Rediscover Your Skin's Brilliance
At Aesthetic Surgery of Charlotte microneedling is a treatment option for patients who want to address fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, acne, and other types of scarring. This procedure utilizes the skin’s ability to heal itself by producing collagen and elastin and is popular for how quickly it can be performed and its limited downtime.
Combining microneedling with PRF offers even greater benefits for your skin. A small blood sample is taken and processed during this procedure to produce PRF. This PRF is then applied to your skin as part of the microneedling treatment, enabling the growth factors to penetrate deeply and enhance the overall results.
Your Pathway to Ageless Beauty
Microneedling offers several key benefits, including diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in smoother, more youthful-looking skin. This treatment also effectively reduces acne scars, minimizes pore size, enhances skin texture and tone, and alleviates hyperpigmentation, leading to a more even and radiant complexion.
Microneedling is ideal for women and men in good overall mental and physical health with realistic expectations about what the procedure can accomplish. This treatment is appropriate for all skin types and colors and can be applied to parts of the skin that are too sensitive for other types of treatment, such as the neck and hands.
Microneedling is not appropriate for patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding, have had radiation treatment in the past year, used Accutane within the last year, and have open wounds or skin infections in the treatment area. The best method of assessing whether you are a good candidate for microneedling is to schedule a skincare consultation with our licensed aesthetician.Request a Consultation
Revive Your Skin's Radiance
Prior to your treatment with microneedling Charlotte aesthetic specialists at our practice will conduct a consultation to assess your skin and discuss your treatment goals. During this session, we will outline the microneedling process and address any questions to ensure you feel well-informed and comfortable before proceeding. With our expertise and cutting-edge equipment, you can trust that you're in capable hands at Aesthetic Surgery of Charlotte.
What can I expect during a microneedling procedure?
Patients should arrive at a microneedling appointment without makeup. The aesthetician will clean your skin and apply a numbing cream to minimize discomfort during the treatment, then run a small handheld pen with small needles over the skin, penetrating to a depth of up to 2 millimeters. This prompts the skin to heal itself, producing collagen, which gives the skin a smooth, hydrated appearance. The entire process should last about an hour.
The number of treatment sessions required depends on the severity of the condition being addressed. Patients with acne scars may require four to six treatments, while more severe scars might require more. Many patients choose to schedule once-a-year appointments to maintain their results. During the skincare consultation, the aesthetician will provide a recommended treatment plan that will include the number of microneedling sessions the patient requires to achieve their goals.
Rejuvenate & Renew
Improvements are typically noticeable within four to six weeks, although the full impact takes several months to develop. You can expect fewer fine lines and wrinkles, along with enhanced skin texture and tone. When PRF is incorporated into the treatment, accelerated healing, and improved skin regeneration are likely as well.
For optimal results, most Charlotte microneedling patients require multiple sessions. Your skincare professional will suggest a personalized treatment plan tailored to your skin's specific needs.
Unleash Your Skin's Natural Beauty
The side effects of a microneedling session are minimal and typically last between one and three days. Patients can expect to experience redness and swelling, which may feel similar to a sunburn. The treatment is extremely safe when performed under the right conditions—namely, by a trained and licensed medical expert. Following a microneedling procedure, we encourage patients to use sunblock and avoid direct sunlight. We will also provide aftercare instructions, including when it’s safe to begin wearing makeup, which products and substances to avoid, and which products and substances can help assist with healing.
Although microneedling can cause mild discomfort, the majority of patients consider the experience tolerable and even relaxing. To help alleviate discomfort, we apply a numbing cream to your skin before the procedure.
Microneedling results can last several months to a year, depending on each individual and their skin's natural aging process. Scheduling regular maintenance treatments can prolong the effects of your initial session.
