Microneedling is a safe and effective way to smoothen your skin and promote even skin tone and texture. This procedure is perfect for treating acne scars, surgical scars, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, large pores, and uneven or rough skin. When combined with platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, microneedling can accelerate the skin rejuvenation process and stimulate skin renewal.

How Does Microneedling Work?

Microneedling stimulates the body's own natural restorative processes. By creating micro-wounds in the skin with specialized, minute needles, the treatment catalyzes the body into creating fresh, new collagen and elastin cells that can help your skin look and feel softer, firmer, and more even-toned. When done regularly, your skin will become more resilient, and wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, and fine lines will be visibly reduced.

What Is A Microneedling Treatment Like?

Client comfort and care are the top priority at Robb Facial Plastic Surgery. Microneedling involves minimal discomfort, and feels like a light scratching sensation on the skin. Specialized small needles make tiny pricks on the surface of the skin.

For some patients, areas where the skin is stretched over bone may be more sensitive than others. One session takes around thirty minutes, and most patients establish a semi-regular microneedling treatment routine.

Is Microneedling Right For Me?

While surgical solutions can improve the shape and contour of your face, they cannot impact the quality of your skin. Healthy, hydrated, supple skin is a key component of a youthful face.

Non-invasive procedures like microneedling help you achieve beautiful, blemish-free skin. Those who experience the following are good candidates for microneedling:

  • Acne scars
  • Rough skin
  • Sun damaged skin
  • Stretchmarks
  • Surgical scars
  • Fine lines, wrinkles

Recovery From Microneedling

Microneedling is an outpatient treatment and requires no downtime, and most people return to their normal activities after treatment. You may experience some soreness and tenderness immediately after with a slight redness or mild bruising, which usually subsides in 2-4 days. It is especially important to protect your skin from the sun with the use of sunscreen and hats for the next week or so. Settings with excessive heat like saunas, tanning beds, and jacuzzis should also be avoided for about a week.

What Kind Of Results Can I Expect?

Because microneedling works to encourage production of new elastin and collagen cells, full results become apparent over the course of 4-6 weeks. From the day of your treatment to this peak, your skin will become increasingly brighter and firmer, leaving you looking fresh-faced and more youthful.
