Microneedling, also known as skin needling, is a form of collagen induction therapy which stimulates the skin’s natural healing process and promotes the growth of new cells. This procedure, available at Beaty Facial Plastic Surgery in Atlanta, uses micro needles to gently perforate the skin and stimulate the skin’s natural repair mechanisms, leaving patients with a fresh, youthful glow.
Am I a Good Candidate for Microneedling?
Microneedling is an ideal solution for patients who are looking for a quick, painless, and effective way to improve the texture and tone of their skin.
This safe and effective procedure treats and improves the following problems:
- Acne, burn, and surgical scars
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Stretch marks
- Loose, lax skin
- Hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation
How Does the Microneedling Treatment Work?
Beaty Facial Plastic Surgery in metro Atlanta uses the latest microneedling technology available to help our patients feel better about the skin that they’re in. The Rejuvapen® Micro Fractional Collagen Stimulation System not only activates the generation of collagen and elastin, but also enhances the skin’s ability to absorb the active ingredients of treatment serums or patient-derived growth factors. This maximizes the rejuvenating effects of the Rejuvapen® microneedling treatment.
Before the procedure begins, a numbing cream will be applied for comfort. Then, our skin care specialist at Beaty Facial Plastic Surgery will use the Rejuvapen® microneedling device to gently penetrate the upper layers of the skin. The whole process takes about an hour. On the day of the procedure, patients should avoid using lotions, makeup, or other topical products on their face.
What Results Can I Expect from Microneedling?
Microneedling can take years off your face in just a few short sessions. Our patients enjoy younger, firmer skin with fewer fine lines and wrinkles. Because the microneedling procedure actually boosts circulation, the overall condition of the skin is improved from the inside out.
Microneedling goes deeper than microdermabrasion, another skin rejuvenation procedure offered at Beaty Facial Plastic Surgery. During your consultation, our double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Beaty and skin care specialist Shawndelle Carter will help you decide which treatment is best for you.
When Can Patients See Results from Microneedling?
The number of microneedling treatments recommended is tailored to the individual. At Beaty Facial Plastic Surgery, we recommend more than one treatment as results are cumulative. Most of our patients purchase a package of three treatments to begin with. In order to allow new collagen to form between sessions, we typically recommend scheduling microneedling treatments four to six weeks apart.*
How Long Does Healing Take After a Microneedling Treatment?
Microneedling requires no downtime. Some patients may experience redness, dryness, or swelling for a day or two after the treatment, which can easily be covered by makeup, allowing patients to go back to work and their lives without worry.
