Unveiling a radiant complexion doesn’t always require invasive treatments. Microneedling, a non-surgical method, can transform your skin texture and potentially give you a more refined look.
At Bayside Medspa in Norfolk, VA, we are founded on ethical principles and consistently aim to provide patient-centric care. Engaging in innovative techniques and education, we’re here to help you understand microneedling and its potential benefits for your skin. Let’s explore how this treatment can make a difference in revitalizing your complexion.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a dermatological technique where tiny, sterile needles create controlled punctures on the skin’s surface. These minuscule microchannels stimulate the body’s natural healing processes, particularly collagen and elastin production. As a result, the skin may appear rejuvenated, with improvement in texture and tone. This method harnesses the body’s own regenerative abilities to promote fresher, more refined skin.
How Can Microneedling Transform Your Skin?
Reduction in the Appearance of Pores
One of the notable microneedling benefits is its ability to visibly reduce pore size. While the pores themselves can’t be decreased in size, the natural collagen boost from the treatment can cause the skin around the pores to tighten, making them diminish in appearance.
Improved Skin Texture
Microneedling can also enhance overall skin texture, whether you are struggling with skin that is rough and leathery or beginning to thin. The stimulated collagen and elastin work in tandem to renew and refresh the skin’s outer layer, making skin softer and more elastic with a more uniform and refined look.
Reduction in Hyperpigmentation
One of the best microneedling results can be a reduction in hyperpigmentation. By promoting rapid skin turnover, microneedling can assist in shedding the pigmented skin layers more swiftly. This accelerated renewal can help even out skin tone and diminish dark spots or discolorations.
Improvement in Fine Lines and Wrinkles
With age, fine lines and wrinkles become more prominent. Microneedling targets these concerns by bolstering the skin’s natural regeneration capabilities. The increase in collagen and elastin can help rejuvenate the deeper layers of skin, making these age-related signs less noticeable.
Healing of Acne Scars or Other Types of Scarring
For those seeking a solution for scarring, microneedling for acne scars can help make your skin smooth and even again. By creating controlled microchannels, the skin’s healing response is activated, which can lead to the gradual reduction and smoothing of scars over time as brand-new collagen is formed in the area.
Enhancement of Topical Products
One microneedling benefit is its potential to boost the efficacy of skincare products. After treatment, the skin can become more receptive, allowing topical products to penetrate deeper. This can amplify their effects, ensuring you get the most from your skincare regimen.
What Are the Benefits of Adding PRP to Your Microneedling Treatment?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is derived from a person’s blood. After drawing a small blood sample, it’s processed in a centrifuge to isolate the platelet-rich portion, which is full of growth factors and proteins that are essential for wound healing.
Combining microneedling with PRP enhances the skin’s healing. The growth factors in PRP can boost tissue repair and collagen production, leading to improved skin texture and elasticity. This combination taps into the body’s natural healing mechanisms, offering a potent approach to skin revitalization.

What to Expect From Our Microneedling Treatments
Discussing Medical History and Goals
Before initiating any microneedling treatment, we prioritize understanding you. We’ll sit down and discuss your medical history, any skin concerns, and your desired outcomes. This helps ensure that the microneedling process aligns perfectly with your individual needs and health profile.
Obtaining the PRP From Your Blood
If you have scheduled a PRP microneedling session, we will begin by using your blood to derive the platelet-rich plasma. We’ll draw a small sample of your blood and process it in a centrifuge to extract the PRP. Only a small amount of blood is needed, so the process is fast and easy.
Treating Your Skin With Microneedling
With precision and care, we’ll start the microneedling process. You may feel some scratching or a sandpaper sensation as the needles puncture your skin at precise depths. Treatment times can be different depending on the size of the area being treated, but it is usually less than an hour.
Applying the PRP
After the microneedling portion of the treatment, the PRP is applied to your skin. Given the skin’s freshly treated state from microneedling, it readily absorbs the PRP, further enhancing the regenerative benefits and promoting an accelerated healing process.
Giving You Post-Treatment Care Instructions
After the session, we want you to know how to care for your rejuvenated skin to maximize microneedling results. We’ll provide comprehensive post-treatment guidelines so your skin remains healthy and the benefits are long-lasting.
Scheduling Maintenance Appointments
To maintain and extend the benefits of your microneedling treatment, periodic maintenance appointments can be helpful. We’ll discuss an ideal schedule with you to make sure your skin continues to receive the care and attention it deserves.
