Microneedling Q & A

Microneedling makes micropunctures in your skin using tiny needles. These micropunctures boost collagen and elastin production without invasive procedures. 

The Paviol Dermatology team uses this micro-fractional skin resurfacing technology to improve your skin’s natural healing process, generate new cells, and reduce skin imperfections. The procedure also treats sun damage and superficial acne scars whcih results in a smoother complexion.

Your aesthetics provider also uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from your own blood to speed healing and improve your overall results.

What are the benefits of microneedling?

Microneedling is a simple, painless procedure that produces dramatic results without downtime.

Is microneedling right for me?

After reviewing your beauty goals, desired results, and medical history, your dermatology specialist will let you know if you’re a candidate for microneedling at Paviol Dermatology. They examine your skin before tailoring a treatment plan that’s best for you.

What should I expect during microneedling?

During microneedling procedures, you rest in a comfortable reclining chair in a relaxing room. Your provider numbs the treatment area and will take a blood sample from a vein in your arm to obtain the PRP. They spin the blood in a centrifuge for use during microneedling.

Your provider then uses a hand-held device to make tiny punctures in your skin to stimulate new cell production. The PRP is placed onto your skin during the session to maximize your results.

What happens after microneedling?

After microneedling procedures at Paviol Dermatology, it is best to refrain from strenuous activity and hot environments for 12-24 hours. Expect some swelling, redness, and tenderness, side effects that will disappear over time. Do not ice the treatment area nor use any anti-inflammatory medications as they will hinder the intentional inflammatory process.  The inflammatory process is created intentionally to stimulate new collagen formation.   

Over time as skin cells regenerate, you can expect smoother, tighter, younger-looking skin. Routine repeat procedures help you maintain your revitalized skin. Your Paviol Dermatology specialist might combine microneedling with other cosmetic procedures to give you the best possible results.
