Microneedling Q & A


What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation treatment that restores skin volume and tightness by helping you make new collagen and elastin. Collagen gives your skin volume, and elastin restores your skin’s elasticity. 

If you’re struggling with any of the following issues, microneedling can help. 

  • Age-related facial volume loss
  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne scars
  • Rough skin
  • Uneven skin tone

Microneedling at the Kentucky Skin Cancer Center is a virtually painless process that’s often described as a vibrating tickle. Over time, microneedling can rejuvenate your skin using only your own natural collagen and elastin.

How does a microneedling treatment work?

Before your microneedling treatment begins, your Kentucky Skin Cancer Center provider cleans your skin and applies a topical skin serum like hyaluronic acid. The skin serum helps the Collagen P.I.N. device sweep smoothly across your skin to make thousands of microscopic tunnels each second. 

The microneedling device, the Collagen P.I.N. device, has 36 tiny surgical-grade disposable needle tips. Your Kentucky Skin Cancer Center care provider chooses the ideal needle depth for your skin issues. Thinner areas of the skin, like the forehead, typically need less depth while areas with thicker skin may need the maximum needle depth.

The tiny punctures stimulate your fibroblast cells to synthesize new collagen and elastin growth in your dermis, which gradually fills and tightens skin depressions like lines, wrinkles, acne scars. The skin serum enhances this process to help you get beautiful skin. 

What are the different areas for microneedling treatment?

Microneedling offers amazing results for many different areas, including:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Décolletage
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Abdomen
  • Hands

Microneedling can help with lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, acne scars, and lack of volume nearly anywhere on your body. Just talk to your Kentucky Skin Cancer Center care provider about the areas that concern you the most. 

When will I see results after a microneedling session?

The Collagen P.I.N. device launches your body’s collagen and elastin remodeling process immediately. Many patients notice improved skin tightness and firmness very quickly, and the fibroblasts trigger new collagen growth for up to 12 months after your treatment. 

Collagen P.I.N. microneedling is the best way to grow thicker, tighter, and firmer skin with fewer scars, wrinkles, and stretch marks. Call the Kentucky Skin Cancer Center to find out how microneedling can rejuvenate your skin now.
