About Microneedling

If over-the-counter skin products are no longer effective, but you don't want to undergo a surgical procedure, learn more about minimally invasive and nonsurgical treatments to rejuvenate your skin such as microneedling. We offer microneedling or collagen induction therapy at TruDerm in Allen, TX to improve the look and feel of your skin. Microneedling uses several fine needles to effectively and safely make micro-injuries in the skin. These micro-injuries prompt the natural production of elastin and collagen, two nutrients that boost the appearance and health of the dermis. Make an appointment for a consultation at TruDerm in Allen, TX to learn more about microneedling and how it can address your unique needs and goals.

Ideal Candidates

You may be a candidate for microneedling treatments if you experience light or medium complexion issues, a decreased dermal elasticity, or a rough skin texture. Collagen induction therapy procedures may also minimize the look of stretch marks, scars, and pores. You should be aware that you will have to wait a while before seeing improvements from your microneedling procedure, because the elastin and collagen require some time to show their impact on the skin; however, you will develop results that look natural and healthy.

Procedure Technique

Microneedling is performed in a private treatment room and usually takes about 30 – 60 minutes. If desired, a local anesthesia or numbing cream can be applied; however, patients generally report little or no discomfort. The areas of skin being addressed will be cleaned before the handpiece is evenly passed across the dermis. Once the microneedling is complete, a treatment such as a rejuvenating topical or a serum with vitamin infusion may be massaged into the treated skin so the nutrients can penetrate deeper into the dermis. A moisturizer selected for your skin type will be spread, plus UV protection because the treated skin will be more sensitive following the procedure.

What to Expect

You can experience mild redness and swelling for about 1 day after microneedling; however, this should fade naturally. It can take around 1 – 2 months as the elastin and collagen supply increases until you notice significant changes in the appearance and health of your complexion. You should schedule around 4 – 6 follow-up sessions performed every 4 – 6 weeks for ideal results and long-lasting skin benefits.
