What is Microneedling?
Also referred to as collagen induction therapy, microneedling is an innovative cosmetic treatment that taps into your body’s innate healing mechanism to improve everything from dark spots and sunspots to wrinkles, acne scars, and more.
During a microneedling treatment, your provider uses a small, pen-like device topped with tiny needles to pierce the skin and create hundreds of micro-injuries. This triggers an inflammatory reaction and your body’s healing mechanism, which stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin fibers.
In the weeks following your microneedling treatment, as your body continues to increase collagen and elastin production, you’ll notice an improvement in your skin’s tone, texture, and overall vibrancy.
Microneedling works by stimulating an increased production of collagen and elastin, which are the building blocks of your skin. As we age, the amount of collagen and elastin fibers in our skin naturally decrease, lending to the formation of age signs, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots.
By stimulating collagen and elastin through microneedling, we can naturally and effectively improve the appearance of skin and reduce the visibility of common skin concerns, like wrinkles, skin discoloration, and laxity.
Microneedling may be slightly uncomfortable for some individuals. However, your provider will administer a topical anesthetic before using the microneedling pen. This helps to numb the skin and reduce any discomfort you may experience during the treatment.
Microneedling is very safe when administered by a trained professional. At Barrett & Geiss, our providers have years of experience and deeply understand how to perform microneedling treatments for exceptional results. You can rest assured knowing you’re in good hands when you trust Barrett & Geiss for your microneedling treatments in Lancaster and Granville, Ohio.

Microneedling is an effective exfoliation technique, which can certainly help and improve your acne breakouts. Additionally, microneedling has been shown to improve acne scars.
However, it is often not recommended for individuals with active acne breakouts and lesions, as the treatment may cause further irritation. We recommend you consult with your provider to learn more which acne treatment is right for you.
How long microneedling results last varies from patient to patient. Microneedling results typically peak two to three months after the treatment as the skin continues to boost collagen and elastin production. Depending on the severity of your skin concerns, your provider may recommend several microneedling treatments to achieve the desired results.
Additionally, your results after the treatment depend on how well you take care of your skin (wearing sunscreen, avoiding excessive UV exposure, etc.). To maintain your microneedling results, we generally recommend regular follow-up treatments.
