Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that stimulates the production of collagen. Collagen is the protein that keeps your skin strong and resilient.

During treatment, Jennifer uses a special microneedling tool that places microtears into the surface of your skin. These tears simulate an injury, which triggers your body to send over healing cells to repair the “damage.” 

To enhance the repair process, Jennifer may suggest you combine your microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a blood product that contains a high concentration of your body’s healing cells. When applied to your skin after microneedling, the healing properties in PRP can accelerate the repair process for more dramatic results. This innovative aesthetic treatment is referred to as a Vampire Facial®. 

What does microneedling treat?

Jennifer uses microneedling as an aesthetic tool to treat many beauty concerns. You may want to consider scheduling a consultation at A Body Renaissance if you’re looking for a minimally invasive treatment to:

  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines
  • Improve skin texture
  • Even out skin tone and color

The cosmetic treatment is also used to treat acne scars and large pores. 

What can I expect during my microneedling treatment?

Jennifer performs your microneedling treatment at the office. To reduce any discomfort, she may apply a topical cream to your skin prior to the application of the microneedling tool. Once your skin is ready, she gently and methodically applies the tool to your skin to get the desired results.

The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes. Once complete, Jennifer applies PRP or a calming cream to your skin, followed by sunblock. 

Your skin may be red for a few days following your microneedling treatment, but there’s no need for downtime following your session.

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

Your skin takes action very quickly to repair the damage created by the microneedling tool and you may notice an improvement in the look and tone of your skin within a few weeks of treatment. Jennifer may recommend a series of microneedling sessions to get the most benefits out of your treatment.
