Microneedling is an advanced medical aesthetics treatment that uses your body’s natural healing ability to prompt improvements in numerous skin issues. Some of the skin complaints microneedling can treat include:

  • Enlarged pores
  • Stretch marks
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Loose or sagging skin
  • Acne scarring
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Rough skin texture
  • Sun damage
  • Rosacea

The ability to treat more than one condition with the same procedure is part of why so many people are choosing to give microneedling a try. Treatments not only improve the look of your skin but also the texture, leaving you with a soft and radiant complexion.

How does microneedling work?

Microneedling uses a handheld, powered device covered in sterile treatment needles to make tiny punctures into the deeper layer of your skin. Each time the needles enter and exit your skin, they create tiny micro-injuries.

Your body responds to those micro-injuries with a swift healing reaction. It produces new collagen and elastin, and circulation to the area improves.

The newly formed collagen plumps and smooths skin. That’s why microneedling is sometimes called collagen induction therapy.

Is microneedling painful?

All this talk of micro-injuries and healing might lead you to believe that microneedling treatments are painful. In reality, most people find microneedling easily tolerated.

Shorebreak Concierge uses the MD NeedleⓇ Pen for all microneedling treatments. The innovative device is one of the best in the industry and offers an outstanding safety track record.

The treatment needles only extend between 0.25mm to 2.50mm into your skin. The needles are tapered to a fine point, allowing them to part the outermost layers of skin without causing damage.

You can expect a degree of redness, swelling, and tenderness in the hours and days after your treatment. Over-the-counter pain medications can soothe any tenderness, and your skin does heal rapidly. Simply avoid sun exposure or immersion in hot water while your body works to create new tissue.

If you’d like to try microneedling from the comfort of your own home, call Shorebreak Concierge to schedule a visit. Online scheduling is also an option and takes just moments to complete.
