What is microneedling?
Microneedling stimulates elastin and collagen production as a skin remodeling treatment for younger-looking skin. This can be done in combination with PRP, known as a ‘vampire facial’ or with radiofrequency using Morpheus8.
What is the point of microneedling?
Since this treatment uses tiny little microneedles, it naturally tricks the body (and face) into thinking it needs to heal itself. This process allows your body to reproduce elastin and collagen to give your skin a plump, smooth and youthful look – just as it did when it was consistently producing collagen (before the age of 25).
How does microneedling work?
At Garza Plastic Surgery, we use the Eclipse MicroPen™ for our microneedling treatments. This automated microneedling device creates controlled punctures in the skin that stimulate circulation and the natural production of collagen and elastin. These microchannels also stimulate the body’s natural healing response and allow topical skincare treatments to penetrate deeper into the skin. Microneedling treatments can help improve the appearance of fine lines, reduce the appearance of large pores and acne scarring, and improve the overall quality of the skin.
What areas can be treated?
How many treatments will I need?
We typically recommend a series of three to six treatments spaced approximately four to six weeks apart. Patients can also benefit from a single treatment once a year for regular maintenance as part of your skincare routine. If you are using micro-needling to improve deep wrinkles, stretch marks, or acne scarring we recommend six to eight treatments spaced about four to six weeks apart. The number of treatments can vary from patient to patient depending on the condition of your skin and your desired treatment results.
When will I see the results?
Many patients are able to see a radiant glow immediately following a treatment session. Visible results of micro-needling treatments take a few weeks to develop since your skin is improving from the cellular level. You will see continued improvement in your skin for up to six months after a treatment session as new collagen is produced.
What are the side effects?
Most patients experience redness, similar to a minor sunburn, in the treated area immediately following a treatment session. This redness is temporary and typically subsides within two to four days following a treatment session.
