What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, or CIT, is a highly effective, non-surgical, facial rejuvenation treatment designed to improve the look of fine lines, acne scars, tone and texture, and even pore size.
During the session, tiny sterilized needles will create controlled micro-injuries by lightly puncturing the very outer layer of skin. It might seem odd, but these small injuries will stimulate your body’s natural healing response, which will enhance collagen and elastin production, leading to smoother and youthful looking skin.

Microneedling Details

Benefits of Microneedling

There are a number of benefits of microneedling treatment that improve the look and feel of your skin. Microneedling benefits include:

  • Reduced appearance of wrinkles and fine lines due to aging
  • Smoother texture of the skin
  • Smaller pores
  • Improved appearance of burn and acne scars
  • Reduce the appearance of stretch marks
  • Even out skin tone reducing the appearance of sun damage, hyperpigmentation and age spots

How Microneedling Can Improve Your Skin Conditions?

Reduced Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Microneedling under eyes and around the face can greatly improve fine lines and wrinkles caused by aging or smoking, making the skin look firm and youthful.

Smaller Pores

Microneedling treatment can help decrease the size of large pores that are easily visible on the skin of the forehead, cheeks, and chin.

Improved Appearance of Acne and Burn Scars

Acne scars around the face, neck, back, and chest can be smoothed and improved with microneedling. For deeper burn and acne scarring, more sessions might be necessary to reduce scarring.

Less Noticeable Stretch Marks

Stretch marks, whether from growing or weight changes, can be very frustrating. Microneedling stretch marks is a common method for reducing and diminishing the appearance of stretch marks.

Smoother Skin Texture

Microneedling can help to smooth the texture of aged, scarred, and weathered skin, using only the body’s natural healing process and growth factor production. Microneedling helps to bring a lustrous glow back to dull skin.

Even Skin Tone and Reduced Sunspots

Aging and hyperpigmentation are both common culprits of uneven skin tone on the face and body. Microneedling can help smooth out skin tone, as well as unwanted sunspots, so skin looks more even.

Treat Rosacea

Rosacea is a common skin condition causing visible red patches and blood vessels on the face. Often caused by a hastened breakdown of collagen, the ruddiness and thinning of the skin can be improved with microneedling. After a microneedling procedure, skin will look less inflamed and irritated and will produce more collagen.

How Does Microneedling Work?

Microneedling creates thousands of microchannels that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. This process rejuvenates your skin from the inside out. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue and surface imperfections, while keeping the structure of the skin intact. Microneedling has proven to be effective for men and women of all skin tones.

Frequently Asked Questions About Microneedling

What skin conditions does microneedling treat?

Microneedling has a variety of applications. It can be used to treat acne and burn scars, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, stretch marks, and more. Just talk to your esthetician to determine if microneedling is the right choice for you.

How many treatment sessions do you need?

The necessary number of treatment sessions to see results differs with age and skin condition. Some people might only need 1 or 2 sessions, while someone with more fine lines or greater acne scarring could need between 3 and 6 sessions. Based on their custom treatment plan developed with their Advanced Practice Esthetician, most patients opt for a series of sessions after which they may schedule a follow-up session or sessions. Microneedling 2-4 times annually is a great way to maintain your results and to continue to stimulate collagen and combat the skin thinning appearance that comes with aging.

Is microneedling painful?

Microneedling is not painful because we apply a powerful numbing cream before the session. Also, the Skinpen device is so quick and the needles so tiny that most people describe it as more of a mild “prickling” or “tingling” sensation. At the Metropolitan, our skilled staff has the experience and expertise to make the process as comfortable as possible.

How long does the microneedling procedure last?

The length of the microneedling procedure depends on the amount of skin being treated. Normally, the session is about 1 hour and 30 minutes long, including the numbing preparation, and our team at Metropolitan Skin Clinic works efficiently and safely.

What are microneedling pre-treatment instructions?

Before the microneedling treatment, use a gentle, unscented facial cleanser to wash the skin. Do not put on makeup before the treatment.

What are microneedling post-treatment instructions?

After the microneedling session, avoid strenuous exercise, saunas, and any other activities that could open the pores for 48 hours. Do not use makeup for 24-48 hours after the treatment and sleep with a clean pillowcase.
