Microneedling Q&A


What is microneedling?

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, uses tiny needles to create micro wounds in the surface of your skin. These wounds trigger your body’s healing mechanisms, rushing in collagen and improving cellular turnover. 

 

After applying a topical numbing cream to reduce sensation, your provider at Cascade Medspa & Laser Centre glides a special vibrating device across your skin. The device creates tiny pricks that trigger your body to think it’s injured but small enough not to be visible or to cause bleeding. 

 

Your skin gets to work almost immediately, healing the wounds. After just two weeks, you start to see dramatic results. Microneedling remodels existing collagen, promotes new collagen formation, and improves the health of your skin’s blood vessels. 

 

Collagen is a major tissue protein that makes your skin resilient, smooth, and healthy.

What types of skin concerns does microneedling address?

Microneedling notably impacts your skin’s texture, tone, and overall quality. Consider microneedling as a way to reduce the appearance of:

 

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Acne scars
  • Large pores
  • Sunspots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Stretch marks
  • Scars
  • Rough skin texture

 

Usually, patients choose microneedling treatments for their face, but the team at Cascade Medspa & Laser Centre use the device to treat scarred or stretch-marked skin in other areas too. In fact, microneedling has been found effective for removing stretch marks from the thighs and abdominal area. 

What is it like to recover from microneedling?

One of the best aspects of microneedling is that it requires virtually no downtime. The procedure barely disturbs the outer layer of the skin but promotes healing and growth in the deeper layers. 

 

In the day or so after microneedling, you may have slight swelling and redness, similar to the look of a sunburn. The estheticians at Cascade Medspa & Laser Centre can apply a mineral-based powder to your face immediately following the procedure to mask these side effects.  

 

The day after your microneedling, you’ll have only very mild signs of your procedure. You may experience slight skin peeling about three days post-treatment.
