Microneedling At A Med Spa: What To Expect

Jun 28, 2021 | Anti-aging, Microneedling, Scars & Stretch Marks

Microneedling at a med spa is one of the hottest aesthetic treatments in Dallas and nationwide. It seems that everyone, from stay-at-home parents to A-list celebrities, is interested in this collagen-boosting therapy to gain a more youthful, healthy complexion. But in order to get the best results from this skin rejuvenation therapy, you need access to cutting-edge technology and unparalleled experience, which is why you should always choose microneedling at a medical spa in Dallas with proven results.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive treatment to promote skin rejuvenation.  Microneedling uses an automated disposable pen with multiple tiny, sterile needle tips that create micro-injuries in the skin. These micro-injuries trigger the derma, a deeper layer of your skin, to create healthy, new, collagen-rich tissue.  In addition, professional estheticians can use microneedling at a med spa to deposit beneficial serum, such as growth factor, hyaluronic acid, PRP, or vitamin C, deeper into the skin.

What Skin Conditions Does Microneedling Treat?

Microneedling may help address many skin-related complaints, including:

  • Fine lines and Wrinkles
  • Scarring
  • Large pores
  • Skin tone
  • Acne
  • Alopecia
  • Melasma
  • Skin pigmentation issues
  • Stretch marks
  • Rosacea
  • Loose skin, such as after weight loss or liposuction

Generally, professional microneedling is done on the face, arms, legs, back, hands and abdomen. When you receive your microneedling at a med spa by licensed estheticians, the procedure is safe enough that it can be used on almost all parts of your body.

What Can I Expect During Microneedling At A Med Spa?

Microneedling at a med spa is the best way to ensure the most effective skin rejuvenation treatment that is also a painless and relaxing procedure.

Prior to beginning the treatment, your licensed esthetician will apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area to numb the skin and ensure your comfort during the process. Many patients have described the treatment as feeling like light sandpaper moved across your skin, with a very minimal level of discomfort.

The typical microneedling treatment usually lasts between 15-30 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.

One of the best parts about microneedling is that there is so little downtime after the procedure. Within the first 24-48 hours after the treatment, you can expect your skin to be pinkish-red and feel like a slight sunburn. (We recommend avoiding applying makeup, sweating, going in saunas or hot tubs during these first 48 hours to prevent infection.) Starting at 48-72 hours post-treatment you may experience some flaking of your skin, which can last for up to 5 days.

The positive results of microneedling are visible immediately with the restoration of a healthy glow to your skin. But the real results that keep you looking younger begin to show after several days and weeks. Many patients tell us that the results of microneedling keep on improving up to 6 months! (No wonder microneedling has been compared to more intensive and costly laser treatments!)

How Often Will I Need A Microneedling Treatment?

For optimal results, you should expect a series of 3-6 microneedling sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart. However, depending on what skin issue you are having treated, your med spa team may recommend a series of  6-8 sessions spaced out over 6 weeks.
