Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a popular facial rejuvenation procedure that uses a STRATAPEN® to make microscopic punctures in your skin to stimulate your body’s natural healing abilities. It’s a nonsurgical procedure that improves skin texture and tone.

The small pinholes left in your skin don’t leave any scars, but trigger collagen and elastin production to give you a healthy, youthful complexion.

What conditions does microneedling treat?

Microneedling is useful for conditions, such as:

  • Stretch marks
  • Scars
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Enlarged Pores
  • Uneven tone or texture
  • Dull skin

Microneedling is also one of the most popular anti-aging therapies for sagging skin.  

What are the benefits of microneedling?

In addition to the vast improvements in your skin, microneedling has many other benefits that make it a go-to choice for facial rejuvenation:

  • A quick, 30-minute, in-office procedure
  • No downtime
  • Nonsurgical

Except for a little redness and swelling, there are no side effects associated with microneedling.

What is PRP?

All Island Dermatology recommends PRP treatments in conjunction with microneedling. PRP is short for platelet-rich plasma, which is entirely natural because it comes from your own blood. Your provider injects your plasma, which is rich in growth factors, into the same areas where he made tiny pinholes during the microneedling process. The regenerative properties of PRP perfectly complement the collagen induction qualities of microneedling. The result is firmer, smoother skin.

Am I a candidate for microneedling with PRP?

Almost every adult can benefit from the skin tightening and rejuvenating effects of microneedling and PRP. Since there are minimal risks and no downtime, you can get microneedling and PRP at any age. It works the same for all skin types and skin colors, too, giving it universal appeal.

At your consultation, your provider takes a close look at your medical history and skin profile to ensure that you’re a good candidate for the procedure.

How long does it take to see results?

You’ll see results in a day or two after your initial treatment, but optimal improvements come over time as new collagen and elastin are produced. Your team at All Island Dermatology customizes your treatment for you, so you’ll know how many sessions you’ll need for optimal results. All patients have at least a series of 3. Within four to six weeks, dramatic improvements are visible.
