Microneedling Q & A

How does microneedling work?

As you get older, skin firming components known as collagen and elastin break down. This is why wrinkles, lines, and sagging skin start to develop. Microneedling works to regenerate new skin cells and tissues, including collagen and elastin, so your skin looks younger and smoother.

During treatments, your aesthetic specialist glides a dermaroller over your skin. This specialized tool contains hundreds of tiny needles that gently prick your skin. Your brain immediately receives a signal that your skin is injured, which triggers a cascade of healing events.

Blood rushes to the surface of your skin, delivering nutrients and powerful healing cells with it. Over the following days and weeks, old, damaged cells are shed, and all that fresh new tissue underneath starts to rise to the surface.

What are the benefits of microneedling?

Your customized microneedling session at Dutch Hollow Medical Day Spa can help with a multitude of skin issues, all with a single treatment. Microneedling can:

  • Minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles
  • Improve skin elasticity and overall firmness
  • Minimize pore size and improve complexion
  • Decrease the appearance of scars, including acne scars
  • Reduce the signs of sun damage, as well as age spots

If you have skin concerns you’d like addressed, schedule a skin care consultation at Dutch Hollow Medical Day Spa to find out if microneedling is right for you.

When will I have results after microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure and requires a short downtime for skin healing. Depending on how quickly you heal and the sensitivity of your skin, it’s normal to experience some redness, soreness, and irritation for the first 72 hours. This is all normal, and the team at Dutch Hollow Medical Day Spa can help you find the right clinical-grade topical solution to help your skin heal as quickly as possible.

Once any initial side effects subside, you probably start to notice a more youthful appearance with each passing day. You can achieve improved results as quickly as 2-3 weeks after your microneedling session, with continuing improvements for several weeks after that.
