Microneedling

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling creates tiny channels that activate your body’s natural healing process, while minimizing damage to cells. As we age, the production of collagen and elastin naturally decreases, resulting in wrinkles, loose skin, and other signs of aging. Microneedling stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin, promoting smoother and firmer skin. This highly effective treatment reduces signs of aging and enhances the appearance of your skin. It can also help minimize stretch marks on your body.

At Trouvaille Med Spa, we offer Vivace and Morpheus 8. Both treatments deliver the rejuvenating benefits of microneedling, however Morpheus 8 can be used on the body and the face to penetrate deeper into the layers of the skin, making it suitable for more advanced skin tightening and rejuvenation. Vivace can only be done on the face.

Vivace and Morpheus 8 both have their advantages and may be used separately or in combination, depending on the specific concerns and goals of the patient. One of our aestheticians will gladly help determine which treatment is best suited for your unique needs.

What to Expect with a Microneedling Appointment?

Everyone’s skin is different. Therefore, procedure requirements and results will vary. A Trouvaille Med Spa skin specialist will review with you the goals or achievements you would like to obtain to develop an individual treatment plan for you. We recommend multiple sessions to achieve optimal microneedling results, but you may notice changes after one week. If you have uneven skin tones or fine lines, you may see results after just one procedure. Patients looking to lessen the appearance of acne scars may require several procedures.

After a microneedling treatment, it will feel something like a mild sunburn with some redness, tenderness and possible swelling. There is no real downtime after the procedure. You will be able to return to normal activities immediately and after 24 hours, you can cover any mild side effects with make-up.

FAQs for Microneedling

How does microneedling work?

Microneedling creates hundreds to thousands of “micro” skin punctures per second to stimulate the skin’s natural wound healing process – inflammation, proliferation, and remodeling – to prompt tissue remodeling without causing scar tissue formation. Most patients can return to normal activities within 24 hours.

Is microneedling painful?

Prior to the treatment, numbing cream can be applied to minimize pain that is felt during the procedure.

How long does a microneedling procedure take?

Microneedling procedures are brief. This procedure is gentler than most alternatives, so it may take more than one session to achieve optimal results. Results may become visible after one procedure. It is recommended that appointments are scheduled about a month apart, to give the skin time to rest and heal in between.

What is the downtime after a microneedling appointment?

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.

Can microneedling help with stretch marks or cellulite?

Microneedling can improve the appearance of stretch marks by stimulating collagen production and promoting skin renewal. While it may also benefit cellulite to some extent, results can vary, and multiple sessions may be needed for noticeable improvement.

Can microneedling be combined with other skincare treatments or products?

Microneedling can be combined with other skincare treatments or products, such as serums or growth factors, to enhance results. However, it’s essential to follow your provider’s recommendations for compatibility and timing.

Is it safe to use microneedling on tattooed skin?

Microneedling can be performed on tattooed skin, but it may cause slight fading of the tattoo due to the stimulation of skin renewal. If preserving the tattoo’s vibrancy is important, consult with a professional before treatment.

Can microneedling be combined with exosomes?

Yes, combining microneedling with exosomes can enhance the treatment’s results. Exosomes are tiny vesicles that contain growth factors and signaling molecules, which can further stimulate collagen production and skin rejuvenation when applied after microneedling.

How does microneedling affect the absorption of skincare products?

Microneedling creates micro-channels in the skin, significantly increasing the absorption and efficacy of topical skincare products applied immediately after the procedure. This can enhance the benefits of ingredients like hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and peptides.
