Please contact our cosmetic providers to discuss your microneedling treatment in Miami, FL.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation technique that activates your body’s innate healing and collagen production capabilities. This procedure involves making microscopic punctures on your skin’s surface to activate collagen production, which, in turn, makes your skin look smooth, even-textured, and youthful. Microneedling can also be combined with PRP (platelet-rich plasmas) for enhanced results.

How Does Microneedling Work?

Collagen is a structural protein that makes your skin look firm and voluminous. It holds your skin upright to make it stay firmly on your face, resisting the gravitational pull. As such, collagen is responsible for your skin’s youthful, taut, and smooth appearance. As you grow older, your body’s ability to produce collagen and elastin is compromised, leading to sagging skin and the appearance of wrinkles. Furthermore, your body’s compromised healing capabilities prevent your acne scars from healing effectively.

Microneedling with Dermapen activates your body’s natural healing processes and collagen production capabilities. The microscopic injuries on your skin’s surface don’t harm you, but they signal your body to start the healing process. Your body responds by increasing blood circulation to the “injured” sites, thereby increasing skin cell turnover and collagen production. The damaged skin tissues are eventually replaced by healthier skin cells, and the new collagen fibers make your skin look smooth and taut.

Your Microneedling Treatment

What happens during the consultation?

Mocasa Wellness Center starts your microneedling treatment with a personal consultation with our cosmetic providers. The cosmetic provider will examine your skin, discuss your goals, and review your medical history to create the ideal treatment plan. This will mostly consist of adjusting the microneedling device according to your skin concerns and determining if you also need PRP therapy.

What is the treatment like?

During the treatment, the cosmetic provider will cleanse your facial skin and apply a numbing gel on the treatment areas. They’ll use the Dermapen device to make micro-channels on the skin’s surface, activating your body’s innate healing capabilities. All the treatment areas will be covered within 30 minutes.

When will the results appear?

The results will gradually appear over several weeks as your body produces new skin cells and collagen fibers. Your skin will look and feel firmer over several weeks. However, you may need 3 to 5 microneedling sessions spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart for optimal results. Your cosmetic provider will recommend the ideal treatment frequency for you.

Is there any downtime or recovery period?

Your skin will look red and flushed after the treatment, but the redness will dissipate in a few days. You can resume your daily activities immediately after the treatment, but you should avoid direct exposure to sunlight. Your skin may start peeling in a few days, indicating that the dead skin tissues are being replaced by healthier tissues.
