Microneedling Q&A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling, also referred to as collagen induction therapy, is an aesthetic procedure that uses tiny sterile needles inserted into the skin at varying depths to make small tears in aging skin, speed up natural healing, and stimulate new cell growth. 

Wistl Skin uses advanced protocols and techniques to treat an array of skin imperfections without surgery or significant downtime. The practice also offers radiofrequency microneedling (RF microneedling), emitting radiofrequency energy into targeted tissues with microneedling to further stimulate new cell growth. 

Wistl Skin has a board-certified plastic surgeon on staff and a highly trained master esthetician with more than 20 years of experience. 

The cost of microneedling at Wistl Skin is $395 and requires an initial consultation.

What is microneedling used for?

Safe and effective microneedling at Wistl Skin offers the following anti-aging benefits:

  • Skin restoration
  • Fewer lines and wrinkles
  • Smaller pores
  • Reductions in stretch marks
  • Diminished acne scarring
  • Less hyperpigmentation
  • Tighter, smoother, gorgeous skin
  • More collagen and elastin production
  • Younger-looking appearance

There is minimal to no downtime needed after undergoing microneedling, so it’s a convenient cosmetic option that offers superior, long-lasting results. It’s a highly sought-after treatment that can be used in place of laser procedures. 

Is microneedling right for me?

To determine if you’re a candidate for microneedling at Wistl Skin, your provider discusses your beauty goals and treatment preferences, reviews your medical history, and examines your skin in areas that concern you. They tailor each aesthetic treatment to match your desired results and exceed any expectations.

What can I expect during microneedling?

Before you undergo microneedling, your provider cleans your skin and numbs the treatment area to make sure microneedling feels comfortable. They apply a handheld device to the treatment area to insert tiny needles beneath your skin’s surface, along with radiofrequency energy in some cases. 

Afterward, they might apply a topical ointment to stimulate healing. Each treatment session typically lasts about 30-60 minutes.

What happens after microneedling?

After microneedling, you can resume a normal daily routine but expect temporary redness, swelling, and tenderness. Ice the treated areas to reduce any swelling. Your Wistl Skin provider may recommend a series of microneedling treatments to ensure outstanding, long-lasting results. They may also suggest RF microneedling.
