How Does Microneedling Work?

Finding out more about the process is important for being ready for your treatment. Your microneedling technician will use a device covered in small, hollow needles that are rolled over your skin. Microneedling is often done on the face as an anti-aging treatment. The device is gently rolled over the surface of your face (and body, if you are having other areas treated) in several directions. As the needles pierce your skin, they cause micro-injuries that tell your body to boost collagen production. Collagen is what keeps your skin plump and firm. It decreases with age, leading to lines, wrinkles, and sagging. In addition, the process can also improve the appearance of facial scars, reduce pore size, minimize the appearance of stretch marks, calm skin conditions like rosacea, and treat pigmentation issues. It might sound dangerous, but microneedling is generally safe, and our microneedling technicians are well-trained in performing the procedure.

How to Prepare for Microneedling

Microneedling prep is one of the most important steps to the procedure. Being ready is vital to getting the most out of the treatment and to prevent potential issues from popping up.

One of the most important answers to what to do before microneedling is to ensure your skin is in a calm state. That means that you aren’t using a bunch of products to treat your skin.

You should avoid exfoliating in the days leading up to the treatment. If you use acne medications, you may need to discontinue use for several weeks to months before microneedling.

You should also avoid topical retinoids and antibiotics for at least a week before your appointment. Don’t take any over-the-counter pain medications, such as ibuprofen, which can interfere with proper healing.

Be sure to wear sunscreen on your face during the two weeks before your appointment. Avoid shaving, waxing, or using any hair removal products on your skin during the week before your treatment.
