The team at Olack Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Show Low, AZ works routinely with men and women considering breast, body, and facial procedures. However, plastic surgery is not always the solution. This is why we offer a myriad of nonsurgical treatments including microneedling, which is a great way to enhance the skin’s texture and tone without a facelift or browlift.
What is microneedling?
Our providers describe microneedling as a minimally-invasive treatment that is used to improve the skin’s overall texture and tone with the administration of tiny punctures created with hundreds of needles. A specialized handheld device creates thousands of holes in the treatment area, piercing the skin to help in stimulating the skin’s natural wound-healing response. This means that the production of collagen and elastin will be ramped up to restore the skin, which in turn tightens and tones the skin over the course of several weeks.
Why use microneedling?
Microneedling is a safe, effective, and affordable way to address skin imperfections that can be addressed with the improvement of collagen and elastin production. Patients with the following concerns and conditions might consider this treatment for noticeable results:
- Active acne
- Acne scarring
- Poor skin texture and tone
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Pigmentation concerns
- Large pores
- Skin laxity
Where can microneedling be used?
The most common way to use microneedling is for facial rejuvenation. However, if patients have scarring or other imperfections elsewhere on the body, the microneedling treatment can be performed where it is needed.
Do I need to schedule recovery time?
Surgeries often require recovery time because of how invasive they are. However, microneedling requires minimal recovery. Patients will notice redness, swelling, and some discomfort of the treated skin for a day or two following their procedure, but most will return to work and other activities the same day as their treatment session with minimal interruptions.
