Looking for a way to boost your skincare routine and revive your complexion? If you’re frustrated with wrinkles, acne scars, or uneven skin tone, you’re undoubtedly eager for a treatment with fast, noticeable results. Microneedling at Longwood Plastic Surgery offers just that!

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation treatment that uses your body’s natural healing process to improve your complexion. Also known as collagen induction therapy, the treatment uses a handheld device with tiny needles to cause controlled damage to your skin. This initiates a healing response that boosts collagen production and helps remove dead skin cells.

We offer microneedling treatments for the face, neck, decolletage, and hands. Microneedling can improve:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin texture and tone
  • Acne scars
  • Enlarged pores
  • Sun damage, dark spots, and hyperpigmentation

How Does Microneedling Work?

Microneedling treatments at Longwood Plastic Surgery are simple and convenient. We’ll apply a topical numbing cream for your comfort. Since this takes some time to take effect, the entire microneedling appointment may take an hour or two. 

Once your skin is numb, your provider carefully moves the microneedling pen over the treatment area. It has 12 ultra-fine needles that will cause micro-damage to trigger collagen production. We’ll then apply a hyaluronic acid serum, which will infuse deeper into your skin and be more effective because of the micro-channels.

When Will I See Microneedling Results?

Microneedling has both short-term and long-term results. For the first few days, your skin may be red and sensitive. But within a week or two, you should see a brighter, clearer complexion. Patients typically notice smaller pores and a more even skin tone.

The full results of microneedling usually require a few treatments and some time to develop. Over the following weeks, your skin produces more collagen, and concerns like acne scars, wrinkles, and rough texture start to improve. We recommend three or more treatments spaced a month apart for the best results. The accumulative benefits of multiple sessions yield optimal improvements in four to six months.

How Long Do Microneedling Results Last?

Once you achieve a more youthful, radiant appearance with microneedling, no doubt you’ll want to keep it! Most patients enjoy microneedling results for several months. With one or two maintenance sessions a year, you can keep your skin healthy and happy for years to come.

Am I a Good Candidate for Microneedling?

Microneedling is a suitable skin rejuvenation treatment for almost anyone. Unlike many laser treatments, microneedling is safe for all skin tones. Your provider can adjust the intensity of the treatment depending on your needs and skin sensitivity. We may not recommend microneedling if you are pregnant, nursing, or have an active skin condition like rosacea or eczema.
