Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a treatment in which a dermaroller, a small roller with many tiny needles, creates a number of microscopic punctures in your skin. The needles spur your dermal skin layer into making fresh collagen. The new collagen develops over the upcoming months and can continue for some time afterward. Collagen can fill wrinkles and firm your skin. 

Microneedling is often combined with other treatments because the small holes in the skin create a direct route to the skin’s dermal layer. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and microneedling are a great combination if you want major skin renewal. 

MiKO Med Spa Medical Director Dr. Michael K. Obeng personally designed the microneedling protocols and chose the team members who specialize in this advanced aesthetic procedure.

What is microneedling with PRP treatment?

PRP is the platelets from your blood. Your blood platelets help you regenerate dormant cells and also stimulate new collagen and skin cell growth. But, your blood has only around 10% of these platelets normally. 

Your MiKO Med Spa care provider takes a small quantity of blood from your vein and then uses a centrifuge to concentrate PRP. The PRP has up to 10 times as many platelets as ordinary blood, which means it’s ideally suited for rejuvenating treatments. 

After microneedling treatment, your MiKO Med Spa provider delivers the PRP into the punctures, so it can get directly to your dermis to help you get the results you want, fast. The PRP helps you make even more collagen for ideal results.

When will I see results following microneedling?

You might notice improved tightness within the first days or weeks, but you notice the true results over several months as your new collagen develops. 

Does microneedling hurt?

Your MiKO Med Spa aesthetics care specialist applies a numbing cream before your microneedling treatment. You’re unlikely to experience any pain, but you might feel some pressure as the roller works on your face. Most patients rate it as a very easily tolerated treatment that’s well worth the fantastic results!

Am I a good candidate for microneedling?

If you have any of the skin concerns below, microneedling, either alone or in combo with PRP, could be a great fit for you. 

  • Age-related facial volume loss
  • Fine lines
  • Deep facial folds
  • Poor skin texture
  • Poor skin tone
  • Acne scars

Many patients choose microneedling because it’s a great rejuvenating treatment with no downtime. Although your skin is red after the treatment, you can generally use camouflage makeup with no problem if you wish.
