improvements in the appearance of scars
  • Reduced signs of sun damage
  • Improvements in skin pigmentation
  • Smaller pores
  • Firmer skin
  • More toned skin
  • A younger looking appearance

 

Microneedling is an anti-aging treatment mainly reserved for skin on your face to create a more youthful look.

What should I expect during microneedling sessions?

When you arrive for a microneedling session at Kamala Aesthetics, your provider may use a numbing cream to reduce any discomfort during the procedure.

When it’s time for microneedling, your aesthetician makes small pricks in your skin with a pen-like tool, such as SkinPen®. The microneedling device moves across the skin on your face in areas that need rejuvenation.

The pricks are very small, so you won’t be able to see them. A microneedling procedure may take about 30 minutes or so depending on the area treated, but you might be at the office for several hours.

What is a SkinPen?

The SkinPen is an FDA-cleared and FDA-approved microneedling device that’s safe and effective for treating facial acne scars in patients ages 22 and older. The appearance of scars improves with as little as three noninvasive treatments spaced 30 days apart, quickly giving you the confidence you deserve.

What happens after microneedling treatment?

Recovery time after microneedling is minimal and requires little to no downtime. Within the first few days after microneedling, your skin may appear:

  • Red
  • Swollen
  • Irritated

 

It might be more sensitive to the sun as well, so use sun protection when you go outdoors. You may notice results from microneedling within just a few weeks, but might require several treatment sessions (or additional skin rejuvenation treatments) to maximize results.
