Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive aesthetic treatment that tricks your skin into thinking it’s been injured. The tool used for microneedling creates microchannels in the surface of your skin, which triggers collagen production and cell turnover.

Collagen is a structural protein responsible for your skin’s strength and resiliency. As you get older, your skin produces less collagen, which leads to skin laxity, as well as lines and wrinkles. Microneedling is a way to revive collagen production to regenerate your skin.

What beauty concerns can microneedling improve?

Ruth uses microneedling to treat many common skin concerns. You may want to consider microneedling for your:

  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Scars

To accelerate the healing powers of microneedling, Ruth may suggest combining your collagen induction therapy with a stem cell facial.

Stem cells are the cells in your body responsible for creating and repairing tissue, and by combining the two aesthetic tools, you may get a more dramatic improvement in the look and health of your skin.

What can I expect during a microneedling treatment?

Ruth conducts microneedling right in the office. Before she begins your treatment, she cleanses your skin and applies a topical anesthetic to reduce discomfort as the tiny injuries are created.

Once you’re prepped and ready, she begins your beauty treatment, which takes about 45 minutes.

After Ruth has completed your microneedling, she may apply a special serum or the stem cells, depending on your needs and treatment plan. You may experience some redness and pinpoint bleeding after your session. Ruth suggests you take it easy for a day or two as your skin heals.

How long does it take to see the results of my microneedling?

You may begin to notice a change in the look and health of your skin within two weeks after your session, with continued improvement over the next several weeks.

Ruth recommends you be diligent about using sunblock daily and covering up with a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses if you plan on being out in the sun for any length of time to help extend the longevity of your treatment.
