Microneedling in Fayetteville

When you are looking for non-surgical skin repair and rejuvenation, there are several choices you can go with. Microneedling, laser resurfacing, and intensive chemical peels may all get the job done. However, it is important to choose your procedure based on your cosmetic concerns, skin type, underlying medical conditions, and required recovery time for the procedure you choose.

Discover how microneedling in Fayetteville can help you achieve your aesthetic goals and provide you with short-term and long-term skincare benefits.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is sometimes called collagen induction therapy because it creates controlled micro-injuries in the skin, which in turn promotes new collagen growth. Your medical practitioner uses a handheld device that contains hundreds of tiny and very thin needles which will puncture your skin. This creates the controlled injury and kickstarts natural cell regeneration and collagen production.

The procedure is not as painful as it sounds, but we can use ice packs to help numb the area of the body being treated. Microneedling is a popular procedure in Fayetteville, GA because it can be used to improve a variety of skin conditions, and smooth lines and wrinkles on your face as your body begins to produce more collagen in the area. This also helps to even out skin tone and minimize large pores.

Another benefit is that the firmness of your skin tone and texture develops over time and leaves you with natural-looking results. While the results are dramatic, it does not give the impression that you had plastic surgery. The application of microneedling can also be accompanied by the injection of facial serums to help improve collagen production and hydration.

Benefits of Microneedling

Like any other procedure, there are benefits and disadvantages to microneedling. The procedure can be done anywhere on the body, so it can help improve the appearance of stretch marks that develop during pregnancy. It can also be paired with other procedures, such as Botox injections.

Microneedling is a relatively quick, comfortable, and cost-effective procedure when compared to other skin rejuvenation options. Your practitioner can customize the treatment to address localized issues, such as lines on your neck or chest, crow’s feet, or acne scars.

Depending on the intensity of the treatment, recovery is typically just a few days, and, since microneedling does not employ heat, it is safe to use on nearly all skin types without the risk of hyperpigmentation that can accompany other skin rejuvenation options.

Since the device deploys controlled injury, a potential side effect is infection. You must follow the physician assistant’s post-procedure advice carefully to reduce this potential risk.

What to Expect Afterward

Your skin typically appears red and inflamed for the first two days after the procedure is completed. The length of time will depend on your skin tone. In other words, people with fair skin may have redness that looks like a bad sunburn for a longer period than those with a darker complexion.

In the first two weeks after a Fayetteville microneedling session, you may also have crusting, skin flaking, and sensitivity, especially if the treatment was aggressive. Recovery time is generally two weeks, but for some people, it can take longer. We will give you detailed instructions on how to care for your skin at home. You will be asked to wash your face with a gentle cleanser after eight hours and refrain from wearing any makeup for two days after the treatment. We do allow you to wear a tinted moisturizer the following day, but encourage you to apply this with clean hands only.

It is important to avoid UV light as much as possible and wear sunscreen SPF 30 after the skin has healed. Applying skin care products with growth factors and peptides may help speed up skin repair and it is important to keep the skin moisturized during recovery.
