Microneedling: Facilitate Collagen Production and Reverse the Signs of Aging

Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries on the skin. These injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing response, which leads to the production of collagen and elastin. This can help improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling in Pittsburg can also be used to treat acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage. We use the cutting-edge SkinPen device to ensure highly-personalized treatments that cause no harsh side effects or skin damage.

Boost Your Microneedling
Results With PRP

Microneedling with PRP is a more advanced microneedling treatment. PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is derived from your own blood. PRP contains a high concentration of growth factors and other nutrients. Growth factors are the body’s primary healing agents — they facilitate collagen production, skin cell regeneration, blood clotting, and more. When applied to the skin after your microneedling in Pittsburg, the growth factors catalyze your body’s natural collagen production capabilities, ensuring superior results.

Microneedling FAQs

How does microneedling work?

Microneedling works by stimulating collagen production. When the SkinPen microneedles penetrate the skin, it creates micro-injuries. The body’s natural wound healing process is then stimulated, and collagen is produced in order to heal the “wounds.” This increase in collagen production can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation.

What can I expect from my microneedling consultation?

At your consultation, your aesthetician will assess your skin concerns and determine whether microneedling in Pittsburg is right for you. They will also discuss the number of treatments you may need in order to achieve your desired results. The cosmetic provider will adjust the SkinPen device according to your unique skin type to ensure the optimal level of treatment.

How is microneedling performed?

During your microneedling treatment, our certified aesthetician will cleanse your facial skin and apply a numbing gel to ensure comfort. They will use the SkinPen microneedling device to create tiny punctures in the top layer of your skin on the treatment areas. This triggers your body’s natural healing process. The procedure should conclude within an hour.

What happens during microneedling with PRP?

The microneedling with PRP treatment is performed in the same way as the standard microneedling, with the addition of a PRP treatment. The cosmetic provider will harvest a small sample of your blood before the microneedling session. Your blood will be spun in a centrifuge to isolate the PRPs, which will be applied to your skin after microneedling.

What are the side effects of microneedling?

Microneedling involves minimal post-treatment side effects, such as mild redness, tenderness, and soreness in the treatment areas. These side effects typically resolve within a day or two.

Does microneedling involve downtime?

No, microneedling does not require any downtime. You can resume your normal activities immediately after treatment. You should, however, avoid direct sunlight and strenuous physical activities until the side effects have receded completely.

When will I see the results of microneedling?

You may start to see the results of microneedling after just one treatment. However, most people need a series of treatments in order to achieve their desired results. The results will start appearing after a few weeks, with continued improvements over several months as your body produces new collagen fibers.

How many microneedling treatments will I need?

The number of microneedling treatments you need will depend on your individual skin concerns and goals. Your aesthetician will develop a customized treatment plan for you, but most people need at least 3 sessions spaced 2 to 3 months apart for optimal results.
