Atlanta Microneedling

Microneedling (with or without PRP)

Microneedling triggers the body’s natural wound healing process, resulting in skin remodeling. This includes the formation of new collagen and elastin, the softening of fine lines and wrinkles, scar, hyperpigmentation and pore reduction. Resulting in smoother, brighter skin.

How Microneedling Works

Have you ever seen lawn aeration?  You know...where there is a special tool used to create small holes in your lawn?  That is exactly what microneedling is doing with your skin.  The science is that these small little microscopic injuries stimulate your body's own natural healing response.  That healing response is to generate new collagen and elastin to replace that injury.  That new collagen and elastin are what give your face the results you are looking for in microneedling.

Results like:

  • More even skin tone
  • More even skin texture
  • Reduced pore size
  • Reduced fine lines and wrinkles

Microneedling is one of our most popular procedures because it works and offers our patients little downtime so that they can get the results they want and get back to life!

Microneedling at Home

Microneedling at home has become a big trend recently with all of the information out there about the benefits of microneedling.  However, home microneedling devices or "rollers" have a few different characteristics than medical-grade devices.

First, the needles used are usually much duller than the needles used in a medical-grade device.  Second, medical-grade microneedling devices use a disposable head which ensures that each treatment is delivered with the sharpest needles possible to decrease complications.  Next, home devices are generally not calibrated for depth like medical-grade microneedling devices.  A medical-grade device can be calibrated to deliver the precise depth of the needles to ensure you get the results your want.
