What is Microneedling & How Does it Work?

Microneedling is a minimally-invasive skin treatment procedure that involves multiple tiny, sterile needles pierced into your skin, thus puncturing it and causing a controlled physical trauma. This, in turn, activates the body’s natural healing response, stimulating collagen production.

Collagen is an important protein that plays a major role in our skin health. As we grow older, the amount of collagen that our body produces decreases gradually, resulting in dull, loose, and wrinkled skin.

Because microneedling stimulates collagen and your body’s natural healing response, it can be used for treating other common skin conditions such as sun damage, acne scars, stretch marks, enlarged pores, and more. MaVie Med Spa provides some of the top microneedling St. George has to offer.

MaVie’s SkinPen Microneedling Treatment

At MaVie Med Spa, we use the SkinPen for our microneedling treatments. This device is the first microneedling device to be approved by the FDA. It is completely safe and effective for treating a wide range of skin problems.

What is the Procedure Like?

The procedure for microneedling is simple and takes about 30 minutes to complete, depending on the size of the area being treated. First, your medical provider will thoroughly clean the area to be treated. Then, a topical anesthetic is applied to the area to help reduce any pain or discomfort you may feel.

When performed in the appropriate fashion, the SkinPen causes tiny microinjuries on the surface of skin.

Since the needles are extremely small, the resulting needle punctures are not noticeable after your procedure.

After this, a special serum or calming treatment is applied on the area to prevent any post-procedure discomfort. Your provider at MaVie will take care to ensure you feel safe and confident while receiving your microneedling in St. George.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

You may need several treatments to achieve your desired results. For optimal results a series of 4-8 treatments can be expected; depending on desired outcomes. Conditions like acne scarring require more sessions. Each treatment is administered every 4 to 6 weeks.

It is important to note that you will not see visible results immediately because collagen production is a natural process that takes time. It will take a few months to see the full results of microneedling.

Is There Any Downtime Involved?

Since microneedling is minimally invasive, the procedure does not require any downtime except caution when it comes to sunlight. Specifics of sun restrictions will be described by your MaVie provider. Minimal downtime means that you don’t have to take time off to recover and you are free to return to your daily activities immediately after the procedure is completed.

Right after your procedure, your skin will be a little pink or red and you may experience mild swelling and tenderness. This is a natural response to the treatment and should not be a cause for alarm. These will go away on their own in about a day or two without any further complication. Again, it is important to remember you may experience a hypersensitivity to the sun post treatment and SPF 35 is recommended.
