Microneedling in Nashville, TN

Microneedling treatment can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Plastic Surgery Affiliates offer microneedling to patients in Nashville, Brentwood, Hendersonville and the surrounding areas in Tennessee to correct fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, and a variety of other conditions.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for treating the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and improvement of the skin’s overall appearance. During this procedure, the SkinPen® is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in improvement of the appearance of softer wrinkles. Automated microneedling also creates superficial micro-channels which can be used with topical gels, creams and serums to help improve the appearance of the skin.

What Are The Benefits of Microneedling?

The benefits of microneedling can include a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. It also has a positive effect on the appearance of hyper-pigmentation, hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks and generally creates a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.

Where on the Body Can Microneedling Be Used?

Microneedling can be used on all parts of the body, including the: face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.

How is Microneedling Performed?

A sterile cartridge containing 12 tiny needles is attached to the SkinPen®. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of topical gel or serum to your skin and select the appropriate pen setting based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered.

What Does Microneedling Feel Like?

The feeling associated with the SkinPen® is similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating tip reduces discomfort while the applied hydrating gel also makes the treatment more tolerable. A topical numbing cream can also be used

How Long is a Microneedling Appointment?

The procedure takes 30-60 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.

What Is The Downtime?

Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the setting used and the number of overlapping passes performed. Most patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours.

When Will I See The Results?

Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results can continue to improve up to 6 months after a treatment as collagen production continues.

How Many Microneedling Treatments Will I Need?

Some patients only require a single treatment once per year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 3-6 treatments spaced about 4-6 weeks apart or, as a maintenance treatment, every 6 to 8 weeks. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars, it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 4-6-week intervals.

We start to develop fine lines and wrinkles as we age. Too much exposure to the sun can lead to dark spots or blemishes on the face, and pollutants in the air may also give the skin a dull appearance.
