What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is an aesthetic treatment that uses your skin’s natural healing powers to rejuvenate your look and fix common skin concerns.

Microneedling treatments at Neighborhood Wellness Clinic & Medical Spa are done to treat:

  • Acne scars, large pores
  • Wrinkles
  • Sun damage and uneven skin tone
  • Lax skin & thin skin
  • Stretch marks

Microneedling is used to treat acne scars for people ages 18 years and older. Microneedling is safe for all skin types.

How does Microneedling work?

Collagen and elastin are structural proteins found in the dermal layer of skin. These proteins are responsible for your skin’s youthful strength and resilience. As you get older, collagen and elastin production slows down, which contributes to many of the visible signs of aging. Linda uses microneedling to create controlled microinjuries in the surface layer of your skin. These microinjuries activate your skin’s healing cascade, which triggers the production of collagen and elastin.

Your skin closes the tiny tears from the microneedling quickly. By activating the healing process, microneedling triggers a remodeling of the tissue. The remodeling then creates firmer, stronger, and younger-looking skin without your skin enduring any real damage. You should start to see results from microneedling within 1-4 weeks. Your results may last 6-12 months. Microneedling is a gentle and safe cosmetic treatment. Linda typically performs microneedling treatments in a series of sessions, normally spaced about 12 weeks apart. She will finalize your procedure with a specialized growth factor and suggests the  Hydrinity Restorative Kit for home post care.
