Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that can address a range of cosmetic issues affecting the health and appearance of your skin.

The procedure uses a roller device that contains a series of thin needles. As the roller moves across your skin, the tiny needles create microwounds on the surface of your skin. The wounds stimulate your natural healing response, so your body produces more proteins (collagen and elastin) that keep the skin healthy.

Next Direct Primary Care offers microneedling services for adults in-office. The experienced aesthetics team completes a comprehensive skin evaluation to identify the issues you want to treat and determine if microneedling can help.

When should I consider microneedling?

The microneedling services at Next Direct Primary Care can address skin conditions like:

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Acne scars
  • Discoloration
  • Enlarged pores
  • Uneven skin tone

Treatment can also tighten thin, crepey skin that develops with age when your body doesn’t produce enough collagen and elastin.

Microneedling is effective at treating the delicate skin on your face and can also firm skin on your neck, legs, or other areas of damaged or wrinkled skin.

What happens during a microneedling session?

During your microneedling session at Next Direct Primary Care, the providers can apply a numbing cream to your skin to minimize discomfort. They use a handheld roller on your skin to create the microwounds in the targeted treatment area.

Depending on the condition you want to treat, your specialist can adjust the depth of the needles. For instance, if you’re treating acne scars, the needles may need to penetrate deeper layers of your skin than if you’re treating surface discoloration.

Deeper treatments may cause bleeding and mild discomfort. Your microneedling session can last anywhere from 15 minutes to several hours, based on the size and location of the treatment area.

In the days after microneedling, your skin’s tightness should improve. It can take several weeks to see the full benefit of your treatment. The aesthetic team might recommend additional microneedling sessions scheduled several weeks apart to enhance your skin’s health and restore its youthful appearance.
