Do you struggle with acne that’s persistent enough to get on your nerves, but not quite bad enough for your insurance to cover dermatology services for you? Are you looking for a simple,  non-invasive way to achieve clearer, brighter skin? If so, microneedling is the solution for you!


At Preveda Health & Aesthetics, we help people from all over Asheville look and feel their best by providing a range of esthetics and skin care services, each specifically selected for the individual needs of each client. In today’s blog, we’ll be giving you a brief look at one of our most popular skincare services, microneedling! Keep reading to learn how this simple, effective treatment can help you enjoy healthier skin. 


How Microneedling Works

There are a variety of types of microneedling treatments, but in general, microneedling is a dermaroller-based procedure in which small needles are used to gently prick the skin, activating your skin’s natural healing properties and encouraging the growth of new collagen without significantly damaging your skin.  Microneedling procedures are mainly used on the face, but can be used anywhere on the body, within reason — some other popular treatment areas of the body for microneedling include the chest, stomach, and buttocks. 


How It Helps Your Skin

Microneedling’s most immediate benefit is that it provides your body a boost in its production of collagen — the protein your body uses to produce smoother, clearer, more youthful skin. This benefit makes microneedling useful for treating wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin tone, and many types of scarring, including acne scars.


Important Things To Know About Microneedling

  • Microneedling treatments are minimally invasive — no downtime required!
  • You can expect to experience minor redness and irritation for a few days after a microneedling treatment — keep the treated area out of the sun to be safe!
  • Microneedling is not covered by insurance, in most cases
  • If you use acne medication, call Preveda first — microneedling isn’t safe if you use certain kinds of acne medication, or if you’re pregnant
