What is Microneedling?
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 our Atlanta facial plastic surgery practice, uses micro needles to gently perforate the skin and stimulate the skin’s natural repair mechanisms, leaving patients with a fresh, youthful glow.

A Series of Treatments Alternating with Chemical Peel
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 Micro Pen Evo by Crown Aesthetics 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 microneedling treatment.
Before the procedure begins, we will apply a numbing cream for comfort. Then, our skin care specialist will use the MicroPen Evo 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.
How Many Microneedling Treatments Will I Need?
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.*
What Is Recovery Like After a Microneedling Procedure?
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.
