Imperfections in our skin can be a great source of embarrassment, but aging is inevitable, and acne scars can be difficult to treat.
Fortunately, microneedling can treat a variety of skin imperfections and help boost your confidence.
Dr. Bruce Hermann in Denton, TX, can provide microneedling to help you produce collagen, resulting in rejuvenated skin.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling, also known as "collagen induction therapy," is a skin treatment that involves pricking the skin with sterilized needles. These micro-injuries stimulate your body's natural healing process and cause it to produce more collagen and elastin. The result is younger, healthier-looking skin!
What Do Microneedling Devices Treat?
Most patients receive microneedling to target skin concerns on their face, but it can be done on other parts of the body, like the stomach and thighs, as well. Microneedling treats a variety of skin problems, such as:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Age spots
- Acne scars
- Body scars
- Large pores
- Stretch marks
- Sun damage

What Does the Microneedling Treatment Involve?
Minimal bleeding is normal during microneedling treatment.
After your treatment, your skin will appear flushed and red for up to 48 hours. Swelling and peeling are also normal following your treatment as your old cells slough off. Be sure to follow any aftercare instructions that Dr. Hermann may have given you based on your skin type.
After your skin has healed for 24 hours, use a physical (mineral) sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher to protect your sensitive skin from sunlight throughout the day. You can also start to use gentle cleansers and moisturizers at this time.
There are some things you should avoid to protect your skin and keep it clean as it heals from the procedure:
- Heavily scented products
- Powered cleansing brushes
- Sweating heavily for 72 hours following your treatment
- Using makeup for two to three days following your treatment
- Using dirty makeup brushes
- Exfoliating products and retinol
- Sun exposure, if possible
- Swimming pools, saunas, and spas

When Can I Expect to See Results?
Your skin may look plumper and tighter right after your treatment, but your body still needs time to heal itself before you see real results. It can take about six to eight weeks for the effects of increased collagen to become apparent.
Why Should I Get a Professional Treatment When Dermarollers Are Cheap?
Doctors advise against using at-home dermarollers because they can create more skin problems. Bacteria can grow on an unsterilized dermaroller and lead to skin infections and breakouts. Improper techniques can also damage your skin, leading to permanent scarring.
If you use an at-home dermaroller, you won't see the same results you would receive if you scheduled a professional microneedling appointment with Dr. Hermann. In-office microneedling uses needles that can penetrate deeper into your skin than dermarollers, providing you with better results in a safe and controlled environment.
Who Is Not a Candidate for Microneedling?
Microneedling is a great treatment for people who don't qualify for other treatments or who have tried professional chemical peels and laser resurfacing treatments with little success.
However, some conditions may prevent you from being a candidate:
- Active acne
- Skin tags or raised moles
- Keloids or raised scars
- Skin cancer
- Wound healing problems
If you have one of these conditions, you may still be a viable candidate for microneedling if you're able to resolve it. Otherwise, microneedling may worsen your condition.
