Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is a skincare procedure that uses the body’s natural response to controlled dermal injury. An automated pen is used to create thousands of microperforations in the upper dermis layer. This therapy triggers a natural skin repair mechanism to create new collagen and elastin, significantly improving the texture and tone of skin.

This skin rejuvenation technique encourages your skin to produce collagen, a vital protein that decreases as we age. When the tiny needles prick your skin, you experience a slight injury. Your skin will respond by producing new collagen-rich tissue, encouraging a firmer texture and even skin tone. After a few treatments, your new skin will look brighter and better than before.

What Conditions Does Microneedling Treat?

Microneedling’s anti-aging benefits are particularly effective, and this technique is used in certain procedures such as sunspot removal. Microneedling is used to treat various skin conditions and complaints, including acne scarring, large pores, rosacea, and wrinkles. In addition, professionals can use microneedling to deposit medication, such as topical tretinoin or vitamin C, deeper into the skin.

What Does the Research Say About Microneedling?

Recent research into microneedling has confirmed that it’s effective at reducing the visibility of pores, wrinkles, and scars.

A study published in the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery in 2009 found a significant reduction in patients’ atrophic acne scars following multiple sessions of microneedling. Another study published in the journal Clinical, Cosmetic, and Investigational Dermatology in 2017 proved microneedling was an effective, well-tolerated treatment for pigmentation disorders like melasma.

Additionally, a 2018 study published in the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology demonstrated that microneedling treatments improved skin texture and decreased pore size.

Microneedling Benefits:

Microneedling can help to improve a range of skin conditions:

  • Enhances elasticity and texture of skin
  • Scar treatment, including acne scars
  • Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reversal of hyperpigmentation and sunspots
  • Reduced appearance of pores and improves overall texture of the skin
  • Stretch mark revision
  • Reduces appearance of surgical scars
  • Improved effectiveness of topical skincare products
  • Treats melasma

What Are the Benefits Over Laser Treatments?

When comparing microneedling to laser treatments, there are a few benefits to opting for the former.

First off, many find microneedling to be a more convenient option because it requires less downtime. In addition, microneedling stimulates the body’s natural healing process, resulting in the production of collagen and elastin and smoother, firmer, younger-looking skin.

Furthermore, microneedling can be combined with a number of other skin treatments.

The Microneedling Treatment

During the procedure, your technician will use a small, pen-like tool with fine needles to make tiny pricks under your skin. Your technician will gently and evenly move the microneedle over the surface of your skin, ensuring the even production of rejuvenated skin. Once the procedure is finished, your technician may apply a serum to calm your skin.

When you book your microneedling appointment at Bella Medspa, our staff will explain the procedure to you and answer any questions you may have about the process. About one hour before your first treatment, your technician will begin the microneedling procedure by applying a topical anesthetic to the area being treated. This will help reduce feelings of discomfort.

How Does Microneedling Work?

Microneedling therapy is performed with a pen-like instrument with a set of precisely spaced sterile needles that oscillate over 100 times a second to produce thousands of micro-injuries at a controlled depth in the dermis. The injured dermis sends signals to fiberblasts stimulating them to align, repair, and increase collagen production. The skin plumps and thickens. When this treatment is repeated every four weeks in a series of 3 – 6 treatments, skin tone and texture, wrinkles, scars, and hyperpigmentation are remarkably improved.

Does Microneedling Hurt?

Since microneedling involves tiny needles poking into the skin, it can be painful without a topical anesthetic. With this anesthetic, however, you will experience facial numbing and the pain you experience during the procedure is minimal.

At Bella Medspa, we are committed to providing a safe, comfortable experience. Our microneedling experts will always apply topical anesthetic to your skin’s surface prior to the procedure.

You may also experience minor irritation and redness immediately after your appointment, which can cause some discomfort. This is a normal response from your skin to the microneedling wounds. These symptoms should disappear within 24 hours after your appointment.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

To reap the full benefits of microneedling, Bella Medspa recommends scheduling multiple treatments. Most patients require 3 to 6 consecutive treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart for best results.

Our Microneedling Pen

The microneedling devices used by Bella Medspa are very safe, professional-grade tools. Each of our microneedling pens have automated vibrating functions that prevent unnecessary epidermal damage, protecting the quality of your skin. The microneedle’s controlled vibrations also increase the absorption of skincare products, increasing the effectiveness of treatment in the process.

Is microneedling safe?

Research shows that microneedling is a very safe and effective procedure when professional equipment is used—but home microneedling is a completely different story. Dermarolling at home produces the same micro-injuries as microneedling, but you can increase your risk of infection due to unsanitary conditions.

