So you’re thinking of trying microneedling treatment but don’t know what to expect from it. It’s likely that the idea of poking your face with tiny needles as a skin treatment sounds bizarre. We almost forgot to mention scary; it sounds more like torture than therapy. But that’s how microneedling treatment works, and it’s probably what you need.
You see, the results of microneedling treatments can do wonders for your facial rejuvenation efforts. First of all, relax, you will not be the first person to do it. You must have been given the recommendation by someone who has undergone the treatment. They made it through, and you will also make it through.
Secondly, how badly do you desire the bold brows, perfect arches, and glowing skin you so dream of? If you really want it, then microneedling is one effective way to get it. With that, let’s delve into what you can expect from microneedling treatments.
Most people usually imagine some ancient secret skin rejuvenating techniques of Asian origins when they hear microneedling. Maybe you had the same idea, or perhaps you still have that idea. No, microneedling is not an ancient secret technique, and it doesn’t have its origins in Asia.
Microneedling is a procedure that involves the use of microneedles on the skin of a patient. Yes, it’s exactly what it sounds like; it involves using a lot of very tiny needles to create punctures in your skin. No, it’s not as scary as it sounds; keep reading to understand better.
We use a motorized surgical instrument with a disposable needle cartridge for the procedure. These motorized instruments usually have 12 needles on their rollers for puncturing the skin. We do not use the same set for two or more people during the procedure for microneedling. This is a standard safety and infection prevention procedure.
The purpose of the needles and the micro-punctures is to stimulate collagen production in the skin. That’s why microneedling is also called collagen induction therapy. The production of collagen and elastin stimulates the skin’s healing process. So the overall purpose of microneedling is to stimulate your skin to heal itself.
Additionally, the punctures allow topical products to get into the skin and work better. Hyaluronic acid and Vitamin C will be able to penetrate deeper into your skin. We will still talk more about the results of microneedling treatment later on. Let’s show you when to choose microneedling treatments in Miami’s

We understand that you’re not sure what to expect from the microneedling treatment. It is alright to be a bit skeptical, but if you have any of the conditions we mentioned above, this may be what you need.
Here’s what to expect when you go in for microneedling treatments in Miami.
Before you schedule a microneedling treatment, you need to consult with a professional. To be on the safe side, let the aesthetician decide if this treatment will benefit you. With the recommendation of an experienced medical aesthetician, you can then prepare for your microneedling treatment.
Before the procedure, you’re not expecting a lot of things. Instead, all you’ll be doing is preparing for microneedling treatments. During this period, you’ll be given instructions on what to do and what not to do. The instructions may vary depending on your condition, but some preparatory instructions are relevant for all microneedling treatments.
Microneedling involves the use of disposable needles. So it is entirely safe, and you stand no risk of contracting any diseases. You will be given topical anesthetic on your skin. This will reduce or eliminate the pain that may accompany the process.
You will probably experience some discomfort, a stinging sensation in the area of the treatment. The level of pain also depends on the area of the treatment. You’ll experience more discomfort in areas with bony prominence or thicker skin, such as the neck. The pain is bearable, and due to the effect of the anesthetic, it will disappear almost immediately after you feel it.
According to the reviews of people who have tried the procedure, the pain is sometimes overhyped. What happens during microneedling treatments is far less painful than what most people make it out to be.
The entire procedure will take between 30-45 minutes, depending on the treatment site. At the end of the procedure, a soothing cream will be applied to the treatment area.
Immediately after the procedure, you’ll probably experience redness, which will subside after a while. Within the first 24 hours of the treatment, your skill will feel dry, tight, swollen, and very sensitive to touch. You want to let it relax. Try to do nothing that can stress your skin within that period.
It takes between 2 to 7 days for the treated skin to flake off and for new tissue to replace it. You may experience a range of discomfort within this period, but it’s just for a little while.
For the next three days after the procedure, it will be in your best interest to be careful with the treated area. Be gentle when cleaning it, use mild cleaning products, and stay off anything acidic. We will provide further post-treatment instructions after you’ve completed your microneedling treatment in Miami.
This is the part that should excite you the most. You know what to expect before, during, and immediately after the procedure. Now let’s talk about what to expect from microneedling treatment. Yes, we are talking about its effects on your skin.
The first effect you will notice is your skin glowing and looking plump. You will start seeing this after the swelling reduces and the redness goes away. You’ll begin to notice a different plumpness to your skin. That’s the effect of the collagen and elastin that are now working actively in your skin.
For the next and most important effect, your skin will begin to heal. The treated skin will fall off, and new tissues will develop in its place. It will take a while, but the results will show soon enough. And when it does, you’ll find your skin has fixed itself and gotten rid of all the blemishes.
Like every other cosmetic procedure that is slightly or fully invasive, microneedling may have some undesirable effects. They’re not life-threatening or very dangerous unless something goes wrong during the procedure.
However, you may still find them annoying.
As results of microneedling, you may experience:
This procedure’s significant risk is that of hyperpigmentation (skin darkening) or hypopigmentation (skin lightening). This is often a result of exposure to the sun too soon after the treatment. This effect should go away within six months of the treatment. You can avoid it by using sunscreen daily for at least four days after the procedure.
Another thing to consider is cost. Most microneedling treatments in Miami cost around $300-$500 per session. The pricing caps off at $700 unless there are additional services plus the treatment.
Having to pay an amount between $200 to $700 may not be expensive to you. However, to some people it is, and it sounds more like a luxury than treatment.
Now you should know what to expect from a microneedling treatment. This will help you decide if you want to go through with it or not. It may be a little bit expensive, and it may be quite uncomfortable, but you’re going to love the results.
