Frequently Asked Questions regarding our
Collagen Induction Therapy - Microneedling Treatments
How does Microneedling work?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves creating tiny injuries in the skin to stimulate the body’s natural wound healing response, resulting in the production of collagen and elastin. This procedure can be carried out using a dermaroller or a microneedling machine by a qualified medical practitioner. By initiating the wound repair process, microneedling can help to improve skin texture, tone, and radiance, making it a popular anti-aging and skin repair treatment. Microneedling creates a controlled injury to the skin, stimulating collagen production and ultimately helping to improve the overall appearance of the skin by promoting skin renewal and repair. It is a safe and effective treatment option for those looking for a non-surgical solution to improve the quality and appearance of their skin.

Our skilled technicians will then proceed to use either a derma-roller or a microneedling machine. Tiny punctures will be made with the device, creating micro-injuries to treat damaged skin. The procedure might result in minimal bleeding, but it should stop before you leave our facility.
The Microneedling treatment will take about 15 minutes, followed by a cooling mask applied for an additional half-hour. Afterwards, we may apply topical skincare products or a serum, depending on your skin type. Please note that for optimal results, multiple treatments are strongly advised.
At our Eugene Med Spa and Laser Center, we have observed that combining microneedling with serums or other topical products in the treatment helps improve therapy results. By adding elements such as vitamins, Botox® or platelet-rich plasma (PRP), we have witnessed better outcomes of the microneedling treatment. If you are interested in microneedling and want to explore the benefits of combining your treatment with other elements for better results, our team is ready to help. We encourage you to ask us any questions you may have about your treatment options to ensure the best possible outcome for your skin.
Microneedling is a safe and effective skin treatment that offers minimal downtime for patients. After the procedure, redness and swelling are common.
To ensure optimal healing and recovery, it is advisable to refrain from returning to work or other activities for the rest of the day.
It is recommended to apply a moisturizer with ceramides to soothe the skin during this time.
Additionally, for a minimum of 24 hours after the treatment, patients should avoid the sun, exfoliation, alcohol-based toners, the gym, sauna, and hot tub.
By the next day, most patients will notice a return to their normal skin color and be able to apply makeup again. By the third day, the skin will look more radiant, and topical skincare products will be absorbed more deeply for effective results.
