Do you struggle with the formation of fine lines and wrinkles associated with aging? Is your skin pigmentation uneven? Have you been interested in learning more ways to improve the skin’s texture and tone without the need for surgical interventions? The doctors of Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads are here to help! We offer a wide selection of non-invasive skin treatment options, including one of our more popular solutions called microneedling.
What is microneedling?
When patients are interested in enhancing the skin’s overall appearance, they may feel as though at-home skin products are the only answer. Fortunately, with continued improvements in plastic surgery and dermatology, the team of Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads can provide an in-house treatment that can jumpstart healthy skin. Our microneedling services, achieved with the use of the Bellus Medical “SkinPen,” enhances the skin with just a few treatments. The SkinPen has hundreds of very small needles that are run along the facial skin to create tiny punctures in the epidermis and dermis. These punctures stimulate the body’s natural healing process, during which collagen and elastin are produced. In doing so, the skin essentially heals itself and allows for a more youthful, beautiful appearance!
Microneedling is a comfortable treatment performed in our practice, thanks to the use of topical numbing creams. Patients relax in the treatment chair as we use the SkinPen along the skin. While the results are not immediate and occur over several weeks, patients will notice sooner than later that their skin is radiant and glowing after just a few sessions. Patients find this treatment to be transformative without being expensive, and are pleased that it provides rejuvenation without surgery. Microneedling is one of many non-surgical treatments available at our practice for patients to consider.
