Microneedling

Without enough collagen, our skin can begin to lose its firmness and our appearance becomes aged. But modern rejuvenation treatments are a way to fight back against time. With microneedling, you can address a variety of skin concerns with a safe, non-surgical treatment method.

What Is Microneedling?

A microneedling treatment is used to improve the overall appearance of the skin. Specifically, microneedling works to address:

  • Skin tone
  • Texture
  • Scars
  • Pores
  • Hyperpigmentation

Every aspect of this treatment is personalized to match your unique needs and goals. Using a combination of tiny punctures and energy, the microneedling process stimulates collagen and elastin production. Another name for this revolutionary style of treatment is collagen induction therapy.

The end result: a stunning rejuvenation of the face and restoration of a youthful glow. One of the advantages of microneedling is that it can treat concerns on almost any area of the body. Though this procedure is typically used on the face, it can treat other areas of the body as well.

Is Microneedling Right for Me?

Candidates for this procedure would like to address skin concerns without the use of injectables or invasive cosmetic surgery. While both these options can deliver great results, we focus on what best matches your needs. Some patients do not like the idea of injections. And surgery comes with longer recovery periods. Microneedling then is a great option for patients who want a convenient and safe means of improving their skin.

Microneedling is excellent for patients who would like to refresh their look with the use of a light treatment. Most patients are candidates for this procedure because it is a highly noninvasive and simple treatment. No matter your age, you can have a microneedling treatment. This procedure is also a safe treatment for darker skin tones with no risk of hyperpigmentation, unlike other laser treatments.

Candidacy for this treatment will also be determined by Dr. Linville. During a comprehensive consultation, he will sit with the patient to examine their skin and discuss their aesthetic goals. When the appointment is finished, he will then create a specialized microneedling treatment plan for the patient based on his expertise and their goals. The treatment sessions will vary based on the patient. Dr. Linville will schedule all treatment dates and educate the patient on the entire process during the first consultation.

What are the Benefits of Microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally-invasive, non-surgical treatment that corrects skin concerns. It is an effective and affordable treatment to rejuvenate the appearance without the need for injections or incisions.

It is a safe procedure that provides visible results for patients without the need for a lengthy time in recovery. This procedure reduces wrinkles, repairs scarring, reverses aging, shrinks pores, and evens skin tone. There is little to no scarring during the recovery. Instead, the treatment uses tiny punctures, which your body can easily heal on its own.

The Microneedling Process: How Does It Work?

Before the procedure, Dr. Linville will numb the area with a light topical cream. No need for heavy anesthesia, so less stress is put on your body. Dr. Linville will use a state-of-the-art microneedling device to create small wounds in the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production through the body’s natural healing process. Most patients report either no discomfort or only a minimal amount during the process.

The device will be strategically placed around the areas of concern. In one session, you can treat multiple areas. The duration of each treatment session depends on the problem areas being addressed. In general, the treatment can take about 30 minutes for an average session. If you treat multiple areas, it might last up to an hour.

Recovery and Results

After the procedure, patients may experience slight tingling, redness, and swelling. Patients may return to work within 24 hours of the treatment. So we often recommend this treatment over the weekend.

You will notice improvements after even a single session. However, your final results will be shown gradually and depend upon the patient’s own healing process. In the coming weeks, your body will begin the healing process, producing new collagen naturally. As you build up new collagen, you will notice significant improvements in skin tone, texture, and appearance.

Throughout the whole treatment process, Dr. Linville will monitor the patient’s progress to ensure a seamless healing process. If you have any questions or concerns, we are here every step of the way.
