Microneedling is one of the most popular skincare and anti-aging treatments available. Undergoing a microneedling treatment can produce truly remarkable results. This quick, effective treatment creates hundreds of tiny micro-injuries in your skin, triggering the natural regeneration mechanism in your skin cells which increases the production of natural collagen over time.

What is microneedling?

Advances in scientific research demonstrated that skin cells respond to minor damage by sending healing growth factors to regenerate the area with increased collagen production. This revelation led to the development of a range of skin-restoring treatments, including microneedling. 

This procedure is performed with a surgical handpiece that contains many tiny, sterile needles that create controlled micro-channels in your skin. These intentional injuries cause little-to-no collateral damage while stimulating the innate healing power of your skin. Microneedling can provide the following benefits:

  • Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Increased skin elasticity and volume
  • Reduced appearance of hyperpigmentation and sun damage
  • A more even, smooth complexion
  • Decreased pore size 
  • Firmer, more resilient skin

The microneedling experience

Microneedling is a quick procedure that can be completed in about 30 minutes or less. We begin with a topical anesthetic for comfort, and then Dr. Mesa runs the sterile handpiece over your face in a pattern that allows for each area of skin to receive multiple passes. You can expect some minor pinpoint bleeding during and after the treatment, which will disappear quickly. 

Your face will be red and slightly swollen for a few hours after your treatment. There is no downtime associated with microneedling, and you will be free to return to your usual activities if you wish — although we recommend taking the rest of the day off to allow the after-effects to fade.
