What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that involves using a device with fine needles to create tiny, controlled punctures (micro-injuries) in the skin’s surface. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing response, leading to the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential for maintaining skin firmness and elasticity.

The microchannels created during the procedure also enhance the absorption of skincare products. Microneedling is effective for addressing issues like fine lines, wrinkles, and scars, and it is commonly performed by skincare professionals for optimal results with minimal downtime.

Dr. Alexa highly recommends microneedling as one of her favorite treatments, and at our facility, we utilize the FDA-approved Dermapen 4 for this procedure.

How does Microneedling work?


Microneedling is particularly effective in collagen induction because it directly stimulates the skin’s natural healing mechanisms, leading to the production of new collagen. This process not only enhances skin texture and firmness but also remodels the newly formed collagen fibers over time, resulting in long-lasting improvements. The controlled nature of the micro-injuries ensures a consistent and uniform response, making it superior to other collagen induction methods. Additionally, the micro-channels created by the needles enhance the absorption of topical treatments applied during or after the procedure, such as hyaluronic acid and vitamin serums, which can further boost collagen production and skin rejuvenation. This combination of direct stimulation and enhanced product absorption makes microneedling one of the best techniques for promoting collagen production and improving overall skin health.

How is the treatment administered?

The treatment is typically administered in a clinical setting by a trained skincare professional. Before the procedure, a topical numbing cream may be applied to minimize discomfort. The microneedling device, Dermapen 4,  is then passed over the targeted area, creating controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin. This process helps improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of scars, fine lines, and wrinkles, and enhances overall skin rejuvenation. The treatment duration varies depending on the specific goals and areas being treated.

Side effects

Microneedling is generally considered a safe procedure, but like any cosmetic treatment, it may come with some side effects. Common side effects include temporary redness, swelling, and mild discomfort during and after the procedure. Skin might feel tight or appear slightly sunburned for a day or two. In some cases, minor bruising may occur. These effects are usually short-lived and resolve within a few days.