At Bella Medspa, we always sterilize our microneedles and facilities to keep our patients safe from infection and dangerous side effects. Although you can purchase a consumer dermaroller, you should not attempt skin needling at home. Always choose professional microneedling over DIY procedures.

Microneedling is safe for all skin types, including thin and sensitive skin. However, there are certain people who should not receive this treatment.

    You may not be an ideal microneedling candidate if:
  • You are pregnant.
  • You have certain skin diseases, such as eczema or psoriasis.
  • You have a history of scars on your skin.
  • You currently have open wounds on your face.
  • You underwent radiation therapy recently.

Side Effects of Microneedling

Like all cosmetic procedures, microneedling may lead to side effects. The most common side effects include redness and skin irritation, which will go away on their own.

It is possible to experience more serious symptoms that require medical attention. Although these microneedling side effects are rare, you should reach out to us immediately if you notice:

  • Bruising
  • Signs of infection

Microneedling Aftercare

Downtime with microneedling is very lifestyle friendly, with minimal downtime.

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure, so aftercare is simple and easy. Recovery time is minimal and most people do not need to take any downtime to heal from their treatment. Skin irritation and redness are common during the first few days after the procedure. However, it is important to take good care of your skin during the healing process.

Your skin will be more sensitive to the sun after microneedling, so it is important to wear sunscreen every day—especially for the first two weeks after treatment. Avoid spending too much time in the sun during the first week of your procedure to avoid sun damage.

Because your microneedling wounds need time to heal, do not apply makeup during the first 24 hours after the procedure. You should especially avoid applying makeup with used makeup brushes, which can contain bacteria that can lead to infection.

To protect yourself from infection and promote the healthiest skin possible, you should also avoid situations where you might sweat heavily. Avoid intense gym workouts, saunas, swimming pools, and other activities for at least 48 hours after the procedure.

Microneedling Cost

Microneedling procedure costs can vary. A single session can cost between $100 to $700 per person. The Bella Medspa team will inform you of the cost of your treatment before your first procedure.

If you are unsure whether you can afford microneedling, Bella Medspa offers free consultations and affordable healthcare financing with CareCredit. Contact us today to schedule an appointment and discuss your payment options.

Can Microneedling Be Combined with Other Treatments?

Microneedling can indeed be used in conjunction with other treatments. Ones like vitamin-infused serums, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), and chemical peels are frequently combined with microneedling. Since serums and other topical products can penetrate deeper into the microchannels created by microneedling, these combinations increase the efficacy of microneedling.

Before combining any treatments, you should speak with a knowledgeable provider like Bella Medspa, as the suitability of such combinations can vary depending on your unique skin type and treatment objectives.

Skincare Health and Wellness

Microneedling can promote the production of collagen—but this treatment alone isn’t enough to give bright, beautiful skin instantly. It is important to maintain a gentle and effective skincare routine, eat a healthy diet, and drink plenty of water to promote beautiful skin.

Hyaluronic acid serum is recommended for use after microneedling; this product hydrates the skin and may stimulate collagen production. After your treatment, ask your Bella Medspa technician about hyaluronic acid and which serums they would recommend using.

Navigating skincare products after microneedling can be slightly challenging. To avoid damage to your skin, follow these tips.

  • Keep your skincare routine to a minimum after the procedure. Use gentle cleansers and toners to treat your skin.
  • Avoid harsh exfoliating chemicals and scented products for the first few days after your procedure.
  • Avoid products containing retinol or vitamin C for at least 48 hours after microneedling. Gradually introduce these products back into your regimen once this time has passed.
  • A dermatologist may prescribe certain products, such as peptide creams or antibiotic lotions, to use after your treatment. Always follow their advice and use these products as directed.

If you are unsure whether a skincare product is right for you, ask your Bella Medspa technician. They can advise you on whether any cleansers, scrubs, or toners you plan to use after your procedure could harm your skin or microneedling’s effectiveness.

Does Microneedling Work?

Clinical research supporting microneedling

A number of well-designed clinical studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of microneedling.

  • A systematic review published in 2018 concluded that microneedling is both safe and effective for improving skin health (1). The researchers stated that microneedling can help to rejuvenate the skin and improve the state of scars and wrinkles.
  • A press release published by the American Academy of Dermatology stated that microneedling can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars and stretch marks (2).
  • One study found that microneedling in combination with ascorbic acid and calcium hydroxylapatite was an effective treatment for stretch marks on the thighs and abdominal areas (3).
