How Does Microneedling Work?

Microneedling works thanks to a special device, which contains several small needles at the tip of the device. The device uses the needles to quickly puncture dermal tissue, thus triggering the body’s healing processes.

Here’s the thing: when your body works to heal itself from a wound, it immediately triggers an influx of collagen and elastin production. Both of these skin essentials help encourage rapid cellular turnover, which helps:

  • Fade the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation
  • Minimize acne and acne scarring
  • Trigger skin-tightening effects
  • And more!

At Physician Skin Solutions, a licensed esthetician provides our microneedling treatments. To help manage potential discomfort during the treatment, your skin can be treated with ice or a topical numbing cream.
