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.
"Awesome Experince - After visiting just about every Surgeon in MS and LA, I saw Dr. Davidson, I knew right then he was my pick. In October 2016 I went in to the office and he drained my 450 each breast saline implants. No pain so simple, sent me home and said come back in 6 weeks. Mind you I still had the bags in. Thought this would be hard really never knew they were there. I had some pre-cancerous spots..."- A. / RealSelf / Jun 06, 2018
"Septoplasty/rhinoplasty: I’m 3 days post op and already very pleased with my results. - January 2019 I was in a pretty bad car accident. Airbags didn’t deploy, so nose met steering wheel! I had two fractures in the nasal bone and my left side cartilage was pushed in, forming a “dent” on the outside of my nose. Fast forward a few months, I met with dr Adrian Smith to discuss putting my nose “back to normal”. He addressed all of my concerns and his demeanor just put me at ease about the whole situation. I’m 3 days post op and already very pleased with my results."- R. / RealSelf / May 03, 2019
"Dr Manisundaram and his staff is the best"- H.N. / Google / May 02, 2019
"I went in today for my surgical consult and I was quite surprised how wonderful the facility was. It was professional but also homely. From the very beginning, the front desk staff was very friendly. Everyone I met was kind and in good spirits. They all had a great attitude. They laughed a lot which means they have a great sense of humor. I’m very nervous about my procedure but as soon as I met Dr. Smith and his staff, I was completely at ease. He explained everything thoroughly and answered all of my questions. He gave me plenty of time to ask them, too. He didn’t push me out the door. I was well-informed about the procedure, he listened to exactly what I wanted, and he was confident in his abilities to give me what I desire. Upon request, I looked through a picture portfolio of his work and I was very impressed. The young lady came in and photographed me (before pictures, I suppose) and I actually laughed most of the time. Taking my clothes off in front of strangers makes me very nervous, especially with my condition. But I laughed, she laughed with me, but still it was a very comfortable and professional environment. I even had more questions while in the billing department, or the office that takes the payment for your procedures, and they phoned the nurse’s desk and sent me back to ask more questions. Not once did I feel like I was a burden or “just another patient.” I’m very much comfortable moving forward with this operation with Dr. Smith!"- Z.1. / Google / Apr 27, 2019
"Dr. Smith is the most personable doctor I think I ever met. He should teach a class on bedside manner. He did an excellent job removing a cyst from my head. I think I'm in love!!"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Apr 19, 2019
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.
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.
