Microneedling Q & A

 

 

What is microneedling?

Microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy, is a treatment that uses a specially made device equipped with multiple tiny needles to create micro holes in your skin. The tiny holes don’t damage your outer layer of skin and aren’t visible to the naked eye, but they do trigger your body to shift into a state of wound healing. 

Immediately following microneedling, your skin flushes nutrient-rich blood and healing factors to boost the health of the tissue.

The final way your skin responds to microneedling is through skin remodeling, in which your skin replaces the micro wounds with new tissue and blood vessels. You produce more collagen, a valuable protein that gives your skin strength and smoothness.

 

At Replenish Health & Wellness, the team provides AquaGold® fine touch™ microneedling, too. This procedure uses a special device equipped with 24-karat gold needles that deliver healing compounds, such as vitamin C and antioxidants, during the microneedling process.

What skin complaints benefit from microneedling?

Microneedling can be as effective as many laser skin treatments. People seek out the procedure to address:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Skin dullness
  • Acne scarring or keloid scarring 
  • Uneven skin texture

Microneedling induces healing but doesn’t cause the formation of scar tissue, making it a valuable treatment for most skin types.

Does microneedling hurt?

Each microneedling treatment lasts about 30 minutes. Most people tolerate the procedure well, despite feeling mild discomfort. 

The registered nurse staff at Replenish Health & Wellness Center provide a topical numbing cream prior to treatment to ease any sensation.

 

Here at Replenish, each IV is custom formulated to treat the skin along with detoxing the body. With a healthy body, you will have healthy skin. We call this "Dermonutrition" - skin backed by vitamins.

Do I need to schedule downtime following a microneedling session?

You may have a day or two of redness and inflammation following microneedling, much like a mild sunburn. But these side effects fade quickly, and you don’t need to schedule official downtime from work or daily tasks.

Some people do experience rough skin, tightness, peeling, and itching for a few days. Extra moisturizer helps ease this discomfort and — bonus — your skin is extra receptive to this moisturizer or serums following microneedling because you’ve opened up your pores. You may choose to lie low until your skin clears.
