Microneedling Q& A
What is microneedling?
Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is a solution for many common skin imperfections. At Revive Medical Aesthetics, the team often recommends microneedling for patients who have uneven skin tones, rough textures, or marks and blemishes.
The team uses the Eclipse MicroPen® for all microneedling procedures. The MicroPen makes tiny, controlled injuries across your skin with a set of hair-thin needles. The device is automated and allows for more evenly spaced punctures than derma rollers and other needling devices.
Your provider at Revive Medical Aesthetics applies a numbing cream to your skin before gliding the device across your skin’s surface. The process takes 15-30 minutes in total.
What are the results of microneedling?
Each tiny channel that the needles make in your skin during microneedling elicits a healing response within your skin. New collagen fibers begin to form, making your skin firmer and smoother. You can talk to your provider at Revive Medical Aesthetics about reducing or correcting the following skin features with microneedling.
- Acne scars
- Trauma scars
- Surgical scars
- Chickenpox scars
- Age spots
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Large pores
Most microneedling patients choose to get the treatment on the face where these features are often concentrated, but you can target nearly any part of your body that you choose. For example, many patients choose to target the parts of their body that have stretch marks. Let the team at Revive Medical Aesthetics know if you want to improve the skin on your neck, chest, hands, legs, arms, or abdomen.
How long does it take to see the results after microneedling?
After microneedling with MicroPen, your skin improvements develop over time as new collagen grows. You notice immediately that your skin takes on a renewed glow, and it can continue to improve for up to six months.
If you love the way your skin looks after a microneedling treatment and want to experience it again, Revive Medical Aesthetics offers follow-up treatments when your skin starts to become dull and blemished again or as a preventive measure against the signs of aging.
Will I need recovery time after a microneedling treatment?
You won’t need to rearrange your whole routine for microneedling since there is no required recovery time. You can return to work right after you leave your appointment. It’s worth noting that your skin might be a bit red, but the team at Revive Medical Aesthetics offers Eclipse Dermal Recovery System™ products to help soothe and protect it.
