Microneedling Q & A

Tangchitnob MD

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that improves the appearance of your skin. During treatment, the aesthetic specialists at Tangchitnob MD use a cosmetic tool that pokes tiny holes in your skin, stimulating the production collagen, which is the protein that makes your skin strong, flexible, and youthful.   

What types of conditions can microneedling treat?

The aesthetic specialists at Tangchitnob MD use microneedling to improve the appearance of a number of skin flaws, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne and other skin scars
  • Skin discoloration, including sun damage
  • Large pores
  • Stretch marks

Microneedling has also been shown to be an effective treatment for unwanted hair loss.

What can I expect during treatment?

During treatment, the aesthetic specialists at Tangchitnob MD first clean your skin to prepare it for microneedling, and they may apply a numbing agent to reduce any discomfort.

Once your skin is prepped, the aesthetic specialist begins the microneedling treatment, which can take 30 to 60 minutes depending on the area you’re having treated. While the numbing agent may reduce pain, you may feel some sensation as the microneedling tool works its magic over your skin.

After microneedling, a cream is applied to help promote the healing process. Due to the action of the treatment, your skin may be red for a few days in a way similar to a sunburn.

You may notice an improvement in the look of your skin within a week after the first treatment. However, for best results, you may need more than one treatment. The team at Tangchitnob MD develops individualized treatment plans for each patient based on needs and aesthetic goals.

How do I care for my skin after microneedling?

After microneedling, you will want to avoid the sun for about two days. If you need to go outside for any length of time, use hats and sunglasses for protection.

After your skin has healed, it’s important to continue to protect yourself from the sun by covering up and using sunblock. Continued sun protection may help the results of your microneedling last longer.
