Microneedling is a popular, minimally invasive treatment that uses fine, short needles to prick the skin, triggering a natural healing response from the body. It stimulates new collagen growth to create smoother, firmer skin with improved texture and tone. This treatment is frequently used to reduce wrinkles, large pores, and scars.

Who is a candidate for microneedling?

Also known as “collagen induction therapy,” microneedling can treat a variety of skin issues. You may be a good candidate for this minimally invasive treatment if you want to reduce the appearance of:

  • Acne scars
  • Age spots or sunspots
  • Stretch marks
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Large pores
  • Wrinkles
  • Skin laxity

What can I expect in a microneedling procedure?

We will apply a topical numbing cream before the treatment to improve your comfort. The doctor will use a microneedling device to make hundreds of tiny puncture wounds in your skin to trigger skin-repairing collagen and elastin production. Depending on your individual treatment plan, a medical-grade serum or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) may be applied to your skin after treatment to enhance your results.

Is there any recovery after microneedling?

There is virtually no downtime with microneedling. You may resume normal activities immediately after the procedure. Your skin may be pink after treatment, as it would be with a mild sunburn. This should resolve within a few hours or days. Wait several hours to wash your face, or as instructed by Dr. Mesa. It is essential to wear sunscreen to protect your skin from exposure to UV rays.


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.
