For patients looking for a procedure to reduce the signs of facial aging, microneedling is a must have procedure. Microneedling is a minimally invasive, FDA approved, form of collagen-induction therapy that encourages your skin to revitalize and renew itself naturally. Dr. Farzad R. Nahai, the board-certified plastic surgeon at The Center for Plastic Surgery at Metroderm in Atlanta, GA, is pleased to offer this breakthrough procedure to his patients.
Microneedling is ideally suited for patients who wish to revitalize and refresh the appearance of their skin but are not quite ready for harsh, ablative therapies, laser skin resurfacing, or cosmetic surgery. This gentle anti-aging therapy boosts collagen production to facilitate natural skin renewal while simultaneously resurfacing the skin to minimize the appearance of sun spots and other visible signs of facial aging.
About the Microneedling Procedure
Microneedling involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. These needles are used to puncture the skin at various depths to create a controlled skin injury. The body reacts by filling in these micro wounds and stimulating new skin cell production. The procedure helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and hyperpigmentation, or skin darkening.
Microneedling has been shown to provide patients with the following:
- A comfortable experience
- A short procedure time, approximately 30 min
- Mild after effects with little downtime
- Effective results on all body parts, including the face, neck, and décolletage
- Safe treatment for all skin types—light to dark
- Ideal procedure at any time of the year
- Beautiful, long-lasting results
Aftercare and Recovery
Immediately after microneedling, patients can expect some tenderness and redness in the treatment area. It usually resolves on its own within a day or 2 of the treatment. The results emerge gradually as the new collagen develops. A series of 3 treatments is usually recommended. However, many patients choose to schedule additional treatments to accentuate the improvements in their skin’s tone and texture.
Each patient is unique; therefore, results of treatment may vary.
The microneedling procedure is offered to provide patients with a revitalized and refreshed appearance.
