Microneedling at Columbus Facial Plastics in Columbus, Ohio is a skin care treatment that stimulates your body’s wound healing response to promote collagen growth. The Microneedling device creates microscopic punctures in the skin which triggers new collagen development. We take advantage of these microscopic pathways by incorporating topical solutions to enhance collagen production and speed up the healing process. This customization results in smoother, firmer, younger looking skin. Results build with each treatment.
Number of Treatments
3-6 Microneedling treatments are recommended
Traditional Microneedling is an effective treatment for the face, neck and décolletage. We can treat more than one area at the same time. The advantage to this is that there will be only one “downtime” per treatment.
The average Microneedling treatment is between 30 minutes to 1 hour.
The typical recovery time for Microneedling is 3-5 days. Microneedling can be camouflaged the next day by using a medical grade product that we have in stock at Columbus Facial Plastics. This is a safe, healthy product that speeds healing and protects you from sun exposure.
During a Microneedling treatment, some patients experience mild discomfort, that will be addressed with a topical anesthetic. You may experience some redness, sensitivity, blotchiness, flakiness, bruising and a sunburned feeling. All potential side effects are temporary and expected.
Refreshed skin, brighter skin tone, reduction in pore size, increased firmness, reduction in lines and wrinkles and visible improvement in acne scars. Results can be long lasting depending on daily home care and quarterly or yearly follow-up. We will create a product protocol customized for you to protect your skin and build on your result.
