About Microneedling

Microneedling performed at The Face & Body Center is a highly effective skin treatment recommended by our board-certified plastic surgeons. This noninvasive procedure works by allowing tiny needles to lightly puncture the skin. This triggers the body's natural healing process, which results in greater collagen production and improved skin elasticity for an overall clearer, smoother complexion. We often perform microneedling for our Flowood, MS patients who are experiencing acne, scarring, signs of aging, pigmentation issues, and other skin irregularities. If you would like to learn more about this innovative technology and its benefits, then we invite you to schedule a consultation at our office and find out if you're a candidate. 

best candidates

You will be a good candidate for microneedling if you experience some or all of the following:

  • Uneven skin tone
  • Redness or hyperpigmentation
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Skin laxity
  • Sun damage and/or sun spots
  • Rough texture

What to Expect

Before your treatment, your skin will be cleansed and a topical numbing agent will be applied. One of our team members will pass the MesoPen® microneedling device over the desired areas such as the face, neck, or chest area, where tiny holes will be created on the surface of the skin to ignite collagen production. The device is able to work in three different directions: vertically, horizontally, and in small circular patterns over the entire face for a customized treatment. There may be some discomfort, but it should be minimal. You can expect to see some redness similar to a sunburn on the treated areas for up to a few days after your session. However, there is no downtime associated with microneedling.

Anticipated Results

You will notice some improvement right after the procedure, but it will generally take a couple of weeks to see marked improvement in your tone, texture, and overall complexion. You should notice fewer blemishes, lines, wrinkles, and pigmentation issues. You can enjoy your results for up to six months, and then it is recommended to maintain follow-up sessions to preserve your look. The number of sessions needed to produce your desired results will vary based on your skin's condition, but 2 – 3 treatments are generally recommended.
