Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling, also known as collagen-induction therapy, is a cosmetic treatment that creates controlled micro-injuries on the surface of your skin. These tiny injuries trigger your skin’s healing process, increasing the production of collagen and elastin.

Collagen and elastin are structural proteins in the dermal layer of your skin. These proteins are responsible for your youthful skin’s strength and resilience. Production of these proteins decreases as you get older, contributing to the visible signs of aging. 

By increasing the production of these proteins, microneedling improves the look of your skin. 

What are the benefits of microneedling?

Microneedling naturally improves the tone and texture of your skin from the inside out. The cosmetic treatment offers many benefits. 

In addition to freshening your look, Aesthetic Lab uses microneedling to:

  • Soften wrinkles
  • Improve skin tone
  • Reduce hyperpigmentation
  • Shrink large pores
  • Improve skin elasticity

The estheticians also offer deeper microneedling treatments to reduce the appearance of scar tissue and stretch marks. 

Depending on your beauty goals and skin care needs, the estheticians at Aesthetic Lab may recommend adding platelet-rich plasma to your microneedling treatments. 

What can I expect during microneedling?

Your provider at Aesthetic Lab creates a personalized microneedling treatment plan and reviews what you can expect during your initial consultation. 

They apply a numbing lotion to your skin before your treatment to minimize discomfort. Then, they place the microneedling tool on your skin to create micro-injuries. 

Your microneedling session may take up to 30 minutes.

What happens after microneedling?

Your skin may be red following your microneedling session, but these side effects disappear within a few days. While your skin heals, it may tighten and peel. You should notice improvements in your look within a week.

Aesthetic Lab recommends a series of 4-6 microneedling sessions set about a month apart to get the best results.
