Even if you’ve diligently applied sunscreen for years and followed a daily skincare regimen, aging and sun exposure take a toll on the skin’s texture and elasticity. Microneedling turns back the clock by triggering the production of collagen, an essential element of smooth and youthful-looking skin. Our specialists use the FDA-cleared Collagen P.I.N. automated microneedling device at our Toledo, Ohio, medical spa, customizing the treatment depth for each patient.

How Does Microneedling Work? 

Microneedling creates controlled wounds, triggering the body’s healing response to release a cascade of growth factors and boosting the production of collagen (the protein fibers that keep skin smooth and supple). The Collagen P.I.N. microneedling device quickly stamps the skin with a disposable tip cartridge, penetrating the skin at various depths with 36 very fine, short, sterilized needles. The effect is similar to fractional lasers without the downtime associated with laser treatments. 

What Are the Benefits of Microneedling? 

The infusion of collagen and other growth factors triggered by microneedling treatments nourishes the skin and produces long-term benefits. Microneedling helps: 

  • Smooth fine lines and wrinkles 
  • Reduce the appearance of acne scars 
  • Improve the skin’s texture 
  • Minimize stretch marks 
  • Boost radiance 

Any areas of the body including the face, neck, decolletage, and abdomen can be treated with microneedling to improve the skin’s texture or to reduce acne scarring.

What To Expect During Your Microneedling Treatment 

Your provider cleanses the skin at the outset of your microneedling treatment. Then they apply a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area, which takes about 45 minutes. Most of our patients say they experience minor discomfort during their treatments. The treatment involves the provider moving the device across the skin and stamping it so the micro-needles penetrate to a pre-set depth. Most appointments take 60 to 90 minutes and you’ll need little to no downtime. 

How Long Will My Microneedling Results Last? 

The duration of your microneedling results partly depends on the treatment area, penetration depth, and skin condition before the procedure. Patients often see the initial results about 3 to 4 weeks after treatment. We recommend a series of treatments initially to get the desired improvements and then periodic maintenance treatments each year. Some people prolong their results by nourishing their skin with facials or professional-grade skincare products between microneedling treatments.
