Microneedling: Frequently Asked Questions

Microneedling is a popular beauty procedure that rejuvenates the skin. It encourages your body to produce more collagen and elastin, which helps your skin to heal and look more youthful. The following microneedling FAQs will answer some of the top questions that people ask about microneedling, its benefits, and whether it’s right for them.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that uses tiny needles to prick your skin. The little wounds will then require your skin to create collagen and elastin to promote healing. This tones your skin and leads to more youthful looks. The procedure is carried out with a numbing cream that’s put on your skin first so that the microneedling device isn’t felt as strongly.

What Is RF Microneedling?

RF (radiofrequency) microneedling also radiofrequency waves to encourage your skin to rejuvenate. The RF waves are sent into the tiny wounds made by the sterilized microneedles, which promotes further healing.

What Are the Benefits of Microneedling?

Microneedling helps your skin cells to grow back smoother and more toned than before. Collagen and elastin are both important to the health and elasticity of your skin. As you get older, your skin becomes less elastic, which can lead to a loss of tone, as well as lines and wrinkles. Microneedling can help your skin look more youthful by improving tone and elasticity.

Microneedling can be used to treat and improve a range of skin conditions, imperfections, and blemishes. These include hyperpigmentation, acne scars, enlarged pores, wrinkles, fine lines, rosacea, stretch marks, and uneven texture.

How Long Does It Take to See Results?

You could start to see results from microneedling in as little as two weeks. It doesn’t produce immediate results because you need to wait for your skin to respond to the treatment. However, it won’t be long before you can see how the microneedling is benefitting your skin.

How Many Sessions Are Required?

We recommend that you have two to four microneedling treatments if you want to see optimal results. Each session lasts between about 20 and 40 minutes. You can also choose to combine microneedling with Red Light Therapy, which helps to speed up the healing process and reduce inflammation.

What Is the Recovery Like After Microneedling?

Microneedling doesn’t require a long recovery time. It can leave your face looking a little red and there might be some slight bleeding caused by the tiny needles in the first day or two after the procedure. We recommend not wearing makeup for a few days while your skin is healing.

What Does It Feel Like?

Microneedling can cause some discomfort. However, numbing cream can be used before the treatment to reduce sensation in the treatment area first.

How Long Do the Results of Microneedling Last?

The results of microneedling can last different lengths of time. They will generally last at least three to five months but can last for up to a year if you have multiple sessions.
