What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a treatment that punctures small holes in the skin on your face, neck, or other areas of the body to stimulate skin restoration. Our facility uses the SkinPen®, a state-of-the-art device, to perform this procedure. Microneedling can decrease the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots, large pores, scars, fine lines, and other skin conditions. It may significantly enhance the surface of your skin to look smoother and more evenly toned without damaging the epidermis. If you’d like to find out more about microneedling, contact board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters in New Orleans, LA, to schedule a private consultation.

Is Microneedling Right for Me?

A great candidate for microneedling is any individual seeking to alter the look or feel of the top layer of their skin. Uneven skin tone, dry skin, coarse texture, loose skin, age spots, acne, wrinkles, and scarring are skin conditions that may benefit from microneedling therapy. This procedure may also be utilized to fight the effects of sun damage that might have caused the skin to have a rough feel or hyperpigmentation.

How Is Microneedling Performed?

For your microneedling therapy, Dr. Walters employs innovative technology using the SkinPen device to make small holes in your skin. The fine needles won’t harm your skin but will help stimulate the creation of collagen. When the microneedling is done, a restorative serum may be placed on the epidermis to sink in. Once the serum is completely absorbed, we’ll clear away any excess and cleanse the skin.

What Results Can I Expect from Microneedling?

After your procedure, you could encounter some common effects, such as swelling, bruising, and redness. Dr. Walters recommends that patients avoid using makeup, cleansing with exfoliating face washes, or swimming in pools for around three days following the session. Activities like this could expose the treatment area to strong bacteria and chemicals that may cause negative side effects. You also need to reduce exposure to the sun or use protective steps when planning to be outdoors. Full results are usually noticed within the first month as the skin works to fix and heal itself.
