What is Microneedling?
When skin care products no longer provide effective results, but you want to avoid surgery, we recommend learning more about microneedling. At Ageless Grace in Murrieta, CA, our team is pleased to offer this innovative, nonsurgical treatment. Microneedling uses multiple fine-gauge needles to safely make micro-injuries in the skin, which encourages the production of collagen and elastin. These two essential skin nutrients enhance your complexion and improve your skin's health. Often combined with other treatments, like platelet-rich plasma (PRP), microneedling can help reduce stretch marks, scars, and pores. Please schedule a complimentary virtual or in-person consultation to learn more about the benefits of microneedling and receive a personalized treatment plan.

What to Expect With Microneedling
If you experience a decrease in skin laxity, rough skin texture, large pores, acne scars, or stretch marks, microneedling can help reduce the appearance of these skin issues. Because this treatment creates micro-injures to the skin, you must be willing to wait before seeing results. However, after the elastin and collagen nutrients increase, you should see a healthier, smoother-looking complexion. At your consultation, we will determine if this treatment is right for you and design a customized treatment plan based on your cosmetic goals.
Taking about 30 – 60 minutes to complete, we start by cleaning your skin and if needed, applying a numbing cream. Next, the specialized handpiece is rolled over the treatment area while making micro-injuries. To enhance your results, we can apply platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or a vitamin-infused serum. These nutrient-rich serums soak deep into the skin for more luminous results. After your treatment, a member of our team will wash your skin and apply a moisturizer with SPF. At first, you may have some slight swelling and redness; however, these symptoms will subside in a few days. Overall, it can take 1 – 2 months before seeing your final results. For the best outcomes and long-lasting skin benefits, our team recommends 4 – 6 maintenance treatments every 4 – 6 weeks.
How much does microneedling cost?
In your consultation, one of our experienced team members will analyze your skin and then develop your custom treatment plan. From there, they will be able to discuss your costs and what to expect during the procedure. Ageless Grace often offers specials on treatment packages, so be sure to ask about our current deals during your consultation.
What exactly is microneedling?
Collagen induction therapy or microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment to rejuvenate your skin. A natural fibrous protein, collagen helps keep your skin smooth, supple, and tight. As you get older, your natural supply of collagen is depleted, and your skin gets thin and loses elasticity. Microneedling creates small wounds in your skin. These micro-injuries prompt your skin to generate new skin cell growth and increase collagen production. After a short recovery period, your complexion looks brighter, firmer, and healthier.
Can I combine other treatments with microneedling?
In the process of microneedling, channels are made in your skin that help other treatments to reach the lower layers. That's why microneedling is frequently combined with other skin treatments. During your consultation, we can talk about what treatments would enhance your microneedling and which best fit your skin goals.
How many treatments are recommended for optimal results?
Usually, patients get 3 – 6 microneedling treatments to see their best results. However, the number of treatments you need will vary based on your skin's condition and your goals. Microneedling can be performed every 4 – 6 weeks. During your initial consultation, we can estimate the number of sessions you might want after assessing your skin and listening to your goals. Once you have reached your goal, we recommend scheduling maintenance treatments about twice a year.
Is microneedling safe for everyone?
In general, microneedling is appropriate for all skin tones and types. Since the skin injuries created are so small, there are usually no side effects afterward. Microneedling can be applied to most areas of skin, including the arms, face, neck, chest, and legs. Microneedling is not recommended if you have been on Accutane within the last 2 – 3 months, as well as if you have an open wound, active skin infection, or herpes simplex. In addition, you may not be a candidate for microneedling if you are pregnant, nursing, or getting radiation therapy.
