As we age, sun damage, stress, and a number of other factors cause the skin to lose its firm, youthful appearance. Sagging skin, sun spots, scarring, and wrinkles are the result. If you want to turn back time and see a healthy, youthful glow again, you’ve probably looked for or tried a number of remedies. Microneedling at Austin's Givens Facial Plastic Surgery is one of the most highly effective rejuvenation treatments available, giving you outstanding results without the need for surgery.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a proven, outstanding FDA-approved treatment to refresh and revitalize the skin, improve acne scarring, sun damage, large pores, fine lines, loose skin and wrinkles.
Microneedling uses superfine micro-needles on your skin to create tiny punctures. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin production. These two substances in the body are the building blocks for new, youthful and radiant skin and a stronger skin structure.
What happens during a microneedling treatment?
Before your microneedling treatment, we will apply a numbing cream to your skin. This helps to minimize discomfort, although most patients do not describe the treatment to be painful.
An instrument with tiny needles, called a SkinPen, will be applied to the targeted area, passing over the skin and creating micro-injuries. The circulation in the area is increased and collagen and elastin production is triggered, jumpstarting your body’s natural healing process to create new, healthier skin. Each treatment takes 20-30 minutes.
Who is a candidate for microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive, safe option for men and women who would like to smooth and reduce fine lines, improve facial scarring, even out skin tone and texture and address pigmentation concerns. It is safe for all skin types and colors.
Microneedling can be done almost anywhere on the body. Common areas treated are the face, neck, chest or décolletage, buttocks, abdomen and hands.
What skin concerns does microneedling improve?
- uneven skin tone, pigmentation and texture
- large pores
- acne scars
- stretch marks
- reduced skin elasticity
- fine lines and wrinkles
Microneedling results in smoothed wrinkles, minimized pores, and a toned, smooth and glowing face. These results come naturally as the body regenerates and rebuilds the skin with collagen and elastin. As your skin improves over 4-6 weeks, the results become more and more visible. Enjoy tighter, smoother, more supple and radiant skin. Your results will last for three to five months.
