Microneedling is a non-surgical technique that creates tiny channels in the dermal layer of the skin, initiating the body’s natural healing process to induce collagen and elastin. By creating microscopic injuries to the surface of the skin, the body is encouraged to grow fresh, unblemished skin. As one of the most popular skin beauty treatments, microneedling helps minimize fine lines and wrinkles, diminishes hyperpigmentation in the skin, improves signs of acne scars, and more.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling uses a powerful handpiece to create tiny channels into the dermis layer of the skin. The skin is prepped with lidocaine gel to provide numbness to the skin and uses a mechanical device without the application of heat and light.
What Can Microneedling Be Used To Treat?
Microneedling can be used to treat acne/rosacea, scar revision, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles. The needle maneuvers to stimulate the dermis resulting in the break up of scar tissue, hyperpigmentation, and correcting skin texture. Optimal results are achieved within 3-6 sessions one month apart per treatment.
While prominently used for removing wrinkles and scars from the face, anywhere where the skin is weak or has stretch marks, microneedling can be used. Microneedling can be done to the entire face, neck, arms, legs, and abdomen, among other areas of the body. Beyond removing scar tissue and skin flaws, microneedling can also help stimulate collagen for the hair follicles to encourage hair growth. Issues such as male pattern baldness, traction alopecia, and telogen effluviumcan be treated by microneedling to help regrow hair follicles and stimulate the scalp for healthier hair.
Can Microneedling Be Combined With Other Treatments?
Microneedling can be combined with our facial treatments available at Youthology Medical to produce maximum results. Some treatment options that we can offer include:
- Botox Facials: Our botox facial combines the benefits of Botox and microneedling, infusing the benefits of this neurotoxin, microneedling, and hyaluronic acid serum to tighten skin pores, decrease oil production, and renew skin texture. Our MD Pen device allows us to create microscopic channels, creating better absorption for hyaluronic serums and botox facials. It’s important to remember that our Botox facials are not Botox injections.
- Liquid Gold Facial: Our liquid gold facial incorporates PRP treatment with microneedling to improve growth factors affecting the healing process and help assist with collagen production. By adding platelet-rich plasma to your microneedling treatment, the results help decrease swelling and redness after microneedling and boost the natural healing effects of your body, achieving faster results.
Microneedling sessions require rest for up to five days, and mild symptoms after treatment include light burning, tightness, and mild skin flaking. However, noticeable differences in skin texture will occur within a couple of weeks. In some cases, retreatments may be necessary to see long-term results. For more information, our provider will discuss whether microneedling is right for you.
Collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling, is nearly painless and has been shown to have incredible effect on the health and beauty of your skin. The concept is simple, by inflicting thousands of imperceptible injuries to the top layer of skin, the body is encouraged to produce additional collagen and regenerate the surface layer with fresh, unblemished skin. It’s no surprise it’s becoming one of the most popular beauty treatments around.
how does It Work?
Microneedling is essentially performing the same process accomplished by using lasers, but does so without the application of heat or light. The process is instead mechanical, and produces some amazing anti-aging effects by encouraging the body to rejuvenate itself. Additionally it has a lower downtime and doesn’t lead to the same photo-sensitivity as can be experienced with the laser treatments.
Dont forget to add Dermaplaning to a Microneedling Session to increase absorption of serum or PRP!

Add PRP to a Microneedling treatment. By adding PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), also known as the Vampire Facial, we are taking your own blood and spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the plasma and platelets from the blood. The resulting serum contains high concentrated amounts of natural growth factors to help with healing and collagen production, and decrease the redness and swelling seen after microneedling, boosting the effects. By injecting directly into the area desired or microneedling into the skin we can help achieve your results faster.
