What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a skin treatment that harnesses your body’s innate healing abilities to enhance the look and feel of your skin. It’s a minimally invasive treatment that delivers outstanding results without the risk and recovery time of surgical interventions.

The process works by using a treatment handpiece covered in tiny sterile needles. This device “stamps” the needles into the surface of your skin to create thousands of tiny channels in the deeper layers of your skin.

Your body perceives each of these punctures as an injury and quickly launches a strong immune response. New collagen cells are created, smoothing and plumping the skin. Some options incorporate radiofrequency energy into treatments to further enhance collagen production.

Prejuvé MedSpa and Wellness offers the SkinPen® microneedling system as well as Morpheus8®.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can also be incorporated into microneedling. This powerful solution is created from a small volume of your own blood and helps promote new cell growth and swift healing.

What kinds of skin conditions can microneedling improve?

Microneedling is a versatile treatment that can correct a number of different skin conditions at once. Some of the issues microneedling is well suited for include:

  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Enlarged pores
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Acne and other scarring
  • Loose or crepey skin
  • Uneven skin texture or tone

The ability to improve more than one skin complaint at once makes microneedling a great value.

Is microneedling a painful treatment?

All this talk of punctures, needles, and healing might lead you to believe that microneedling is a painful process. In reality, treatments are easily tolerated by most.

An application of numbing cream helps keep your skin comfortable during treatment. You might feel a mild stinging or burning sensation as your practitioner moves the handpiece across the surface of your skin, but there is no significant pain.

A degree of swelling, bleeding, and discomfort is normal for a day or two after treatment. Your skin heals quickly, and over-the-counter pain medication is all that’s needed to manage discomfort.
