Microneedling is a rising trend in cosmetic circles. It involves the use of tiny needles to create microscopic punctures in a client’s skin. This may sound crazy, but it is actually painless and can help reduce the visibility of:
- Acne scars
- Age spots
- Fine lines
- Inelastic skin
The secret is in the technique’s ability to trigger the body’s natural healing processes, which leads to the increased production of collagen. By creating these tiny holes, invisible to the naked eye, microneedling gets your body to produce more collagen without causing any significant or even visible damage. Thus, healthier skin comes to the surface and your confidence in your appearance is restored!
At Glow Aesthetic Center, we treat clients from all across California, including Tarzana. Our medical staff, led by Dr. Homan Siman, stays abreast of all cutting-edge techniques and knows how to safely and effectively provide you with the care you need. We tailor our microneedling sessions to the specific needs of your skin, typically packaging them in bundles of four to six sessions.

The Importance of Collagen
Collagen is the most dominant protein in your body. It acts as a structural component that helps provide a framework for your organs and tissues, most notably your skin. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen and our existing collagen weakens. This leads to our skin sagging and becoming inelastic. It also means more wrinkles and age lines. By stimulating collagen production, microneedling boosts the structural strength of your skin. The result? More elasticity, plumper skin, more even skin tones, and a reduction in the visibility of scar tissue.
Some other issues for which microneedling has proved useful include:
- Atrophic facial scars (under the surface)
- Enlarged skin pores
- Liver spots (or sun spots)
A History of Effectiveness
Microneedling has become more mainstream due to its effectiveness in treating a variety of skin issues. According to Harvard Health, the past five years have seen a huge uptick in clients asking for these treatments. Several studies have shown that microneedling does exactly what it purports to do: causes the skin to heal itself and reduces the visibility of facial skin problems.
In one such study reported on by the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery, 80% of clients reported “excellent” results after receiving microneedling treatments for scarring. This high rate of approval has led to the practice becoming increasingly popular.

Any medical treatment will have side effects, but microneedling treatments only result in mild issues. After your Tarzana microneedling session, you can expect to see a tinge of red to your skin (similar to a light sunburn). You may also experience some slight swelling in the affected area.
However, there should be NO:
- Excessive skin peeling
Any redness or swelling should be gone within a few days. If you wish to mask the redness, applying makeup is safe. Additionally, you will want to wear plenty of sunscreen in the days following your microneedling treatment. Not only is this just a good idea for anyone in sunny California, but it is especially important after treatment, as your skin will be more sensitive to sun damage.
When You Can Start to See Results
Everybody’s body is different and handles the healing process differently. As such, there is no set deadline by which you should start seeing results from your microneedling treatment. While you might see some immediate improvements, the real results typically take anywhere from three to six months to show up. That’s because the skin needs time to produce more collagen.
When you are finished with your first microneedling session, the team at Glow Aesthetic Center will schedule you for the next one. That way, you always get the touch-ups you need to continue to stimulate your skin’s natural healing processes, and you don’t have to remember to schedule them! Most people start seeing significant results within a few weeks of their first microneedling session.
