Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin improvement treatment that implements your body’s own natural healing processes. The procedure uses tiny needle pricks on the surface of your skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.

These two proteins have important jobs in maintaining your skin’s health and appearance. Collagen generates healthy, new skin with structure and keeps it hydrated, while elastin keeps your skin tight.

At your appointment, a member of the PureMD team puts a numbing cream on your skin. Then, they use a rolling tool or pen to gently prick your skin. The pricks are evenly spread out across your targeted area for even results, leaving tiny channels in your skin that make it easy to absorb nutrients. Your doctor applies a serum or calming treatment to end your appointment.

How does microneedling improve my skin?

If you have skin imperfections that have developed over time, microneedling can target them to make them less noticeable. Microneedling is frequently used to target:

  • Acne scars
  • Scars from injuries
  • Large pores
  • Wrinkles and lines
  • Spots and discoloration
  • Loose skin

Most patients who use microneedling only get the treatment on their face. However, if you have scars or stretch marks elsewhere on your body, microneedling can improve their appearance as well.

Does microneedling hurt?

The mere mention of needles causes many patients who seek skin improvement to run for the hills, or at least choose laser treatments or facials instead.

With the use of a numbing cream before the needling begins, you’ll feel little or no sensation during the procedure. Once the cream wears off, your skin may feel slightly irritated for no more than a few days.

Am I a good candidate for microneedling?

Nearly anyone who is in generally good health and wants younger-looking skin is a candidate for microneedling. You’re likely to be approved for the treatment if you:

  • Aren’t pregnant
  • Don’t have active skin conditions (psoriasis, eczema, etc.)
  • Don’t scar easily
  • Have no injuries or wounds on your skin

If your provider at PureMD decides the treatment isn’t right for you, they’ll help you explore alternate treatments with similar results.

Smooth and healthy-looking skin is always in vogue. If your skin’s tone or texture could use improvement, schedule a consultation at PureMD online or by phone today for comfortable and effective microneedling treatments.
