What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a non-invasive way to help treat uneven pigmentation, scarring, wrinkles, stretch marks, large pores and signs of aging.  COSMOPen is a professional-grade microneedling system that goes deeper than home devices and stimulates collagen production. Queen City Plastic Surgery offers Charlotte a state-of-the-art medical grade high-speed micro-needling system that can be used to treat acne and surgical scars—as well as wrinkles, stretch marks, pore size, and signs of aging. By vertically piercing the skin, CosmoPen helps naturally induce collagen production and treat pigmentation.

Micro-Needling, also called “Skin Needling” or “Collagen Induction Therapy” (CIT) is a medical aesthetic procedure that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles (micro-needling the skin) to induce endogenous production of cutaneous collagen.  Queen City Plastic Surgery offers CosmoPen in South Charlotte to provide percutaneous collagen induction (PCI) therapy or medical micro-needling. This technique that has been shown to increase the remolding of the skin by creating thousands of microscopic channels through the skin, to increase the formation of new tissue by activating the body’s wound healing cascade (hemostasis-inflammation-proliferation-tissue remodeling).  Men and women alike can benefit from microneedling.

What are the results from microneedling?  What is the downtime from microneedling?

Our patients have loved the results and have experienced minimal downtime and discomfort. While you will see results after one treatment, the best results are generally seen after several treatments.  Most people start with a series of three treatments every other month.  Then they maintain their results with treatments every three months or so.

After having microneedling, you will be red for a day or so.  We will put a sheet mask on you after the treatment which will help hydrate and cool the skin.  Then when you get home, make sure to moisturize and also to use adequate sun protection.  Then you can enjoy your beautiful skin!
