Microneedling in Wilmington, DE

Microneedling therapy is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. These needles are used to puncture the skin to create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin.

What conditions can be treated or improved with microneedling?

  • Fine lines and deep wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Loose, lax skin
  • Skin texture and pore size
  • Stretch marks
  • Melasma

How does medical microneedling work?

The device slides along the skin, penetrating the upper layers of the skin to create numerous tiny needle wounds. The procedure prompts the body to respond through the creation of new collagen and elastin fibers. The skin plumps and thickens, reducing the appearance of scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.

What can I expect after the procedure?

A topical cream is used to lessen sensitivity on the face, so there is no pain during the treatment. There is very little downtime, although expect your skin to look and feel mildly sunburnt for about 24 hours after the treatment. After a day or two, it will also start to flake as the skin cells slough off. After about one week, you’ll see the new, brighter, smooth skin.

Are there any side effects?

Microneedling does not involve injections, therefore allergic reactions and side effects are minimal with this type of treatment. Minor flaking and dryness may occur but normally subside within 24-48 hours. This treatment can be done on the face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back. For optimal results, a series of 3-4 treatments spaced about 6 weeks apart is recommended. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks, or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 4-6 week intervals.
