Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin treatment that takes advantage of your skin’s natural healing abilities to rebuild its collagen. During the treatment, Dr. Jnananand uses a roller or pen with lots of fine needles to create small, shallow injuries in your skin’s surface. The tiny injuries cause your skin to start remodeling from the inside out, resulting in tightening, brightening, and smoothing.
Before the treatment, Dr. Jnananand may apply a topical numbing cream to your skin to make sure you won’t feel pain or discomfort throughout the process. You’ll start to see your results just a couple of weeks after your treatment.
Depending on the initial quality of your skin, Dr. Jnananand might recommend a series of several microneedling treatments or regular maintenance treatments for the best possible results.
Microneedling can transform your skin in several specific ways. It can diminish or fully treat many common skin flaws and features that you might wish you didn’t have. You should book a microneedling consultation at Radiance MD if you want to treat one or more of the following:
While most people choose to target only their face with microneedling, you can request microneedling for scars and stretch marks on other parts of your body too. If you have other features you’d like to treat, Dr. Jnananand can create a comprehensive treatment plan for you, including more than one cosmetic treatment.
While microneedling alone can make a big difference for the tone, texture, and overall quality of your skin, you may wish to achieve faster and more vibrant results by adding platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to your treatment. PRP is an increasingly popular tool in medicine that uses cells from your own blood to promote healing and regeneration. Specifically, it contains platelets, the cells responsible for injury repair.
If you decide to add PRP to your microneedling treatment, Dr. Jnananand draws a small sample of your blood and prepares it by separating and removing the red and white blood cells. Then, she applies it to your skin topically during the treatment using a needle and syringe.
