Almost everyone who reaches a certain age wishes for a more youthful appearance, but not everyone is ready to undergo a surgical procedure. Skin spots or discoloration, rough texture, and fine lines can all cause you to look and feel older than you actually are. With microneedling in Oklahoma City, you can restore a youthful facial appearance without having to undergo surgery.
Microneedling is a non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedure that can be performed on anyone who is wanting to improve various signs of aging. It works by stimulating your skin’s natural healing cycle to restore a youthful appearance. Dr. Fogleman and Dr. Benien are able to treat several skin concerns with microneedling, such as fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, or minor scars (such as acne scarring).
This procedure can also be used to treat areas that are hard to reach—for example, around the eyes or mouth—with other non-surgical procedures such as laser treatments or deeper chemical peels. Although microneedling is most commonly performed to treat the facial skin, it can also be used on the hands and chest.
During your consultation, your Oklahoma City cosmetic surgeon will listen carefully to your goals for your microneedling treatment. He will go over the procedure in detail and work with you to develop a unique treatment plan for you. Your Oklahoma City cosmetic surgeon may recommend a series of multiple microneedling for best lightening the appearance of certain scars.
When you begin your microneedling treatment, your Oklahoma City cosmetic surgeon will start by cleansing the skin of the treatment area. A topical cream is then applied to help numb the skin and reduce any discomfort during the procedure. Dr. Fogleman or Dr. Benien will then carefully brush the microneedling device over the treatment site. As the microneedling hand tool is passed over the skin, tiny needles are gently applied to the skin’s surface, creating micro-injuries that stimulate your body’s healing response. Over time, this leads to new collagen production and improved skin elasticity.
Once your microneedling procedure is complete, you can return home with little to no downtime. Your skin may feel sensitive at first and some redness is common, but this should fade within a couple days of your treatment.
It will take some time to see the full effect of the microneedling procedure. Your skin will gradually improve as its healing process continues to create new collagen and increase elasticity. Most patients benefit from a series of 3-6 treatments performed every couple of weeks. Over time, you will notice beautiful improvements in the look and feel of your skin.
