At DiStefano Medical Spa, our care team knows that when you aren’t happy with the way you look on the outside, it can be hard to feel good on the inside. To help the inner you match the outer you, we’re proud to offer microneedling to our patients in Chattanooga, Tennessee. 

If you’re curious about what conditions respond well to microneedling, read on to learn what you need to know about this cutting-edge skin treatment! 

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a treatment technique that uses extremely tiny needles to give you younger-looking, firmer skin. This minimally invasive procedure uses your body’s natural healing process by creating tiny areas of trauma on your skin. 

Though the tiny needle pricks aren’t big enough to cause bleeding or pain, these micro-wounds send a signal to repair your skin. As the signal is received, your body increases collagen production to create new skin cells.   

At DiStefano Medical Spa, our team uses the revolutionary SkinPen®, the only FDA-cleared microneedling treatment, to revitalize your skin and target your trouble areas and restore your youthful appearance. 

What conditions respond well to microneedling?

Most men and women have more than one skin imperfection they’d like to see disappear. With microneedling from SkinPen, our team can help treat many of those conditions. Your customized microneedling session at DiStefano Medical Spa can minimize the appearance of:

Microneedling can also reduce the appearance of acne scars, other scars, and stretch marks.  

How does microneedling treat so many conditions?

Microneedling can treat so many skin conditions because of its ability to increase your body’s natural collagen production. Although you see skin imperfections, like wrinkles or scars, on the surface of your skin, the changes to your appearance get their start in the deeper layers.  

Collagen and other cells, like elastin, work in the middle layers of your skin to produce the specialized tissues your body needs to create new skin cells. As you get older, your body makes less and less collagen. The result? The top layer is replaced less often, and you lose volume and fullness in your face. 

Microneedling triggers collagen production, making sure your body renews your skin, replacing the old skin with newer, firmer cells. The best part? The more collagen you have in your body, the more your body naturally produces, meaning your skin looks better, longer.

How quickly will I see results from microneedling?

Because microneedling works to repair your skin below the surface instead of simply masking the symptoms, it takes time for results to appear. You should start to see results in a few weeks as new skin grows, and you may notice improvements for 6-12 months after treatment. 

For optimal results, our team generally recommends a series of microneedling treatments. Most patients experience optimal skin results with four to six sessions spaced four to six weeks apart, but your provider works with you to create a customized treatment plan based on your unique needs. 

Am I a candidate for microneedling?

Chances are, if you’re ready to improve your skin, you’re a candidate for microneedling. If your goals include improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, or minor discoloration, microneedling could be the right solution for you. 

Before undergoing treatment, however, it’s important to meet with trained professionals, like the providers at DiStefano Medical Spa, to address your skin goals and review your medical history. 

If you’re ready for your outer appearance to match the inner you, don’t wait! The team at DiStefano Medical Spa addresses your questions or concerns and creates a customized plan
