Q & A

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a skin treatment that stimulates your skin to produce new collagen and elastin to resolve troubling aesthetic issues. Northstar Dermatology recommends microneedling to:

  • Tighten skin
  • Improve skin tone
  • Remove dark spots and age spots
  • Erase fine lines and wrinkles
  • Smooth away acne scars
  • Reduce the look of stretch marks
  • Improve the look of other scars
  • Stimulate scalp hair growth

Professional microneedling is a superior procedure to at-home derma rolling because your dermatologist uses sterile, single-use needle cartridges that pierce your skin vertically. At-home derma rollers aren’t sanitary, pierce your skin at an angle, and have limited needle lengths.

How Does Microneedling Work?

As with many skin rejuvenation techniques, including laser therapy, microneedling works by stimulating your skin’s own healing processes.

When your dermatologist passes the device over your face, neck, or body, the tiny, hair-thin needles create narrow wound columns that extend into your skin’s dermis layer. The narrow, controlled wounds send signals to your skin that initiate an inflammatory process that then triggers collagen remodeling.

Blood rushes to the microneedled skin to wash away debris and old strands of collagen and elastin. As your skin repairs the microwounds, it produces new and stronger collagen and elastin.

For about the next six months, your skin remodels itself with new collagen, building a stronger support base and more skin elasticity. After your treatments, your skin looks:

  • Younger
  • Thicker
  • Firmer
  • Finer grained
  • Smoother
  • Clearer
  • Scar and wrinkle-free

If you’re interested in re-growing recently lost scalp hair, microneedling can repair your damaged hair follicles. As the follicles rebuild themselves with new collagen and elastin, they produce new hairs again, too. You should see healthy new hair growth within a year after a series of treatments.

What Are The Advantages Of Microneedling?

Microneedling’s skin benefits are similar to those of laser therapy, but microneedling treatments are much less expensive. There’s also no downtime with microneedling. After your treatment, your skin may be slightly pink and tender for a day.

When your dermatologist at Northstar Dermatology microneedles your skin, they have a perfect opportunity to apply nourishing skin serums. The wound channels absorb the serums, allowing them to penetrate to a much deeper level than they would otherwise.

Get lustrous, healthy, and younger-looking skin by setting up your microneedling treatment today. Contact Northstar Dermatology by phone or book an appointment online.
