Microneedling Specialist Q&A
As we age the skin loses its youthful appearance and tightness. Microneedling reverses this process by stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen. Microneedling is available at Renouveau MedSpa. For more information schedule a consultation or call today. You can also visit our medspa at 3755 Sawtelle Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90066.

Using microneedling, skin concerns can be treated by stimulating collagen production minimally invasively. By using miniature, sterilized needles, collagen induction therapy creates micro-punctures in the skin.
As a result of its growing list of benefits, microneedling has gained popularity. There is very little discomfort and very little downtime with this treatment, and it can be tailored to suit each patient’s needs.
The cost of microneedling is considerably less than that of laser therapy, and it may work better for some people. The use of lasers causes your skin’s pigmentation to change as a result of the use of heat.
Due to safety concerns associated with certain types of laser treatments on the color of the skin, people with darker skin tones may prefer microneedling to laser therapy.
The face is the most common area for microneedling. Microneedling can also be used to treat stretch marks on other parts of the body in addition to facial concerns. When combined with fillers, microneedling can be effective for stretch marks on the thighs and abdomen. The procedure may also be used to treat scars on other parts of the body.
An instrument with tiny, sterilized needles is used by the doctor to make small pricks under the skin. There will probably be no noticeable pinpricks after the procedure since the pinpricks are so small. To ensure your newly rejuvenated skin is even, the doctor typically moves the tool evenly across it. A topical anesthetic will be applied to the treatment area approximately 45 minutes to an hour before the procedure.
Approximately 30 minutes later, microneedling will begin. The skin will be numbed during this process. A growth serum or calming treatment may then be applied by the doctor to conclude your session. It takes approximately 2 hours to perform one microneedling session.
Microneedling can be a safe and effective means of improving the appearance of the skin. As a result, wrinkles may be reduced, scars may be reduced, and loose, aging skin may be tightened or rejuvenated. The treatment can leave the patient’s appearance revitalized and combat the unwanted signs of aging.
A microneedling treatment stimulates the production of collagen in the skin. As a result of the pinpricks, the skin produces collagen-rich tissue in response to the injury.
There is a greater degree of evenness in tone and texture in this new skin tissue. A variety of factors contribute to the loss of collagen in the skin, including aging and injury. Firmer skin is likely to result from the production of new collagen, which encourages the skin to make new tissue.
Radiofrequency, topical serums, and platelet-rich plasma may also be used with microneedling. It can be helpful to consult a dermatologist about additional treatment options and their additional effectiveness.
You can generally expect the effects of microneedling to last for about three to five months. A number of factors affect the longevity of the results, including how long new collagen lasts in your skin and the severity of your skin concerns. For those with severe skin concerns who need to build a lot of collagen, the results may last only a few months, while those with mild concerns may see longer results.
This treatment produces collagen of varying quality and durability depending on several factors, including your age, your stress level, and the way you maintain your skin. A person with younger skin can build new collagen more easily and also hold on to it longer than someone with mature skin. Smoking, exposure to sunlight unprotected, and a stressful lifestyle can break down collagen more quickly. Microneedling is available at Renouveau MedSpa.
