Micro-Needling Q & A

What is micro-needling?

Micro-needling is a common, effective procedure that uses fine needles to create small puncture wounds in the top layer of your skin. Although this may sound like it would be uncomfortable, the procedure is virtually painless.

How does micro-needling work?

When any part of your body is injured, it immediately begins healing itself by sending blood to the area and creating new cells. Micro-needling takes advantage of this natural process by creating many small injuries in the skin. These tiny injuries stimulate the body to begin the healing process, producing more collagen and elastin, and reversing many of the signs of aging.

What happens during the procedure?

During the micro-needling procedure, the doctor uses a fine needle to puncture the skin in hundreds of different places all over the face. Because the needle is so small and the punctures aren’t deep, you will feel little to no pain during micro-needling.

How many treatments are necessary?

In many cases, people need more than one micro-needling treatment to get the results they want. South Texas Women’s Health & Medical Spa can help you decide how many treatments you need before you get started.

What results should patients expect?

You may begin noticing an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles after only a few sessions. Micro-needling also can reduce the appearance of acne scars, sun damage, discoloration, and hyperpigmentation. In addition, because micro-needling encourages the skin to make more collagen, it can give you tighter, more youthful skin with a more natural hue.

The benefits of micro-needling continue even after the procedure is over. The tiny punctures in your skin improve its ability to absorb other substances, including any creams you may be using at home. This means that these creams are able to penetrate the skin more effectively and give you better results.

Does micro-needling cause larger pores?

Although it may seem like micro-needling would cause your pores to grow larger, it doesn’t actually cause this problem. In fact, one of the primary benefits of micro-needling is that it stimulates the production of collagen near the pores, which makes them appear smaller.
