WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that improves the tone and texture of the skin. It is beneficial for those concerned with the early signs of aging, like wrinkles and fine lines, as well as textural and complexion issues, like acne scars or pigmentation. Microneedling stimulates natural healing processes of the body to create new collagen and elastin to provide smoother, more youthful appearing skin. For such a safe and simple procedure, it is very effective with minimal downtime.
How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling involves the use of tiny “microneedles” that gently create channels in the top layer of the skin. These new channels stimulate wound healing processes, leading to all kinds of benefits:
- Softening fine lines and wrinkles
- Reducing acne scars and minimizing pore size
- Reducing and evening out pigmentation differences
- Increasing firmness and elasticity
- Breaking down scar tissue
What to Expect with Microneedling
The procedure takes about 40 minutes for a full-face treatment to about 60 minutes for the full face, neck, and décolletage. PRP may be used during the procedure for enhanced results. Only after a few days, most patients notice their skin is tighter and brighter. On a short-term basis, the skin will appear more radiant and plumper. As the skin undergoes healing processes, collagen will be produced, providing firmer and smoother skin.

What exactly is microneedling?
Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment to tighten and rejuvenate your skin. A natural fibrous protein, collagen helps keep your skin smooth, supple, and tight. As you get older, your natural supply of collagen are depleted and your skin gets less elastic and thin. Microneedling creates tiny wounds in your skin. These micro-injuries prompt your skin to generate new skin cell growth and increase collagen production. After a short recovery period, your complexion looks brighter, firmer, and healthier.
Can I combine other treatments with microneedling?
During the microneedling process, channels are created that help other treatments to reach the deeper layers. This is why microneedling is frequently done before other skin treatment, like special serums or PRP (platelet-rich plasma). Microneedling with PRP has become known as the vampire facial. In your initial consultation, Dr. Schuering can talk about which treatments would enhance your microneedling and which would most benefit your skin.
