SkinPen Microneedling Q & A
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a treatment that stimulates skin and tissue strengthening. Also known as collagen induction therapy, the treatment works by creating microscopic injuries in your skin’s surface that your body is quick to heal. Your skin makes new collagen-rich tissue to repair the tiny injuries.
During a microneedling treatment, a member of the Qvita Health and Wellness team uses a handheld tool or roller with a series of tiny needles at the tip to prick your skin.
They may give you a topical anesthetic beforehand so you don’t feel the needles as they enter your skin. Following the treatment, they apply a soothing serum to calm any irritation.
Within a couple weeks of your treatment, you’ll find that your skin displays a renewed glow with fewer blemishes and wrinkles.
What are the benefits of microneedling?
Microneedling is a great minimally invasive treatment option for your face, your body, or both. The new collagen growth helps complete the healing of old scars and blemishes while making your skin tighter, firmer, and stronger. After a treatment, you’ll see fewer:
- Stretch marks
- Scars from injuries
- Scars from surgery
- Scars from acne
- Gaping pores
- Fine lines
- Age spots
The overall effect is even more striking than individual improvements. When viewing your skin just weeks after your treatment, you’ll find that it’s smoother, more youthful, and brighter. This can make a big difference for skin in need of a pick-me-up.

What is recovery like after microneedling?
You can expect to wait several days for your skin to recover after your microneedling treatment, but many patients agree that this period is very tolerable.
In fact, you can get back to working, wearing makeup, and using sunscreen just 24 hours after your procedure. If you feel comfortable enough, you don’t need to reserve this time for rest and recovery at all.
How long do the results of microneedling last?
Everyone’s skin is different, so there’s no way to accurately predict how long your skin will stay in its improved state. It all depends on your age, your starting degree of skin imperfection, and how well you care for your skin at home.
However, you can work with your provider at Qvita Health and Wellness to add microneedling to a regular treatment regimen to consistently enjoy improvements.
