Microneedling

A simple, non-surgical procedure for firmer and smoother skin.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a non-surgical procedure that uses tiny needles to create microchannels in the skin. These channels prompt your body’s natural wound healing processes and collagen production.
The results are increased firmness and tighter pores, as well as improved fine lines and wrinkles for smoother skin. Your complexion will look healthier overall.

Our Microneedling Service Can Help You:

Decrease fine lines and wrinkles

This treatment helps stimulate collagen production. Collagen is the protein that keeps skin firm and tight, so you’ll see improved elasticity after just a few sessions with us!

Improve skin tone, pore size, and skin texture

 

Over time, microneedling can leave skin looking smoother, brighter, and even-toned.

Improve acne scars

 

Microneedling is one of the most popular treatments for improving acne scarring because it encourages new collagen growth in these areas.

Increase absorption of skincare products and facial treatments

This treatment creates microchannels just deep enough for our serums and creams to enter into the dermis. This means your treatments and products will be more effective!

What Happens When You Get Microneedling From D&M Treatments?

  • Your skin will be numbed with a topical anesthetic cream.
  • We’ll cleanse your face before treatment and apply a hydrating anti-aging serum to protect your skin.
  • Our technician uses a handheld device that glides across your face, creating tiny punctures in the skin every 0.25 mm. You may feel a stinging sensation, which is normal. Some patients experience redness and swelling right after treatment, but this should dissipate within an hour or two.  You may also have some pinpoint bleeding. Treatment length is approximately one hour for the face, neck, and décolleté.
  • After the procedure is complete, we’ll apply a soothing moisturizer to soothe the skin. Keep in mind that you may experience some redness and swelling after treatment, but this will subside within 24 hours or less.

 FAQs

The results of a microneedling session are not permanent—however, the benefits of microneedling can last for several months. If you would like to maintain the results of a microneedling session, it's best to arrange maintenance treatments with your clinician, which could be in six to twelve-month intervals.
Because the needles are only 0.25 millimeters deep, microneedling pens are generally regarded as safe. Microneedling devices are available in do-it-yourself forms. However, specialists advise against using them yourself since you might not correctly strerilize the needles and inadvertently harm your skin.
Microneedling is considered to be a treatment for scarring. Hence, it shouldn't leave scars.
Acne breakouts can happen to some people following a microneedling procedure. However, these should be minor and will go away on their own.
Microneedling uses fine needles that prick your skin. During the skin-pricking process, your skin produces more collagen to heal the small wounds from the needles. The new collagen that's formed will help smooth out your skin's appearance, and fill in fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. To that end, skin needling may be used for burn scars, surgical scars, and acne scars.
No, microneedling will not make scars worse. In fact, it is a procedure that aims to improve the appearance of scars over time. Microneedling works by stimulating the production of collagen, which can help to fill in and smooth out scars. If you are concerned about the appearance of your scars, speak with a dermatologist to see if microneedling is right for you.
Microneedling is one of the most potent and straightforward acne treatments available. It results in smoother skin, fewer facial flaws, and improved skin hydration. However, if a person is currently experiencing acne, it is recommended to wait until the breakout is completely healed before getting a microneedling treatment.
Skin needling might induce discoloration if the person undergoing the procedure is on certain medications that hinder melanin production. This may also happen if the technique is not performed correctly or the patient has a history of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Microneedling stimulates the production of collagen in your skin. The procedure's pinpricks produce minor skin irritation, and the skin adapts by producing new collagen-rich tissue. As a result, the new skin tissue has a more consistent tone and texture. Of course, it's only natural for the skin to lose collagen as it ages or due to an accident. But microneedling can induce the production of collagen to encourage the skin to build new tissue, resulting in tighter skin.
Microneedling is a quick, very safe procedure that takes about 30 minutes. During the session, you will receive numbing cream and feel tiny needles puncturing your skin at different depths to create thousands of microscopic channels in the dermis. Afterward, we apply a serum which contains growth factors to help stimulate collagen production and healing. Patients describe the whole procedure as being mildly irritating, but tolerable.
Following microneedling, your doctor should provide you with specific recommendations on how to properly care for your skin. Be sure to follow the directions carefully because they may be tailored to your medical history or skin type. In general, within the first 24 hours after the procedure, be sure to avoid sun exposure, wear sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher), and avoid using any harsh skincare products. For the next few days, you might expect to have redness, swelling and even some dry patches. But don't panic – these are normal side effects of microneedling. Let your skin heal and don't try to speed up the process by using harsh products or picking at your skin. Try to avoid wearing makeup, rigorous activities at the gym, and products that contain alcohol or retinol. You may be able to continue your regular skincare routine after 72 hours have passed.
The needles cause micro-injuries, which set off the body's natural wound-healing process. Microneedling is not typically recommended during pregnancy since wound healing and the synthesis of new collagen demand vitamins and nutrients that would otherwise be needed by the newborn.
Most people see some improvement in their skin within a few days of their first treatment, but the final results usually take about two to four weeks to appear. It's important to remember that everyone's skin is different, so results may vary. To maintain your results, it is recommended to get microneedling treatments about once every three to six months.
There is a risk of scarring when microneedling is performed on acne-prone skin. So it's best to consult your doctor before undergoing the treatment if you suffer from acne.
Medical needling, a procedure handled by a specialist or a trained skincare expert, is typically done at a skincare center or a spa. Cosmetic needling, on the other hand, can be done at home.
If you have scars, wrinkles, or hyperpigmentation, you may be a suitable candidate for microneedling. However, those who have persistent skin infections must first get rid of them before starting this type of treatment.
Microneedling works by puncturing the skin with tiny needles. While it isn't particularly painful, it can be unpleasant if done incorrectly. When microneedling is done by a professional and a topical anesthetic is used to numb the skin, the procedure can actually be quite comfortable.
