Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a nonsurgical treatment that creates small, controlled injuries in your skin. These micro-wounds help the thinning and broken down skin create new collagen bridges to repair the injured areas. Your skin’s natural healing response makes it noticeably tighter and more youthful.

What issues benefit from microneedling?

Microneedling is an effective treatment for restoring the texture and elasticity of your skin on your face and neck, as well as your hands, legs, chest, and abdomen. A number of common skin issues can see great improvement after a microneedling treatment, including:

  • Fine lines
  • Lax skin
  • Diminished skin texture or tone
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Sun spots

Microneedling at Z-ROC Dermatology can help you restore your skin to its youthful appearance.

What can I expect during a microneedling treatment?

At Z-ROC Dermatology, Dr. Zarraga and Dr. Wongkittiroch use a handheld device, or microneedling pen, to create tiny channels in your skin. The stimulates your body’s natural healing properties, promoting the production of new collagen and elastin, which provide added structure and fullness to your skin.

For optimal results, the physicians at Z-ROC Dermatology often combine microneedling with regenerative platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. PRP is a solution created from your own blood that contains a high concentration of platelets that carry growth factor proteins and boost the healing process.

What are the benefits of microneedling?

Microneedling is a safe, cost-effective solution to the effects of aging that offers dramatic results, and those results are combined with the addition of PRP therapy and other complementary treatments. Microneedling carries a much lower risk of side effects than more invasive treatments, virtually eliminating the risk of hyperpigmentation or post-procedure infections.

The downtime is also much shorter with microneedling than you would experience after a more invasive treatment, but you get many of the same results.
