Microneedling: Rejuvenate Your Skin

At Balanced Skin Dermatology and Aesthetics in Newport Beach, our board-certified dermatologists offer microneedling, a cutting-edge treatment that harnesses your body's natural healing process to rejuvenate your skin from the inside out. Whether you're looking to reduce the signs of aging, improve skin texture and tone, or address specific concerns like acne scars or hyperpigmentation, microneedling can help you achieve your best skin yet.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive treatment that uses fine needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin. These tiny punctures stimulate the body's natural wound-healing response, promoting the production of collagen and elastin, two essential proteins that keep skin firm, smooth, and youthful.

As the skin heals, it creates new, healthy tissue that is more even in tone and texture. Microneedling can effectively address a wide range of skin concerns, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars and other types of scarring
  • Hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone
  • Enlarged pores
  • Stretch marks
  • Rough or dull skin texture

With minimal downtime and long-lasting results, microneedling is a popular choice for patients seeking to refresh and rejuvenate their skin without surgery or extensive recovery periods.

The Benefits of Microneedling

Microneedling offers numerous benefits for the skin, making it a versatile and effective treatment option for many patients. Some of the key advantages of microneedling include:

  • Stimulates collagen and elastin production, leading to firmer, more youthful-looking skin
  • Improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars
  • Reduces hyperpigmentation and evens out skin tone
  • Enhances skin texture, leaving it smoother and more radiant
  • Minimizes enlarged pores
  • Suitable for all skin types and tones
  • Can be combined with other treatments, such as topical products or PRP, for enhanced results
  • Minimal downtime, allowing patients to return to normal activities quickly

Our experienced dermatologists will assess your skin and recommend the most appropriate microneedling treatment plan based on your individual needs, skin type, and desired results.

What to Expect During and After Your Microneedling Treatment

Microneedling treatments are performed in our state-of-the-art facility by our skilled dermatologists and trained medical aestheticians. The procedure typically takes 30-60 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

Before your treatment, your skin will be cleansed, and a topical numbing cream will be applied to ensure your comfort. Your provider will then use a sterile microneedling device to create tiny punctures in your skin, stimulating the healing response. You may feel a slight sensation of pressure or warmth during the treatment, but most patients find it tolerable.

After your microneedling session, your skin may appear red and feel slightly tender, similar to a mild sunburn. These side effects typically subside within 24-48 hours. Our team will provide detailed aftercare instructions, including the use of gentle skincare products and broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin and promote optimal healing.

Most patients require a series of 3-6 microneedling treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, to achieve their desired results. We will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan and schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and ensure your satisfaction.

Enhance Your Microneedling Results with PRP

At Balanced Skin Dermatology and Aesthetics, we offer the option to combine microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for enhanced skin rejuvenation. PRP is a concentrated portion of your own blood that contains growth factors and other nutrients that promote healing and collagen production.

During a microneedling with PRP treatment, a small sample of your blood is drawn and processed to isolate the PRP. This PRP is then applied to your skin during the microneedling procedure, allowing the growth factors to penetrate deeply into the skin through the micro-channels created by the needles. This combination treatment can lead to more dramatic improvements in skin texture, tone, and overall appearance.
