What is Microneedling?

Microneedling uses a medical device that slides across the skin, penetrating the upper layers and creating microscopic holes. This process creates a wound response in the body and causes the skin to create new collagen and elastin fibers. This treatment is ideal for any skin type and can be repeated every month until desired results are achieved.

What are the benefits of Microneedling?

  • Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduces the appearance of pores
  • Increased effectiveness and penetration of active ingredients in topical products
  • Improves the appearance of stretch marks and scars
  • It can be used on all areas of the scalp, face, and body

This treatment is ideal for any skin type and can be repeated every month until desired results are achieved. Expect mild to moderate redness that can last for 24-48 hours.

How is Microneedling performed?

At Audubon Dermatology we use the only FDA approved Microneedling device on the the market. The SkinPen slides across the skin, penetrating the upper layers and creating microscopic holes. A topical numbing agent is applied to the skin thirty minutes before treatment.

What is recovery like after Microneedling?

Recovery after a Microneedling treatment is minimal. However, you can expect mild to moderate redness and possibly bruising that can last for 24-72 hours after treatment. We recommend stopping any blood thinners not prescribed by a physician for 1-2 weeks before a Microneedling treatment to prevent the risk of bruising. Examples of these are Aspirin, NSAIDS like Advil (Ibuprofen) or Aleve (Naproxen Sodium), Vitamin E, Fish Oil, Ginkgo, Green Tea, Garlic, Ginseng, St John’s Wort, and alcoholic beverages.
