Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment aimed at inducing the formation of deep dermal collagen to improve your skin’s structure, strength, and flexibility. To stimulate collagen, Westlake Laser and Aesthetics uses the Rejuvapen™. 

This innovative microneedling tool places microtears in the surface layer of your skin to simulate an injury. Your skin reacts by sending over healing cells to “repair” the damage, which leads to an increase in collagen production. 

Am I a good candidate for microneedling?

Westlake Laser and Aesthetics determines if you’re a good candidate for microneedling during your 30-minute consultation. During the consultation, your microneedling expert reviews your medical history, as well as your aesthetic goals and beauty concerns. They also evaluate your skin. 

Microneedling is considered a safe cosmetic treatment for most people. You may want to consider contacting Westlake Laser and Aesthetics to discuss microneedling if you’re looking for a discrete treatment to improve your:

  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Acne
  • Acne scars
  • Large pores

Depending on your aesthetic needs, your provider may include other treatments along with your microneedling, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to accelerate the rejuvenation process, or a chemical peel to help lessen the appearance of deep acne scars. 

What happens during microneedling?

Microneedling treatments occur at the Westlake Laser and Aesthetics office and take about 30 minutes. To ease discomfort during your cosmetic procedure, your provider applies a topical anesthetic prior to starting treatment. 

Though you may experience some skin redness, there is no downtime after microneedling. Total recovery time takes 1-2 days. Because of the gentle nature of microneedling, you may need more than one treatment to get the best results. 

How long do microneedling results last?

The results of your microneedling may last years. To prolong the benefits and maintain your healthy, youthful look, Westlake Laser and Aesthetics offers specific guidelines based on your aesthetic needs, which may include special skin care products, daily use of sunblock, and maintenance treatments as needed.

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that rejuvenates your skin from the inside out. To schedule your microneedling consultation, call Westlake Laser and Aesthetics or book an appointment online today.
