What Conditions Does Microneedling Treat?


Microneedling has been used since about 2006, but more people are discovering just how effective it is for treating a number of common skin problems. It’s completely natural, and triggers your own body to correct skin issues.

Sometimes called collagen induction therapy, microneedling creates microscopic wounds that spur your body to produce collagen and elastin. The result is smoother, tighter skin that has the dewy glow you’re looking for.

How microneedling works

At Lasercare Skin Clinic, we use a device called SkinPen® to perform microneedling, instead of a manual device or a dermaroller. SkinPen allows for extreme precision, can be tailored to your needs, and gives Dr. Sanderson complete control.

SkinPen looks like a pen for writing, but instead of ink coming out of the tip there are 12 extremely small needles. The length of the needles can be adjusted, depending on your needs.

Dr. Sanderson uses the SkinPen to make punctures so small you can’t see them. These tiny wounds stimulate a cascade of events that result in firmer, smoother skin.

Here are a few of the conditions we often use microneedling to correct.

Acne scars

If you have scars due to acne or other wounds, microneedling may be able to help smooth them and reduce their appearance. The collagen growth helps to change the way those scars look, leaving you the skin you’ve always wanted.

Sun damage

Do you have dark spots or hyperpigmentation from spending too much time in the sun? Microneedling can help even out the color of your skin and correct other signs of sun damage.

Fine lines and wrinkles

Most people eventually get fine lines and wrinkles they wish they didn’t have. Microneedling can not only help correct the lines and wrinkles you already have, but can help prevent new ones from forming. Because it stimulates the growth of new skin cells, you’ll have fresh, youthful skin.


One of the biggest benefits of having enough collagen and elastin is that they’re the components that keep your skin firm and tight. The collagen provides fullness and the elastin keeps that fullness where it should be, preventing sagging. Microneedling helps your body produce more of both.

Smaller pores

You might not think that making a bunch of tiny holes in your skin could make the natural “holes” — your pores — look smaller, but microneedling does help your pores appear smaller. This is because the extra collagen production plumps up the skin around your pores, which diminishes their size.

Improves absorption of products

If, like many other people, you spend a significant amount of money on moisturizers, serums, and other skin care products, you want to get the full benefit of them, right? Skin care can be expensive, and microneedling can help your products work better because the tiny punctures allow them to be absorbed more efficiently

Stretch mark reduction

Microneedling isn’t just for your face. It can help improve the appearance of your skin anywhere you need it. Do you have stretch marks on your abdomen? Or hyperpigmentation on your chest? Microneedling may be the solution you’ve been hoping for.
