What Is Microneedling?
Much as the name suggests, microneedling makes use of multiple tiny needles, each fully sterilized for safety. These needles create extremely small puncture wounds at the treatment area, which kickstarts your bodies natural regeneration. Your body responds by boosting collagen and elastin production. Both of these proteins are vital to keeping your skin clear, healthy, and overall younger-looking.
Each treatment session takes only about 10-20 minutes. So you do not need to worry about interruptions to your daily routine. We use a numbing cream to ensure that you stay comfortable throughout the entire process. Once it is done, you can return to your daily life right away. As your body responds to treatment, it will begin producing plenty of new collagen and elastin. As it does, you should see gradual improvements in the weeks after each treatment session.

The first step to see if microneedling is right for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Lombardi. Our double board-certified dermatologist can meet with you personally to evaluate and discuss your situation. He can then match you with your ideal treatment, personalizing every aspect of your treatment plan.
Is There a Recovery Period?
While there is no significant downtime to microneedling, your body does need some time to recover. After a treatment session, you may experience some redness and minor bleeding from the punctures. However, since these are so tiny, any bleeding soon stops. The total time for your body to heal fully can vary, ranging from a couple of days to a week or two.
Part of the recovery process includes minor flaking or peeling of skin at the treatment area. This is entirely normal and part of the healing process. Dr. Lombardi will also provide you with skin care instructions after your session to ensure your skin heals properly.
If you have any questions about microneedling or the recovery process, contact us and we will gladly help. Dr. Lombardi and his staff are by your side every step of the way, working to ensure you have a comfortable and enjoyable experience.
When Can I See Results?
Since microneedling generates results by boosting your body’s natural mechanisms, you should see continued improvement after a session. As your body creates new collagen, you should see your skin clear up and become smoother. Wrinkles should lessen and texture should continue to improve after each treatment. To see your target results, you may need more than one session, with most patients having 2-4 treatments. Each additional treatment builds on the results of the prior one.
While microneedling is not a “quick fix,” it does provide lasting and impressive results. With the right number of sessions and proper skincare afterward, you should see the results you want approach day by day.
