Is MicroNeedling Safe? By Imagine Body Sculpting Scottsdale. Many people look to skincare treatments and procedures to help with acne scars, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and improve the appearance of stretch marks. Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a cosmetic procedure used to rejuvenate the skin.

Patients commonly ask, is Microneedling safe? The short answer is, yes, when performed by a trained medical professional (either a dermatologist or an aesthetician).


What can Microneedling do for the skin?

Is MicroNeedling Safe?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that has very little to no downtime. A device with fine needles creates tiny punctures in the top layers of the skin, stimulating cellular renewal and collagen production.

After having Microneedling done, patients can also see an increased absorption of skincare products, as well as a reduction in fine lines, scarring, and dark spots.

How quickly can I see results?

The way your skin responds to treatment will vary. Some people will see results after the first or second treatment, while others may need four to six sessions. Maintenance follow ups might also be necessary to keep the progress up as well as prevent further damage.

In between, your doctor will guide you on what your skincare regimen should look like, including using other types of skin resurfacing products, while receiving Microneedling treatments.

Results can vary depending on a few different factors (the results can range from subtle improvement to dramatic change):

  • Skin issues
  • The severity of issues
  • Age and 
  • Current condition of skin
  • Treatment is done by a professional
  • Number of treatments done 
  • Skincare regime at home 


Is Microneedling painful?

When performed by a professional, there should be zero to minimal pain, side effects, or downtime from Microneedling treatments, though some may experience minor skin irritation immediately after. Your doctor or aesthetician should always advise you on the proper after-care procedure for your skin to minimize irritation and facilitate the best results.

During your Microneedling treatment from Imagine Body, your technician will take every step possible to ensure your safety and comfort. We start with a topical numbing cream before the procedure. While individual experiences may vary, our patients claim the treatment is fast, convenient, and virtually pain-free. (Survey completed by those who have had one or more sessions)


Who makes a good candidate for Microneedling?

As we stated above Microneedling is a safe treatment. However, adults who get the procedure should be in good health (free from any infections, a fever, or a rash) and not pregnant or nursing.

Those suffering from lupus or vitiligo can have unwanted side effects or abrasions. You must discuss your health background with your doctor before starting any Microneedling sessions.
