Microneedling in Savannah, GA
Collagen plays a vital role in the health and appearance of the skin. With microneedling treatments at Savannah Plastic Surgery, you can naturally restore collagen in the skin and enjoy a wealth of cosmetic and skin health benefits as a result. We offer this and other skin care treatments to the men and women living in Savannah, Georgia, and the surrounding areas of Chatham County.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy, is a skin care technique that takes advantage of the body's natural healing properties to rejuvenate the skin. The microneedling treatment involves the use of tiny needles, which are used to puncture the skin. This triggers a healing response in the body, causing an increase in collagen production. Since the wounds caused by microneedling are very minor, they are quickly healed. The remaining collagen helps to plump the skin in the treatment area, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles and producing a more youthful appearance. Microneedling is primarily used to address signs of aging, but it can be helpful for all of the following skin concerns:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Scars and acne scars
- Stretch marks
How Much Does Microneedling Cost?
The cost of microneedling treatments at Savannah Plastic Surgery can vary. The exact cost of your treatment will depend on variables that include your treatment goals and the number of treatment sessions necessary to achieve those goals. During your consultation, we will discuss these factors in order to develop a personalized treatment plan and provide you with the exact cost of treatment. We can also determine your eligibility for health insurance coverage at this time. To learn more about our insurance policies or your payment options, please refer to our financing and insurance page.
What is the Microneedling Treatment Like?
The microneedling treatment begins with the application of a topical anesthetic, which will minimize any discomfort that may occur during the treatment process. Once the skin has been prepared, a microneedling device will be used to make small punctures in the skin's surface. This will be repeated over the entire treatment area. The microneedling treatment takes approximately 30 minutes to perform.
What is the Microneedling Recovery Like?
After the microneedling treatment, it is common to experience some redness and swelling in the treatment area. Within the next day or two, there may be some light scabbing or bleeding. However, these side effects heal within a week of treatment and you will begin to notice the benefits of microneedling.
What Microneedling Results Can I Expect?
The microneedling results will become visible after the skin has healed. Additionally, because collagen production and implementation is a slow process, the results from microneedling will continue to improve gradually over the months following treatment. Many patients notice initial results within a few weeks of treatment, with more significant results developing approximately three months after treatment. The results from microneedling can be long-lasting, but we encourage patients to receive regular microneedling treatments to maintain their results as long as possible.
