Unlock the Benefits of Microneedling at Rao Plastic Surgery

Do you dream of achieving vibrant, youthful skin without the need for surgery or invasive procedures? Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a remarkable non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment offered at our Tucson, AZ practice. At Rao Plastic Surgery, we utilize the cutting-edge SkinPen® technology to perform microneedling, a procedure that involves the use of multiple fine needles to create micro-injuries in the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate your body’s natural production of elastin and collagen, essential components that contribute to the overall health and appearance of your skin. Additionally, microneedling can help reduce the appearance of pores, stretch marks, and scars. If you’re interested in learning more about the benefits of microneedling and how it can be customized to address your specific skin concerns and goals, we invite you to schedule a consultation with our skilled aesthetic team.

Who Is an Ideal Candidate for Microneedling?

Microneedling may be a suitable option if you have mild to moderate complexion concerns, such as rough skin texture or decreased elasticity. This procedure can also address issues like stretch marks, scars, and enlarged pores. It’s important to note that results from microneedling take some time to become noticeable, as collagen and elastin production require time to have a visible impact on your skin. However, the results are natural-looking and contribute to healthier, more resilient skin.

The Advantages of Microneedling

Microneedling treatments at Rao Plastic & Hand Surgery offer a wide range of benefits to rejuvenate your skin’s health and appearance, including:

  • Improvement in various skin issues
  • Reduction of lines, wrinkles, and signs of aging
  • Enhanced skin firmness and tightness
  • Stimulation of collagen and elastin production
  • Diminished skin discoloration, imperfections, spots, and more
  • Reduction in scars, stretch marks, and acne scars
  • Softening of rough skin texture
  • Minimization of large pores
  • Quick and easy treatments
  • Minimal downtime

Recovery After Microneedling

You may experience mild redness and swelling for approximately one day following the procedure, but these side effects typically resolve naturally. It may take one to two months for the increased collagen and elastin supply to produce significant changes in the appearance and health of your skin. For optimal results and long-term skin health, we recommend a series of 4 to 6 follow-up treatments, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.

Understanding the Microneedling Procedure

A microneedling treatment using the SkinPen device typically takes 30 to 60 minutes to complete and can be performed with numbing cream. Most patients experience mild or no discomfort during the procedure. The targeted area is thoroughly cleansed, and then the SkinPen microneedling handpiece is evenly applied. Following the treatment, a moisturizer appropriate for your skin type will be gently massaged in, along with the application of UV protection, as the treated skin may be more sensitive.

Commonly Asked Questions About A Microneedling

How much does microneedling cost?

During your consultation, Dr. Rao will assess your skin and create a personalized treatment plan. He will then discuss the costs associated with your treatment and provide you with details about what to expect during the procedure. Rao Plastic Surgery often offers special pricing on treatment packages, so be sure to inquire about any current promotions during your consultation.

What exactly is microneedling?

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive treatment designed to enhance skin health. Collagen, a natural fibrous protein, is essential for maintaining smooth, supple, and firm skin. However, collagen production naturally decreases with age, resulting in thinner and less elastic skin. Microneedling creates tiny skin wounds that stimulate new skin cell growth and increase collagen production. As the skin heals, it appears healthier, firmer, and more radiant

Can I combine other treatments with microneedling?

Microneedling creates channels in the skin that facilitate the absorption of other treatments, such as specialized serums or platelet-rich plasma (PRP). These additional treatments can enhance the results of microneedling and can be discussed during your initial consultation with Dr. Rao.
