Microneedling Q & A
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a safe, effective, and minimally invasive method for facial rejuvenation. During the procedure, a certified medical assistant at Bella Figure Laser Institute makes hundreds of small, superficial punctures in your skin with an instrument that looks like a roller.
Microneedling improves the skin on your face by releasing a cascade of healing properties as the tiny puncture wounds heal. It increases production of collagen and encourages new skin cells to form. This process helps your body heal itself from the inside out, re-invigorating the cells beneath the surface of your skin.
Bella Figure offers customized microneedling treatments tailored to your concerns and aesthetic goals. They’re also a certified provider of the vampire facial, which combines microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment.
What is microneedling used for?
Microneedling is a proven, safe, and effective treatment for a variety of skin problems, including:
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Uneven complexion
- Saggy skin
What should I expect from a microneedling treatment?
First, a certified medical assistant at Bella Figure Laser Institute cleans your face to prepare it for treatment. Then, they apply a topical anesthetic to your face to minimize discomfort throughout the procedure.
During the microneedling process, the medical assistant uses a small roller with attached microneedles to gently make small perforations in your face while stretching your skin taut. The depth of the punctures depends on the kind of skin condition being treated.
Microneedling can be combined with PRP therapy to achieve a more youthful appearance.
What are the side effects of microneedling?
Microneedling involves a quick recovery time. You may experience redness and swelling resembling a sunburn that should disappear after 12-48 hours. The micro-perforations heal within an hour and risk of infection is very low.
The micro-perforations for improving acne scars are a bit deeper than the perforations used for erasing wrinkles. Depending on the kind of treatment you need, recovery time might be a bit longer.
