Microneedling Results - Collagen Induction
Therapy in Alpharetta, GA
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that helps to restore skin. It helps the skin and body create new elastin and collagen by using a device with fine needles that create tiny punctures in the surface layer of the skin. It can help with scars, pore size, the texture of the skin, stretch marks, and overall improved texture. At Sculpted Contours, we can combine Microneedling with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) or another vitamin-rich serum.
Microneedling can help you if you have mild or moderate scarring from acne, stretch marks, large pores, fine lines, or loose skin.
Does Microneedling Hurt?
Prior to the treatment, our experts will numb your skin with a topical numbing cream to help minimize pain. We often hear this is a very easy procedure.
What To Expect After A MicroNeedling Treatment?
Most people will experience redness and mild swelling in a similar way as mild sunburn for 24-48 hours and there may be minimal pin-point bleeding and/or bruising. Within a week or two, you will notice that your skin is smoother and more radiant looking but the full effects won’t be seen until a few months later.
There is very little downtime if any with Microneedling!
Any redness experienced fades very quickly to a pinkish tint that may last up to 48 hours. In order to reduce visible redness, we recommend Environ Medical Grade Skin Care after the procedure, and always use sunscreen to protect your fresh skin.
