How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that offers patients several benefits. A treatment session begins when a technician cleans your skin and then applies a topical numbing cream to the area you are treating. Once the numbing cream is removed, specific serums will be applied to the treatment area. Your technician will then perform the procedure using depth settings chosen based on your treatment area and your particular skin concerns. You won’t feel any pain during the process – only the vibration of the machine.

Am I a Good Candidate for Microneedling?
Microneedling is great for several skin conditions including:
- Loose skin that needs to be tightened up and rejuvenated
- Reducing acne scars, surgical scars, or other scars
- Improving wrinkles and fine lines
- Minimizing pore size
- Improving stretch marks
How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?
A microneedling treatment session typically lasts about 30 minutes, depending on the patient and the issue he or she is addressing. Usually, patients require 6-8 treatment sessions, spaced out about three weeks apart, to achieve desired results.
What Results Will I See?*
Microneedling accelerates collagen production and cellular turnover. Sometimes you may see immediate results. Usually, though, your final results won’t be visible until about 4-6 weeks after you’re done with all your sessions.
Is There Any Downtime?
Microneedling has minimal downtime. Generally, patients experience:
- Initial inflammation that lasts 24-48 hours
- Redness or sensitivity that may last a few days
