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
"I can’t say enough great things about Dr. Barraza and the entire Face and Body Center staff I have encountered! They’re all extremely professional and very helpful. Dr. Barraza takes plenty of time with his patients discussing procedures and explaining all options. I truly felt like he treated me as he would his own wife/daughter. Very thankful for him and his wonderful nurses!"- B.C. / Google / Mar 12, 2019

"From beginning to end, The Face and Body Center went above and beyond my expectations! I went in for a BA consult in April of 2018 and by March 2019 I was finally ready to take the plunge and have the surgery. Dr. Barraza and his staff were amazing and they made the process so EASY!!! I was a nervous wreck the day of my surgery, but they were so calm, collected and professional that it was hard to worry! It was seriously a breeze. I can't wait to see the final results, but I know they're going to be great! I highly recommend Dr. Barraza!!!"- L.A. / Google / Mar 12, 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.
