What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a treatment that punctures small holes in the skin on your face, neck, or other areas of the body to stimulate skin restoration. Our facility uses the SkinPen®, a state-of-the-art device, to perform this procedure. As an additional bonus, your platelet-rich plasma (PRP) may be administered to the same region to help cells heal and permit the skin to begin growing new cells. Both of these procedures together can decrease the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots, large pores, scars, fine lines, and other skin conditions. The surface of your skin may be significantly enhanced to look smoother and more even in tone without damaging the epidermis. If you'd like to find out more about microneedling with or without PRP, contact board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters in New Orleans, LA to schedule a private consultation.

Is Microneedling Right for Me?

A great candidate for microneedling is any individual seeking to alter the look or feel of the top layer of their skin. Uneven skin tone, dry skin, coarse texture, loose skin, age spots, acne, wrinkles, and scarring are skin conditions that may benefit from microneedling therapy. This procedure may also be utilized to fight the effects of sun damage that might have caused skin to have a rough feel or hyperpigmentation.

How is Microneedling Performed?

If you've chosen to utilize PRP therapy, a member of our team will take a sample of your blood before your session. The blood will then be transferred to the separation process during which the platelets, growth factors, and regenerative cells can be turned into PRP. For your microneedling therapy, Dr. Jules Walters employs innovative technology using the SkinPen device to make small holes in your skin. The fine needles used won't harm your skin but instead will help stimulate the creation of collagen. When the microneedling is done, the PRP serum may be placed on the epidermis to sink in. Once the PRP is completely absorbed, we'll clear away the serum and cleanse the skin.

What Results Can I Expect from Microneedling?

After your procedure, you could encounter some regular effects, such as swelling, bruising, and redness. Dr. Walters recommends that patients avoid the use of makeup, cleansing with exfoliating face washes, or swimming in pools for around three days following the session. Activities like this could expose the treatment area to strong bacteria and chemicals that may cause negative side effects. You also need to reduce exposure to the sun or use protective steps when planning to be outdoors. Full results are usually noticed within the first month as the skin works to fix and heal itself.
