Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a cosmetic process that uses needles to puncture tiny superficial holes in your skin, which over time leads to increased collagen production and a boost in skin elasticity.

The procedure is minimally invasive, which means you don’t have to go under the knife to get smoother, younger-looking skin. This may be a more appealing option than cosmetic surgery to women seeking a relatively wallet-friendly wrinkle reducing treatment.

Why would I want to try microneedling?

Microneedling is the perfect option for women hoping to minimize the appearance of common skin problems and age-related changes such as:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Dull skin
  • Saggy skin
  • Stretch marks

Compared to other cosmetic procedures, microneedling is relatively painless because the needles that puncture your skin are quite small — designed only to boost collagen production and promote increased blood circulation.

The process is also quite quick, especially if you are opting for a professional microneedling treatment.

Am I a good candidate for microneedling?

Most women who opt for microneedling have already tried enough at-home skin treatments to know that a professional procedure is the only way to achieve dramatic results. This cosmetic process is often the final treatment women get before considering more invasive surgical procedures or injectable treatments, such as dermal fillers and BOTOX.Ⓡ

If you’re a healthy individual who hasn’t reacted negatively to other in-office procedures, such as microneedling is the perfect option for you. It can be used on any skin tone and type.

Anyone with an infection in close proximity to a treatment area would need to allow the issue to heal before having a microneedling procedure.

Is microneedling at home effective?

There are plenty of at-home microneedling devices, such as dermarollers, that you can buy online.

Most dermatologists agree, however, that at-home dermarollers are not very effective. Not only are the needles too small to be effective, but doctors trained in microneedling understand the complexity involved in the collagen-boosting technique in a way that others can’t.

If you actually want to boost collagen production, tighten your skin, and brighten your complexion, call New Image Aesthetics today or book an appointment online to schedule a microneedling appointment.
