Microneedling Q & A

What can microneedling treat?

Microneedling is a regenerative type of therapy designed to stimulate new skin cell growth and fresh tissue development (including collagen). This treatment involves gliding a needle-filled dermaroller over your skin to create hundreds of tiny micro-wounds.

Because your skin becomes injured, a cascade of healing events takes place. Cells start regenerating and quickly pushing away the old, damaged cells. Over the following weeks, as your skin heals and new tissues rise to the surface, you can experience a variety of benefits. Microneedling can treat:

  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Large pores
  • Dull, lackluster skin
  • Hyperpigmentation issues

Microneedling is even ideal for minimizing the appearance of surgical, ance, and injury scars.


What happens during microneedling?

During your microneedling session at Essence Skin Clinic, your practitioner sits down with you and discusses your skin care goals. After gathering skin care products that are best suited for your skin, your practitioner will have you lie back on the spa table.

Your microneedling treatment begins with a thorough cleansing. Next, your aesthetic specialist starts moving the microneedling instrument over your treatment area. The final step involves applying a toner and soothing hydrating product to encourage healing.

How long is the recovery after microneedling?

Because the purpose of microneedling is to stimulate tissue and collagen production, it takes several weeks to experience optimal benefits. It’s normal to have redness, inflammation, and swelling for the first 48-72 hours after microneedling.

Once those initial side effects wear off, you start noticing visibly brighter, healthier, firmer skin. You should experience a dramatic improvement as quickly as two to three weeks after your microneedling session at Essence Skin Clinic, with continuing improvements for up to four to six weeks.

How often do I need microneedling treatments?

Most men and women experience superior benefits after a single microneedling treatment at Essence Skin Clinic. If you have deeper imperfections though, you could need about two to three sessions, each spaced at least one month apart, to achieve optimal results.

To stay on top of chronic skin issues and effects of aging, once you achieve your optimal skin benefits, plan on scheduling preventive microneedling sessions about two to three times per year.
