About Microneedling

When home skin care products aren't effective but you aren't ready for surgery, consider nonsurgical skin rejuvenation treatments like microneedling. Plastic surgeon Dr. Talal Munasifi is pleased to offer microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) at his office in Arlington, VA. Microneedling uses many fine-gauge needles to safely and effectively create micro-injuries in the needed areas of the skin. The micro-injuries trigger the body's natural production of collagen and elastin, two nutrients that increase the health and appearance of the skin. Schedule a consultation at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center to learn more about the benefits of microneedling and ways to customize the treatment for your skin needs and goals.

Procedure Technique

Microneedling is performed in a treatment room in about 30 – 60 minutes with numbing cream or a local anesthesia if requested, but most patients feel mild or no discomfort. The skin being treated will be cleansed before the microneedling handpiece is passed evenly over. After the microneedling is performed, a topical treatment like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or a vitamin-infused serum can be applied for deeper penetration of the nutrients into the skin. A moisturizer will be massaged in along with sunscreen since your skin will be sensitive after the treatment.

What to Expect

You may have some swelling and redness for about a day, but this should subside quickly on its own. It may take about 1 – 2 months as the collagen and elastin levels increase before you see visible improvements in the health and appearance of your skin. You should plan to get about 4 – 6 maintenance treatments every 4 – 6 weeks for optimal results and lasting skin health.
