Why Celebrities Are Turning to Microneedling

Celebrities are turning to microneedling because it works! According to the American Academy of Dermatology Association (AAD), microneedling delivers “significant, long-lasting results” by working with your body to stimulate collagen production.

It is rumored celebrities like Gwenyth Paltrow, Naomi Watts, and Jennifer Aniston have used microneedling to achieve a healthier, more youthful complexion. But, you do not have to be a star to take advantage of this skin-rejuvenating procedure. Our clinic offers microneedling treatments to clients in Daytona Beach, Port Orange, and across Florida.

Microneedling Triggers Your Body’s Natural Healing Mechanisms

According to the AAD, microneedling uses tiny, thin needles to pierce the skin, creating tiny puncture wounds. As your body heals these wounds, it stimulates new collagen production.

The procedure has become popular among celebrities and anyone wishing to treat an array of skin concerts, including:

  1. Stretch marks

  2. Fine lines

  3. Skin elasticity

  4. Dark spots (hyperpigmentation) and uneven skin tone

  5. Enlarged pores

  6. Scars and burns

Microneedling Is Effective and Minimally Invasive

Celebrities use microneedling for its effectiveness. Microneedling can increase collagen and elastin production. Furthermore, microneedling is minimally invasive and does not require a lengthy recovery. Most patients can return to work and resume their normal routines the day after a microneedling session.

Do At-Home Devices Work As Well?

No. At-home microneedling devices do not work as well as those administered in a clinical setting by a professional. Devices used at home and in non-clinical spas may not penetrate the skin deeply enough to cause bleeding and encourage collagen production. At-home devices can also dull quickly and cause infection or injury.

Both the AAD and FDA recommend you visit a trained professional for microneedling treatments, such as our team of physicians and nurse practitioners.

Most Patients Experience Only Minor Microneedling Side Effects

According to the FDA, most microneedling side effects occur and resolve shortly after treatment. Common complications include:

  1. Burning

  2. Bruising

  3. Discomfort

  4. Redness

  5. Peeling

  6. Itching

  7. Bleeding

  8. Crusting

  9. Dryness

  10. Rough skin

Less common but more severe microneedling risks include swollen lymph nodes, the re-emergence of herpes cold sores, infection, and unwanted changes in skin pigmentation. Additionally, microneedling treatments may not be suitable for those on certain medications, such as blood thinners or isotretinoin (Accutane), and those with some health conditions, including bleeding disorders or uncontrolled diabetes.

Because microneedling involves puncturing the skin, the treatment itself can be uncomfortable. Our practitioners can address any potential pain by administering a topical anesthesia. You can encourage safe and effective post-treatment healing by:

  1. Avoiding sun exposure

  2. Staying hydrated (drinking plenty of water)

  3. Moisturizing the skin

  4. Avoiding cosmetics and harsh products, such as exfoliants and retinol

  5. Avoiding excessive sweating

  6. Using a cooling mask

Microneedling Sessions Are Not Time Consuming

Microneedling is an outpatient treatment. Sessions take about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the patient and their specific skin concerns. To achieve results, patients may need four to six microneedling sessions, with three to eight weeks between each session. Your skin can continue to produce new collage for three to six months post-treatment.

Your first visit to our clinic can likely be your longest, as we can collect a thorough patient history and discuss your treatment during an initial consultation. We want to ensure microneedling is a safe option for you and address any questions or concerns you may have about the procedure.

Is Microneedling Affordable?

You may think a treatment popular with celebrities is too expensive for the average patient. However, microneedling is more affordable than other more invasive surgical procedures for seeking youthful-looking skin.

Our clinic uses a cash payment plan, meaning we do not have to wait for your insurance to approve microneedling treatments. We can work with you to create a payment structure that fits your budget.

We offer microneedling with or without platelet-rich plasma (PRP) stem cell therapy. We also provide a range of services to help you look and feel your best, including:

  1. Hormone replacement therapy for women

  2. Hormone replacement therapy for men

  3. Hair restoration

  4. IV infusion therapy

  5. Weight loss/weight gain treatments

  6. Chiropractic medicine

  7. Acupuncture

  8. Diagnostic testing

  9. Primary and urgent care

  10. Internal/functional medicine
