Go Over the Facts About Microneedling Therapy
Microneedling – or collagen induction therapy – requires healthcare professionals to create many tiny holes throughout the top layer of your skin. Generally, professionals use either a pen device or a very fine roller to create these micro-punctures.
Medical professionals use these controlled injuries to create very small tears in your skin. Your body reacts by healing these small tears through increased production of collagen. The increased collagen often gives your skin a more youthful appearance.

Results of Microneedling Treatments
What can you expect after a microneedling appointment? According to the American Academy of Dermatology Association (AAD), this treatment works very well to minimize the appearance of:
- Fines lines
- Small wrinkles
- Large pores
- Stretch marks
Medical technicians must cause micro-injuries deep enough to result in bleeding to see these results, so you should only work with skilled professionals. Additionally, similar therapies provided by non-medical facilities often do not go deep enough to significantly affect your appearance.
Areas Where Microneedling Treatments Work
Many people think first of the face when considering a microneedling treatment. This therapy works very well on lines around the eyes, forehead, and mouth. However, you may also schedule an appointment for a procedure involving your arms, neck, hands, or belly.
You can speak with a medical professional about other areas where you would like to consider microneedling. Our team can discuss the benefits and potential use of this treatment with you.

The Timeline for Your Microneedling Treatment
One of the significant benefits associated with microneedling involves the relatively low time commitment you need to make for each appointment. Many people finish a treatment appointment in under a half-hour.
Additionally, you do not have to set aside time to recover from microneedling, which does not qualify as an invasive medical procedure. After your appointment, you can go back to your day without worrying.
How Long Does It Take for Microneedling to Show Results?
You may begin seeing results with your very first microneedling appointment. However, it does take around four to six weeks before you begin to see the significant changes caused by the treatment.
Most patients require more than one treatment to get the full benefits of a microneedling treatment. Therefore, our team may recommend four to six treatments spread out over several months to ensure you get the best results.
How Long Does a Microneedling Treatment Last?
Microneedling treatments generally last around five months. However, your treatment may last longer if you receive multiple appointments or if you add PRP treatments to your appointment. You can discuss all your options by reaching out to us in Palm Coast.
Possible Side Effects of Microneedling
Microneedling comes with many benefits for patients in Palm Coast, Florida. However, it is always a good idea to consider the possible side-effects before you sign up for a medical treatment.
The Cleveland Clinic has researched microneedling treatments and provided information about some possible side effects of the procedure. Patients may experience.
Generally, you can expect your skin to look reddish for a few days after the procedure. This is because medical technicians create a series of micro-wounds to complete the procedure, which leads to this irritated look.
Technicians apply numbing agents during the microneedling procedure to help you avoid pain or discomfort. However, some patients report minor pain after they finish their treatment. Usually, the pain passes quickly. However, you may want to ask about pain relief options before you leave the treatment office.
The holes left behind by microneedling are very small. However, they still represent injuries in your skin and may lead to an infection if you do not care for them properly. You can reduce the odds of infection by:
- Keeping the area clean
- Staying out of pools or other bodies of water
- Avoiding the gym
Additionally, the professionals recommend that you do not use irritating lotions in the days immediately following your treatment to decrease the odds of an infection.
How Much Does Microneedling Treatment Cost?
The costs for microneedling can vary based on the number of treatments you want and the area where you want the treatment. Additionally, you can expect your appointment to cost more if you add PRP treatments with your microneedling.
PRP treatments increase the growth factors in the area where you receive a microneedling treatment, often enhancing the results.
