Microneedling Q & A

How does microneedling work?

Microneedling, often nicknamed “collagen induction therapy,” involves triggering your body’s natural healing responses by creating hundreds of micro wounds. During your treatment, your aesthetician glides the dermaroller over your skin. Because the dermaroller contains dozens of very fine needles, it gently punctures your skin with each pass.

Cells signal to your brain that an injury is occurring, so the cascade of healing processes can begin. Blood rushes to your skin tissues, which delivers powerful growth factors directly to your cells. These growth factors help cells quickly turnover and build new tissues, including skin-firming collagen.

What are the benefits of microneedling?

Microneedling is a safe, effective, minimally invasive treatment that provides a host of benefits. You should consider microneedling from New Look Laser Medical to minimize the appearance of:

  • Injury, acne, and surgical scars
  • Sagging or loose skin
  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Stretch marks
  • Sun damage
  • Age spots 

Microneedling isn’t just for your face either. This innovative treatment can restore firmer, more youthful skin on your décolleté, shoulders, or other problem areas.

When will I have results from microneedling?

You’re going to have some redness, inflammation, and soreness after your microneedling session. These are all good signs of blood flow increasing in the area and healing taking place. Your skin heals itself rather quickly.

The team at New Look Laser Medical find that microneedling starts providing gradual improvements in your skin’s tone, texture, and overall appearance in as little as a couple of weeks. Improvements continue surfacing week after week.

If you have more problematic issues, like deeper scars or wrinkles, your dedicated practitioner could recommend two to four microneedling sessions, each spaced about a month apart. While results from microneedling are entirely long-lasting, you’re going to continue to age.

Continue booking follow-up microneedling sessions at New Look Laser Medical once or twice a year — or as recommended — for optimal age-defying skin maintenance.
