Microneedling in Portland
Microneedling involves using fine needles that activate the body’s natural healing mechanisms, producing elastin and collagen, essential for achieving firm and elastic skin. Microneedling treatments effectively address various concerns, from fine lines, wrinkles, skin blemishes, and acne scars to enlarged pores and uneven skin tone. Tailored to suit multiple skin types and issues, microneedling 
is a testament to the power of our body’s regenerative abilities, bringing about profound changes from within.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling Portland, OR is a minimally invasive treatment that uses tiny needles to trigger elastin and collagen production. Also known as collagen induction therapy, it is lauded for its ability to transform and revitalize the skin, offering a solution to many skin concerns.
The magic of microneedling lies in stimulating the body’s natural healing response. When the skin’s surface is punctured, it triggers a response for collagen and elastin production – the fundamental building blocks of smooth, firm skin. This natural response not only aids in repairing the micro-injuries caused by the needles but also rejuvenates the skin from within. At Ortho-Rejuv, we help you improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of neck and facial wrinkles, and stimulate hair growth with FDA-approved SkinPen®.

Recovery After Microneedling Treatment

In the immediate aftermath of a microneedling treatment, it’s common 
to experience redness and sensitivity akin to a mild sunburn, which can last from a few hours to a couple of days, depending on individual skin sensitivity and treatment intensity. Swelling and a feeling of tightness in the treated area are normal and typically diminish within 24 to 48 hours. During the first 24 hours, it’s crucial to use gentle skincare products, avoid active ingredients 
like retinoids or acids that might irritate the skin, and refrain from applying makeup to prevent clogging the microchannels.
In the first week post-treatment, skin protection from sun exposure is essential; use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. Keeping the skin well-hydrated with fragrance-free, non-comedogenic moisturizers is vital, and avoiding exfoliating products and tools allows the skin to shed any dead cells naturally.

Cost of Microneedling Treatment

On average, a single microneedling session ranges from $200 to $700, but these prices can vary significantly. Microneedling costs can fluctuate based on several factors, including the clinic’s location, the practitioner’s expertise, the treatment area’s size, the number of sessions required, and the type of microneedling device used. At Ortho-Rejuv, we understand that cost is a consideration, and we offer various financing options to accommodate our patients’ needs. While cost is a factor, it’s equally essential to prioritize the quality of the microneedling procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

A typical microneedling session usually takes about 30 to 60 minutes. This duration can vary depending on the size of the area being treated and the specific concerns being addressed.
Microneedling is generally not considered to be very painful. Most patients report only mild discomfort. A topical numbing cream is commonly applied to the treatment area before the microneedling procedure to enhance comfort.

The journey to achieving optimal results with microneedling often involves multiple treatments, each tailored to individual skin concerns and goals.

To achieve a refreshed and improved skin texture, particularly for addressing concerns like dullness, it’s often recommended to undergo a series of three to four microneedling treatment sessions, with each session spaced approximately 4 to 6 weeks apart.

When addressing more specific issues like stretch marks, a slightly longer course of treatment is often necessary, with 4 to 6 sessions recommended for noticeable improvement.

Deep scars and acne scarring may require six or more sessions to achieve significant results.

Each session contributes to the gradual and cumulative process of skin repair and rejuvenation, with the spacing between treatments allowing the skin to heal and respond optimally. This personalized approach ensures that each microneedling patient receives an effective and appropriate treatment plan for their specific skin needs, whether it’s enhancing overall skin brightness or targeting more stubborn concerns like stretch marks or deep scars.

The downtime after microneedling or collagen induction therapy is minimal. Patients may experience redness and mild swelling a few days post-treatment, similar to a mild sunburn. Most people can return to their normal activities within a day.

After microneedling, it’s essential to:

  • Apply sunscreen regularly and avoid direct sun exposure.
  • Use gentle skincare products and avoid active ingredients like retinoids and acids for a short period.
  • To prevent microchannel blockage, avoiding makeup for at least 24 hours after treatment is advisable.
  • Stay hydrated and steer clear of strenuous activities for a few days.
  • Do not exfoliate the skin or use abrasive products until the skin has fully healed.
