Microneedling is a great choice for men and women who want to improve common skin concerns, including:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Loose or thin skin
- Enlarged pores
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a device with multiple small microneedles to help restore skin by activating the production of collagen and elastin fibers. Every microscopic puncture in the skin will send a signal to your body that there is an injury needing to be healed though it is invisible to the naked eye. This will increase collagen growth in the target areas, helping to improve your particular skin concerns while giving you overall tighter skin.
How does Microneedling work?
During your treatment, Dr. Robb will apply an anesthetic topical cream to help numb the skin and keep you comfortable. Then he will use a small handheld device with several tiny needles at the end which will be used to pierce the skin at a high speed and shallow depth. You may experience some redness or swelling, but that should fade within a couple of days. You will begin to see your smoother, youthful skin in about one to two weeks, and it will improve over time as your body continues to heal and produce more collagen.
Dr. Robb creates a unique plan for each of his Tennessee patients to match their skin to the appropriate level of treatment. Part of this individualized treatment approach will be to determine how many microneedling sessions you will need to get the results you desire.
Why choose Microneedling?
Microneedling has been an effective way to conquer a range of skin imperfections over the years. If your acne scars refuse to disappear, or you find yourself trying to hide these imperfections under layers of makeup, it’s time to get to the root of the problem and jumpstart your body’s natural healing process with microneedling. Dr. Robb recommends this treatment to any of his Tennessee patients who are ready for fresh, healthy skin without the damage.
