What is Microneedling?

If home skin treatments aren't proving effective to address your concerns, you may want to consider microneedling sessions at Contemporary Dermatology. As a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment, microneedling uses several fine-gauge needles to safely produce tiny injuries in the skin. The micro-injuries trigger the production of collagen and elastin to enhance the appearance and health of your skin. Often performed in combination with vitamin serums or platelet-rich plasma (PRP), microneedling can help minimize pores, scars, and stretch marks. Schedule an appointment with board-certified dermatologist Dr. Robert Nossa in Marstons Mills, MA to hear more about our personalized microneedling procedures to help you meet your goals.

What are the Benefits of Microneedling?

Even minor skin concerns can have a major impact on your quality of life. Contemporary Dermatology recommends microneedling when other home remedies haven't been effective in addressing your concerns. This unique treatment offers many benefits, including:

  • Quick treatment times: Microneedling procedures can be completed in as little as an hour, making it a convenient option for busy patients.
  • Minimal discomfort: Contemporary Dermatology uses a form of anesthesia to numb the skin before treatment, ensuring your comfort throughout the procedure.
  • No downtime: You can return to normal activities immediately after your microneedling treatment.

Our Microneedling Technique

Collagen induction therapy with microneedling is done in one of our private treatment rooms in around 30 – 60 minutes with local anesthesia or numbing cream if desired. The areas of skin being treated will be cleaned before the handpiece is evenly passed over. Once the microneedling is done, a topical treatment, such as PRP (platelet-rich plasma) or a vitamin serum, may be applied so the nutrients can penetrate deeper into the skin. Following microneedling, you may have some redness and swelling for about a day. It can take about 1 – 2 months as the elastin and collagen supply increases until you notice visible improvements in the appearance and health of your skin. You should schedule follow-up sessions every 4 – 6 weeks for ideal results and lasting skin health.

Microneedling FAQs

Is microneedling safe?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that uses medical-grade needles to create tiny injuries in the skin. Though all cosmetic treatments come with some degree of risk, microneedling is considered safe for improving the appearance of your skin. These side effects can be minimized by choosing an experienced professional like Dr. Nossa to perform treatment.

How do you prepare for microneedling?

Before your microneedling appointment, it is important to cleanse your skin and remove all makeup and cosmetics. You should also avoid sun exposure as much as possible and use sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. A member of our trained team can discuss any other specific instructions or guidelines during a skin consultation.

Will my microneedling results look natural?

Microneedling results will look natural as the treatment works with your body's own collagen production. Patients see a gradual improvement in their skin over the course of several weeks as new collagen is produced. Our goal at Contemporary Dermatology is to provide results that look natural and make you feel confident in your appearance.
