Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment which is fast increasing in popularity as it offers you a dramatic rejuvenation of your skin. Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), works to stimulate your body’s natural healing response, which leads to an increase in the production of elastin and collagen. This can help to treat many skin imperfections, such as fine lines and wrinkles, scarring, large pores, stretch marks and sun damage. It can also help to improve the tone and texture of your skin.

What is skin needling and how does it work?
So what exactly is microneedling and how can it help you on your quest to better looking skin? Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure which is carried out using very fine precision needles which are contained on the surface of a micro needle roller. The original microneedling roller pen is known as a Dermapen. This roller is gently moved across the surface of the skin, creating controlled micro injuries. These injuries are what stimulate your skin’s natural healing mechanisms and the increased production of elastin and collagen. Microneedling has also been shown to thicken the surface layer of skin and improve localised blood supply. As the body’s healing process causes damaged cells to be destroyed and replaced, microneedling can help to minimise the appearance of scar tissue and dark pigmentation and to improve the tone and texture of your aging skin.
Microneedling can be used on various different areas of your body, including your:
If you are having specific skin conditions treated, such as, acne or dry skin, then your physician may apply a serum to your skin during your microneedling procedure. This serum works to enhance the effectiveness of the microneedling treatment and is targeted to help with your specific skin issues. Skin serums that may be used include: Hyaluronic acid, Growth factor serum and Platelet-rich plasma (PRP).

Microneedling reviews: Dermapen treatment for tattoo removal
As well as its use for cosmetic enhancements, microneedling can be used to help in removing unwanted tattoos from your skin. Combining microneedling treatment with traditional laser tattoo removal, may cut down on the number of treatments that you require for complete tattoo removal. The micro injuries created by the Dermapen allow better access for the laser treatment, therefore the results when combining the 2 treatments are often more impressive. Microneedling can also help to treat any scar tissue left behind after the removal of a tattoo. A quick internet search provides many positive reviews of microneedling for tattoo removal.
Can Microneedling improve my upper lip wrinkles?
Microneedling can provide amazing results when used on practically any part of the face, however it is particularly effective at diminishing fine lines and wrinkles around the upper lip area. It can also help to reduce any scarring that you may have in this area.
Skincare after Microneedling
Immediately after having microneedling treatment your skin is especially permeable and can therefore be slightly sensitive. It is important to be careful about the skincare products that you use during this time in order to get the most out of your treatment. There are a few self-care measures that can help you to look after your skin during this time:
- Your skin may feel tight and dry after your treatment, so make sure to moisturise well with a good hypoallergenic moisturiser.
- It is essential to avoid exposure to the sun for a couple of weeks after the procedure. After this, make sure to use a good quality sunscreen when exposing your skin to the sun.
- Avoiding the use of make-up for 24 hours after treatment is also advised, to allow your skin a chance to recover.
- Drinking plenty of water will enable you to keep your skin well hydrated.
How much does Microneedling cost?
The cost of microneedling treatment can vary depending on how many sessions you need and what body area you are having treated. Typically prices start at around $399 per session for microneedling and $599 per session for microneedling with PRP.
Our expert doctors here at Evolution MedSpa Boston can talk through whether microneedling is the right treatment choice for you, draw up an individual treatment plan and discuss how much it will cost you.
Can you do Microneedling at home?
You do have the option of buying DIY microneedling kits so that you may carry this out yourself in the comfort of your own home. DIY microneedling may present you with a cheaper option, however at home treatment is much less powerful, meaning that the results you receive are less dramatic and can also be less safe, with an increased risk of side effects or infection. At home treatments will need to be performed multiple times, however professional microneedling is more powerful and so less treatments are needed to see amazing results.
If you are looking to get the very best results, in the safest possible way, then opting for professional microneedling is the way forward. Give our highly experienced doctors a call now, or book an initial consultation online, and they will be able to assess your skin and suggest the most suitable treatment for you.
