Microneedling Q&A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a quick treatment that uses minuscule sterilized needles to puncture your skin at even depths and intervals. The needle punctures aren’t deep or large enough to cause much discomfort, but they stimulate your skin’s natural healing mechanisms. As a result of the treatment, your skin heals the needlepoints themselves as well as other defects around them.

Part of the healing process stimulated by microneedling is the growth of collagen fibers, which reinforce your skin and keep it firm. Another name for microneedling is collagen induction therapy because this process is responsible for the skin improvements you enjoy from the procedure. 

The team at Destinations Medical Spa Los Angeles advises you on how to care for your skin as it heals from microneedling to get the best results possible. 

What results can I get from microneedling?

Basic microneedling can offer stunning results for your skin. The degree of your improvements depends on the depth of the needles and whether or not you enhance your experience with specialty microneedling procedures. 

You can rely on microneedling to minimize a variety of skin concerns including:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Acne
  • Scars
  • Dark spots
  • Large pores
  • Loose skin
  • Stretch marks

You can target these features on your face or on the skin in other areas such as your hands, neck, and chest area. 

How can I enhance my microneedling experience?

Destinations Medical Spa Los Angeles offers several different options for microneedling that go beyond the basic treatment. You can get:

Microneedling with SkinPen®

SkinPen is an advanced microneedling device that offers consistent and even results every time. The pen-shaped handpiece gives the team extreme control and precision to treat skin in targeted areas like your neck or face.  

Microneedling with PRP

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a rejuvenating substance that contains growth factors and platelets from your blood. These components are needled into your skin to further stimulate the healing process, which offers enhanced results.

With either microneedling procedure, you may need several sessions to optimize your results. You can also get radiofrequency microneedling with Morpheus8 on your face or body.
