Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment in which Dr. Hindi or a member of the aesthetic team at Luminous Vein Care and Aesthetics use a roller device to make hundreds of microscopic punctures in your skin.

While this might sound scary or painful, especially if you’re nervous about needles, rest assured that microneedling is virtually painless and the tiny punctures close almost as quickly as they’re made. Nonetheless, this treatment stimulates your body’s healing response and floods your skin with oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to heal the perceived injuries.

What skin conditions does microneedling correct?

At Luminous Vein Care and Aesthetics, Dr. Hindi and his team recommend microneedling to rejuvenate your skin. Microneedling can reduce the appearance of signs of aging and other imperfections including:

  • Fine lines and mild wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Large pores
  • Age spots
  • Reduced skin elasticity

How does microneedling work?

Microneedling makes tiny punctures in your skin which trigger your body’s natural healing response. As your skin is flooded with fresh, nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood, your skin starts to repair itself and generate fresh collagen. This plumps your skin, reducing the appearance of lines, wrinkles, scars, and other imperfections.

What should I expect during a microneedling treatment?

Dr. Hindi provides a pretreatment consultation to examine your skin and confirm that microneedling is the best procedure. If microneedling is right for you, your provider prepares your skin by cleaning it and applying a serum formulated to address your specific skin concerns.

Then they run the microneedling device over your skin in multiple directions. You may feel your skin get warm, but the procedure shouldn’t be painful. When they’ve finished they pat more serum into your skin.

How should I take care of my skin after a microneedling appointment?

Your skin may be pink after your microneedling treatment, but you can return to your regular activities immediately and don’t need to take any time off to recover. Your skin may be more sensitive to the sun, so make sure to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day.

You may need a series of treatments to achieve your optimal results and occasional touch-up treatments to maintain the effects.
