What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is an outstanding FDA-approved treatment to refresh and revitalize the skin by improving scars, sun damage, large pores, fine lines, loose skin, and wrinkles. Microneedling utilizes superfine microneedles on the skin surface to create tiny punctures and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. Boosting collagen and elastin is the key to rebuilding youthful, radiant skin.

Get Your Youthful Glow Back! 

As we age, sun damage and stress are among the many reasons for skin changes including sagging, laxity, sun spots, scarring, and wrinkles. Microneedling treatments when performed regularly can provide highly effective and long-term results without the need for surgery. If you are ready to regain a healthy, radiant appearance, it’s time to book your Microneedling session at Givens Facial Plastic Surgery in Austin.

How is a Microneedling Treatment Performed?

Dr. Givens utilizes the SkinPen, a state-of-the-art and FDA-approved microneedling device, to target areas of skin damage. Before your microneedling treatment, topical numbing cream will be applied to your skin and treatment area to minimize discomfort and allow for a relatively pain-free treatment. Treated regions increase circulation while collagen and elastin production are triggered to essentially jumpstart the body’s natural healing process. A series of initial treatments is recommended followed by yearly maintenance for best results in creating renewed, healthier skin. And, each treatment takes less than 30 minutes!

Who is a candidate for microneedling? 

Microneedling is a minimally invasive and safe option for both men and women who desire reduced fine lines, decreased scar visibility, even skin tone, and smooth skin texture. And, it is safe for ALL skin types!

Common areas of treatment performed at Givens Facial Plastic Surgery include the face, neck, chest or décolletage, and hands.

What skin concerns does microneedling improve?

  • Uneven skin tone, pigmentation, and texture 
  • Large pores
  • Traumatic and acne scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Reduced skin elasticity
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

Results

Microneedling results in wrinkle reduction, pore minimization, and a toned, glowing appearance. Post-treatment healing naturally stimulates the body to regenerate and rebuild both collagen and elastin. As your skin improves over 4-6 weeks post-procedure, the results become more significant and visible. Enjoy tighter, smoother, more supple, and radiant skin as your results will last for 3-6 months!

About Dr. Givens

Dr. Victoria Givens

WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR MICRONEEDLING?

Microneedling with SkinPen is a minimally invasive and safe option for both men and women who desire reduced fine lines, improved facial scarring, even skin tone, and smooth skin texture. And, it is safe for ALL skin types!

DOES THE MICRONEEDLING PROCEDURE HURT?

Before your microneedling treatment, topical numbing cream will be applied to your skin and treatment area to minimize discomfort and allow for a relatively pain-free treatment.

WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME AFTER A MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT?

Patients may experience redness/pinkness similar to a sunburn for 24-72 hours. However, most patients have resolution of redness within 24 hours.

HOW MANY MICRONEEDLING TREATMENTS ARE RECOMMENDED?

A series of 3 initial SkinPen microneedling treatments scheduled every 4-6 weeks is highly recommended for optimal boosting of collagen and elastin production. For continued results, maintenance treatments are required every 6 months. In patients that desire improvement in scar visibility, 4 or more initial SkinPen treatments may be necessary.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS AFTER A MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT?

While most patients notice healthier and more vibrant skin immediately, the body’s healing process continues to produce results over the course of several weeks and/or months. Long-term skin damage or injury that has occurred over an extensive period of time will not disappear immediately and often requires additional treatments for best results.
