Microneedling Q&A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that remodels your skin from the inside out. The microneedling tool has thin, tiny needles that create micro-wounds on the surface of your skin. 

These wounds trigger your skin’s natural healing cascade, boosting the production of collagen and elastin, the structural proteins responsible for your skin’s youthful strength and resilience. Collagen and elastin levels in the skin decline with age, contributing to the appearance of lines and wrinkles. 

By rebuilding your skin’s layer of collagen and elastin, microneedling improves the health and look of your skin.

What can microneedling do?

Microneedling is a popular cosmetic treatment because it benefits many skin concerns. me.losangeles aesthetics recommends microneedling to:

  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Shrink enlarged pores
  • Lighten areas of hyperpigmentation
  • Improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin
  • Treat acne scars
  • Improve skin firmness
  • Soften stretch marks and surgical scars
  • Break up and reduce the appearance of cellulite

The medical spa performs microneedling on the face, neck, décolletage, and hands. 

The aesthetic experts combine microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) — a PRP facial —  to supercharge the microneedling benefits. PRP has a high concentration of specialized proteins and growth factors that boost collagen and elastin production.

I have a low tolerance for pain. What does microneedling feel like?

Your provider at me.losangeles aesthetics applies a numbing cream to your skin prior to your microneedling to minimize discomfort. The trained physician assistant and registered nurse at me.losangeles aesthetics performs microneedling using the innovative SkinPen®, the first FDA-cleared microneedling tool. 

Microneedling sessions at me.losangeles aesthetics take 30-60 minutes. 

You may need more than one treatment to get the desired results. Your provider at me.losangeles aesthetics may recommend one to three microneedling sessions every four weeks, followed by maintenance treatments once or twice a year.

What can I expect after microneedling?

You may have some redness and swelling immediately following your microneedling, but these side effects resolve within a day or two. There’s no need for downtime following microneedling, however.

You may notice improvements in the look of your skin soon after your first microneedling treatment. However, it takes time for your skin to rebuild collagen and elastin; final results may appear about three months after you complete treatment.
