Microneedling - The Facts About this Buzzworthy Skin Procedure

Posted by Love Medical Spa on Mar 30 2022, 08:35 AM

Do you wish to have flawless skin, but open pores, acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles make the skin look tired and flawed? At Love Medical Spa, we offer Microneedling treatment that addresses all these concerns effectively and safely. 


Microneedling is one of the advanced non-surgical breakthrough skin treatments that effectively reduce acne scars, large open pores, wrinkles, and fine lines. The procedure uses tiny, sterile, microscopic needles to boost collagen and elastin production, the compounds responsible for youthful-looking skin. Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), thus results in smoother and healthier skin without any incisions, anesthesia, or downtime.

Microneedling Benefits

Microneedling may help with issues like:

  • Acne
  • Hair loss (alopecia)
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Large open pores
  • Reduced skin elasticity
  • Scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Sun damage
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

How Does Microneedling Procedure Work?

The microneedling procedure starts with numbing the patient's face using a numbing cream. By using the Dermapen or Dermarolling, which has very tiny surgical-grade needles, controlled, microscopic wounds are made in the epidermis. These wounds initiate the body's healing process by boosting collagen and elastin production to heal these tiny injuries. 

By adjusting the depths of needle penetration, our practitioner can treat the tender under-eye skin more superficially and the body skin more deeply. Thus, the microneedling procedure is able to address acne scars, fine lines, pore size, and stretch marks without any downtime.

The microneedling process usually needs 10-20 minutes, depending on the area to be treated. It may need up to 4-6 treatments to notice visible differences. 

What is the Effectiveness of the Microneedling Procedure?

  • The microneedling procedure is effective in treating scarring on the face due to acne, pimples, wounds, or aging and results in firmer and brighter skin after the treatment.
  • By stimulating collagen production, the treatment can make skin appear younger.
  • Microneedling is more effective than at-home rollers.
  • Microneedling is efficient in considerably reducing the appearance of large open pores. 

Microneedling - Aftercare 

Since microneedling is not an invasive procedure, most people require very little to no downtime. However, you may experience some minor skin irritation and redness immediately after the procedure for a few days after the procedure. However, call your doctor in case of the following side effects:

  • bleeding
  • bruising
  • infection
  • peeling

To protect your skin and reduce inflammation and redness, follow these steps:

  • Use a chemical-free sunscreen with an SPF 50
  • Do not use any face wash or cleanser for 40 hours after the treatment.
  • Do not rub or exfoliate your face for a week after the procedure.
  • Do not use any acids and retinol on the face for a week.
