Microneedling

Microneedling is an advanced micromedical skin needling procedure that stimulates skin regeneration and activates healing. The microneedles create small punctures in the skin, which in turn stimulate new collagen and elastin to form. This natural repairing process creates smoother, brighter, healthier, and younger-looking skin. Microneedling is not painful, has minimal to no downtime, and leaves your skin looking tighter and rejuvenated. It also can be performed on the face, neck, chest, hands, and stretch marks anywhere on the body for all skin types.

Benefits of Microneedling

Dr. Diamond can correct textural skin imperfections quickly and comfortably.

Acne, scarring, and stretch marks often leave physical traces on the skin that cannot be hidden with makeup. Having poor skin texture can be damaging to a person’s self-confidence. Dr. Diamond offers non-surgical, in-office microneedling treatment, which smooths bumps and plumps grooves on the skin for a brighter, softer surface.

Microneedling rejuvenates the skin by addressing superficial blemishes and wrinkles.

The natural aging process and years of sun exposure can create fine lines and skin discoloration. Dr. Diamond performs microneedling treatment to provide patients with dermal rejuvenation that produces younger-looking skin without the need for major surgery or extensive downtime.

The results of microneedling trigger natural and prolonged skin enhancement.

Microneedling promotes collagen and elastin production as well as skin cell regeneration. These naturally occurring healing responses continue to enhance the skin in the weeks and months following treatment, ensuring long-term improvement. Several sessions may be necessary to achieve the desired result.

Addressing Any Concerns You May Have

There is little to no downtime required after microneedling. Patients may experience some redness and swelling for 2 to 3 days. A regular skin care regimen can be resumed after 3 days, but alcohol-based toners and sun exposure should be avoided for 10 to 14 days.

The tiny punctures created by the microneedling roller are nearly imperceivable. Because microneedling is minimally invasive, it does not result in any visible scarring.

The cost of your treatment will depend on the extent of correction and number of sessions needed to create your desired changes. This will be discussed with you in detail during your consultation.

Dr. Diamond applies a topical anesthetic cream to the treatment area so there is minimal to no pain during this procedure.



Frequently Asked Questions About Microneedling

A: Both microneedling and laser treatment produce similar results such as skin texture improvement and scar reduction. During your consultation, Dr. Diamond will assess your unique condition and determine which skin resurfacing procedure will benefit you the most.
A: After a microneedling session, which takes about an hour, your skin will start to naturally regenerate and heal, working below the surface in the dermis. As collagen production increases, new skin cells are generated, and blood supply is enhanced. It can take up to six weeks before signs of regeneration and repair become visible. The process will continue over the following months, providing you with natural and long-lasting enhancement.
A: While patients may see some improvement after at-home microneedling, it is crucial to have the procedure performed by a professional. Dr. Diamond possesses the expertise and meticulousness required to perform microneedling safely and efficiently, as he understands how deep the needles should go into the skin and the level of aggression necessary to obtain the best results. He also offers several options for microneedling, such as platelet-rich plasma, that provide more dramatic results and are not available for at-home use.
