What is microneedling?

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a regenerative skin care treatment that uses a dermaroller of small needles to prick the skin. This aesthetic treatment's primary purpose is to boost collagen production and skin tissue for firmer, smoother, more toned skin. It can also help reduce the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, and enlarged pores. Microneedling easily combines with other enhancements like vitamin-infused serums, radiofrequency energy (RF), or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to enhance the results.

How does this skin rejuvenation treatment work?

Med Spa At Seena One is excited to offer this noninvasive skin rejuvenation procedure to Fort Worth, TX patients. Micro-channels are created to safely puncture the dermis or the second layer of the skin. It stimulates facial skin with tiny needles that initiate the production of elastin and collagen. It is a natural way for facial skin to repair itself and get rid of wrinkles and fine lines, reduce acne scars' appearance, and more. It can also be customized to add anti-aging serums, PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy, or other ways to stimulate facial skin for a more youthful, smoother appearance. Microneedling treatments can reduce the appearance of:

  • Minor stretch marks or acne scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Dark spots, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation

Can I wear makeup after my microneedling treatment?

Microneedling helps rebuild the target area to reveal firmer, rejuvenated skin while stimulating the body's natural collagen production. It is safe and effective for adults and all skin types, especially for uneven texture. However, female patients can be surprised to learn that they need to refrain from wearing makeup for at least 24 – 72 hours. This temporary ban applies to tinted makeup, moisturizer, or sunscreen. Pigmented and most makeup products are made from an oil base that can block pores and irritate the skin. It is generally recommended to give your skin time to heal to avoid potential problems for recovery.
