Microneedling Q & A

Microneedling with MDPen

Learn how this procedure creates the natural production of collagen and elastin in your skin.

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a noninvasive, non-surgical aesthetic treatment that uses tiny needles to create controlled injury in your skin and trigger collagen and elastin production as part of your body’s natural healing process. Microneedling can produce dramatic improvements in your skin without surgery or downtime.

What are the benefits of microneedling?

Microneedling is often applied to your face, neck, hands, décolleté, abdomen, arms, legs, or other areas of your body with skin imperfections. The technique can produce the following aesthetic benefits:

  • Diminished skin pigmentation
  • Improved skin thickness
  • Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enhanced collagen and elastin production
  • Improved skin texture
  • Refreshed skin
  • Reduced acne scars
  • Fewer stretch marks

Microneedling is an excellent alternative to plastic surgery and other invasive aesthetic procedures when you want to improve your skin’s appearance and reduce unwelcome signs of aging.

What is PRP?

PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is the part of your blood that contains a more concentrated source of platelets, which enhances your body’s natural healing abilities. 

Your aesthetic specialist uses PRP with microneedling to optimize anti-aging results. To isolate PRP, they take a sample of your blood, spin it in a centrifuge, and apply it to your skin.

What should I expect during microneedling?

To determine if you’re a good candidate for microneedling, your Selah MediSpa specialist reviews your medical history and examines your skin. They use lidocaine gel to numb your skin prior to the procedure to minimize discomfort.

During treatment, you sit in a comfortable chair while your practitioner uses a handheld microneedling device to create tiny microtears in your skin. 

They use PRP with microneedling so it can seep deep within skin layers to further enhance collagen and elastin production. The length of time your procedure takes depends on the size of the treatment area.

What happens after the procedure?

After microneedling sessions, expect to experience some swelling and redness for up to five days. You may also notice some tightness, burning, and mild flaking. 

There’s no downtime, however, so you can resume your everyday routine right away and wear mineral makeup the following day.

A noticeable improvement in your skin’s texture and overall appearance occurs within several weeks. Your provider might recommend a series of 3-6 treatments to achieve the most desirable outcome, and yearly maintenance sessions after that.
