Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that stimulates your body’s natural collagen production. Collagen is a major protein found in your tissue and a vital skin-strengthening compound.

The microneedling procedure involves a small, handheld device affixed with dozens of tiny needles. The technician glides the device across your skin to create tiny puncture wounds in your dermis. The punctures are so small that they’re invisible to your naked eye.

Your body perceives these microchannels as wounds and rushes in healing compounds, including the production of new collagen.

As you age and expose yourself to the sun and elements, collagen naturally depletes. You benefit from the boost microneedling provides to increase your collagen production.

What is microneedling with PRP?

Microneedling with PRP is very similar to traditional microneedling. The only difference is that Point Loma Cosmetics gently applies a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) solution to your skin after making a number of puncture wounds.

PRP contains a high concentration of platelets. These growth factors speed up your body’s natural healing process, transforming the condition of your skin. What’s more, PRP comes from your own blood, so there’s no risk of side-effects like an infection.

How soon will I see results from microneedling?

Your skin may look red and flushed immediately after microneedling treatment at Point Loma Cosmetics. It will almost look like you’ve had a mild sunburn. 

Your skin may also feel tight and sensitive. These side effects subside within a few hours and you should be fully healed within 24 hours.

In the first few days and weeks following your microneedling procedure, your skin will take on a beautiful glow. The full results of microneedling become most apparent 6-8 weeks following the procedure. Your body needs this time to rebuild your skin.

What skin issues can microneedling address?

Microneedling addresses numerous skin complaints, including:

  • Lax skin
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars and surgical scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Uneven texture

Microneedling procedures are most often performed on the face but can be used on other areas of the body. Discuss your skin concerns with your provider, and they can offer the best solutions for you.

How many microneedling treatments will I need?

You may be satisfied with the results you get after just one treatment, but usually, a series of treatments gives you the best outcome. Point Loma Cosmetics puts together a customized recommendation, with each treatment scheduled a month or so apart.
