Microneedling Q & A

How does microneedling work?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment option that prompts your body’s natural healing abilities. Treatments use a handheld device covered in sterile treatment needles. As Dr. Soederbaum guides the device over the surface of your skin, the needles create thousands of tiny punctures. 

Your body perceives each of these punctures as a micro injury and rushes to begin the healing process. New collagen and elastin are formed, and circulation to the area intensifies. Inflammation is reduced while skin becomes plumped and renewed from within. 

A special numbing cream applied before treatment helps reduce discomfort. You might feel a slight pinching or stinging sensation during sessions, but there’s no significant pain. A degree of redness, swelling, and minimal bleeding is normal in the hours after sessions. 

You may see immediate improvements in the look and feel of your skin, but the full effects take weeks to develop. For most, a series of treatments spaced out over time yields the best results. 


What kinds of issues can microneedling improve?

Microneedling is an incredibly versatile treatment that can address a wide range of common skin conditions. Some of the skin issues that respond well to microneedling include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne
  • Acne scarring
  • Stretch marks
  • Loose or sagging skin
  • Enlarged pores
  • Areas of discoloration
  • Irregular or rough skin texture

Many people choose microneedling because it offers the chance to improve more than one issue with the same treatment. This makes it a wonderful way to save money while still meeting your treatment goals. 


How can microneedling help restore hair loss?

Microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can help boost new hair growth to create thicker, fuller hair. PRP is made from a small volume of your own blood. The sample is spun to separate the solid components from the liquids. 

The platelets are then reintroduced to the cleared plasma, creating a solution rich in special proteins called growth factors. When applied during microneedling, the treatment needles help PRP penetrate deeply where it goes to work sparking new hair growth. 

Microneedling also improves circulation, which aids in hair growth. Treatments reduce inflammation, which is a known factor in hair loss.
