At OAS Plastic Surgery we offer a cutting-edge innovation in microneedling to improve skin quality for smooth, glowing results. This treatment gives patients a transformative, non-surgical, no downtime experience.
WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
Do you struggle with acne, large pores, facial scarring or wrinkles? There are many facial treatments available today that work to reduce these imperfections. Microneedling is a minimally-invasive procedure that uses tiny, medical grade needles to create microchannels in the skin. Once these channels have been made, a serum is applied to quickly rejuvenate the skin with impressive, quick results.
THE BENEFITS OF THIS TREATMENT
Microneedling treatments have many advantages, some of the more noted ones are:
- Decreased scarring
- Minimized wrinkles, lines and creases
- Decreased hyper-pigmentation
- Reduced acne and acne scarring
- Decreased allergic reaction
- Brightens skin
- Minimizes pores
- Firmer, smoother skin
You can enjoy softer, healthier skin with microneedling. After one treatment, you will immediately notice an improvement in your skin.
A plus for men is that microneedling does not negatively affect facial hair. In some cases, microneedling has been proven to improve hair growth on the face, helping to promote the growth of a thicker, fuller beard.
Microneedling for acne and acne scarring is also becoming a more common treatment. This treatment will not only improve the quality of your skin but will likely boost your confidence too!
Both men and women can greatly improve their skin with microneedling. An ideal candidate will experience:
- Large Pores
- Dull skin
- Loose skin
These are just a few of the concerns individuals will have that qualify them for a microneedling treatment. We recommend that anyone who is interested in the benefits of microneedling contact our office so they can learn more about this incredible skin treatment!
HOW TO PREPARE
Before your appointment, you will want to wash your skin and avoid putting any products on the predetermined treatment area. Stay hydratedon the morning of your appointment and don’t perform any activities that make you sweat. Sweating will dehydrate your skin and potentially cause irritation during the microneedling procedure.
When you are getting ready for your appointment, make sure to wear clothes that can easily be removed without applying pressure to your face or treatment area.
RECOVERY & RESULTS
This procedure is normally performed within a forty-five minute period and does not result in significant downtime. Your skin may be sensitive following the treatment and should not have makeup or other products applied for the first twenty-four hours. You will also want to avoid swimming, direct sunlight and sweating for the first twenty-four hours as well.
You will notice immediate improvements after your treatment. After two weeks you will notice significant improvement as your skin strengthens and produces a youthful glow. These results last for about a month and we suggest multiple treatments to help you achieve your best results.
A common treatment to receive with a microneedling procedure is injectable Fillers. Injectable fillers are a nonsurgical option for transforming your face! At OAS Plastic Surgery, we offer many different types of injectable fillers for our patients.
This family of fillers are hyaluronic acid-based (HA) and are commonly applied to the face to help reduce wrinkling and loss of volume. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers are a popular choice because hyaluronic acid is already found within our skin. HA attracts moisture and helps keep our skin smooth and soft.
This formula is comprised of a water-based gel with Calcium Hydroxylapatite particles throughout it. Radiesse is commonly used to fill in deep lines and creases. One of the main benefits of this filler is that it stimulates collagen growth. The Calcium Hydroxylapatite particles work to boost collagen levels. Collagen is largely responsible for keeping your skin structured and firm.
About three months after Radiesse injections, you’ll notice your skin becoming healthier on its own. This benefit helps to elongate your skin’s health as well as require less dermal filler injections.
At OAS Plastic Surgery, we offer three forms of Restylane. Restylane, Restylane Lyft and Restylane Defyne and Refyne. These formulations have been created to address specific areas and signs of facial aging such as fine wrinkles, severe lines, deep creases, lip plumping or augmenting the cheekbones and chin.
Dermal fillers combined with microneedling treatment are perfect for people who do not want the downtime an invasive surgery would take.
Dermal fillers are gently applied with a syringe and thin needle. Topical anesthesia is often used to increase comfort before the injections. However, if you are sensitive to discomfort, ask about our other anesthesia options for a dermal filler treatment. You will notice improvement as the dermal filler is being injected. This allows you to interact with the treatment and suggest adjustments. Dr. Suarez is also able to make any changes in real time to allow for your ideal outcome. Once completed, you can return to your daily schedule!
If you have a busy life or are not interested in surgery to treat your concerning areas, consider combining microneedling with dermal fillers for a naturally enhancing solution!
The microneedling treatment has customizable aspects that allow us to personalize your treatment. This customized approach causes costs to vary between our patients.
