What is Microneedling?
Are you ready to turn back the clock with microneedling? A popular cosmetic treatment, microneedling rejuvenates the skin and increases collagen production to diminish the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, sun spots, and more.
At The Dermatology & Skin Surgery Center near Wilmington, NC, our board-certified dermatologists are expertly trained in administering microneedling to help patients achieve the beautiful, glowing skin they deserve. Keep reading to learn more about microneedling.
Microneedling is a minimally-invasive treatment that utilizes a small pen-like device containing micro-fine needles to gently pierce the skin and stimulate collagen production.
At The Dermatology & Skin Surgery Center, we exclusively use the Collagen P.I.N., which is a state-of-the-art microneedling pen that requires no downtime and delivers exceptional results.
The microneedling treatment is based on the concept of regenerative healing. When these tiny needles puncture the topmost layer of skin, the body is tricked into thinking it’s injured, thus accelerating the natural production of collagen and elastin. Over time, as the body encourages this natural healing process, the skin becomes smoother, firmer, and younger-looking.
To help you get a better understanding of what microneedling is and the benefits of this cosmetic treatment, here are our expert answers to common questions:
The price of a microneedling session varies widely depending on the office, a patient’s goal, and the number of sessions needed to achieve that goal.
However, it’s important to keep a couple of things in mind when researching the cost of microneedling – a physician’s experience and whether or not a board-certified dermatologist is administering the treatment. Remember, cheaper is not always better!
As with many other cosmetic treatments, microneedling delivers the best results when done in a series of treatments spread out within a certain amount of weeks. Your doctor will determine the best course of treatment based on your specific goals.
It’s crucial to treat the skin with kindness after a microneedling session, as the skin needs time to heal. We recommend applying liberal amounts of moisturizers, formulas with hyaluronic acid, and serums to hydrate the skin and reduce any redness.
