Microneedling

Your skin is an amazing organ, with the ability to repair itself. As you begin to age, however, that ability slows, and the visible signs of aging set in. Fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, uneven skin tone and texture, and loss of natural volume and firmness can be a blow to your self-esteem. If you would like to combat the visible signs of aging without extensive downtime or pain, Criswell & Criswell Plastic Surgery recommends our Charlotte microneedling treatment to restore and rejuvenate your skin from within.

Microneedling Charlotte, NC

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally-invasive facial treatment involving a series of very small needles. As the treatment is applied to your facial skin, the needles create hundreds of tiny punctures on your skin, Your body is triggered to repair these tiny wounds, creating vibrant, new skin cells and increasing your body’s production of collagen and elastin.

How Does Microneedling Work?

Wounds created from the microneedles cause your body to produce greater amounts of collagen and elastin, smoothing the skin and reducing the visible signs of aging. As new skin cells replace those treated by microneedling, your skin will appear fuller, supple, and more radiant. The new skin created has a more even skin tone and texture and can be successful in improving the appearance of acne scars or sun or age spots.

Benefits of Microneedling

Microneedling in Charlotte is an excellent way to treat a variety of facial skin concerns including:

  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Areas of skin laxity
  • Enlarged pores
  • Acne and other scars

What Can I Expect During Microneedling?

Microneedling is performed in the privacy of our Charlotte, North Carolina facilities allowing you to relax comfortably. A topical numbing cream will be applied before the treatment begins, further adding to your comfort. Then, Dr. Criswell will carefully perform the microneedling procedure to create microinjuries to stimulate deep cell renewal. These injuries are so small that they are almost invisible to the eye. The entire procedure typically takes 30 minutes to complete.

What is the Recovery from Microneedling Like?

You may notice mild to moderate swelling and redness following a microneedling procedure. Many patients compare this to a mild sunburn. This is temporary and should subside within a few days. As your skin begins to renew itself, you may notice light peeling as well. Since microneedling is only minimally-invasive, you may return to your usual activities as soon as you feel comfortable. It is important that you protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays following a microneedling treatment, as it will be more sensitive to sun damage.
