What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is the use of small needles to penetrate the skin. Microneedling stimulates the skin to start the healing process and create new collagen.  By breaking down the skin, you body creates a controlled wound response resulting in new collagen formation.

Is all Microneedling the same ?

No, there are many ways to do microneedling. 

 At our office Dr. Gaitan does his microneedling in Miami with the FDA cleared SkinPen. When creating wounds in the skin with Microneedling we want to ensure the highest level of sterility and safety for our patients.  

What is Microneedling good for?

Microneedling stimulates collagen production. We use microneedling for anti-aging as well as for scarring. Dr. Sergio Gaitan uses different microneedling techniques depending on the goal of treatment.  Microneedling can be used for old sunken scars as well as acne scars. Microneedling can also be used for skin rejuvenation and replacing the collagen that we lose every year after 30.

What are the disadvantages of Microneedling

Microneedling is a really safe procedure when done properly. The main thing you will experience is a slight discomfort during Microneedling treatment. At our office in the West Kendall area of Miami, Fl we use a topical anesthetic to help with that discomfort associated with microneedling .

After microneedling treatment only redness is expected. However under more aggressive microneedling settings for better  microneedling results you may experience bruising that will resolve in 1 week. For a comfortable microneedling in Miami come visit our office. 

 

What does your face look like after Microneedling?

After microneedling you will be red in the treated areas. At our office located in the West Kendall area of Miami, Fl we apply a cream after microneedling treatment to soothe the skin. After microneedling redness can last for 24-48 hours. However, if more aggressive microneedling settings are used for better microneedling results, redness and bruising may last up to 1 week. Come experience our microneedling in Miami.

 

How long do Microneedling 
results last ?

This is the best part your results from microneedling can last for years. Since with microneedling your body makes new collagen, it really depends on how you take care of your skin. Good sun protection ensures you have longer lasting results after microneedling. Once we turn 30 our body begins to lose collagen. So microneedling is a great way to replace it and improve the overall texture of the skin.  With the constant sun damage our skin faces it is a good idea to get a yearly microneedling in Miami treatment to rebuild collagen. 

 

Can you see results after 
one session of Microneedling?

Yes! With more aggressive microneedling settings you can definitely see results after 1 microneedling session. Lighter microneedling settings give the skin a nice glow. Like a facial but with longer lasting results. For deeper scars and wrinkles sometimes more microneedling sessions are required. Depending on the severity of the scars or wrinkles it may take between 3 to 6 microneedling sessions to achieve your desired results. We love giving our patients long term results with our microneedling in Miami treatments. 

 

How long does it take for your face to look normal after Microneedling?

With a typical microneedling treatment, after 48 hours your skin looks normal again. When more aggressive microneedling settings are used for severe scars and deeper wrinkles, redness can persist for up to 1 week. So make sure you plan accordingly for your microneedling in Miami.
