How Does Microneedling Work?

Microneedling uses a special handheld device that features tiny micro needles. SkinPen® microneedling uses tiny needles to quickly puncture the surface of the targeted skin, creating microscopic channels (hence the “micro” in microneedling). 

These microscopic channels prompt your body to activate its wound-healing processes, which are flush with – you guessed it – collagen and elastin. These building blocks are foundational for great skin, as they can firm and tighten sagging skin, increase cellular turnover, and even improve the look of wrinkles and old scars.

Over time and with regular SkinPen® microneedling treatments, you can expect firmer, younger-looking skin that’s so radiant, you’ll look like you’re constantly standing in front of your own filter light.

SkinPen® Microneedling Advantages

At Total Dermatology, we employ the SkinPen® microneedling device. SkinPen® was the first FDA-approved microneedling device. There are many things that set SkinPen® microneedling apart from any other microneedling technology. 

SkinPen® microneedling is the most accurate form of microneedling. This is due to the mechanism being housed in the disposable tip of the device, which gives your aesthetician complete control over the device. Other devices do not feature this technology and may not be as accurate as a result. This could lead to targeting healthy skin that does not require treatment. 

SkinPen® has proven to be the safest and most reliable microneedling device on the market, which is why we use it here at Total Dermatology.

Microneedling Results: What to Expect

Microneedling results aren’t permanent, so if you like what you see, it’s important to schedule regular maintenance sessions. Initially, your microneedling sessions can be placed one month apart. Once you achieve your final results, you can schedule a microneedling session one every six to twelve months.

Your microneedling results will usually be visible after your second or third treatment. Most people need three to six microneedling treatments to see their best results.

How to Maintain Your Microneedling Results

If you love your microneedling results, you can maintain them with the following steps:

  • Drink plenty of water
  • Invest in a good skincare regimen 
  • Avoid sun damage and always wear sunscreen
  • Limit your time out in harsh environments
  • Schedule regular appointments with your dermatologist!
