Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is an aesthetic treatment that harnesses the power of your body’s healing response to create beautiful improvements in the look and feel of your skin. It’s among the most popular treatments on the market, and for good reason. 

Some of the skin issues microneedling can improve include:

  • Acne
  • Enlarged pores
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Sun damage
  • Loose or sagging skin
  • Dull skin tone

One of the best benefits of microneedling is the ability to address more than one skin complaint at the same time. This makes it a great value as compared to using multiple treatments to address different skin concerns. 

How does microneedling work?

Microneedling works by kicking your skin’s healing powers into high gear. The team at Evergreen Wellness Clinic relies on the SkinPenⓇ microneedling device for these treatments. 

When you come in for treatments, a special numbing cream helps reduce sensations in the treatment area. Dr. Natarajan then moves the treatment handpiece over the surface of your skin.

The SkinPen device is covered in tiny sterile treatment needles. These needles quickly move in and out of the deeper layers of your skin, creating tiny channels. 

Your body responds to each of these micro-injuries with a powerful healing reaction. Circulation to the area improves and new collagen and elastin are created, smoothing and plumping the skin.   

Areas of hyperpigmentation and scar tissue are broken apart. As your body heals, skin is softer, smoother, and more toned. 

Is microneedling safe?

When performed by a medical professional with extensive experience, microneedling is both safe and effective. Dr. Natarajan has advanced training in microneedling and other skin procedures, and she has helped many people improve the appearance of their skin. 

Having this treatment done in a salon or spa can put you at risk of infection if the treatment device is not properly sterilized. Inferior microneedling equipment can also harm the skin by penetrating too deeply, or the treatment can be ineffective if the needles don’t penetrate deeply enough. 

There are many at-home microneedling devices available in stores and online, but these devices can damage your skin if too much pressure is used or they are not fully sterilized. Microneedling, like most advanced medical aesthetics treatments, is best done by a professional.
