What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a treatment that involves the use of tiny needles that produce micro-injuries to the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural collagen production – that substance that provides flexibility and strength to skin and body tissue. To speed the healing process. The Microneedling is obtained from drawing a small amount of your own blood, from which the plasma is separated to concentrate healing properties. Microneedling can be used in several different areas of the body, including the face, neck, abdomen, back, hands and legs.
How Microneedling Works
Microneedling is created from a person’s own blood, and is a concentrated blend of plasma cells and specific growth factors. When injected into tissue, it bathes the cells to naturally stimulate the healing process. This advanced technique is often used by professional athletes who need to recover as quickly as possible, to help to reduce recovery time.

Is Microneedling Right for me?
Our microneedling is available to adults who want to improve the appearance of the skin on various body areas. Microeedling is also an effective treatment for reducing the appearance of stretch marks. It is a safe and effective treatment for all skin types. The depth of the microneedling will be adjusted for each individual and the body areas to be treated. This low-risk treatment is appropriate for clients with darker skin types and for clients for whom laser treatments would be inappropriate.
Hair Growth Stimulation
Another effective use is for hair growth. The loss of hair is due to multiple different factors. The most common cause of hair loss or “alopecia” may be effectively treated with micro needling.
The hair follicle from which hair arises depends on the surrounding blood vessels to provide nutrients and growth factors. As one ages these blood vessels become less effective in supplying the hair follicle which then shrinks and stops producing hair.
Studies have shown that improving the blood supply to follicles improves the health and functioning of the follicle. The growth factors produced by stimulate new blood vessel growth which promotes hair growth, as well as increasing follicle and hair size. After two to three treatments, patients report a thicker, fuller head of hair.
What to expect with Microneedling
Before your treatment begins, a numbing gel is applied to the area so the process is comfortable. The appropriate depth for the microneedling will then be selected, based on your skin type and condition. Our clients report that the treatment is not uncomfortable, with a sensation like a light sandpaper moving across your skin. Our microneedling treatments require about one hour to complete, depending upon the size of the body area to be rejuvenated.
After your treatment, you will notice immediate results, which will continue to improve over the next few days and weeks. As your body’s natural collagen production is now stimulated, you should see the texture and quality of your skin continue to improve for up to six months. Recovery time is about one to three days depending on how aggressive the treatment. You will be provided with all the information you need about caring for your skin after microneedling in Austin.
