Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a procedure in which Dr. Spohn uses a handheld wand with tiny, sterile needles to prick the surface of your skin to increase collagen production. It can also be called collagen induction therapy.

Your skin naturally loses collagen over time, which results in a saggy, aged appearance and can contribute to loss of fullness and wrinkles. With microneedling, Dr. Spohn encourages your skin to produce collagen naturally without the need for surgery or a lengthy recovery period.

What are the benefits of microneedling?

Though microneedling improves overall fullness in your skin, it can also:

  • Reduce acne scars
  • Reduce age spots
  • Improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduce the size of enlarged pores
  • Improve the appearance of scars and stretch marks
  • Improve skin tone and texture

Increased collagen production from microneedling can help a wide variety of skin complaints simply by triggering the natural collagen production process of your skin. If you’ve tried at-home treatments or chemical peels without success, microneedling may be the solution for you.

How is microneedling performed?

Dr. Spohn uses the Pollogen® Legend+™ radiofrequency microneedling system to perform safe, sterile treatments that are more effective than at-home dermal rollers or facial treatments. She waves the handheld wand over your skin while the needles prick the first layers of your skin. You’ll feel a small pinching or stinging sensation during the procedure.

The advantage of radiofrequency combined with microneedling is the ability of the handheld wand to alternate between heating and cooling the skin during treatment. Though this helps you stay comfortable throughout the procedure, it also stimulates more collagen production than microneedling alone.

A microneedling session lasts 30-60 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

What results can I expect after microneedling?

Immediately after your microneedling treatment, you may notice mild redness and swelling for up to a day. After this, your natural healing process takes over to heal your skin and induce collagen production.

Once your skin has healed after one week, you will notice improved skin tone and texture with more fullness and decreased appearance of fine lines and scarring.* You may need three to six sessions—depending on your skin condition—to see the best results.
