What is Microneedling?

If you are looking to enhance the appearance and complexion of your skin, microneedling can help you with issues such as acne scars, brown spots, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, pigmentation, pore size, and the texture and quality of your skin.

Microneedling is a non-invasive procedure that employs fine needles to puncture your skin and uses your body’s own healing response to create new collagen and elastin in your skin. Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling uses your body’s own collagen production to rejuvenate your skin for firmer and smoother skin and provide a more youthful appearance.

Although it is most commonly applied to the face, microneedling can be effective in other areas of your body too. For example, it can decrease the appearance of stretch marks and scars, especially on the legs. 

Many people are nervous about possible pain from a cosmetic procedure but one of the great things about microneedling is that the pain is usually minimal with the use of very thin needles. This procedure is also low-risk because the infliction of your skin is minimal. When it comes to getting microneedling Vancouver staff at The Workman Center for Plastic Surgery will work with you to get the results you need.

Procedure of Microneedling

Microneedling is a quick procedure that can be performed in about half an hour. A topical numbing cream helps to numb and clean your skin.

Using hyaluronic acid or your platelet-rich plasma, a small and sterile needle that looks like a pen is used to puncture your skin on the surface level and moved evenly across your skin. Most patients don’t feel any pain from the pinpricks with the help of the topical lidocaine. The end result is that your skin will produce new collagen and elastin and help make your skin look and feel healthier than before.

Who can get microneedling?

Can microneedling work as an anti-aging treatment?

Microneedling uses precise, thin needles that glide across your skin to deliver an anti-aging healing serum underneath your skin. By triggering the production of new collagen, microneedling enhances texture and helps to firm up aging skin.

Is microneedling painful?

There may be minimal pain while undergoing microneedling treatment. But most Vancouver microneedling patients report no pain, especially with the use of numbing cream. And you can expect not to have any downtime after your procedure.

What are the results of microneedling?

Results can be seen within a couple of days following your procedure since your skin works quickly in creating collagen and new tissue. The final results will provide you with a softened appearance.

How is the recovery from microneedling?

It is normal to feel some sensitivity for a few days after your procedure. But the inflammatory effect on your skin is usually short and fades within a day or two and change from redness to pinkness. You can expect to start peeling a few days after your microneedling in Vancouver. 

You should avoid scratching at the treated skin and, if necessary, use moisturizers. You can camouflage the redness or pinkness with makeup after a few days. Other key things to keep in mind are staying away from strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours due to open pores and avoid sun exposure for a minimum of three days, but preferably a week.
