microneedling IN TARPON SPRINGS

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that’s used to treat skin concerns via collagen production. Also known as collagen induction therapy, this treatment may help those looking to reduce the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks.

It’s also used in certain anti-aging procedures, such as eyelid surgery and sun spots. 

You may be an ideal candidate for this procedure if you’re in good health and have certain skin concerns that haven’t responded to home treatments or other types of dermatologic procedures, such as peels.

This may also be a final step before considering cosmetic surgery for anti-aging and other concerns. Learn more about microneedling and talk to your dermatologist to see if this is the right option for your skin.

microneedling Cost

Microneedling is considered a cosmetic procedure, so it usually isn’t covered by insurance. This means that all payments are made out of pocket. Your doctor may agree to a payment plan to help spread out the expense, but this varies by clinic.

It’s important to note that these are averages only. The precise cost of microneedling can depend on:

  • the extent of your treatment
  • your provider
  • where you live
  • how many follow-up treatments you need
  • whether you need to take off work

microneedling FAQ

HOW DOES MICRONEEDLING WORK?

The device slides along the skin and penetrates upper layers of the skin to a depth of up to 2mm to create tiny needle wounds. This signals the body to respond by producing collagen and elastin fibers. As a result, the skin becomes fuller, thus reducing the appearance of scars, lines, and wrinkles.

WHAT CONDITIONS DOES MICRONEEDLING TREAT?

Some of the conditions that medical microneedling is known to improve include: mild to moderate acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, skin texture and pore size, and stretch marks

WHAT WILL I LOOK LIKE AFTER THE TREATMENT?

Most people will notice redness and mild swelling similar to slight sunburn for 24-48 hours and there may be slight pinpoint bleeding and/or bruising. Skin will be noticeably smoother and more radiant within a week or two. Full results will take a few months to appear.

WHAT IS THE DOWN TIME AFTER MICRONEEDLING?

Inflammation of the skin is very temporary and reduces greatly within a few hours. It may remain slightly pink for up to 48 hours after treatment. Using hyaluronic acid after the procedure can help reduce inflammation, and sunscreen can be used to protect the skin. Makeup use should be limited to mineral makeup.
