Whether the patient is dealing with acne scarring or fine lines and wrinkles, skin issues can impact their emotional state.

What is microneedling?
Microneedling, also known as derma-rolling or collagen induction, is a cosmetic procedure that can treat multiple skin issues. For over 20 years, it’s been used in multiple forms to address everything from acne scars to signs of aging in the skin. It’s quickly become one of the industry standards for skin treatment mostly due to the evolution of its technology. The device has tiny needles which roll onto the skin, making ‘micro-injuries’ that stimulate new collagen growth.

What does the procedure entail?
The practitioner begins the process by applying a topical numbing agent to the skin to ensure the patient’s comfort throughout the treatment. Once the patient’s face has been thoroughly prepped, the microneedling device is run across the skin in various patterns to stimulate collagen production. The face is then wiped to remove any blood.
With microneedling, the healing process can take anywhere from 24 to 72 hours, depending on the extent of the treatment. Patients can return to work immediately following the treatment and put on makeup once 24 hours have elapsed.
