What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a non-surgical and non-invasive skin rejuvenation technique wherein micro-channels on the skin’s surface activate your body’s natural healing processes. The procedure is simple — a cutting-edge microneedling device makes microscopic punctures on the uppermost layers of the skin to activate collagen production and skin cell regeneration. The results are softer, smoother, and more youthful skin without downtime.

How does Microneedling work?

Microneedling is a non-invasive procedure that activates your body’s natural defense system and healing processes. It’s known as a “collagen induction therapy” because it makes your body produce new collagen fibers. Collagen is a protein that gives your skin its tightness, structure, and fullness. Youthful skin appears firm and voluminous because of the ample presence of collagen fibers. As you grow older, the gradual loss of collagen leads to gaunt, wrinkled, and sagging skin.

Microneedling creates thousands of micro-channels on the skin’s surface to activate your body’s natural healing system. In response, your body increases skin cell turnover to replace the damaged skin tissues and catalyzes collagen production. As such, the damaged skin tissues are replaced by fresh, youthful, and even-textured skin, and the new collagen fibers make your skin appear firm, taut, and youthful. This process also ensures that the results look completely natural with no signs of cosmetic work.

Am I the right candidate for Microneedling?

You’re the right candidate for microneedling in our San Francisco office if you have wrinkled or sagging skin with hyperpigmentation, brown spots, and other skin concerns. Microneedling relies on your body’s natural healing processes, so it’s suitable for everyone, regardless of skin quality or color. However, you should avoid microneedling if you have active skin infections in the treatment areas. Our cosmetic providers will carefully examine your skin quality and review your medical history to determine if you’re the right candidate for microneedling.

How do I move forward with Microneedling?

If you’d like to proceed with microneedling, please schedule a consultation with our cosmetic providers at Bay Area Aesthetic Surgery. Our providers will review your medical history, discuss your cosmetic goals, assess your skin quality, and curate the ideal microneedling treatment plan. They’ll mark the treatment areas on your face to ensure optimal and customized treatments without harsh side effects.

What can I expect during Microneedling?

The cosmetic providers will apply a numbing cream on your skin to ensure a comfortable experience, even though the treatment is virtually painless. The microneedling device will be adjusted to puncture the appropriate depth of your skin to activate your body’s healing processes without causing unnecessary skin damage. The adjusted microneedling device is moved over the treatment areas to create microchannels. Once all the treatment areas are covered, the providers apply a soothing gel over your skin.

What can I expect after Microneedling?

You might experience redness, swelling, and irritation on the treatment areas for a few hours, but you can resume all your daily activities immediately. There aren’t any harsh side effects, long-term complications, or other problems.


What kind of results can I expect?

Microneedling doesn’t produce immediate results because it relies on your body’s collagen production capabilities. You’ll start noticing the results with smoother and more even skin after several weeks as your body starts producing new collagen fibers. The results will continue improving for several months. Most Patients need multiple sessions for optimal results, but your provider will recommend the ideal treatment frequency for you.
