What is Microneedling?

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a cutting-edge skin rejuvenation treatment. When you arrive for microneedling in Indianapolis, our service provider uses a specialized microneedling pen to create thousands of micro-channels on the skin’s surface, which activates the body’s innate healing processes, including skin cell regeneration and collagen production. Over time, your body produces new collagen fibers to fill acne scars, reverse the signs of aging, and make your skin look smoother, firmer, and more youthful.

Your Microneedling Journey

Before Microneedling…

Your Microneedling treatment starts with an evaluation. Our service providers examine your skin type, discuss your goals, and determine if you’re a suitable candidate for microneedling. Our service providers also adjust the microneedling device according to your unique skin type — different densities of skin require different levels of microneedling.

During Microneedling…

The service provider will cleanse your facial skin and apply a numbing gel to ensure comfort throughout the procedure. Once your face is numb, the hand-held microneedling device will punch thousands of micro-channels into your skin’s surface. The depth of the micro-injuries will be just enough to stimulate collagen production but not enough to cause injuries. Depending on the treatment areas, your microneedling in Indianapolis should conclude within 30 minutes.

After Microneedling…

Microneedling involves minimal post-treatment side effects, such as redness, swelling, discomfort, tenderness, and bruising around the treatment areas. You might look like you have a harsh sunburn. Some patients also experience mild pinpoint bleeding for a few minutes. You can resume most of your daily activities immediately, but you should avoid strenuous workouts for a day or two. You should also avoid exfoliants for a few days.

Microneedling FAQs

How does microneedling work?

Microneedling works by activating your body’s innate collagen production capabilities. Collagen is a fibrous protein that makes your skin look firm and taut — it holds your skin upright against the force of gravity. As you grow older, your body’s ability to produce new collagen is compromised, leading to skin laxity and wrinkles. Microneedling stimulates your body’s natural collagen production capabilities, thus reversing the signs of aging.

When will I see the results?

Microneedling produces cumulative results over several weeks and treatments. The results of your microneedling in Indianapolis will gradually appear over 4 to 6 weeks as your body produces new collagen fibers, and you’ll also need additional treatments for optimal results. Instead of providing instant enhancements, microneedling encourages your body to heal itself, which takes time.

Will the results look natural?

The results of microneedling are completely natural because it stimulates natural collagen production. Over time, as your body produces new collagen fibers, your skin will look smoother, tighter, and more youthful. There are no signs of cosmetic work or manipulation.

How many treatments will I need?

Most patients need 3 to 6 microneedling sessions spaced 2 to 3 months apart for optimal results. Different treatment areas and concerns necessitate different treatment frequencies. Your service provider will recommend the ideal frequency for your needs. Furthermore, you will also need yearly sessions to maintain the results.
