Are you bothered by acne scars, scars from surgeries or burns, traumatic scars, wrinkles, stretch marks or skin discoloration? If so, microneedling in Atlanta, GA may offer you the solution you have been searching for. Microneedling increases collagen production and rejuvenates the skin by causing controlled mechanical micro-injuries in a small portion of the skin, leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. Afterward, a growth factor serum can be applied for an even greater stimulation of collagen production.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is designed to be a simple and convenient procedure. By using a topical anesthetic, the treatment can be performed with little, if any, discomfort. Most people say they feel nothing but a mild vibration and can resume their daily activities immediately after the treatment. The procedure is minimally-invasive, and the healing process is fast. Any aftercare can be applied in the comfort of your own home. Depending on your particular situation and the area to be treated, a series of treatment sessions is usually recommended to achieve optimal results.
What Results Can I Expect?
Almost everyone notices a healthy glow to their skin the next day after their treatment. However, rejuvenated skin can generally be seen in the days and weeks following the procedure, with continued results over time. The skin will be noticeably smoother and more radiant within a week or two. Full results may take months to appear.
How is Microneedling Done?
Microneedling is performed in the comfort of our office in Atlanta, GA. It begins with cleaning and numbing the area of the skin that will be treated. From there, a special device is moved over the surface of the skin. The speed and adjustability of the needles allow for a more effective penetrating absorption of any skin care products.
Microneedling is known to benefit the skin, including improving its texture, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, regenerating tissue, minimizing the look of scars, and reducing stretch marks and the size of pores. It is also safe to be used on any skin color without the risk of causing hyperpigmentation.
