Microneedling FAQs

Generally, you can expect to see results about 48 to 72 hours after your first session, thanks to protein enzymes that produce collagen spiking. More significant results become visible over time.

To see the maximum improvement, we recommend three to six treatments, spaced several weeks apart. Throughout the course of your treatments and the following six to 12 months, your skin will continue to improve. New collagen usually lasts for at least several years, which sets microneedling apart. 

Be sure only to use tepid water (never hot) when cleansing the area for at least the first 48 hours after your treatment. Dry the area very gently without rubbing. We also recommend avoiding touching the treated area. If you need to, be sure to wash your hands first to avoid possible infections. 

Avoid wearing makeup for at least 12 hours after your session, ideally until the following morning. We highly recommend only using mineral-based makeup after microneedling, as it provides natural SPF, which can aid the healing process. 

We’ll provide you with in-depth care instructions and product recommendations during your consultation or at the time of your treatment. 

Mirconeedling, like many of our spa’s non-surgical options, pairs beautifully with treatments such as injectables, BOTOX® & Fillers, Hydrafacial, laser treatments and medical grade skincare. To learn more and create a custom regimen specific to you, contact us to schedule your consultation today.

Pricing varies widely depending on the area you want to treat and how many sessions. We’ll discuss all financial details at your initial consultation and offer several financing options to fit every budget.

Amazing. I never doubted that I had an experienced doctor. I loved everyone. Recovery was exactly like she said. I have never regretted the decision for one minute. I went from a fake 36C to a “real” 36DD. Over muscle. Everyone says they don’t even look fake. They feel awesome. I would do anything with Dr. Parkins.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a non-surgical medical spa treatment that contours and firms skin on the neck, face, hands, and body. It works by naturally stimulating your collagen (which regulates skin appearance and texture). Best of all, though, it’s painless and downtime-free, and you can get it done at any time of year. You’ll be free to return to work the next day, and no one will notice or guess you’ve had a treatment done.

Your pores will reduce in size, and fine lines and wrinkles will soften. Increased collagen production can also help with the appearance of surgical or acne scars and stretch marks.

Patients can expect the following results:

  • Reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Tighter skin
  • Smaller pores
  • Improved overall skin texture and tone
  • Immediate results (pain and downtime-free)
  • Acne relief

In some cases, a combination of BOTOX® and dermal fillers is the best choice for comprehensively addressing signs of facial aging.

Benefits of Microneedling

Microneedling is a form of collagen induction therapy. With the help of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body, microneedling effectively rejuvenates the appearance of your skin. Aside from the signs of aging, triggering the body’s natural repair and healing systems can reduce:

  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Hypopigmentation
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne scars
  • Scars resulting from surgery or injury

You can get microneedling beyond the face, too. Patients can see improvement in the neck, arms, legs, back, abdomen, and hands as well. Each treatment takes about 15 to 30 minutes. If you want to treat larger or multiple areas, treatment time can vary. Results tend to show within a few days of treatment, continuing to improve for several weeks as the body’s collagen naturally regenerates. Some patients opt for multiple treatments throughout the year to see the most significant cosmetic benefits. 

Microneedling vs. Laser Treatments

Though each of these treatments work to provide age-defying results, they all use different technology and target varying tissue. Laser treatments use light energy to affect hyperpigmentation. As such, these treatments are best suited to dealing with broken blood vessels, discoloration of the skin, and spider veins. Microneedling, on the other hand, creates thousands of tiny injuries, triggering the body’s natural healing response.

Microneedling treats the entire skin area, promoting skin cell turnover and collagen rejuvenation, whereas lasers target specific areas. Some of the benefits of microneedling include:

  • Low risk of hyperpigmentation and scarring
  • Safer for darker skin tones than most laser-based rejuvenation options
  • Suitable for sensitive and thin skin types
  • Cost-effective
  • Safe for use on areas where laser resurfacing or chemical peels may not be, such as around the lips and eyes
  • Leaves the outermost layers of skin intact
  • Long-[term results thanks to collagen building

Preparing for a Microneedling Treatment

Before you come in, there are some essential steps to take. Avoid Retin-A and alpha-hydroxy products, as well as auto-immune therapies, 12 hours before your treatment. It’s best to avoid taking any aspirin and steering clear of direct sun exposure for the 24 hours leading up to the procedure as well (we will not be able to perform microneedling on sunburned skin). 

Microneedling: The Procedure, Recovery, and Possible Side Effects

Most patients say microneedling feels like sandpaper rubbing across the skin. Some people’s skin becomes red and tight during or after treatment, similar to a sunburn. We’ll apply a topical numbing cream before your procedure to aid comfort. 

After your treatment, your skin will look a bit red and may feel tingly, warm, and tighter than normal. These are all normal side effects, and subside on their own one or two hours following your session. Some slight redness may persist in minimal spots or areas for more than 24 hours. This inflammatory reaction, which is a crucial part of the rejuvenation process tends to be short-term and significantly fades after a few days. Some patients with very sensitive skin may take upwards of a week before fully recovering. 

Get Your Healthy Glow Back

If you want to see firmer, tighter, younger-looking skin, but don’t want to commit to the cost or downtime associated with surgery, microneedling can help. At Parkins Plastic Surgery, our expert team offers a wide variety of anti-aging treatments to boost your confidence and help you feel like you again.
