People struggling with acne scars, enlarged pores, wrinkles, fine lines, and other skincare issues have numerous options when it comes to aesthetic treatments.

How Does Microneedling Involve?
A laser-free and non-surgical procedure, microneedling improves signs of fine lines, acne scars, facial wrinkles, and sun damage. This procedure utilizes microneedles to trigger and promote the rejuvenated skin growth. It involves the use of a device that is loaded with fine medical-grade tiny needles. Then this device is passed over your skin gently. The needles create microchannels in the skin with a depth of 0.5 to 2mm which in turn triggers the healing mechanism of the body along with increased production of proteins.
Protein deposition improves elasticity, the texture of the skin, and acne scars. It softens the wrinkles and the fine lines. To further improve the results, the microneedling procedure can be combined with PRP, growth factors, and hyaluronic acid-based serums.
Microneedle treatment should be performed by a trained medical esthetician or dermatologist. During the procedure, local anesthesia is applied to the targeted area to minimize any kind of discomfort. You may feel minimal to no pain during the treatment, and most patients describe it as a burning or small pricking sensation.
Issues Addressed by Microneedling
This technique is mainly used to address the following concerns:
- Acne and surgical scars
- Early signs of aging
- Sun damage
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Uneven skin texture
- Fade hyperpigmentation
- Improve the appearance of stretch marks
During your personalized consultation at RN Laser & Med Spa, Fort Pierce, FL, we will discuss your skin issues and the ways that microneedling can help you improve your appearance.
What Happens After a Microneedling Session?
After a treatment session, most people experience mild swelling and redness something like a sunburn for 24 to 48 hours. There are slight chances of pinpoint bruises or bleeding. Patients will start noticing smoother and more radiant-looking skin within a week or two of the treatment. However, full effects will be seen only a few months later after the full course of treatments has been completed.
Microneedling can be repeated every four to six weeks safely until the desired results are accomplished. The number of sessions depends on your aesthetic goals and response to the treatment. People with acne scarring, advanced sun damage, deep wrinkles, and smoking history may need more than three sessions to see the results.
Precautions to Take After Microneedling Treatment
Avoid bleaching creams, exfoliating products, harsh scrubs, acne creams, salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and retinoids after a session of microneedling. Besides, avoid sun exposure and use sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more. Directly after the microneedling treatment and on days one through four, use only mineral-based sunscreens and makeup. You can resume regular makeup and cream on the 5th day of the treatment.
