Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, remains a very popular skin treatment today in Brookhaven. Unfortunately, as we age, the collagen and elasticity of our skin quickly deteriorates. In order to maintain the youthful glow of our younger self, regular skin treatments may be necessary. Many people will notice that their skin will become uneven in tone and texture as they age. Also, they will notice that scars left behind from acne during the teenage years continue to look look worse. This will result in hundreds of thousands of dollars being spent on experimenting with over the counter skin care products that don’t live up to their false promises. If this sounds familiar, you don’t need to keep throwing money away on ineffective products or treatments. Microneedling may be exactly what the doctor ordered.

I am interested in microneedling near Brookhaven. Am I a candidate?
If you feel like microneedling might benefit you, we will thoroughly analyze your skin during our initial consultation to ensure you are a good candidate for this treatment. You may benefit from microneedling if you have slight to moderate skin issues, such as rough skin texture or low elasticity. Patients may not be considered a candidate if a patient is looking for more aggressive results quickly, such as extremely loose or sagging skin. In these instances, surgical treatments may be required to achieve desired results. Anyone looking to reduce the appearance of pore size, stretch marks, or scars may be an ideal candidate for microneedling.
Will microneedling hurt?
Microneedling is a skin rejuvinating procedure where tiny needles are used to create small holes on the skin. During the skin healing process, new collagen and elastin are formed to help improve the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and stretch marks. For added benefit, serums are often added during a microneedling appointment that will be able to penetrate deeper into the skin, thus improving your skin faster.
The micro-injuries caused by the microneedling device trigger the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, two nutrients that contribute to the health and appearance of the skin. While the thought of needles rapidly entering the skin may cause some to be squeamish about the treatment, you can rest easy knowing that the treatment is virtually pain free. Prior to the treatment, your provider will thoroughly numb the skin with topical numbing cream. This will allow you to enjoy the benefits of the treatment with little to no discomfort. With minimal discomfort and no downtime, microneedling continues to be a very popular skin treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
In Brookhaven and statewide, the amount of treatments you will need varies on the condition of the skin being treated and the skin’s overall skin health. An experienced provider will be able to make the most of each treatment in order to minimize the number of treatments required for optimal results. Not all microneedling devices are made equal, so ensure your provider is up to date with the latest and greatest technologies prior to getting treated and not using an older or outdated device. For most patients, you will see lasting results in as little as one treatment. Regular maintenance treatments will be require to maintain that youthful glow, as skin elasticity will continue to deteriorate as a normal part of the aging process.
I just received microneedling in Brookhaven. What is the down time?
After the treatment has been performed, a moisturizer will be massaged into the skin along with a sunscreen as your skin will likely be sensitive after the procedure. Thankfully, this is not long lasting and you can go about regular activities shortly after the treatment is completed. You may have some swelling and redness for about a day, but this should subside quickly on its own.
It may take about 1 – 2 months to see the best results from this procedure, as the collagen and elastin levels increase gradually over time. While you will see the benefits immediately following, you will continue to see visible improvements in the health and appearance of your skin over the next 2 months.
