Micro-Needling Q & A

What is micro-needling?

Micro-needling uses fine needles to make microscopic tears within the skin, stimulating collagen production and new cell growth. The result is skin that is refreshed, younger-looking, and less wrinkled. Island Aesthetics & Dermatology uses the latest advances in micro-needling technologies and procedures to produce flawless results, time and time again.

What are the advantages of micro-needling?

The benefits you can expect after undergoing micro-needling at Island Aesthetics & Dermatology include skin that is:

  • Smoother
  • Tighter
  • Revitalized
  • Younger-looking
  • Glowing
  • More beautiful
  • Less-pigmented

In addition to stimulating collagen and elastin production, micro-needling reduces fine lines, wrinkles, rough skin, laxity, and other undesirable signs of aging. 

It can also diminish surgical scars, acne scarring, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, uneven skin texture, and large pores. Micro-needling is highly effective for treating skin conditions on your face or body.

Is micro-needling right for me?

Anyone can benefit from micro-needling at Island Aesthetics & Dermatology. Your cosmetic specialist reviews your medical history and beauty goals. They examine the skin in areas of concern before tailoring your treatment plan. 

Micro-needling is suitable for all skin colors and types.

What should I expect during micro-needling procedures?

During micro-needling, the Island Aesthetics & Dermatology team cleans your skin, numbs the treatment area, and uses a handheld device containing tiny needles to make small punctures in the skin’s surface. It might feel a little like sandpaper, but the procedure isn’t painful. 

The length of time each treatment takes depends on the size of the areas treated. It typically lasts about 30 minutes.

Your provider may also apply platelets from your blood to the treatment site with micro-needling. Doing so further stimulates new cell generation, promotes healthy tissue growth, repairs wounds, and enhances new collagen production.

What happens after micro-needling treatment?

After micro-needling, the treated skin may be a bit swollen, red, or tender for a short time. It might feel like a sunburn, but treated skin often heals within 24-72 hours. Over the next few weeks and months, skin cells regenerate, and your skin looks younger, vibrant, and healthier.
