Microneedling treatments can rejuvenate your skin and repair cosmetic damage and signs of aging. Microneedling triggers your body to create new collagen and elastin, which can improve skin structure and help restore a more radiant complexion. Our skin care experts at Astra Plastic Surgery offer microneedling treatments to help patients in Atlanta enhance their appearance with minimal downtime and recovery.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive treatment used to rejuvenate your skin. During microneedling, fine needles are utilized to create tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers your body to naturally create new collagen and elastin.
The results can include improved skin texture and firmness, as well as a reduction in scars, pore sizes, and stretch marks. By stimulating your skin’s natural healing processes with microneedling, you can minimize wrinkles and improve the appearance of scars with minimal recovery time. Microneedling is a simple, effective method for enhancing your complexion.
Microneedling can target areas where your skin is structurally weak; this includes areas where there are contour deformities, divots, and wide depressed scars.
The benefits of microneedling include the effective treatment of mild to moderate acne scarring, the treatment of any new or old scars, fine lines, wrinkles, lax skin, pore size issues, stretch marks, or other aesthetic concerns. Microneedling stimulates circulation and collagen production. It can be used on all areas of your scalp, face, and body, including fragile skin such as around your eyes, mouth, and neck. In addition, the improved dermal thickness caused by microneedling may reduce the appearance of small capillary vessels in your skin.
Patients who want to address scars, fine lines, wrinkles, or other cosmetic imperfections may be candidates for microneedling. Microneedling is minimally invasive, does not involve significant wounding of the skin, and is not light-based – meaning virtually anybody can safely undergo microneedling therapy with a minimal risk of long-term adverse effects.
This skin care technique can be used on all skin types. Even those areas of the body where skin is typically thin can undergo treatment with certain microneedling devices, where depth of penetration is consistent and easily regulated. Dr. Killingsworth and his team of skin care professionals can help you determine if you are an ideal candidate for microneedling treatment during your consultation at our Atlanta, GA offices.
First, the treatment area is cleansed and prepped with a lidocaine gel to create sufficient numbness so you experience no discomfort whatsoever. During your microneedling procedure, a power hand piece is used to create tiny channels in the dermis of your skin, which initiates your body’s natural healing processes to create collagen and elastin.
This can result in notable improvements to your skin texture, including minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, as well as diminishing the existence of hyperpigmentation or discoloration of your skin. This same form of collagen induction with microneedling can reduce the prominence of acne scars. In addition, microneedling can be used to reduce stretch marks by creating collagen bridging.
The cost of microneedling treatments at Astra Plastic Surgery is based upon the amount of sessions needed to achieve optimal results. During your consultation, it will be determined how many microneedling treatments are necessary to help you achieve your goals. We will then provide you with a detailed cost analysis after your consultation. You can pay for your treatments via cash, personal check, credit card, CareCredit®, and Alphaeon® Credit financing.
