If you’re looking for a way to enhance your skin’s health and appearance, you’ll find many different treatments at our clinic. Among these, a technique known as microneedling stands out for its effectiveness and simplicity. It’s a non-invasive option that can help rejuvenate your skin and provide many other benefits.

At The Face Place in Baton Rouge, we want to help you revitalize your skin non-invasively and with as little inconvenience on your part as possible. Our approach to microneedling is informed by our expertise in dermatological health and a commitment to providing our patients with the best solutions.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling involves the use of a special device equipped with fine needles to create tiny punctures on the skin’s surface. This process is designed to stimulate the skin’s natural healing mechanisms, leading to improved texture and appearance.

How Does Microneedling Work?

Our approach to microneedling delicately stimulates the skin’s natural healing mechanisms. The treatment involves the use of fine needles that create microchannels in the skin, activating the skin’s fibroblasts. This activation is crucial for the synthesis of collagen and elastin, essential components for skin elasticity and firmness. Over time, this gentle yet effective process contributes to a visibly smoother and more youthful skin appearance.

How Can Microneedling Improve Your Skin’s Appearance?

Reduction of Fine Lines and Wrinkles

One microneedling benefit is its ability to diminish fine lines and wrinkles. When your body is producing more collagen, the elasticity of the skin can improve. This gives more support to the upper layers of skin, softening lines and making them less noticeable.

Improved Skin Texture

Microneedling treatments can be effective in enhancing the skin’s texture. The treatment’s ability to regenerate skin cells can result in a smoother, more refined skin surface. It can also help soften skin that has become rough or leathery and firm up crepey or thin skin.

Improved Appearance of Acne Scars

One of the microneedling results you can look forward to is the reduction of acne scars. Microneedling for acne scars works by promoting skin regeneration, which gradually reduces the visibility of these scars, leading to a clearer complexion.

Reduction of Pore Size

Microneedling also contributes to the improvement in the appearance of large pores. This is achieved through collagen and elastin production and tightening of the skin, which can make pores less prominent.

Enhanced Skin Radiance

An additional microneedling benefit is the enhancement of skin radiance. Over time, the skin can appear dull because of the dead skin cells that stay on the surface. However, this treatment can rejuvenate the skin, leading to a more vibrant, glowing complexion.

Improved Firmness of Sagging Skin

Through our microneedling services, there is a noticeable improvement in the firmness of sagging skin. Areas that are prone to sagging, like the skin along the jawline or the thin tissue below the eyes, can be tightened for a more youthful and awake look.

Improved Efficacy of Skincare Products

Post-treatment, microneedling results include an improved absorption of skincare products. Because of the microchannels that are made in your skin, your skin is temporarily more receptive to topical products, allowing it to soak in nourishing and hydrating ingredients. 

Reversal of Hair Loss

If you are struggling with thinning hair, we can also use microneedling for hair loss. The treatment can stimulate the scalp and help revive hair follicles, potentially reversing hair thinning and loss.

What Are the Different Types of Microneedling?

PRP Microneedling

Microneedling with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) combines traditional microneedling with the application of PRP, which is taken from your blood before the treatment. The PRP enhances the healing process, potentially leading to more pronounced rejuvenation effects.

PRF Microneedling

Another variant is PRF microneedling, which utilizes platelet-rich fibrin. This substance is a step beyond PRP in efficiency. In this technique, the fibrin matrix, also rich in platelets and growth factors, is applied to the skin post-microneedling, further enhancing skin regeneration and healing.

RF Microneedling

RF microneedling introduces radiofrequency energy into the equation. By combining microneedling with RF energy, this technique not only induces even more collagen production but can also provide enhanced skin tightening.

Microneedling With Hyaluronic Acid

In our microneedling treatment, we can incorporate a unique hyaluronic acid (HA) serum enriched with peptides. Applied topically after the microneedling treatment, this HA blend deeply hydrates the skin and complements collagen induction, resulting in enhanced skin smoothness and hydration.

An Overview of Your Microneedling Treatment

Before Your Treatment

Preparing for your microneedling session begins with proper skincare and an informative consultation. It’s important to keep your skin well-nourished and avoid harsh treatments or excessive sun exposure before the appointment. During your consultation, we’ll discuss your skin concerns and goals to decide the most suitable microneedling approach for you. Feel free to ask any questions so you can be fully informed and comfortable with the process.

During Your Treatment

The actual microneedling session involves a meticulous technique where a device with fine needles is used on your skin. While some clients worry about discomfort, the treatment is generally well-tolerated, thanks to a topical anesthetic that can be applied beforehand. You might feel a mild “sandpaper” sensation, but it’s usually not painful. The duration of the treatment varies depending on the targeted area and the specific type of microneedling being performed.

After Your Treatment

Post-treatment, it’s normal to experience some redness and minor scabbing. This is your body’s healing response and usually subsides within a few days. Visible improvements in skin texture and appearance can be expected within a few weeks as collagen production ramps up. For lasting results, we may recommend a series of treatments, spaced out over a few months. The frequency and total number of sessions will depend on your individual skin type and the treatment goals established during your consultation.
