Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment for skin imperfections. The treatment remodels your skin by inducing the production of collagen, a structural protein that keeps it firm, and elastin, which keeps your skin tight.

At Chrysolite Aesthetics, Dr. Abu-Zeitoon uses SkinPen®, the only FDA-approved microneedling device, to make your microneedling treatment as safe as possible. SkinPen punctures your skin to create tiny consistent channels that usually aren’t deep enough to cause bleeding. They’re also small enough that they don’t leave scars.

Your body’s natural process of healing and regeneration heals the microchannels. This involves collagen and elastin remodeling for long-lasting results. You might need a series of microneedling treatments for the most significant improvement possible.

How does microneedling improve my skin?

The collagen and elastin remodelling process that microneedling induces results in dramatic improvements to your skin’s texture. You might also see a difference in its overall tone and glow once your skin finishes healing. 

If you’re not familiar with skin care treatments and services, Dr. Abu-Zeitoon can help you find one that applies to your goals. She might recommend microneedling if your skin concerns include:

  • Large pores
  • Acne scars
  • Other minor scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Rough texture
  • Hyperpigmentation

If your skin concerns are particularly severe or if you’re interested in faster healing with microneedling, Dr. Abu-Zeitoon can make recommendations for add-ons to the treatment. 

Which areas can I target with microneedling?

Your first thought might be to target your face with microneedling since skin concerns there affect your appearance the most. However, you don’t have to limit the treatment to your face only. You can also target textural issues like scars and stretch marks on your chest, arms, abdomen, thighs, and other areas.

How can I enhance my microneedling treatment?

Chrysolite Aesthetics offers microneedling enhancements for additional benefits and collagen stimulation. For your microneedling session, Dr. Abu-Zeitoon might recommend:

Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling

RF microneedling introduces gentle radio waves to your treatment to heat and stimulate deeper tissues. This improves collagen production.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

PRP microneedling treatments, including the Vampire Facial® and PRP hair restoration, accelerate your tissue regeneration. PRP includes platelets from your blood that release growth factors to facilitate cell turnover and tissue remodelling.
