Microneedling: How To Treat Dark Under-Eyes

Microneedling: How To Treat Dark Under-Eyes

Have puffy eyes and dark circles or heavy bags under your eyes? These are all problems that women and men commonly deal with, especially those who work long hours in front of a computer screen every day. If this sounds like you, it might be time to consider microneedling.

Our microneedling in Boston (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy and Derma Rolling) is an innovative skincare treatment that gets rid of wrinkles under the eyes for all skin types.

We're sharing everything you need to know about microneedling treatment so you can find out if it's right for you!

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a process of skin rejuvenation that involves creating micro-perforations in the skin to induce a wound healing response under a numbing cream. The device has rows of finely serrated needles, which are rolled over the skin to create microscopic scratches.

The body’s controlled injury response quickly seals these scratches. The abrasions cause an inflammatory response that stimulates collagen and elastin production and the formation of new skin cells and capillaries. This results in new tissue growth and improved skin texture.

Microneedling is an effective treatment for acne scarring, stretch marks, and fine lines for all skin tones. It helps improve the appearance of sun damage, age spots, and hyperpigmentation. It can also be combined with other treatments, such as laser resurfacing or chemical peels.

Microneedling with hyaluronic acid provides synergistic effects on the skin surface. The micro-channels created by microneedling allow increased penetration of hyaluronic acid into the dermis, allowing more effective delivery of this compound into your skin's tissues.

Additionally, after treatment, microneedling can help improve collagen production within your skin by increasing blood flow to your skin's dermis layer.

How Does Microneedling Treat Your Under-Eyes?

Microneedling for under-eye treatment is ideal for those who wish to reduce puffiness, dark circles, and fine lines around their eyes. It reduces inflammation, stimulates collagen production, and improves blood circulation by penetrating deep into the dermis.

Microneedling is a great way to treat bags under the eyes and stimulate collagen production in your skin. Collagen is the protein that gives skin its elasticity, so when you have less than optimal amounts of it, you develop loose and saggy skin.

This is especially true around your eyes, where there is very little fat tissue or thicker skin to support the skin around your orbital cavity. It also reduces puffiness because it helps drain excess fluid from under your eyes.

Who Is A Good Candidate For A Microneedling Procedure?

In general, people with the following skin concerns can benefit from microneedling:

  • Oily skin or an oily T-zone caused by overactive sebaceous glands
  • Dryness, flakiness, and fine lines are associated with aging (you have enough other signs of aging on your face; you don't need to add more!)
  • Uneven texture such as acne scars, redness, keloid scars, dilated capillaries (broken blood vessels), or freckles that won't respond to topical products
  • Hyperpigmentation patches due to sun damage

What Are The Risks And Side Effects Associated With Microneedling?

The risks of microneedling are generally mild and temporary.

Some people experience:

  • Swelling, which may last for a few days or weeks
  • Scarring, though this is rare
  • Bruising or pain usually resolves within a few days
  • Skin infection, though it rarely occurs, if you use sterile needles and clean them correctly

Depending on your health conditions, some people can have serious reactions to the side effects. So, please consult a dermatologist before proceeding with any treatment.

Other possible side effects include allergic reactions, anaphylaxis (a severe allergic reaction that could be life-threatening), and hives. If you have a history of allergies or asthma, be sure to tell your doctor before treatment begins.

How Much Does Microneedling Cost?

When it comes to microneedling prices, you’ll want to ask your esthetician about potential costs during the initial consultation. Although it might cost more than some people expect, there are plenty of reasons to try microneedling.

The cost of microneedling treatment varies from location to location, the practitioner's training, the type of device being used, and how many sessions you need. The number of sessions will depend on the severity of your skin concerns, but most people need at least 2-3 treatments to get optimal results.

Boston microneedling therapy typically costs between $400 and $700 per session. However, it is considered an aesthetic treatment rather than a medical one. It is not typically covered by insurance.
