Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation treatment that uses a group of tiny needles to make pricks in your skin. The needles move into your dermal skin layer to encourage new cellular production, which leads to new collagen and elastin fiber growth. 

The new collagen adds skin support to replace lost volume. Elastin tightens the skin and improves smoothness. Louisiana Aesthetics and Skin Care uses a topical numbing cream that keeps you comfortable during your microneedling treatment. 

What kind of skin problems does microneedling treat?

Microneedling treats a variety of skin problems on the face and body. Its most popular uses include treatment for:

  • Fine lines
  • Facial lines
  • Acne scars
  • Large pores
  • Rough skin texture
  • Sagging skin
  • Stretch marks

If you have any of the above issues due to sun exposure, aging, weight changes, or for some other reason, microneedling at Louisiana Aesthetics and Skin Care could be the ideal treatment for your needs. Many patients choose microneedling as a general restorative treatment for aging. 

What does my skin look like after microneedling?

You’ll have flushed-looking skin for a day or two, and you could have some very mild pinpoint bleeding. This resolves rapidly, and you can expect skin improvement as soon as one to two weeks after your microneedling treatment. Full results can take several months to appear because your body produces new collagen and elastin over time. 

Do I need any downtime following microneedling?

No, microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment with no downtime. The treatment typically takes less than an hour, and you can go back to work or your other planned activities right away. 

How many microneedling treatments do I need?

You’ll see nice results from only one microneedling session, but to get the maximum results Louisiana Aesthetics and Skin Care recommends a series of treatments. Most patients have around three treatments in total, with each session at least 4-6 weeks apart. 

Can I get microneedling if I have fillers or Botox®?

Yes, you can have microneedling treatment if you have fillers or Botox. You might need to wait a few weeks between the two treatments, though. Microneedling works really well with fillers because it can give you the long-lasting collagen support your skin needs after the fillers fade away.

What is Potenza? 

A customizable skin treatment that’s designed specifically for each individual patient. Whether you want to tighten and firm your skin, minimize the common signs of aging or reduce blemishes, you’ll get amazing results after only a few treatments. 

How does it work? 

The Potenza RF microneedling treatment uses ultrafine needles and heat to penetrate the top layer of the skin and trigger the body‘s natural healing process to regenerate new collagen and elastin. Unlike other skin revitalization treatments, these treatments can be performed on all skin types, anywhere on the body and any time of the year. 

When will you see results? 

The elastin and collagen building typically takes place 4 to 6 weeks after treatment, with optimal results usually seen at 12 weeks after the last treatment. The number of passes and penetration to the skin will affect the results seen.

How long is the treatment? 

Treatment times will vary depending on patient, area of the body being treated, penetration depth and number of passes, but most Potenza treatments are performed within one hour.
