Microneedling

Many people are concerned about the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of aging that have developed over the years. If you want to improve your skin tone, reduce the size of your pores and fade scars and stretch marks, microneedling could be an excellent choice. This minimally invasive, non-surgical facial treatment in Charlotte can help to reduce the signs of aging and put your most beautiful face forward.

At Queen City Plastic Surgery, we offer COSMOPen, a professional-grade microneedling system for people in Charlotte interested in facial rejuvenation. Unlike at-home treatments, COSMOPen provides deep stimulation that helps to enhance collagen production, improving the elasticity and youthfulness of your skin.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling, sometimes called skin needling or collagen induction therapy, helps to rejuvenate your skin without surgery. Our specially designed device contains tiny, fine needles that poke tiny holes in the skin. These needles are sterile and safe, and they help to induce your skin to produce additional collagen by creating thousands of microscopic channels beneath the skin’s surface.

We will then apply a skin cream or serum to the surface of the skin to aid your healing process. This procedure helps men and women in North Carolina by activating the body’s own natural processes to heal wounds and create healthy skin.

Microneedling can help to:

  • Reduce acne or surgical scars
  • Fade stretch marks
  • Minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduce the size and appearance of pores
  • Improve overall skin tone, including reducing hyperpigmentation

What are the Benefits of Microneedling?

Microneedling can be an excellent procedure for people who want to minimize the appearance of acne or surgical scars. Because this is a minimally invasive procedure, you can obtain significant skin rejuvenation benefits with the COSMOPen treatment without going through a lengthy recovery period.

Microneedling takes advantage of the self-renewing potential of your skin, prompting your skin to produce collagen on its own by stimulating it with tiny needles. This allows your skin’s rejuvenating power to be activated, producing a rejuvenated appearance.

This procedure can have a significant impact on many areas of concern. If you are troubled by stretch marks, visible pores, fine lines or wrinkles, microneedling can help to fade and minimize the appearance of all of these concerns.

Your plastic surgeon can expertly target specific areas for treatment. You do not have to use microneedling everywhere on the face. Instead, you can apply the treatment precisely where you are experiencing hyperpigmentation, visible pores or stretch marks. Microneedling has a high level of safety, so it can be used even on sensitive, thin skin or areas of scarring for excellent results.

Why Choose Microneedling?

Microneedling can provide a range of benefits for people in Charlotte who want to enhance their facial appearance. It is safe for people with all skin tones and reduces the risk of scarring or hyperpigmentation. It is also a safe choice for people with sensitive or thin skin, including areas near the eyes. There are no demarcation lines indicating where treatment was performed, so people can target specific problem areas or scar sites.

You can begin to see the results of microneedling after your first treatment at Queen City Plastic Surgery. For best results, a series of treatments can best help to improve your skin. You may begin the process with three treatments scheduled every other month; follow-up treatments are usually scheduled three months apart.

What is the Downtime After Microneedling?

Microneedling produces minimal discomfort and downtime. In most cases, you will experience redness for around 24 hours. The special sheet mask that we use helps to minimize this effect as well as soothing, hydrating and cooling the skin. After your procedure, you should be sure to use sunscreen to protect your skin. You will receive detailed instructions about how to return to your skin care and makeup routine after your procedure. However, you can return to your regular activities as soon as you are comfortable.

Your plastic surgeon will provide you with detailed information about how to care for your skin, including other treatments that you can combine with microneedling for the best results. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Haque can work with you to develop a plan to optimize your skin care routine and help you enhance your natural beauty.
