Microneedling Q&A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a treatment that improves the texture of your skin and resolves some pigment issues too. It works by reinvigorating the production of collagen and elastin, two fibrous proteins that give your skin its structure. 

Collagen is responsible for firmness, while elastin is responsible for keeping your skin tight, but they both diminish with age. 

During a microneedling procedure at CynSational Aesthetics, Ms. Sanchez uses a careful hand to create tiny needlepoints in your skin using a specialized handpiece. Your skin naturally heals these tiny injuries in the days following your treatment, but collagen and elastin continue to grow for weeks. 

Individual microneedling sessions take just 30 minutes, but Ms. Sanchez typically recommends a series of sessions for the best possible results. You can maintain your results in the long term with follow-up sessions. 

How does microneedling improve my skin?

You can get microneedling to improve an array of tone and texture issues, which often show up because of the aging process, sun damage, smoking, and other factors that aren’t so great for your skin. 

Microneedling can diminish or erase:

  • Wrinkles and lines
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Age or sun spots
  • Large pores
  • Scars
  • Stretch marks

If you’re comparing skin procedures, microneedling is one that won’t cause any skin pigment issues of its own. This is a risk with many laser procedures. 

What is the recovery period like after microneedling?

You might have some questions or concerns about the recovery after microneedling and how long it takes your skin to heal. While your skin remains sensitive after a microneedling session, you may or may not need any downtime. 

You should let your skin heal a little bit before you attempt to cover up any redness with cosmetics. You should also keep in mind that your skin is more sensitive to irritation than usual as it heals, so a generous sunscreen application is crucial. 

You can expect to see the results of your microneedling within a couple of weeks.
