Is Microneedling Right For Me?

Microneedling is one of the newest cosmetic treatments on the market. For people looking to improve the appearance of acne scars, collagen boost, and reduce the fine lines and deep wrinkles, micro needling may be right for you.

The microneedle treatment creates very tine punctures in the skin. The purpose of micro-needling treatment is to rejuvenate the skin using a derma roller. A derma roller is made up of micron-sized needles that range from 0-5-2-5 millimeters in size.

Everything You Need To Know About Microneedling

Microneedling creates small, micro-sized punctures in the skin. Microneedling is considered a minimally invasive treatment that is typically done by a trained dermatologist or esthetician. The micro punctures stimulate the body’s natural wound healing response.  The result is increased collagen and elastin production. Microneedling is becoming increasingly popular for patients of all ages because of its effective results.

Benefits of Microneedling:

  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduces and repairs the appearance of scars
  • Can reduce sun damage and discoloration
  • Shrinks the pores
  • Can help aging skin
  • Help the skin absorb skincare products.

Dr. Guarino will discuss your treatment options during a consultation and provide details about what to expect during your treatment. Microneedling is performed after a topical anesthetic is applied. The procedure typically lasts about 30 minutes. Patients may expereice mild redness, swelling, and skin sensitivity immediately after treatment. Any discomfort will normally dissipate after a few days as the skin begins to heal.
