Having wrinkle-free skin, is something many people desire. Especially as they age

Microneedling is a procedure that can help Charlotte, NC residents look more youthful and refreshed. But, before you decide this is something you want to try, it’s important to know what it is, how it works and what you can expect after treatment.

Q: What is microneedling?

A: Microneedling involved the use of small needles rolled over the face using a derma roller. These needles are quite small, so don’t picture acupuncture needles being rolled into your face. Instead, the needles poke out of a roller and are only enough to poke your skin.

Q: What is the purpose of microneedling?

A: This is used to help make skin firmer and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It can sometimes be used to reduce the appearance of scars as well.

Q: How does microneedling work?

A: Microneedling works by stimulating collagen production in the area it’s treating. Collagen is what gives skin its elasticity. By increasing collagen production, your skin will become firmer and wrinkles will fill in. This is what gives your face a more youthful look.

Q: Where can microneedling be done on the body?

A: Microneedling is typically done on the face. However, it can sometimes be done other places, such as when someone undergoes the treatment to reduce the appearance of scars. Ask your esthetician if you have a specific area you are wondering about.

Q: How long does it take to recover from treatment?

A: One of the benefits is that it is noninvasive. This means you are awake the entire time. You can return to activities after your treatment is complete, unlike a facelift which would require weeks to recover from.

Q: What are the side effects of microneedling?

A: Following your appointment, you will experience some redness on the face or treatment area. If this makes you self conscious, you may want to take some time between your appointment and returning to work or other activities.

Q: Is one treatment enough?

A: Multiple microneedling treatments may be needed to achieve full results and maintain them. Ask your estititian if you have questions about how many treatments you’ll need and how often.
