What Does Microneedling Actually Do?

Narra Dermatology and Aesthetics and Dr. Suseela Narra have helped many people improve their appearance and manage skin-related problems. However, large numbers of patients have asked about microneedling in Issaquah, WA and seem confused about how it works. Understanding this treatment method can help you decide if it is suitable for your skin problems and ensure that you choose the best care option.

How Does This Process Work?

Dermatologists will use a microneedle roller to insert very fine and short needles into your skin. Don't worry: this process doesn't hurt or cause serious disfigurement because they're very small. However, they do slightly damage the skin in the process, which is a good thing in this situation! That's because it causes your body to react and triggers healing processes throughout the skin.

For example, microneedling in Issaquah, WA, can cause your skin to produce more collagen and elastin to repair itself. These chemicals help improve skin elasticity and appearance and provide many other benefits. The whole process takes around 30 minutes, depending on your treatment area.

After you're done, you may receive some minor wound care to stop bleeding but can walk out and get back to your life right away, without any downtime or serious side effects.

What Benefits Does This Provide?

Some people may think that this process couldn't possibly provide many benefits or that they are too good to be true. However, it is based on real medical research and has been proven to provide many skin-repair benefits. It has been approved by the FDA for many different care options. People may receive this care to:

  • Improve wrinkle appearance by minimizing their spread across the face
  • Remove or reduce scarring on the face and other parts of the body
  • Manage skin conditions, like acne, rosacea, and alopecia
  • Reduce stretch marks throughout various parts of the body
  • Help with skin pigmentation and create a more consistent tone
  • Tighten loose skin after weight loss or liposuction

Some people may use this treatment to improve topical care methods or add various vitamins to the skin. For example, microneedle rollers may help add extra vitamin C to your skin and improve your overall appearance. Repeated treatments may be necessary to achieve long-lasting results.
