How does microneedling work?
Microneedling works by triggering the body’s wound healing response. The tiny pinpricks created by the microneedling device cause controlled injury to the skin, which responds by making new tissue-rich collagen. The new skin stimulated by the procedure is firmer and more even in tone and texture.
What should I do to prepare for microneedling?
Dr. Mesa will advise you on how to prepare for microneedling before your treatment. You may need to stop taking certain medications in advance of the procedure, or stop using topical retinoid products.
When will I see results with microneedling?
It takes some time for the body to generate new collagen after a microneedling procedure. Your most dramatic results will become visible at approximately four to six weeks after treatment.
What are the benefits of microneedling?
Microneedling is a safe, effective, minimally invasive treatment to rejuvenate the skin. It can reduce the appearance of large pores, scars, stretch marks, fine lines, and wrinkles in an in-office procedure that requires no downtime.
