Microneedling Q & A

Evolution MedSpa Boston

What is microneedling?

A minimally invasive procedure, microneedling stimulates your body’s natural healing response, leading to an increase in collagen and elastin production. At Evolution MedSpa Boston, your physician uses tiny, hair-thin needles to create micro-injuries across the surface of your skin.

Because of these injuries, your body begins its healing process, which naturally renews skin and smooths its texture. Because microneedling leads to an increase in collagen and elastin, skin becomes fuller, and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is reduced.

Often called collagen induction therapy (CIT), microneedling can be used on your:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Arms
  • Hands

What can microneedling treat?

When you see Drs. Cappiello at Evolution MedSpa Boston, they may recommend microneedling for total skin rejuvenation and to treat a variety of ailments, including:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Traumatic scars
  • Loose skin
  • Stretch marks
  • Skin texture
  • Dark pigmentation
  • Melasma
  • Reduce pore size

How does microneedling work?

Drs. Cappiello use a state-of-the-art device that creates micro-injuries with tiny microneedles. These needles activate your body’s healing process, including collagen and elastin production which volumizes your skin, making fine lines and wrinkles less noticeable.

As part of this healing process, damaged cells are attacked and replaced, reducing the appearance of scars, dark pigmentation, and other facial flaws. Skin’s texture and tone are also improved.

Depending on your specific skin conditions, Drs. Cappiello may apply a skin serum during your microneedling procedure. This enhances treatment effectiveness and gives you added benefits for specific issues, such as acne or dry skin. Common serums include:

  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Growth factor serum
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

How many microneedling treatments do you need?

Your skin issues and their severity determine the number of microneedling treatments Drs. Cappiello recommend. In most cases, the physicians at Evolutions MedSpa Boston recommend 3-6 treatments, with at least four weeks in between each session.

Some conditions, such as acne scarring, may require more treatments.

Initial results are noticeable around four weeks, while you reach maximum benefit between 3-4 months.
