Recent years have seen a growing trend in Georgia towards non-surgical skin treatment methods and procedures due to their ability to offer significant benefits without the need for incisions that can prolong the healing process. Microneedling is an increasingly popular skin rejuvenation treatment that can help minimize the appearance of lines, wrinkles, scars, and blemishes. It involves the use of a handheld device to puncture the skin’s outermost layer to promote skin remodeling and the diminishment of skin imperfections.

What are the benefits?
One of the main benefits of a microneedling treatment is that you will require far less downtime than a surgical procedure. This is because there are no large incisions that will need healing. Less damage to skin tissue means less time spent in recovery. Most patients are able to resume their normal activities immediately after their treatment.
Microneedling also has the benefit of offering significant results that appear quite subtle and natural. This is because your own body is remodeling your skin to resemble what it looked like years ago.
Microneedling is able to reduce the appearance of common skin problems like scars, wrinkles, and stretch marks. Although it can offer significant results, the benefits will become evident over the course of the following weeks and months, resulting in a more gradual, natural change.
What is a treatment like?
A microneedling treatment starts when we apply a numbing solution to your skin to ensure your comfort during your treatment. After that, we pass the microneedling device over the surface of your skin to create many tiny injuries. Although they are invisible to the naked eye, these micro-injuries trigger a skin rejuvenation process that results in fewer lines, wrinkles, and scars.
Can I have this procedure at the same time as another procedure?
Yes. Microneedling works very well in conjunction with the application of topical skin care products. This is because the numerous punctures created by the treatment allow these products to better penetrate your skin. Your skin possesses an outer barrier called the stratum corneum that prevents some products from being absorbed by your skin. The punctures created by microneedling help ointments, gels, creams, and lotions bypass this outer skin layer to dramatically improve their effectiveness and penetration.
Can I have multiple procedures?
Most patients will benefit from multiple treatment sessions. The results of a microneedling procedure are cumulative and build upon the results of previous treatments. However, it is important to keep in mind that you must wait several weeks between microneedling treatments so that your skin has time to heal adequately.
