3 Things to Know About Micro-Needling

When patients first hear the term “micro needling” it typically makes their skin crawl because images of tiny needles being injected into their skin comes to mind. However, as a safe and virtually non-invasive procedure, micro-needling is used to help encourage the body’s natural production of collagen and reduce the appearance of scars as well. Just as with many procedures out there, there are several myths associated with micro-needling. Read on to learn more about these myths and learn the wonderful facts about micro-needling.

  • Micro-Needling Resembles Acupuncture

If you are thinking that micro-needling is like getting acupuncture done on your face, then you may have been a victim of false information. Although micro-needling does in fact use small needles in order to encourage the production of collagen in the skin, it is done using one contained device that houses several tiny needles within it.

  • Micro-Needling Is Painful

Just as with any sort of procedure, one of the first questions that patients want to know is whether or not the procedure is painful. Luckily, micro needling isn’t deemed to be a painful procedure. In fact, many patients compare the procedure to having a light grade piece of sandpaper brushed across their face. So, although the procedure itself may be a bit irritating and uncomfortable, it is far from painful.

  • Micro-Needling Requires Lots of Recovery Time

As one of the greatest benefits of micro-needling, it requires virtually no recovery time at all. In fact, if you want to go back to work right after getting your micro-needling done, you can do so. However, your skin will be red and a bit irritated for a day or two after the procedure. But with a little bit of cover up and icing, you can help to hide and get rid of the redness that you are experiencing.

Micro-needling is a great tool used to help produce new collagen in your skin. If you would like to learn more about this procedure or schedule an appointment, contact Cara Mia Medical Day Spa today!
