What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure used to improve the appearance of damaged skin caused by aging, sun, and acne scarring. It improves skin tone and texture, diminishes the appearance of scars, and provides an overall rejuvenated appearance.

In a simple office procedure, a special tool called a dermaroller, an electrical device with tiny needles on the end, is gently rolled over the skin. This creates controlled microinjuries that cause minimal bleeding and stimulate wound healing. This helps remodel scars, reduces hyperpigmentation, reduces enlarged pores, and smooths fine lines and wrinkles. Scar tissue is broken down, and new collagen and elastin are produced to plump and firm the skin, improving skin tone, texture, firmness, and scarring.

It is suitable for all skin types and tones and helps a number of unwanted skin issues. Post-treatment recovery is quick and provides significant results. Microneedling is often combined with topical therapeutic products or may be combined with other cosmetic or surgical procedures to enhance results.

Microneedling addresses many skin concerns, including wrinkles and fine lines, acne scars, enlarged pores, stretch marks, skin tone, and texture.

  • Microneedling combined with other treatments can improve male and female pattern hair loss and alopecia.
  • Microneedling with topical vitamin C is safe and effective in treating melasma.
  • Microneedling effectively treats acne scars and may be combined with other remedies to enhance results.

Microneedling treats all skin types and tones to address various concerns. During your consultation the aestheticians at Bliss Dermatology will listen to your concerns, evaluate your skin, and recommend the best treatment options for your needs.

Microneedling results are incremental. Typically, a series of 3 treatments is recommended. However, the number of treatments and the time between treatments may vary depending on your unique skin type.

Treatments are usually spaced in 4-week intervals. Patients with deep wrinkles, advanced sun damage, stretch marks, or severe scarring usually require additional treatments to achieve the desired results.

Most patients report seeing positive changes 1-2 weeks after the first treatment. However, new collagen and elastin growth takes time, therefore full results may not be apparent for several months.

As you age, collagen production naturally slows down. Microneedling produces results through the stimulation of growth factors and collagen. The results are permanent, however, periodic maintenance treatments will be needed. When scars and stretch marks are treated, the results are permanent. Bliss Dermatology may recommend adding a daily retinoid product to your skincare regime to help retain your results.
