Promote collagen and elastin production

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves using fine needles to create tiny punctures on the skin's surface. These micro-injuries stimulate the body's natural healing process, promoting collagen and elastin production. This treatment helps to improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles, and enhance overall skin tone. At Genesis Lifestyle Medicine, we use the SkinPen, a state-of-the-art device, to ensure safe and effective results for all skin types.

How does microneedling work?

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, involves using a device like SkinPen to create controlled micro-injuries on the skin's surface. These tiny punctures trigger the body's natural wound-healing process, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen is a protein that provides structural support to the skin, while elastin allows the skin to return to its original shape after stretching. The increased collagen and elastin production helps to improve skin texture, reduce scars and wrinkles, and enhance overall skin appearance.

How is microneedling administered?

During your microneedling session, a topical numbing cream will be applied to ensure your comfort. Using the SkinPen, our specialist will create tiny punctures in your skin. The procedure typically takes about 30-60 minutes, depending on the treatment area. The micro-injuries stimulate your skin’s natural healing process, promoting collagen and elastin production.

After the procedure, you may experience mild redness and swelling, similar to a sunburn, which usually subsides within a few days. It’s important to follow post-treatment care instructions, which may include avoiding direct sunlight and using gentle skincare products. Over the next few weeks, you’ll notice gradual improvements in your skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance, revealing a more youthful and rejuvenated look.

How many sessions will I need?

Typically, you will need 3-6 microneedling sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart to achieve optimal results. The effects of microneedling can last several months, depending on your skin condition and care routine. Regular maintenance treatments are recommended to sustain the benefits and keep your skin looking rejuvenated.

Microneedling FAQs

Is microneedling painful?

Microneedling is generally well-tolerated. A topical numbing cream is applied before the procedure to minimize discomfort. You might feel a slight tingling or pricking sensation, but it is typically not painful.

How long does a microneedling session take?

A typical microneedling session lasts between 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the treatment area. This includes time for numbing and the procedure itself.

When will I see the results?

You may notice initial improvements within a few days as the redness subsides, but optimal results appear after several weeks as collagen production increases and skin texture improves.

Is microneedling safe for all skin types?

Microneedling is suitable for most skin types and tones. However, it’s important to consult with a specialist to ensure it’s the right treatment for your specific skin concerns and condition.
