Get a glowing, healthy appearance with BayCare Clinic. Our medical aestheticians offer microneedling- collagen induction therapy services.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure where our skin specialists stimulate the growth of new, collagen-rich tissue.
Microneedling can help combat fine lines and wrinkles, discoloration, uneven skin tone, broken capillaries, and reduced elasticity. It can also help reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks and pores.
Over time, skin loses its elasticity. Microneedling introduces a slight trauma to the skin that encourages the growth of new, firmer and collagen-rich skin tissue.
You should see results within several weeks of your microneedling procedure and continued results up to six months. For optimal results, we recommend a series of treatments spaced out over several months.
No. Before starting, our aestheticians will apply a topical anesthetic. During the procedure, you will feel mild pressure and minimal discomfort.
Procedure times will vary depending on the size of the treatment area and your individualized treatment plan. Typical treatments range in length of 30 to 60 minutes.
Individuals who are in good health and have specific skin concerns make excellent candidates for microneedling. Women who are pregnant, individuals using certain types of acne medications, and those who have open wounds or skin conditions such as psoriasis or eczema should not undergo microneedling procedures.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure, but minor skin irritation and redness is expected immediately following your procedure. To avoid further irritation, we advise you not to apply topical creams or makeup to the treated area for at least 24-hours. Additionally, side effects including minor bleeding, bruising and peeling may occur.
