Microneedling Q&A

What can microneedling do for my skin?

One of the reasons microneedling is such a popular treatment is the ability to address multiple skin concerns with the same approach. Some of the issues microneedling can address include:

  • Mild to moderate lines and wrinkles
  • Rosacea 
  • Loose or sagging skin
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Irregular texture and tone

Because microneedling can improve so many common skin complaints, it’s a great investment of your time and money. 


How does microneedling work?

Microneedling works by creating thousands of tiny punctures in your skin. Each of these microinjuries prompts your body’s natural healing response. New collagen is produced, which serves to smooth and soften your skin. 

Northshore Skincare offers the PiXel8-RFⓇ system from Rohrer Aesthetics, an advanced radiofrequency microneedling platform that incorporates radiofrequency energy into your microneedling sessions. The radiofrequency energy is conducted through the treatment needles into the deeper layer of your skin, producing heat. 

That heat further stimulates your natural reparative process, hastening new cell production and constricting your tissues, which helps resolve sagging and wrinkling. Radiofrequency can penetrate much deeper than the sterile needles used in traditional microneedling, taking this treatment to the next level.

Is microneedling painful?

If the idea of needles, skin punctures, and healing makes you apprehensive about microneedling, rest assured these treatments are not painful. You may feel some mild discomfort during treatments, but a topical anesthetic can help reduce sensations prior to your sessions. 

Many men and women prefer microneedling to more invasive options because there is no need for advance preparation, no local or general anesthetic, and no lengthy recovery time. Microneedling also brings no risk of an adverse reaction, as there are no chemicals or products used during treatments. 

When do I see the results of microneedling?

Expect some redness, swelling, and minimal discomfort for a few days after your session. As your body heals you begin to see the effects of your treatment. Be patient, as your body needs time to build all those new cells. 

You’ll find your skin improving every week, with the full effects visible after a few months. In most cases, a series of microneedling treatments are needed to achieve optimal results.
