Microneedling and Skin Needling at Glow Dermspa in Lakewood Ranch FL

Microneedling

Microneedling is a skin rejuvenating treatment that uses a small hand-held device with tiny needles that create microchannels or tiny holes in the skin’s surface. These microchannels immediately trigger the healing process, stimulating your body to produce collagen and elastin in the deeper layers of the skin. Collagen production is crucial to our skin’s integrity. More collagen means a more youthful appearance.

Microneedling improves the texture and firmness of the skin, and it reduces large pores, stretch marks, and treats acne scarring.

It may feel like a light sunburn, with some redness and light peeling for around 3 days. For more aggressive treatments, mild redness and peeling may be experienced for 5 – 7 days.

Yes! Microneedling is a skin rejuvenating treatment that benefits both men and women.

Microneedling with PRF (Platelet-Rich Fibrin) combines microneedling with the application of your own platelet-rich fibrin to enhance the treatment's rejuvenating effects. PRF contains growth factors that stimulate collagen production for a richer treatment and accelerates skin healing for even better results.

How Microneedling Works

Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin’s surface. These micro-injuries trigger the body’s natural healing response, stimulating collagen and elastin production to repair and regenerate the skin. As the skin heals, it becomes smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking.

At Glow Dermspa, our skilled professionals use state-of-the-art microneedling devices to ensure precise, controlled treatment tailored to your individual skin concerns. The treatment can be combined with PRF (Platelet-Rich Fibrin) or other skin-boosting serums to enhance the rejuvenating effects and deliver even better results.

Microneedling is a versatile treatment that effectively addresses a wide range of skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, large pores, and uneven skin texture. By promoting the growth of healthy, new skin cells, microneedling helps to restore your skin’s natural radiance and beauty.

What to Expect

When you arrive for your microneedling appointment at Glow Dermspa, our experienced skin care specialists will begin by discussing your skin concerns and treatment goals. We will assess your skin’s condition to ensure that microneedling is the most suitable treatment for your needs.

Before the treatment, a numbing cream will be applied to the target area to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Once your skin is numb, our specialist will use a microneedling device to create tiny micro-channels in the skin’s surface. The treatment may cause mild discomfort, but the numbing cream helps to minimize any pain.

Following the microneedling session, your skin may appear red and slightly swollen, similar to a mild sunburn. These side effects are normal and should subside within a few days. Our specialist will provide you with aftercare instructions to help soothe your skin and enhance the healing process.
